According to tikiman's site, it looks like Tokelau is scheduled to start rehab at the end of March, and that they'll be on to Fiji by the end of May. Do you have different info? I just requested Tokelau myself for early May, so I'm hoping they'll be done with that by May.

I think Tokelau would be okay either at the other end or facing the other direction. The BEEP BEEP BEEPing sounds start early and last until 5-- M-F .. it is not a relaxing sound for sure.

have a great day!

One more sleep till we leave!

We decided to try 'Ohana again. We didn't have the best time there last time due to rushed service. But since we are staying Poly this time we thought "why not?' It has been a while and this time I will ask them to slooooow down.

So I made this decision not when I made my ADRs but (stupidly) only a couple weeks ago. Of course there are no reservations left for Friday night. I'd been trying and trying and only getting 9:45, which is too late with little kids.

Logged on this morning to try one last time and a 5:05 for 5 popped up. Perfect! I grabbed it and we're on! Hopefully this is a good omen for lots of pixie dust for us this trip.

We have a Lagoon View coming up in April. I wanted to request Tahiti also, but I was going to ask for 1st floor w/patio. It will be me, my DH & DGD. Any reason you like 3rd floor better? Also, having a LV, will we still have a glimpse of the Castle from certain LV areas/rooms?
BTW...ENJOY !!!

Tahiti 1st floor is our favorite! There is definitely a castle view from 1037- that was our first room at the Poly five years ago!

Not sure if LV at Tahiti would have view castle. We like 3rd floor cause the view is more likely unobstructed, less noise outside of the slider BUT we no longer have little ones.

I thought I read somewhere that each longhouse would take about 2 months. And of course, it's never set in stone when they will start or finish. I just love Tokelau so even if they are still rehabbing it, I hope they will have rooms available!

I sincerely hope I can keep this a secret. It's so hard for me. My daughter mentioned that she was glad she and her friend could share a bed rather than a pull out couch and it was hard not to tell her we would have that fabulous daybed too!

And it was so cute, her friend called this evening and they talked about what they were going to pack...for their American Girl dolls!!

Did you book a TPV or a LV when you stayed in 1037 ? Have you or anyone else here ever requested a "specific" room # ? I'm really starting to get excited now! Just wish my sciatica wasn't causing me crippling pain That's the one thing worrying me about this trip. I need to find relief quick !!!!

1037 was not a requested room, but it was booked as lagoon view. I have requested particular rooms-- our family has our favorites! Fingers crossed that we get our request for next week!

Hope you can find some relief- have you tried steroid shots? My dad did those for a while and they helped him.

I am sitting on my balcony on the second floor of tokelau facing the quiet pool. Very relaxing except for the occasional beeping of a truck backing up that is being used in the rehab oh Hawaii. I'm glad I'm more towards the front since the rooms by the lake face the Hawaii building and there is some barricading and construction workers going to and fro. Yesterday the path from the front of tokealu was blocked to the beach while they worked.

Off to Hollywood Studios :-)

Does anyone know if the volcano pool is closing for rehab soon? I've read speculation but haven't seen any facts. We are going Feb 20-27 and considering changing from BC to Poly (if we can).

I just read on Tikiman's page that Tahiti is scheduled to have its refurb begin on July 14th. This has me worried! We booked Lagoon View with Tahiti requested for our September 18-24 trip to the Poly. Now I'm a little worried that it may not be done in time for our trip. If it's not.....what would be my next best request for lagoon view rooms? This really has me bummed....this is our first time staying here and the last trip that we are pulling oldest DS out of school. Makes me want to !!
