It wouldnt have been so bad if the truks werent beeping all day long. We like to spend afternoons at the resort relaxing, but this was not to be. We had split our stay and splurged for the first time at a deluxe for only 3 days. I had done my research and really wanted this location so its really unfortunate. I understand that construction has to go on, but I question them selling those rooms so obviously affected by the close noise.
Was it better after they moved your room? I know that's a big pain, though. I agree you shouldn't have to do that.

Hawaii is supposed to be done in March, so unless they fall terribly behind schedule you should be fine!

What is the current status of the pool closure? I tried talking to the resort and they didn't seem to know what I was talking about-- said only the GF pool was scheduled to be closed.

Only location that i could think of that would be better for kids is maybe the Tahiti building but not sure what views you'd have there.
Thanks so much. sounds like a great room...hopefully we get the same view!
Were you affected by the renovations?

After only making it about half way thru this thread, I couldn't stand it anymore and called for reservations for Sept 12 thru 19th!!!! My granddaughter, aged 20, is so excited she can hardly sit still! We are taking her daughter who will be a year old with us. Now we just have to decide on where we want to eat! This will be our first trip to a deluxe after 30 some trips! Cannot beleive we are really going!!!!!! I will be haunting this thread until we leave and most likely ask alot of questions. Some will most likely be foolish so I hope that you will all be patient with me!!!!

Very happy for you! How exciting the coming months will be for you with planning and counting down. And the Polynesian is not one to disappoint! We just got back after spending a wonderful week there last month, and my only complaint is that I did not plan ENOUGH resort time in, so I booked a bounce back for Nov. My five year old would have been happy if we just stayed at "her beach" and played in the sand and went in the pool. And when you are going you will have more than enough pool weather (Sept). We got very lucky in January with 80+ degree weather a few days. It really takes you away being there and I hate to say it but you almost feel like the park is a plus when you are there. The movies on the beach and marshmallows on the beach, not to mention watching wishes from the beach while sipping on a drink......Prepare to enter paradise. Oh and it will be great with the ease of the monorail and a stroller..

Just Back

We had a wonderful stay 2/1-2/8. Our room was perfect, Tokelau 3943. It had a perfect center view of the pool. All the CMs and Mousekeeping were spot on. Saw the construction but it didn't affect our stay except that the quicker path to the main pool was closed. Our DD really enjoyed the kids club. Ohana still has the newer menu with one sauce. We all loved the Luau. At check in, Christine (looked like some sort of greeter) was amazing to my girls and really stared it off great.

When are all of the renovations going to be done? We are going in May and want to stay at the Poly but don't want our first stay there marred by Reno noise.

They won't be done by May. They are only doing two longhouses at a time. Depending on which longhouse you're in you may not even be very aware that there is work going on (or you could be right next door). You can always request to be moved if noise is a problem.
