I think the current plans are awful, cramming more buildings, and adding the villas on the water will ruin what was once a beautiful, relaxing resort, with pretty landscaping.
That is just about what I am thinking as well.

I think right now I would also like to know the time table for construction, what will be down when. That way I can make some decisions about where we will stay next summer, don't want to get stuck in the middle of gch rehab or major stuff by the pool or beach.

Now I am wondering why they bothered to rehab longhouses that are going to be torn down?

Tikiman reported on Facebook that Phase 1 of Poly DVC will be completed in 2015.

I really wish they would not add DVCs to the Poly. The resort is small & wonderful just the way it is. Adding DVC (IMO) will ruin the resort & take away everything that we love about it.
I agree with the other poster who suggested a DVC resort on its own.

I think it's a fantastic idea. The DVC at BLT did not add a significant load to the monorail. It remains to be seen what effect the GF will have on the load.

I was not tempted to add on more DVC points at GF, but might be tempted for the Poly.

I *believe* Phase one will be the villas built into the pre existing long houses.

I just saw that Spirit of Aloha will be stopping shows as of Oct 1? I guess we could assume that is where they wil start construction?

I just wish they would leave well enough alone. I understand that the DVC is a big money maker for them and that is basically their bottom line, but why take away from the charm of resorts like the GF and Poly? Like a previous poster has mentioned, bulid something somewhere else. Lord knows you have the space.

I thought they did it right with OKW and later on, SSR. Look at what happened with the BCV. They built it and now Storm Along Bay is jammed packed all summer. Think about all of the additional guests who now pile into these resorts.

Getting a dining reservation at Ohana is hard enough. Good luck to anyone trying to get one once the DVC is built there. It will be a mess.

We are BC fans first and foremost and only stay there. That being said we frequently visit the monorail resorts during our vacations. I have always loved the charm and feel of the Poly and the elegance of the GF (not a CR fan) and feel like some of that will be compromised with the addition of DVC.

I think it's a real shame.

If they do a DVC at the Poly I will:

1) pass out from excitement..

2) Buy tons of points.

Poly is my favorite resort!
