I wish I did, hate to make you upset for no reason. The bartender at the poly said this to a guest so take that for what it is worth ...., just info to ask about in case...hope you have a wonderful trip! The poly is great

I don't think that the question was about the price of the resort....more about construction updates.

I agree with you. We stay and pay for the Poly when we can because for us the resort is the vacation. The Poly is amazingly magical!

My point was that the thread got a little off topic from original question, which does happen on long threads. Anyone have some construction updates?

So are they really going to build a hotel in the middle of the water? I think that is pretty cool.

I want to stay at Poly in April 2014, but am considering the GF as I don't want to stay where construction is going on.
I agree with this. I highly doubt any major construction will be going on the in November. I would keep a eye on it though because I had read the DVC would start later this year so that could mean November.

Perhaps to you and others, it is "stupid" (perhaps frivolous would be a better word choice) to pay just for a bed.

And as you know, but ignore, many people are happy paying for the location (easy access to/from 2 WDW parks via multiple methods, easy access to many restaurants, view of the castle, on the water so boat rental right there) and amenties (larger bed, larger room, multiple pools with a slide, beach, torch lighting, theming, landscaping, etc.). Our famly is one of those. If our financial picture was different, perhaps we would feel differently.
Yeah, that's very true! My DH and I love the Poly for the atmosphere and location. We had thought of staying at one of the Epcot resorts but we love that the Poly is easy access to MK and Epcot.

Same here!! My DH and I take one vacation each year for a week so when it comes to vacation paying the price to stay at the Poly is worth it to us. The rest of the year we work and save up for our vacation, it doesn't mean we don't enjoy life outside of vacation, we just watch more of what we spend and manage our finances so that we can spend more on vacation.

We are staying at the Poly for the first time in November. I am slightly worried about the DVC construction starting as it seems they will start over at Luau Cove and I spent a great deal of time choosing what longhouse I wanted to request, decided on Fiji Luau Cove side before I heard about the DVC construction starting late 2013.

The pool closing worries me too as I have a Cabana reserved for a Poly pool day.

Worst case scenario I will have to request a different Longhouse and ditch the Cabana pool day.

99% sure I will keep my Poly Reservation.
