Very sorry to hear about your situation. Hopefully you can grab on to some hope that you will indeed revisit Poly with your ENTIRE family intact soon.

I think there's normally one premium and two regular cabanas, but because of weather damage they're down to one and one.

I have a strange request - once you're back, any chance you can post what the evening offerings are for Saturday? From other posts, I've been able to piece together the offerings for all the other nights, but I'm still missing Saturday. Thanks!!

So I put my room requests in....Samoa or Tokelau top floor. We aren't super picky but we do want what we want! Anyhow...on our resort ressie email that came through it says Samoa or Toc on top floor....will they know this is Tokelau or would you call yet again to have it worded differently obsessing over here!!! 53 days....

Ok thanks. I remember reading about that, but wasn't sure if the other one was ready yet. I'm hoping that anyone just back can post any progress on the other cabana? I may check the tikiman site too. We will be at Poly soon and I really wanted one as a birthday surprise....

Did they actually tell you that there is a waiting list? I reserved it 6 months ago when there were two cabanas and I'm hoping they didn't double book.

No, I don't think they actually used those words (waiting list), but they claim they are checking a couple times a day for me, so in my mind I view it as a waiting list. They (CL IPO) were just in touch with me yesterday and said there were still no openings. I think I'll email today and ask if there is only one available at this time. I may need to come up with a Plan B for our birthday surprise. DH doesn't know I booked TPV, but he does know we're staying CL. So I guess I already have somewhat of a surprise...

I can't wait until I'm able to go down to the Polynesian again later this year. October can't come soon enough, but at least I was able to bring a bit of the Poly back home with me in this;



Picked it up off of eBay.

When I was there May 25 - 29, there was only one standard cabana. The one on the left - when looking at the cabanas from the pool (Mauna Kea) - is completely gone and there is just the empty concrete spot.

I reserved a standard cabana for a half day but when I went to check in, the standard cabana was occupied. It turns out they had reserved it 'before' me and so they got it. I think it was more that they reserved it for the entire day rather than a half. But before I could weep and be upset, they told me I was upgraded to the premium cabana for no additional charge. I was really worried about not getting the cabana but reservations assured me that if they had to cancel, they would call me.

We just changed our POR reservation to the Poly. We have always wanted to stay here and I am super excited. My husband and children don't know. I am going to surprise them when we get to disney. We are staying from 9/2 thru 9/9. What is the chance we will get a renovated room? Should we make a request for a certain building? We are staying in a standard room. Thanks for any help.

This is excellent info, thanks for posting. I checked Tikiman's site and in early May he posted the other cabana would/should be back in use "in a month or 2," so I'm hoping it's almost ready. I emailed IPO and will hear back tomorrow if the other cabana is ready or not.

Congrats on your upgrade!

How exciting.....you're gonna love the Poly . During our Poly stay we were in Samoa and loved it. It's conveniently located so it's just steps from the GCH, volcano pool, the beach, and Captain Cooks. Have a great trip .

If you want to be in the middle of all the action then request Samoa or Nuie. If you want quiet and close to the TTC but far from everything else go for Tahiti.
