It is almost like 2 vacations in one. If that is not an option, and you do feel that having a pool will be a major want/need on this trip, maybe discussing with the kids (I missed the ages of them) and see what their insight might be may help. We did our first split stay this past May and while I was concerned it might be a headache, it was a simple breeze and truly felt like I was able to enjoy 2 vacations in 1 week. Just another option to think about. Try to remain positive!
Thanks for the reply. I don't like the hassle of moving after a few nights, so would never consider a split stay. My kids are 5 and 7. We drive, so we bring lots of stuff!

I emailed disney last night about the volcano pool being closed in September. The response said that there was no info available about a refurbishment on the pool during my sept. travel dates. I just find it odd that it was sent out to travel agents, but disney doesn't have any info on it, unless it was changed until January and no update was sent to travel agents, like the Tikiman fb says. Hopefully, they will put it off to the cold months, which would make more sense. I guess I am just going to have to patiently wait and see what happens!

Today Tikiman reporting on his FB page that DVC construction will be much less then reported, not much details posted yet, seems like the new rumor is just Tahiti converted to DVC villas? Will keep an eye on his page and see what is the latest.

Thanks for the Tikiman tip . . . Does anyone know where they are in the room refurb process? A couple of months ago Tikiman was on the WDW Today podcast and his info at the time was that Tahiti and (I think) Rapa Nui would become DVC. He speculated that they might skip the refurb on those buildings for that reason (in fact, I think he had info that Rapa Nui would be torn down, but I may be mixing some facts up and it seems things have changed now, so it probably doesn't matter :D) . . . Anyway, we requested Tahiti for an early December trip, but if it's not getting refurb'ed I might want to switch our request to another building.

Anyone have any updates?

I am not seeing the reports of GCH having water feature removed? I know that was in the past but thought it was not true? Has it come up again? I guess until we hear offical from disney anything can happen.

I hope they don't use up more beach space. I really don't like the idea of the villas being built in the water. It will spoil the view for those in Tahiti. That beach is so quiet and peaceful over there.

I wonder what plans will be for the old Tangaroa Terrace building?
