As Tikiman pointed out, the volcano has only been there for 13 years. The resort opened in 1971 so the volcano is only a small part of it's history.

From what I have read the water feature in the GCH was causing mold and mildew problems that they were not able to control. Unfortunately they have decided to take it out, instead of constantly struggling to try and clean up after it.

I can see having deep feelings for Sunset Point and the waterfall being gone but I guess to me the volcano pool area still seems new to me. 2001 does not seem that long ago.

ETA - just googled some pictures. I can never unsee that clown now. Damn this thread!
I would love to stay at the poly after the rehab. One of the reasons for my hesitation has been that there is no hot tub, so I'm glad to hear that there will be now. Thanks for the info Tikiman.

As for the BWI, I love everything about that resort, but I can't get past that clown pool. I will never stay there as long as that clown is there. There was a picture somewhere of it lit up at night, it's the stuff nightmares are made of

It just shows you that once you put something online you never know where it will end up.
That's awesome! I was looking for a great Poly avatar when I signed up for the Disboards as the Poly is our favorite resort

Thanks for the great pic. I can't seem to change it to anything else
