Woohoo! Just booked our pre cruise stay in June/July back at our beloved poly! Doing GV CL for 4 nights! Can't wait to see how the resort has progressed since we walked through it last month. We feel so at home there and even with the changes I am sure that feeling won't change!

I wish we could!!! I'm getting nervous though... I assumed that by July the main pool would be completed but now all everyone is saying is that they hope it is done by August... I really hope that it is done by our trip in July - I guess it is still 6 months away and I will continue to monitor tikiman's updates... but I REALLY hope it is done by our trip!

Maybe if you can work your days to their discount you can save big $$ but we already had planned our time to go. I just hate for people to keep saying they are getting this great deal when there are "catches".
I just rechecked my January res, and while not an astounding $ save like August deals, I did save a little, and price was cheaper then Disney AP discount. No catches.
I ended up booking a split stay at same resort, first 5 days with AP discount, and second 5 days with magical deal. As you say, the special doesn't cover all dates, and doesn't start till mid trip for us. So it is nice to get a little more of a discount on half our stay.

I would really hope that the pool is done by then. It seems crazy that the hotel would actually have their main pool out of service for almost a year. .

What are the chances that all of the Poly construction is done by Sept? We just booked for Sept 8-18 of 2015 with the hopes that the pool and everything else would be completed by then.

From what is shown in the photos, I genuinely like some of the new decor/features. The rock formation (waterfall?) in the center seems fairly lame compared to the original though. Knew it would be- I guess I just really liked the old one.

We had dinner at O'hana tonight and got to see the new lobby. While I am one who misses the old waterfall, I will admit that the new lobby came out very nice....could use a little more greenery/flowers, IMHO, but still very nice. Really like the openness and the new furniture looks sleek. I, for one, cannot wait for our upcoming August stay and just hope most of the construction will be done by then.

I have seen video and pictures of the new lobby and I'm probably in the minority but I do like it. I feel like it is nice and open - spacious and welcoming! I love the new lighting! Can't wait to see what the rest looks like when it is done!
