Construction Concerns

Sure wish we could delay the trip. But we borrowed points, have purchased airline tickets, and non- refundable resort stays on the Big Island. We chose these dates because the CM I spoke with said that they should be about finished by the time we go and that there shouldn't be much construction going on by then, just finishing touches. This is kind of a once in a lifetime trip for my 50th birthday. I sure hope that it isn't as bad as I am imagining it.
When my husband and I were able to book our trip in May (which I think we booked in October) that was the first thing I questioned as well. Especially since we went last year in March and absolutely loved it. We also got a tip from a Cast Member that May was a great time to go because the kids are out of school, so hopefully less crowded.

Anyways I still made what I felt were the necessary calls to DVC and to Aulani both of which had different stories of when the "noisey" construction would be done.So my husband and I decided to wait and keep our ears open.

We then too a Disney cruise in December, where again we spoke with DVC members who guaranteed us that there would be only quiet work done during the time that we will be there. So I guess we just trust think positive and think for the best.

If the noise is no worse than what we had in February, you will be just fine. The construction area that's left is quite small, and there wasn't that much noise that we could hear. As I said earlier, I really only heard it from the outdoor area of the Lawani spa. It certainly didn't affect our enjoyment of the resort in any way other than to possibly funnel more children into the beautiful hot tubs instead of into their own kiddie area. It is my understanding that the expansion is mostly a kiddie pool.

I check last week on DVC and found a week open in May so I booked it. I am a little concerned about the construction but after reading serveral post from others it appears to be not that bad.

Here now and the pool area is smaller than in July but still very manageable. There is only one access point to the lagoon so there is a lot of foot traffic in that area of the pool. Have noticed walls coming down and going up but no real noise to complain about. Also you get some goodies for booking and staying during the construction. Looks to be on track to open with phase three.
