Thanks! Emailing now

Sorry, haven't stayed in Tokelau, but to answer the question about the patio doors, you should be able to enter/exit with your stroller through the door with no problem. You'd have to push it across part of the lawn, and possibly around some shrubs/planting beds, depending on your room location, but you should have access to get out that way. Just FYI, though, you can't lock the patio doors from outside.

You've got the sliding door answer and I have stayed in Tokelau in a corner room and loved it! We have stayed ground floor on the garden (non-pool) side on both corners but lagoon side was definitely the best! It was by chance. I've never requested a specific room since that's pretty difficult but I request Tokelau ground floor.

We requested Samoa for the end of march. Any idea if Samoa is supposed to be refurbished at this time? Also can someone tell me if anything else is scheduled for closure for the very end of march.

Thank you so much! I checked them out and I think if we can't get in Tahiti we'll request Tokelau, but I'm worried since there are only 2 lagoon view rooms in there we'll be out of luck. We just really don't want to go on the other side of the Poly-we were looking to be near the TTC.

Another question - if we get there and we would happen to be on the other side of the resort, is it possible to switch to a garden view room at that time?

Samoa's Reno started early February. I read somewhere that they are estimating 2 months(can someone confirm or correct me).

You are correct. I think they've had Hawaii blocked out from the beginning of January until early-mid March. There's probably a bit of a cushion in there, so 2 months seems to be what they're aiming for. Hawaii is also having the lounge redone, so it may take longer than the others to do.

This is amazing - I came on this thread specifically to find out about the reno schedule for Hawaii (planning an August trip) and it's right here! I love the Dis!!

Are there pictures anywhere of the renovated rooms - or is no one able to stay there at all yet? I would love to see the re-done lounge as well. I did see some pictures on Tikiman's website, but I wasn't sure if they were definite or not.

So excited to be going back to the Poly!!

No pictures yet, though we're all anxiously waiting!
Tikiman was looking on his FB page for someone staying in Hawaii in the near future so he could get pics. I think there is someone who's in mid-March, so hopefully he'll have some in a few weeks!

Well, I know I'll be haunting this thread now! And Tikiman's site...

We've only ever stayed CL for 3-4 days - I'm trying to figure out if we can swing a whole week this year. Hoping for a discount code, but not sure if that'll come to pass...

Hi all - I was taking a look that the allears.net menu for captain cooks. I happened to notice the kids menu and I am confused about the kids choices. First let me say that although my kids eat healthy, they are not the most adventurous eaters. We last went in 2011 and we ate there a ton - but now I am not seeing so much that my kids would eat on the kids menu. Were there changes? All I see now is Chicken and Pineapple Skewer, Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir Fry, Seasonal Fish. Are there no basic choices. Basic sandwich, etc.?

We were there in December and my kids had chicken nuggets, fries, hamburgers, jello, etc.

Thanks for the help. Were those included in the kids dining plan?
