Have a great trip . We won't be at the Poly until December, but we have a busy summer ahead of us, so I'm sure time will fly .

We'll be arriving at the Poly on the 26th! Can't believe it's less than 2 weeks!!! We've been planning this trip forever it seems

Just went out shopping for some things today and realized how much more I need to get together still! The kids have outgrown so many clothes from last summer! Can. Not. Wait!

We are staying club level this year. Wondering if someone can tell me how many different areas there are to enter the building. Thanks.

It is an offer that you have to book while you are still at Disney and usually the rate is 30-40% off the rack rate. There are blackout dates where the discount will not be available.

There are 3 areas to enter/exit. The main one is in front of Hawaii, the other is right next to it and is the staircase. The other is a staircase located at the other end of the Hawaii longhouse. There is also a door over to the left of the main entrance but I think it is only an exit. I'm sure someone else on here knows for sure.

We're checking in to the Poly on the 28th. Hope to see some fellow Dis'ers while we're there.

WDWtoday.com now has an interview with tikiman on their site, about the DVC plans.

Off to listen!

Just listened! Every one on this board needs to go listen to ASAP! Sounds like DVC is starting at the end of the year. They're going to remove the luau building, build a t-shaped 5 story DVC building on that side of the beach, build the bungalows over the lagoon by the TTC, turn Tahiti into DVC, remove the laundry/ adventurer's club to add a new pool with a lazy river like Aluani, remove the parking lot in that area to expand, potentially build a parking garage, and potentially remove the water feature in the lobby. The potential date for all of this will be 2017. Which seems far away but WOW these are huge changes. I'm worried about our family staying at the Poly during the construction and will it even be the same resort after almost everything is changed? Frankly I don't understand the need for so many DVC's, I guess it's a money maker. But I'm amazed at how many people commit to that large of an expense. I guess if I was DVC I would be excited but I'm not. Although there have been things that Disney has changed that I have been skeptical about but I usually end up always loving it. All of these changes are going to need some major pixie dust.

Until it is being built, I would not give it another thought. Sure there are plans.

There were plans for Eagle Pines and even an official announcement about it and it never got built.

Nothing official from DVC at this point.
