Their mass exodus to the parking lot/GCH is usually the key.

Guess the construction outlook for our planned January 2014 stay is not looking good. Such a bummer since we so want to stay there this time around, although we will not be able to justify paying the Poly room rate if it might be a construction scene.

Selfishly crossing the fingers that Disney takes their sweet time starting this project...

Aloha!

Self-centered post announcing my recent addition of 3 nights LV/CL to our tri-split stay. After Poly, we ride the Sea Raycer over to CR for 6 nights, then gas it up and head over to WL for 6 nights.

I requested 3rd floor, without a connecting door and then noticed that there is only one LV room in Hawaii on the 3rd floor. It looks to be without a connecting door since it's at the very end furthest from the lounge. It would be just perfect, but odds are against us for getting that one room. Our last two Poly stays we received exactly what we requested, but we weren't CL.

Looking forward to reading more CL reports from those there now or going soon

Hi KOOK . Congrats on booking Poly CL. I can't wait to hear what you think of it. We are definitely staying there for 2 nights after our cruise in December and after reading all of the great reviews of CL lately, I am very excited about it . I just hope the DVC construction doesn't start before then as I really want to get 1 more Poly stay in before all of the construction mess begins .

Hi, I was wondering if anyone who has been this month happens to have a copy of the recreation/movie list. We just decided to add 2 nights at the end of our trip. Staying club level for the first time (TPV), and so excited!! I'm just trying to figure out which night would be better to plan to watch the movie on the beach, and also wanted to check the pool games schedule since there are a couple games that my girls really enjoy. Thanks so much!!

I am regretting not staying here this past April trip since i thought by next year all room renovations would be done. Now it looks like next April will be crazy with construction. Oh how i'll miss our original Poly trips

Here now and I was surprised with the Lagoon View at the Polynesian, we have a beautiful view of the water, although we can't see MK because of palm trees.

Super excited

We will be there May 30-June6 at CL. My first time at CL and my in-laws first time to WDW EVER and they are 76 and 79 yrs old.
I was very lucky to get a pin code to allow us to upgrade.
I am going to try to take lots of pictures so you can see what construction is happening and other things as well but I can't promise 100%.

What exactly is happening in 2014 with the poly? Thinking of return trip in February 2014. We loved it there this year but from what I am reading there will be construction next winter?
