How accommodating are they with letting you pick a longhouse?

It depends on how you define accommodating. They'll let you request, and they'll note it on your reservation, but they'll never guarantee. They say that they'll do their best to try.

It is now 11:52. Mrs. B. is sleeping soundly (I think). "Wake up" time is in about 3.5 hours. I have no desire to sleep whatsoever. I'm wired. I'm hoping to catch a nap later, and then maybe fall asleep on the plane some. The sandman is not my friend at the moment, hehe.

Ah, I'm familiar with that feeling! I hope you get some sleep, or at least a nice nap on the flight! I'm so excited for you guys!!!

So, I'm not sure if this has been mentioned on this thread yet, but all of the permits and Notice to Commence construction were filed last week for the Polynesian room refurb. The room refurb is the only thing that is mentioned on the permit, so all other repairs (Pool, GCH, etc) may or may not be on hold.

I am excited to see how the new rooms come out!!! I know alot of you Poly lovers love the rooms as they are, but I've never been too keen on them, although I still want to stay here. Based on the existing construction schedule, I should certainly have my newly refurbished room in April!!!

I never sleep the night before a trip, you'll have time for sleeping later! Safe travels!!!

My guess is all of those things would be different permits. It doesn't sound like they are anywhere near starting the GCH work, so having that all planned out would have delayed the permits for the rooms, plus it's completely different work (massive overhaul vs. room remodels).

It will be interesting to see the new rooms. Nice that you will be able to enjoy a fresh room with your spring trip!

My only hope now is that the pool will be in good operating order while we are there!

I'm the same way before a trip to WDW. I can never sleep. I hope you have a great trip!!!!!

Looks like the refurb at least kills the rumor that some of the long houses might be torn down for DVC expansion.
