As a Poly fan, I am disappointed with their decision to stay open during the refurb. I welcome the refurb and for the most part the changes. I realize that they are notifying guests, but I still feel bad for anyone there right now. I'm sorry, but that lobby along with a torn up pool coming soon....really, that is bad. It's just my opinion, but I think it would have been a better reflection on Disney as a company if they would have closed for a 6 month refurb (or whatever) and done it all at once rather then build a city of temporary walls. Just my thoughts, no need to flame, I realize some will disagree with me. Not Disney's finest move in my opinion. I know we all look for to the final result!

I agree but I guess it's all about the mighty dollar.

Or at the very least, include Free Dining with all rooms when promo is offered. Seems like a reasonable request with all the inconveniences of the rehab. It's not like any of the rooms at a deluxe are low as it is.

We didnt plan on going to the pool that much since it will be Dec when we go and it really wasnt that warm last year when we went at that time but its really messed up when we booked the vacation that they failed to mention the place is under construction.

Can you use another resorts pool during the construction? I know when BC pool was closed we went to BW and it was allowed.

No. They are giving guests a complimentary day at Blizzard Beach instead.

That's not right. So if I wanted to sit by the pool, I have to get on a bus and enter a theme park to do it?
I'm almost thinking about changing my hotel now. Really pissed off no one mentioned this at time of booking.

Posting this as I have on other threads...shows the extent of construction of the bungalows:
http://www.islands.com/articles/vide...src=SOC&dom=fb

Between this, and the other major construction going on I personally would not be too happy if I was unaware. Thank goodness for DISboards.

The Disney website does not go into great detail about the Poly construction. It just lists the areas under construction, which also lacks enough info.

You can still enjoy the quiet pool.

Hopefully it won't be too crowded now. The pools they had barely accommodated the size of the resort.

A big thing to consider having young kids ... What do they like to do when you go back to the resort? Go in the pool. That pool won't accommodate everyone and it's not good for toddlers (depth).
