There will be a new snack stand opening at the Poly that will be serving Dole Whips. I don't recall the projected opening date, but at some point we will be able to enjoy Dole Whips at the Poly again.

Sadly I'm betting it won't be open by the 4th.

Where is construction projected to be in the fall of 2015? I would love to try and snag a room at the Poly, but only if the disruptions will be minimal.

So do I understand correctly that the main pool refurb should be finished by Spring 2015? We are starting to plan for May 2015 and we'd love to head back to the Poly, but the main pool
Being down would probably be a deal breaker. Hmmmmm...decisions decisions.

We just returned very early this morning from WDW. The Poly is a mess right now. We actually stayed at WL but went over to the Poly for dinner one night (and have stayed there previously so we can tell what's different). The lobby is essentially completed blocked off into one narrow hallway that runs along one side of the former waterfall. You hardly even know Boutiki is over on the other side unless you purposely turn left around the corner. There is one small seating area looking out towards the pool area. The second floor is equally blocked off. The outside of the resort looks like a major construction zone as well. I feel badly for families who are staying there now, until the construction is over there was nothing that felt deluxe about the Poly (at least to me). On the flip side, I can't wait to stay there again once everything is put back together!

And on Tikiman's FB pages he states that the doors at the back of the Great Ceremonial House are being blocked off and guests will have to use the front & side entrances to get in & out. And markings for the construction fence around the volcano pool should be painted soon.

I'm excited for the changes -- I just don't want to stay there during the transformation. We'll be staying at the GF this October but have dinner plans at the Poly so we'll check out the progress then. And I can't wait to stay there again once it's done.

I have not been on here for quite a while, tikiman remains the best resource on all of this. I guess the next big thing is the main pool going down.?

Tikiman's F/B page has an update from this morning, it's saying "almost September or in September" for the new Captain Cooks permanent location.
