lol true. I guess we will all have to be ready to roll with the punches. Hey what does everyone say" A bad day at Disney is better then a day at work" or something like that. I am sure that if someone checks in and there is something just too much to handle they will try to move you to another resort, thats a pain yes, but what else could you do?

Exactly right. I understand that guests have the desire to stay at specific places because they have the money, but I often don't agree with the entitled feeling those people get. As a former CM, the one thing I always found to be the biggest take away from working there is that a lot of guests only go to Disney once because of the cost. APs and those who can afford to go very often should be thankful of just that.

Now, back on topic. I look forward to the updates coming to Poly. I can't wait to see the new GCH and the bungalows. It almost makes me want to be a DVC member. It now gives me something to look forward to when we visit Florida!

I hope that any of our Disers who are traveling to the world in the comming months will be so kind as to update what, if anything you see during your stay, in terms of construction. Thanks!

I'll be there Sept 5th - 9th! We will probably watch Wishes from the Poly beach the night of the 8th since we will see them at MK the night of the 5th.

I am going October 19-26, staying garden view. After reading about the upcoming construction on Tikiman's Facebook page, I am wondering if I should call and have my room request for Tokelau taken off my reservation. Opinions? I have not stayed at any Disney resorts during construction, so I am not sure how well construction is handled. Should I request a building away from it?

With the news that construction is starting in September, is there any hope it will be done in a year?? I would LOVE to book there for Sept 2014 but won't if there is construction. But choosing another resort is proving difficult

That is my favorite building. We just stayed there last week. I wouldn't change it. I would hope that the walkway isn't blocked to the TTC.

We were there 5 years ago when they were doing upgrades. The first night we were in a building that they were doing work in. Mid day naps were not fun! We requested to be moved and I never heard the construction noise again. I mean they were in the same building as us.

I phone the resort yesterday after hearing about the construction. We will be there from the 8th to the 17th and since this is a big splurge (we've never done a deluxe before, and likely won't again since we now have three kids etc.) we were very concerned. The lady said that the construction is starting but at least next month they're just going to be refurbing some rooms and none of the main areas are going to be affected. They're not going to have guests in the buildings that are being refurbed for now. The pool, lobby, gift shop, beach etc should be open.

Now if we get there and that ISN'T the case... it will be an issue. But that's what she told me yesterday!

Thanks for the input. Tokelau is our favorite building as well. I love the location, so easy to walk to the GCH or the TTC. I would be sad not to stay there but at the same time, I don't want to deal with noise too early in the morning. We like sleeping in, especially if we have a MNSSHP the night before.

I will be watching the boards for any updates!
