Thank you!
I hope at least one person per day, or ever other day will do this.

We are 33 days out and while I would assume they wouldn't be drilling right outside the rooms that are occupied or using heavy machinery all hours of the day and night, I still would like to know to what extent the construction is.

As long as I the girls can safely play in front of, and 15-20 yards or so either side of the hammock outside room 1503, and the noise isn't loud enough and constant enough to disturb my 5 minute cat naps in said hammock, all will be right with the world!

Kona is the most underrated restaurant in WDW. Great place for food and not too expensive. Its out favorite little secret, so do not tell anyone.

The cat naps I wouldn't count on unless they are behind schedule on their plans. That is a little over a month away and I would suspect they would be into it a bit by then.

Seems unusual that they would have the pool out of action during peak summer months?? maybe the upgrade in march will not take too long??

well that's my wish anyway

One can only hope. They do run a shuttle boat between the Poly and GF so you can use their pool during work on the Poly's and you don't have to traipse through the GF lobby in your swimsuit.

So, we've always liked the Poly. We were a bit underwhelmed when it was crowded for our reservation at Ohana (there was something going on though) ... but DH and I keep thinking about it and loving the pictures ^_^
We've never stayed because it is a bit out of our price range.

BUT with the DVC coming, we are SO EXCITED! Because this means that we can rent points and finally stay (been a dream for a bit) AND when we finally can, we can purchase DVC for the Poly.
I understand how those of you that frequent are a bit apprehensive with the new construction, but for those of us that have only wished are ecstatic

I believe that's the coffee place near the monorail entrance - right? Its not the actual Kona restaurant that is closed.

I also agree with this, wholeheartedly. I have never had a bad meal there. It's even better as room service.

Thank goodness! We go in 3 weeks, and even though there is coffee in the rooms and the club lounge, my DH had me walk there every AM last year to get him "good coffee"! I secretly liked the walk, though. He would have been disappointed if this were gone.

Oh good!! Sounds like it should be open by the time we arrive. Grabbing a cup of coffee from there is part of my daily plan! They also have sushi in the evening, correct?
