Also put in your request for longhouse and floor when you do online check in. I have my longhouse and floor requested for December through a CM already but she also suggested requesting it again when we do online check in.

I agree. We haven't heard a word from Disney either. I know some people did receive letters, but nothing here yet. Thankfully we have a heads up from the DIS and Tikiman.

Do you have your honeymoon noted on your reservation Abbey? Maybe (esp. given the construction situation) you'll get a little pixie dust!

When I walked past there a few nights ago it appeared that there were still guests on the third floor. I don't know for how long though.

Those fences did me in. We were scheduled for Hawaii next August, but I just switched over to Yacht Club.

I can understand that, I will be back for sure when all done but watching the demise of my fave in real time would bother me, lol. I think I just need a clean start.

Have you decided what you're doing yet? Appreciate your alerts as to when to check Tikiman's facebook.

Just got back from a week's stay at the Poly yesterday. Have to say that the construction wasn't much of an issue for us. We had a standard view room and originally asked for Tahiti (our favorite) but with the construction I assumed they were not filling Tahiti or Rapa Nui so we decided to leave longhouse selection up to the Polynesian gods. We were put in Nuie, second floor, and were not disappointed. I'd definitely request this longhouse in the future. Really from our room we had no idea there was any construction going on and with the monsoon rains earlier this week we were happy to be so near the GCH. It was very quiet and away from the volcano pool. Did notice a LOT of daytime construction noise from the parking lot while walking to TTC. Also, was surprised to see there are still people in Tahiti and Rapa Nui. The combination of parking lot noise and the fences all around would not have made that an acceptable option for us. Not sure how things will change over the coming months but if you're going in the next few weeks you should be fine as long as you stay away from Tahiti and Rapa Nui. (Sorry, not sure about Hawaii - have never stayed club level.) All in all I was glad I was forewarned about the construction and pleasantly surprised with how little it impacted our trip!

view of construction from Hawaii 2nd floor

Just got back from 2 night stay in the Hawaii Longhouse. Some fencing was going up during our stay. It was noisy during the day but the view of the castle and fireworks were still fantastic so not a huge impact.

Day 1 - 9/26:



Day 2 - 9/27:





By 9/27 the fences were higher and the path out to the grassy point was blocked by the fence.

For those who are just back- how noisy is it during the day? I have three young kids who need to nap. Currently we are booked in CL but I can switch us to just a standard room and request a longhouse far away from construction if it is really loud.

It may depend what kind of construction is going on while you are there. For us they were putting up the fence so they were pile driving the poles, but I was surprised how well the sliding glass door muffled the noise.

Maybe give it a try for a day first than switch to another room if it is too noisy?
