Does anyone know what exactly pool resurfacing consists of? Would that merit fencing around the pool and lots of noise? Obviously it would be enough to close the pool, but just wondering how annoying it would be to walk past, for example. Will the quiet pool definitely be open while the main pool is worked on?

Trying to make a final decision between the Poly and other MK resorts for our stay this January (MLK weekend).

Really want to be at the Poly this time (it's been over ten years!) and not so concerned about the inability to swim, but just don't want the pool area to look like an eyesore with fencing, cranes, etc. since it's smack in the middle of the resort.

With Hawaii, do you think it would make a difference to request the west end as far as the sunset point construction? Or is it not that big enough of a building to matter?

Also, how awful is the ferry boat horn?

Can't answer the Hawaii question (although I assume the west end would be preferable), but the ferry boat horn is the best!

The building is pretty big. I think it would depend on what floor you're on whether the construction is going to be an eyesore. If you're on the third floor I think you'll notice it regardless of what end you are in. Although obviously you will have a much closer view at the East end. If you are on the first floor it probably won't be as noticeable.

And I second mariamouse's opinion ... LOVE the ferry horn. You don't really notice it that much with the sliders closed, but we keep the door open so we can hear it!

When we stayed in the Tahiti building, the ferry boat horn really bothered us. It was quite loud, and went long after we were in bed with our 2 kids. There was a marked improvement when we stayed in the Hawaii building. I really don't think it will bother you! We will be back in the Hawaii building in June. Can't wait!

But, here is a pic of the fence outside of Hawaii.

Anyone heard if the beach will stay open, and if the view of the fireworks will not be impeded?

Resort monorail closures

Just found out that the resort monorail will be closed from Oct. 6 to Oct. 19 between the hours of 11am to 6pm. This will cover the whole time we are there. Between this and the construction, both of which I found out about after I booked, I'm not a very happy camper right now.

I would be very mad too! I understand the need for closures from time to time but to tell guest the day before it goes into effect is just wrong!

If monorail is closed between 11-6pm how will I get my mom the MK in her ECV for a 4pm dinner? The ferry that goes to the resorts is too small and won't allow ecvs.

I will be calling the Poly tomorrow and speaking with a manager friend there. I want to see if this is indeed true and why we weren't notified. We will be there from the 13th-20th and the monorail is a huge reason for us as we don't like taking the ECV on buses. MK is the only place we can avoid the buses so this puts a major crimp in our plans. I hope this isnt true.
