I too will be monitoring this thread...

My youngest DD turns sweet 16 next summer and the only thing she wants is a stay at the Poly but with the construction news, I too, will not pay top dollar to be in the middle of construction. I'm so sorry now that I didn't book the Poly for our upcoming trip in a few weeks, if only I had known

So hard to know what to do without official conformation from disney...tikiman is awesome for posting all he knows. I guess I will just have to wait and see.

I too was debating between Poly, CR or GF for our September 2014 trip and with all this construction talk we decided to book a CR room and are trying to secure a villa seven months out from our trip.

BUT as soon as the poly is done...we will be back there!!

We just checked in at the Poly and we are in Samoa on the 3rd floor. Apparently our room was very newly renovated. When we were walking to our room, there appeared to be other rooms on the floor either being finished with renovations, or just some touch ups.

Someone else posted on another thread that any work on the Volcano Pool has been postponed indefinitely. Can't confirm, just what I read here on the Disboards.

I have gone ahead and booked CR for next August. If I get closer to August and it's looking good, I will switch (as long as its still available under my 40% discount).... If its meant to be, it will be....

I agree with many of you, I simply am not paying Poly prices to deal with construction on the pool or GCH. I understand that for those of you that don't use the pools or the GCH as much, then it would still be a consideration. I am disappointed, but I will wait for it to be done before I book myself or others there.

CR and GF here I come! We also did a recent BC/YC again (3rd stay there) and loved it as always! But deep down, Poly is always our favorite. I will stay up on this thread and appreciate everyone's input!

You already have a 40% discount for next August? How did you get it and what kind of discount is it?

I know the room renovation is supposed to be finished by the time we check in (Oct 6) but is it true Tahiti did not start on time? Has it started yet?

What are the chances we will get stuck in an old Tahiti room? We are staying TPV...What if it is closed when we are there? There are not many TPV rooms, and I thought the best were in Tahiti. (Also we want to be close to the TTC.)

I do not want an old room, but I was still hoping for Tahiti...what do you all think?

Rumor is that Tahiti is the longhouse being turned into DVC, which is why they did not start the reno.

Yes, it was just renewed for next year thru end of Sept 2014.
There are a few blackout dates, but not too many.
We have been lucky enough to use it several years in a row.

It kind of makes up for the deployment separations when DH is away....we always have awesome Disney trips to look forward to after!

Disney is so great to military members.

Tikiman origianlly posted these on his FB page and I stitched them together - unfortunately it appears they are considering putting in 20 bungalows over the water so the view in Tahiti and Hawaii will be affected
