I'm sure if pool is closed they would allow you to use gf or cr.

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.
As it should be! The people who fight to keep us safe deserve some magic! Thank you to your husband and you for all your sacrifices!

If the rumors are true, construction will begin at the end of the year. I'm not sure if the plan would be to shut down Tahiti right away.....tikiman is updating his website as he finds out the information...which of course, keeps changing.

We are coming Oct 6-13, booked TPV. I was just seeing what rooms are available during our trip (we are already booked) and it showed only TPV available for the length of our stay, so I'm guessing Tahiti is expected to be open, but who knows.

I went ahead and booked BLT today, I was afraid that 2 BR Lakeview Villa would disappear. Still hoping we'll be switching to the Poly at some point!

We did the same thing! We are going in late January and I don't know how far into their plans on the poly they will be

Just read a post from Tikiman on a different forum that he was told that work on Sunset Point will start in September and that the marina rental is being moved to the premium cabana area.

Sounds like things might be starting up soon. Hearing this seals my decision to book WL for January instead of Poly!

Interesting that they may be starting soon. I guess it's the work on the GCH and the volcano pool that would be the biggest deal breaker for me. I still cannot believe they are taking out the waterfall!!!! (according to tikiman's update). I hope they keep the 'smell' of water in there, it wouldn't be the same without it! I understand they are making a new water feature, but I don't want the GCH to change! Regardless, no matter how hard they try, taking out the waterfall will be a huge project and mess, right in the middle of it all! Happy Saturday!

I called Disney to ask about this and I was informed by a very rude cast member that they have already announced construction for next year at all resorts and the poly is not one of them
