We will be there 10-3 10-12, booked CL in the Hawaii building. Talked to IPO and they said that the Hawaii building is all done with new fridges. I asked about the pool and any other construction in Oct and she said no. I hope that is true. I would be very upset if the pool of GCH was under construction when we go.

I think Poly guests would be directed to the GF pool during a closure. Someone posted on another thread that Disney would also provide a shuttle to take guests over to the GF if they didn't want to walk .

I agree. I love the Poly lobby and the sounds of the waterfall. We don't usually sit in the lobby for any amount of time, but I love just walking through......it's so calm and peaceful to me with all of the sounds and smell

From what I've been reading, the pool refurb is supposedly put on hold indefinitely .

So much speculation, I wish they would just spill the beans already.

Was there this much drama/ rumors prior to the gf DVC build? Is this just how disney does it or is the rumor mill just out of control with this one ?

I remember hearing rumors about GF DVC being built for some time before it was official. A lot of people were convinced it was never going to happen. I think ideas get "leaked" and then people run with them (although this is just my opinion). In addition, I think sometimes Disney makes plans for something, but along the way they rethink it and then either decide not to do it at all, or keep the plans and just change some of the specifics.

We are staying Oct 6-13! Not CL, but TPV. We are on the Platinum plan so we used the IPO too, and they are awesome!

Really looking forward to this trip!!

Yes it was several months or more into the construction before it was officially announced as dvc. They were trying to sell Kidani as much as possible before the announcement.

I like how this thread is called the "OFFICIAL" Poly construction thread when Disney hasnt even OFFICIALLY announced anything happening....a bunch of Poly fanboys reporting from second hand CMs constitutes OFFICIAL here I guess...I realize that it will likely happen given the direction of deluxe resorts adding DVC...but so many people on the boards are getting bent out of shape over this and we no nothing substantial yet... I say book the resort you want and when Disney announces something OFFICIAL with dates attached to it then proceed to freak out...just my two cents.
