OH my goodness gracious. Once again, the DISboards come to the rescue!!! Tikiman, thank you so much for your diligent work keeping up with all this chaos!

We are moderate level vacationers, but I am getting ready to book at quick 3-night stay in October for F&W/MNSSHP/quick getaway and thought, what the heck, DD and I have always DREAMED of staying at the POLY!!!!! I was actually getting ready to book it online and I was having some snags with not being able to book for just the 3 nights (the site would let me book 4 or 5). I was going to call, but thought I would check here to see what's what first.

Sounds like the Poly is NOT the place to be this early fall, so back to the drawing board. This is going to be a major splurge for us and I do not want the hassle of what it sounds like will be going on!

THANK YOU!!!!!!

Just called but I got bumped over to the GF Club level as Poly was really busy. She called Poly to find out was refurbishments would be happening. There will be some sidewalk construction taking place but they weren't sure where that would be in two weeks time, buildings 10 and 11 are closed, Captain Cooks would still be open and was told CL should not be affected.

Saw on Tikiman's Facebook the official construction response from Disney! It said the menu will be the same but no dole whips- am I understanding this correctly? There might be pork nachos in my future after all!!

I'm really sad about the dole whips -- this was a fun snack to get while watching Wishes.....

Just booked a Poly Cabana for one day the last week of August and was assured that the pool would in-fact be open... I questioned them to death and talked to a few different people.

I know it means nothing, but just thought I'd share...

So many different stories it's making my head spin....I quess I will learn more as time gets closer...
We will be CL mid-august....if main pool is closed, what are people planning...use the GF pool?

We stayed there in the mid 80's when there was major construction going on...don't know if this will be larger or not...
But we were not bothered..

We would be slightly bothered if the pool is closed, and greatly bothered if monorail service is affected....

Hopefully you will be keeping your Poly cabana because I am praying daily to the Tiki Gods that this project is pushed to September!!!

Please don't push anything back into Sept!!! That's my TIME!!!
Talking Sept.... after reading Tikiman's facebook letter.

IF i am reading everything correctly.

The Nanea pool will be closed BUT the quiet pool will not be disturbed? Do you believe it can possibly turn into a not so quiet pool?

Capt Cooks will be reopened! <-- TONGA TOAST!!!! Nachos... my mouth is watering.

the GCH??? I am still confused on this end..

my question now... We are not staying CL, which longhouse would be best? I am traveling with children under 10. transportation is key, close and easy as all you parents know what tired children will be like for a long walk back "Home"..
Is Tokelau still the best location. We are from Chicago. so outside noise will not disturb us too much. yet i don't see paying the prices to look at construction while on vacation..I can see that from my Chicago home windows! trying to get away from it! LOL

Any advice at this time would be greatly appreciated.. I know it's a long way out.. Yet it's not!

I'm curious why they're still advertising the Neverland Club while it's closed. I will be staying at the Poly in a week and just got my "Info about your Trip" email. The email is basically an advertisement for a bunch of add-ons (gift baskets, etc.), and at the bottom had this section:

ENCHANTING EXPERIENCES
Out of all the things to see and do, here are two special experiences we picked just for you:

The Never Land Club
At this delightful Children’s Activity Center, kids ages 3 to 12 can enjoy video games, have dinner and snacks, watch Disney movies and interact with other kids while the grown-ups head out to enjoy dinner or a specialty cruise. Open daily from 4:30 p.m. to midnight. Call 407-938-4755 to book! Reservations strongly recommended. Additional fees apply.


The second experience was for a tea party. Seems strange they'd tell me to call and book a place that's closed.
