think one is the gym - since the Poly does not have one now - but agree it is in a strange place. most of the gyms that DVC does is close to the pool - and the other side is closer to the non-dvc pool.

so don;t know.

just hope that they don't try to make this new pool only for Polyn guests only. that is causing enough problems at BLT - where it is a size problem.

looks like the Polyn pool will be big enough for the entire resort.

I have never understood what people mean when they say the Polynesian needs to be redone, truly rehabbed. The rooms have been recently rehabbed, to the best of my knowledge. And the exterior?? Leave it alone. The Polynesian was designed to be representative of buildings in Polynesia. I'm not sure what people want it to look like!!! Every resort has a specific theme. You don't see people saying the CR needs to be rehabbed since it looks dated!!! Geez.

I own DVC...at BWV and at BLT. I will never stay at the VGF...I don't care for the GF to begin with and feel no need to ever stay at a villa there. And while I like the Polynesian well enough, I don't see the need for DVC there. But, no one asked me for my opinion!!! Just seems to be too much building going on along the monorail route. Getting a wee bit crowded for my tastes.

I agree, I think that if they MUST add more DVC one building by the luau cove is enough. I am not anti DVC at all, I am thinking of buying in, I just think that it is getting way to congested in this area. Would love to have a completley new resort in a new expansive location and leave the poly as is.

There is no "nasty smell" at the Poly. Except for the pool hoppers, of course. They stink pretty bad!

I think that most people who look at what are the current plans ,it is a bit much for the size of the property. DVC will not change the current buildings too much, just crowd the property.

Would love to see these too. We LOVE the Poly and it is our favorite resort so far. But unless we get one heck of a deal (like the $199/nt we got last fall) we will not stay there as I just won't spend the insane amount they charge. However, we have considered adding on and probably would at the Poly

Some of the unofficial poly sites have them up. Looks like 2 new 5 floor buildings, Tahiti all DVC, 20 grand villas out over the water in front of Tahiti , and a new pool.

Put the $$ towards a complete re-haul of the monorail system.

I don't think anyone outside of Disney Imagineering, Disney management, and their contractors (if they have really gotten that far) have seen any real plans. I am not even aware of any concept art that has been leaked.

Tikiman has a photoshopped resort map based on information that he got from his Poly "sources" that may or may not be accurate. Obviously he doesn't identify his sources and while they may provide him with whatever information they have been told that doesn't mean that they are in a position to have seen any official plans or know what they official schedules are. Their information may be second or third hand and we all know that Disney's plans and schedules are notoriously subject to change.

I totally agree! So glad I'm staying at the Poly once more before construction starts. We will probably go back to Beach Club for our next trip.

That is a very good point. Perhaps it will not be as extensive as reported, i guess we will have to wait and see. Historicaly is disney very tighed lipped about dvc plans? I remember being at wdw when BLT was going up and cast members claiming they did not know what it was.

I wish I could get in one more trip before this mess starts but I don't think so planning a back up for possible next Aug, DH and Ds are not happy about it.

I voted for 1 building only, the one at the end toward wedding Pavillion. Adding a hot tub and another pool would be nice, as volcano pool is too small.
I think the current plans are awful, cramming more buildings, and adding the villas on the water will ruin what was once a beautiful, relaxing resort, with pretty landscaping.
