I just checked and there will be king beds in Fiji, however they will be facing the luau cove and not the marina side. I hope I am not facing construction of DVC resorts. But if not the view seems nice on the other side of Fiji too but I would prefer Tokelau if I am on that side. At the worst, I can always asked to be moved once at the resort.

Well that stinks!!! I was hoping they would have king beds on the marina side. Yes, I believe there is still construction going on for the GF DVC. I would still rather be on the marina side, you feel like you're right in the middle of the resort right there.

Thanks for posting a pic. It really helps in the choosing process.
It is a great view, but do keep in mind that to see the lagoon most of the views from Tokelau (inclduing that one???) is from/to the side of the balcony.

That is not the view from the room through the doors nor is the view when looking straight ahead on the balcony, from most (if not all) rooms.

I believe the first floor have patios, while the 2nd and 3rd floors have balconies.

I know, Marina side seems so beautiful and I love the fact it is right next to GCH. But, now that I know there is construction still going on, I will asked at the reception to have another room if I see they put me on the luau side!
My second request was Tokelau but I could always ask for Samoa instead. They seem to have king rooms facing the quiet pool.

Yes I noticed that when I was looking at pics and map of this longhouse.
I wish I could afford to upgrade to lagoon view but it just seems like too much money for what it is worth (especially since I will spend most of the day and evening in the parks instead of the room). As long as I am facing lush vegetation and not a parking lot or a building, I am ok with that.
