We are here now and the only thing I have saw is a small area on the beach cordoned off, I think someone said it was a new fire pit.

I saw a photo of the firepit construction on Tikiman's Facebook page a few days ago, if you want to look for that.

We just checked in today to Poly CL for 4 nights. We transferred from the Beach Club after 6 nights. Definitely a different feel and vibe from BC. The lounge is nice, bustling with people. It has a wonderful view of the castle. Check in was amazing! It was raining out and we arrived around 3:30 from Animal Kingdom. Told the CM out front that we were checking in CL and she called for another CM right away who loaded us and our luggage that was transferred from the BC all onto a stretched golf cart and delivered us right to Hawaii. While we checked in he brought our stuff to the room. Everything was very nice!

Now, I just have to say that I doubt a room has a better view than ours! (if someone can explain how to post pics from an iPad I'll post the proof! Lol) We are in room 3513 with the most amazing theme park view! Now if we can get this rain to go away so that we can enjoy the cabana tomorrow!

Tour groups?

Not to bring up a sour topic, but I thought that fellow Poly lovers might want a heads up. We just returned from a 6 night 7 day stay at the Poly, our 7th consecutive trip at this amazing resort. Unfortunately this particular trip was a bit crowded. Please note I am not getting into a debate or putting down another culture, it is simply the shear size of these groups that is the problem. That being said we were in Tokelau 2nd floor which was for the large part also occupied by a Brazillian tour group.

For the price we pay for this resort we were disappointed that we were woke up on several occasions well after 2am by kids running through the hallways, banging doors as well as being woke up at 5am. We couldn't use the laundry services because they would be using the facilities in large groups for several hours, during the late evening 11:00pm on there would be anywhere from 10 to 30 kids laying in the hallways with their blankets, pillows and shoes thrown all over the hallways (and would not budge to let us through). I could drown on and on about Capt'n Cooks, the monorail and bus waits caused by such a large group. I was naive enough to believe staying at a deluxe would spare us the inconvenience of these extremely large groups. Unfortunately it soured our experience for a resort we have come to love and cherish.

Why on earth were they in the hallways. Did you call security, sounds like a fire hazard to me.
