I just called disney and the Poly. They don't have a pool closure listed for September. They told me that there are pool hours listed.

I am hoping that there is no closure. I will check back with them in a few weeks. They told me that we would be notified if there was a pool closure.

I just got off the phone with Disney as well! Who knows what we can believe! She assured me the Volcano pool would be open but the other two pools would be closed?! Sorry if I reported false information.

Thanks. They didn't say anything about the other pools, but I asked about the volcano pool. I looked on the fb page you listed and saw it there too. Lets just hope they will be open!

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!
I like to use Photobucket. And they have an app that is really easy to use! Once you take the pic just upload it to photobucket and you can paste the link right here.

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.
I hope you complained to the manager while you were there! I would have been transferred out of that building immediately and out of the resort! What a nightmare!! If they couldn't move you I at least hope they gave you a discount off your room rate. That is totally unacceptable! Crowded I can deal with, but people running at 2:00 AM and laying in the hallways, I would have gone off the deep end!

We killed it but definitely put a sour taste in my mouth. We are staying CL TPV and for these costs I don't want to have to battle roaches!
Probably a Palmetto bug. We've seen them around all the resorts from time to time. We had a dead one in our bed at the BC a couple of years ago. They are quite common and not roaches. People love to lay in their rooms with the sliding door open and they just fly in. Probably whoever was in the room before you liked to leave the door open to hear the boats and sounds of the resort.

We are chalking it up to a learning experience. We have already written a letter to guest relations in hopes the Poly can maintain its serenity for future guests. We love it there so much.
What did the manager say? Did he offer any solutions? Was he at least apologetic? Was his name Eric Woodard? He is the guest services manager I have been dealing with and he seems great. I'm surprised he didn't offer any support or help. That is really disappointing.

Yes I told first thing though the CM didn't seem that shocked or surprised by it. He noted it on our account and said mouse keeping would look into it. I was just surprised with the newly refurbed Hawaii building to have roaches (gag).

I did. What is the difference between a cockroach and a palmetto bug??

No, the balcony door was closed because I'm super paranoid about mosquitoes. And this was behind the bathroom door on the floor. Definitely didn't fly in in the few seconds it took to open and close the door.
