I haven't seen details about that walkway yet but so far, the construction seems more concentrated on the other side of the resort. But it all depends on what happens. And of course, it depends on when you are going.

It shouldn't close since all the construction is on the other side of the resort.

Just one thing to keep in mind and that is my little guy is in a wheelchair so we did make ressies for an accessible room. Also, with all this construction talk going on, should I make a request now and hope for the best?..or...wait a bit and see if more info. comes in regarding the locations of the buildings that are being renovated. Construction or not ~ we are super excited and will make the best of whatever craziness we find!
You're going to love the Poly . We stayed in Samoa and loved the location. It was convenient to everything as it's just steps from the volcano pool, GCH, beach, and Captain Cooks .

I agree .

I think you made a good choice.....book the Poly and see what happens as things progress .

We are at 45 days!! Trip is paid off, ADRs set (though I wouldn't mind swapping our BOG lunch FP for a dinner ADR), photopass ordered, DD's teacher is informed of her 1 day out of school...everything is coming together!!! Still need to reserve a stroller rental and set up ME (not sure how to do that...) and then we'll be sitting pretty at the Poly before we know it!!! The kids are SO excited. Can't wait!!!

I have a cabana rental question. I am arriving early on Saturday, 11/30. We are not going to the parks that day, but are going to the Spirit of Aloha show at 5:15. Since our room may not be ready until 3, I was thinking if doing a Cabana rental.

But I'm worried they won't let me. The Disney website says you need a valid room key for the rental, and I have no way of knowing when I'll be able to check in. Has anyone done this?

Are you looking for an offsite company? If so we used apple in may and had no issues!

I would call them but I bet if you had a copy of your reservation showing you were checking in that day that they should accept that. I am doing the same thing only renting it at 3. Did not know about the room key thing so I guess I will have to call also. I would think I would have a key by then but you never know.

Oh really?

We have never stayed here but it sounds like the gym is between the GF and Poly and it also sounds like this is where construction is at.

We are going from dec 22 to jan 3rd..

Yes, thanks for the recommendation! That is one I was planning to check out. We're looking for a double City Mini.

Nope construction is on the other side near Hawaii and Tahiti.

At Poly now and I jogged over to GF/poly health club this morning. The club is between GF and Poly but the Poly construction is on the opposite side of the Poly not the GF side. I could still get all the way from poly to the GF even though construction walls are still up because of GF DVC construction. Still all good! Construction at poly currently is very minimal and not affecting our stay. We shall see what Monday morning brings but still only the low silt retaining walls.

I used to fax in my room requests 5 days before our arrival date but I haven't done that in several years. Do the resorts still look at/consider these faxes when assigning rooms considering you can add requests during online check-in? I'd like to fax in a request with my usual request - "3rd floor with balcony" but also add something about being away from the east side construction.
