So is this a permanent fire pit for the Poly?

I've been searching around and can't seem to find this, but I admit that I've been scanning all the pages of this and the prior thread, so I may have missed it. Is this what all the rooms are going to look like once the renovation is complete?

What is the expected time frame for it to all be completed?

Thanks so much! I know when you're on a thread for a while and someone pops on and asks a question that everyone already knows the answer to it can be annoying, but we are just in our beginning planning stages and haven't stayed at the Poly since 1997 so thanks for being patient

Here now on the beach. Not too thrilled that I paid to be here today to see the fireworks and there are tons of people here who are obviously not staying at the poly and did not pay for the privilege of staying here using the amenities

I will be at the Poly in 3 weeks for the first time. I need an ECV to get around (can walk a few steps with cane) so I am going to ask for first floor stardard room in a longhouse that has automatic door entry so I can get around by myself. I know that only some of the longhouses have automatic entry though more may be coming with refurbs. And to further my wishlist would like a refurbished room - do not need handicap room. Has anyone that has recently been to Poly give me an idea of a longhouse with refurbished rooms and has automatic entry? Thank you so much

They were checking keys earlier but I think they gave up because I haven't seen many purple wrist bands.

And here is our view right now from CL room 1503. People are extremely rude......the manager and police/security have already been up here asking people to be considerate of the guests. I really think they should rope the grass off entirely.

I agree. IMO it's just like paying for a value resort and pool hopping at the deluxe resorts. I paid for a room at the poly so I could have use of all the facilities including the beach
