2 question in the new refurbed rooms?

Do they now have 2 sinks where there was 1?

Is the storage space in the bathroom now gone? Any shelves besides towel shelves to store things?

If I want to be close to transportation in a refurb room (standard view), which longhouse would you suggest? I was thinking Tokelau? We'll be there the first week of August (8/1-8/9) so I don't think Tahiti will be open yet and Rapa Nui will be closing a few days after we leave so no refurb yet.

Also, where is the laundry room located?

Thanks! :-)
They have finished the fire pit and it is up and running! I'm not sure about the other questions...

I can't answer about the storage space, but all rooms are supposed to be redone with 2 sinks .

We returned a week ago from a refurbished room. There is no storage space in the bathroom. However, the vanity area is huge (and yes, there are 2 sinks) and there was plenty of counter space for me to spread out all my stuff. There is a ton of floor space underneath the counter, but I really don't like to store stuff on the bathroom floor. I really wish they would have added a shelf under that really long counter...would have been nice. There is a towel shelf over the toilet, but it is that roll bar shelf, good for only towels, although I did store the provided blow dryer up there. There is so much other space in the room, however, I don't think you will have a problem. Have fun!

In Room Coffee

Can anyone tell me what kind of coffee makers are in the rooms now? I want to bring some extra coffee/filters/pods and don't know what to get.

We were just there over the 4th and honestly being in Hawaii TPV really put Poly up near the top of our favorite Disney resorts. What a difference, for our family, the TPV made for us. Maybe because it was over the 4th and we felt very fortunate to be able to watch Wishes right from our patio. We'd grab some desserts and drinks from the lounge and then sit on our patio for Wishes and it was like a dream. We've stayed at CR TPV CL before and thought that couldn't be beat, but now I've changed my tune a little after having experience Hawaii TPV at Poly. Congratulations on your upgrade -- you are in for a real treat!
