Once again a fantastic job!
Seeing all of these great Poly pics has me super excited about our upcoming trip (sooner than my ticker would imply, just don't tell our kids! )
Mahalo!

Thinking of staying here in January, but nervous about the construction. Will the pools be shut down?

I believe the volcano pool is going down for a short time in January for resurfacing. The quiet pool will be open during that time and there will also be a launch over to the Grand Floridian pool. It goes down for a much larger refurbishment in March

I've read such amazing reviews. Even with the construction, for a first stay at Disney, would you still recommend staying here? I'm so torn!!!!

When are you going? The longer the time from now the more construction you will run into.

There will be the construction near Tahiti and Rapa Nui and the pool is due to go down for resurfacing for a few days in January. You could stay on the other side of the resort to minimize being near the construction at that point, as I haven't yet heard or seen that anything will be done on that side. There will be a launch to the Grand Floridian to use their pool while the Poly pool is down and there is also the quiet pool. Being that it is January it may be too cold to swim also. We don't yet know when the work will start on the Great Ceremonial House. They are expected to do that in sections as to not disturb the guests too much. It is unknown at this point when it will start.

At least for me and my family these are not very big issues as we can minimize our contact with it. We will probably stay at the other side of the resort, for us it will be too cold to swim, and whatever may be down at the GCH wont really effect us very much unless it is Capt Cooks and then that will probably get moved as to not leave resort with no quick service.

We love the Poly and find it extremely relaxing and convenient. If these issues wont bother you then I would say go for it. It is a beautiful and calming resort. Only you know though how this would effect you.

I have no idea when I will be able to have my dream and finally stay at the Poly but I like to keep up to date on everything going on.

Subbing to the thread. The Poly is by far my all time favorite! We own DVC at BCV and will add on at Poly! We are booked right now Jan 9 to 15 in the honeymoon suite but so torn right now about the pool etc. I know it may be cool but we have had sunny warm days at Disney in January before... Would love to enjoy the pool one more time along w the pool bar before all the changes! Anyone know how long the resuracing will take??? Thinking of changing to GF RPC but would really miss the atmosphere of the Poly!
