You are right - the rooms at YC/BC are considerably smaller than those at the Poly. PLUS: Some are worse than others. Not all rooms have a daybed at YC/BC and those that do not are quite small. They only have one comfortable chair and a desk in addition to the beds and dresser. Personally, I would like to be able to book the room with the daybed at an additional cost. It makes a huge difference to the enjoyment of the room if both occupants are able to be comfortable simultaneously.

On January 5th we will be having dinner at Kona and planned on catching Wishes from the beach/pool area to hear the music, what's going on with construction and such? Is this a bad idea, is there a better spot?

Shouldn't be a problem at the beach area. I would stay away from the pool only in that you may get carded and if you are not staying there you may be asked to leave. I don't think this wil happen at the beach. It may be a little more crowded than usual due to the fact that the beach in front of Tahiti is out of commission.

That's interesting about the rooms as I wasn't aware that those without a daybed were smaller than the rooms with one. I find it strange that not all BC/YC rooms come with a daybed, especially since both resorts accommodate 5 + 1 under the age of 3.

When I looked up the size, different sites say that "most" rooms at YC are 381 sq ft. The room we'll have at the Poly is 415 sq ft, which worked really well for us last time.

Can you hear the music piped in? I've been told it's heard from near the pool area

I found you hear it more from the beach than from the pool area, I know the speakers used to be along the walkway in front of the beach.

Here now! In Samoa, facing volcano pool. Construction has had no impact on us yet - visually or noisewise. Beautiful, beautiful resort!!

Do they pipe the wishes show onto the TVs from within the rooms? I know they do that at the Contemporary but was surprised when the GF didn't.

Hope you are having a great time and enjoying the Poly. We stayed in Samoa and loved it as it's in a great location .

AFAIK that's only done at the CR.

We are on the second floor of Samoa also facing the volcano pool. I agree that construction has had no impact over here. Alas, we check out and head home tomorrow. Home has gotten 5 inches of snow since we left on Friday. I'm sad.

Nope, they only do that at the contemporary! I cannot figure out why the Poly and GF don't do it.
