We've stayed in Hawaii once and got a second floor room. No patio or balcony but we didn't mind because we were so close to the lounge I'm glad to hear that the construction noise isn't bothersome.

thanks

Hi - We will be heading to WDW soon and have been thinking that we would love to be able to return in the Fall for the Food and Wine Festival. We have not stayed at the Polynesian in decades and are hopeful that a "bounce back" offer might allow us to once again be able to stay at the Polynesian. We travel with our two little granddaughters and a monorail resort would be a wonderful choice plus we have always LOVED the Polynesian.

My concern is that I have been reading about construction and it seems that the construction may have an impact on folks staying at the Polynesian through this Fall. Our other choices are either the Beach or Yacht Club (never stayed at either so do not have much info on these).

Would appreciate any suggestions or thoughts from folks....

I would think about how "park heavy" your touring is going to be and how many trips you think you will take to the magic kingdom. How old are the kids? My family absolutely loves the Yacht club, but we are the magic kingdom family. It is a solid 30 minute bus ride, plus waiting for the bus. Driving doesn't help because you have to park at the TTC and take the monorail. By the time you go back for a nap, one day going back and forth twice to the magic kingdom just fizzles the magic.

The tropical theme really doesn't appeal to me, (gives me anxiety actually) but we are picking staying at the poly just because of the ease of travel.

Construction Concerns Abated?

Construction at the Polynesian as relayed to me by Disney is only slated for the area around Sunset Point currently. The changes to the GCH remain limited to the Wyland Galleries closure. I have raised concerns over pool closures to anyone I can speak to at Disney - all of which I have documented - and they have all indicated that the pools should not be impacted during our stay (July 2014). I understand some people will be skeptical and that is justified. At some point you have to have some faith that information you get from Disney is credible at the risk of fraudulent conveyance.

We love the Poly and especially enjoy the pools. We do not want any disruption during our stay and will continue to check the status of construction. Of course, Disney reserves the right to do what they want to do, but taking their main pool offline during its peak use does not make a lot of sense.

If anyone has information to the contrary, I would welcome it assuming it's from a credible source.

I assume you are saying my sources at Disney are not credible.

They were correct when years ago they said construction would start on DVC in September 2013 or that the GCH and the Neverland Club would be redesigned (which there are permits now out to prove). They were correct when they said Tahiti and Rapa Nui would not get the new room design even when the official schedule said they would be done in 2013.

If you think it is just spreading rumor and speculation I am happy to keep it to myself. I don't want to cause any anger or frustration. I just want people to be prepared for what those who are involved in the project are saying.
