Poly in August 2014?

Does anyone know what the construction at the Poly will be like in August? Will the pool be closed? Planning my next trip.

DVC construction will reportedly extend into possibly mid 2015, so that will still be going on. And the pool is reportedly going down end of March for an extended period of time that will likely include August.

Do you think they will allow guests to use the GF pool? Or will they just be told to use the quiet pool (is there one or two of them?)

Thank you!

Yes, we will be able to use the GF pool as well as the quiet pool. I believe there is only one quiet pool from what I have read. My husband and I will be there in August also and I have done some research.

Thank you so much for doing research and sharing! Is it a far walk to GF from Poly? Well, the monorail is one stop away, so that is a possibility, too (to get to GF pool).

Any tips on staying far away from the construction? They are only adding outer buildings, correct?

I believe they will provide a ferry back and forth to the GF, but the walk isn't that long at all, about 10 minutes.

Most of the construction is on the TTC side, so I would imagine if you booked the luau side, you'd be farther away.

Here is a link to a thread that talks about the Poly construction:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3110773

It's about an 80 page thread right now, but the first page has a table of contents with page numbers/post numbers about particular issues. The last few pages have some posts from people who have been there recently or who are there now, along with some pics of the construction and what's going on.

HTH .
