    Just wanted to send out a last minute message. I was told this morning that people are being booked into the new rooms in Rapa Nui 3rd floor so someone should be coming back with info on the finished rooms. They have started on Fiji and they are trying to stay on schedule. While I was there and staying in a room that was in the building being worked on there were no walls up so unless you peeked into the room you had no idea work was being done. I will say that during the day you could hear grinding coming from the room below (I was on the only open floor 2nd floor) but if you walked around the grounds you could not tell there was work going on.

    They said Rapa Nui took a while because they needed to order things and it was their first building they had to do and they learned what the best way to do things would be so they are hoping they can finish the other buildings faster.

    Well that is my last update for a while. I did reactivate the web pages with some increased bandwidth (thanks to some who have donated) and I plan on adding more photos of views and other things from my trip when I get back. Until then Aloha¬Ö

    Thanks for all your updates Steve. You helped me get our "perfect" room in Samoa last year!

    Steve, Thank you for all the work and love you put into your site. The knowledge you share gives so many the ability to have a vacation of a life- time. We each make our own magic in life, as well on our vacations. But your knowledge increases our ability. :hug:

    My husband and myself are staying at the Polynesian (his first time) to celebrate our 26th anniversay and his birthday. We were scheduled in concierge, but our vacation is during their rehab. So we have just a standard room. We are hoping for a magic kingdom view in Tahiti. We have a lagoon view room reserved and have requested a balcony and MK view. Do you have any suggetions for room numbers?

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful vacation on Maui. It is one of our favorite islands.

    A big thank you to you and Tara for all the time and energy you give to your site.
     
  9. Thanks Steve,

    Have a wonderful trip. We appreciate your insights and information.

    Aloha,
    Gordon

    Aloha Angel16,

    Most of the views from Tahiti see the castle or Space Mtn with the exception of a few that are near the middle entrance to the building where there are many bushes and trees (rooms X028-X029) but I wish you luck on your room location. I am not sure how you can request a MK view since there is no category of room labeled that and chances are the room assigner has no idea what rooms have what view. Not that you can blame them since they would have to walk our to each lagoon view room and look to see what the view is like. I am sure if you get Tahiti and Tahiti is not closed while you are there you will have a nice view.

    Aloha

    Steve

    and what an improvement. The customer service aspect which I had felt has been seriously lacking over the past 2 years has been most definitely addressed and our experience was excellent. We will definitely return soon. I wrote a trip report twice but for some reason the DISBoard won't let me post it. It keeps saying, "You posted this in the last five minutes.' Ugh!! I'll try again in the next few days. Thanks for the update, Steve. I knew that I could see people in Rapa Nui on the third floor. Threehearts(Susan)

    Thank you, thank you, Tikiman!

    I have been so frustrated over the past few months; every time I have tried to reach your site, it's been down. We are bringing my in-laws to the Poly next summer for their first Disney trip, and I want them to check out your site and get really psyched! It really helped put us in the mood last year (like we needed help ;) )

    I'll be sending you a donation. Hope everyone else here does, too! Hope this helps avoid those problems?

    Thanks again.
