These estimates of amount of time to complete buildings are super rough estimates because I'm just going off of what other posters have noted as they've stayed:

Building 10 (Toy Story-Preferred)-Complete/Roughly 64 days (March 23-May 26)
Building 9 (Toy Story-Preferred)-Complete/Roughly 30 days (May 26-June 25)
Building 8 (Fantasia-Preferred)-Complete/Roughly 93 days (May 31-September 1) Obviously this one is an outlier. I'm not sure if it is because I didn't receive any updates or if something happened to cause this building to take a lot longer.
Building 7(Love Bug-Standard)-Complete/Roughly 40 days (August 1-September 10)
Building 6 (Love Bug-Standard)-Complete/Roughly 40 days (September 1-October 11)
Building 5 (Fantasia-Preferred)-In Progress (August 10-)
Building 4 (Dalmatians-Preferred)-Complete/Roughly 57 days (April 4-May 31)
Building 3 (Mighty Ducks-Standard)-Complete/Roughly 80 days (April 29-July 18)
Building 2 (Mighty Ducks-Standard)-Complete/Roughly 72 days (May 30-August 10)
Building 1 (Dalmatians-Preferred)-In progress (June 30-)

*Coffee makers*
The coffee brand is Joffrey's. I believe the coffee maker is a Cuisinart 2-cup and if the same as POP it's a WCM19. It uses pods not k-cups. The pods are provided for you in the room.

There haven’t been any report of renovations. I’m curious too, we are going mid May and would love to stay at A renovated room but since I don’t think they’ve started, I don’t think they will have any renovations done by May.

That’s so weird because it’s listed everywhere online that they would start at the end of February and now it’s getting to be the end of March.

    We have a September trip booked. I even got the email that mentions the refurbishment. Speculation is, the work will start after Pop is done.

    I saw all the reports about it too, we got an email about it, but when I look on the website there isn’t any warning about renovations like the other resorts.

    Oh god if they are waiting until pop is done I won’t have a chance at a new room in October. They are way behind over there.

    We have rooms at ASMo in May. At this point, I kind of hope they don’t begin until after our trip- lol

    We stayed at Pop and the new rooms are so great! I just had a friend stay at music with her husband and she said they had to sleep in different beds and there was nowhere to put their suitcases. The beds in the refurbished rooms make all of the difference to me.

    I would hope they have started by June but you really never know. They are behind at pop so it’s hard to tell when they will start at movies.

    Friends are going next month, and were told that there would be landscaping/outdoor refurb that should not affect their trip.

    Not to hijack the thread but figured this was probably better than creating a whole new post...can you get connecting rooms at all star movies? Also can you request to be near the Dalmatians? Thanks!

    Yes there are connecting rooms at all star movies and you should be able to choose Dalmatians as one of your requests for online check in. It doesn't mean you will for sure get that area, but we usually always get our requests met. If not, we go to the front desk and ask nicely if there is any possible way to move. At AKL last year we had to wait a night, but it was totally worth it to get a king bed.
