Well the core structure was 52 years old. Not to late to get your date locked in for the lottery for when the Polynesian Monorail station reopens. I still feel good with my June 13 pick.Coming right along. That old station structure must have been in pretty bad shape.
I personally think, and it's obviously a guess at this time point that can be WAY off, but I really think you will see Ohana open by Memorial Day weekend. July 4th the latest. I'm optimistic as the summer hits, Disney will start ramping things back up again.
Hope this time the timeline is right!! We’ll be there last week of April!Kiki Tikis Splash Play Area will be closed while it undergoes refurbishment from February through mid April 2021. While Kiki Tikis is unavailable, Guests at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows may enjoy the Lava feature pool and slide and the Oasis pool.
The online version says April 11th at 8:40 PM at the Polynesian beach area. But with the new walkway you can chase it around the 7 Seas lagoon and part of Bay lake.I’m putting my trust in the app, but it says the current Poly EWP stop time is 8:50pm.
Well aren’t you a ray of positivity!I am personally voting no. Just a guess though.
So would my DH! He’s keeping his fingers crossed for August!I would love that!!
Now that’s really optimistic!!!I personally think, and it's obviously a guess at this time point that can be WAY off, but I really think you will see Ohana open by Memorial Day weekend. July 4th the latest. I'm optimistic as the summer hits, Disney will start ramping things back up again.
I love me some Ohana
Let's hope. Them announcing we can take photos without masks on today made me feel that little happy hint of Disney magic I haven't felt in a while. Something so little, so I am happy for maskless photos on my trip.
Great progress on the monorail. Hoping they finish earlier than expected.
Lol, sorry - not my usual style. I'm just a little down on Disney seemingly not doing much of ANYTHING new lately. With some exceptions, resort amenities and available dining options property wide haven't really changed all that much since reopening.Well aren’t you a ray of positivity!
I highly recommend the chicken yakisoba at Kona Cafe and the surf and turf roll (you can get this at either Kona or Tambu Lounge - its not listed on the menu but you can still order it); among cocktails, I recommend the Backscratcher (a classic!) and while not unique to the Poly, the Magical Star cocktail is a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy your stay!First stay at the Poly. Have some questions and wanted some feedback from the experts.
Have Kona reserved for breakfast and dinner the same day. If you could only do one which would you chose? Does Kona do walk-ins?
What time is the Electrical floating pageant?
Requested Tokelau and Moorea through mde. I’d prefer a room with a balcony...would you still recommend faxing the resort? We’re staying in a standard dvc villa. From what I understand Tokelau has a balcony on the 2nd and 3rd floor while Moorea only has them on the 3rd.
Tonga toast and coconut meatballs are on my list...any other suggestions for must try food and drink? Big fan of specialty cocktails just not a huge pineapple fan.
How reliable is the boat from the pier for transportation to MK? What time does it start running?
How crowded does the Tambu lounge get after the parks let out?
Same question with the lava pool crowds. I understand it varies so just asking in general.
Does the Poly have a concierge?
Any other suggestions are welcome
You'll just miss me there! I check out from the same category at GF on 6/1 and the Poly part of my trip will now be spent at YC. Just think, whenever you get to the Poly you will have a beautiful new room.Our trip is June 3-10. Yesterday we were moved to Grand Floridian, Outer Building, Theme Park View. We'll get to stay at Poly one day....
