They will only be doing one longhouse at a time and it will be only interior work, so you should be fine. The dates for each longhouse renovation are at the bottom of this link:

Will it be done by May??
The reservation system is allowing reservations in Hawaii for mid-March, so I'm guessing that's their target date.

Looks like we might need some DIS-ers to check on the refurbs as they go, to see if they're still on schedule or not. I'd love to request Tokelau for April but it's scheduled to start refurb on 3/31....but now if I heard there was some sort of delay or something.....

I'll be there 3/13-19 & will glady walk the longhouses to see what's being refurbed at that time. It's my duty lol!

I'll be there soon, and I'll check/ask around about the refurbs. We're really getting excited--I haven't stayed at the Poly in a decade, and my little two have never been!

P.S. I'm really over-thinking the longhouse request and on-line check-in. I've requested Tahiti--close to the TTC, and the garden view is very nice. Then I think that Tokelau looks nice, too, and it's closer to the volcano pool and GCH...Someone needs to smack me--any room will be fabulous!

I can't see that they wouldn't let anyone do that. Obviously you would probably pay a fee for changing and then the difference in the resort price. I have heard of people checking into a value and the being upgraded to a moderate for free due to over booking or construction, of course I would never be that lucky, lol.

Do all of the rooms at the Poly have a balcony or patio? Im confused. I read that its interior corridors, so where is the window and view?

1st floor rooms have patios, 3rd floor rooms have balconies. Most 2nd floor rooms have neither, but they still have the big window, just not a sliding glass door. The 2nd floor of Fiji for example does not have balconies. I believe there are a couple longhouses that just have 2 floors so their 2nd floors have balconies.

TY! Can you get a balcony with a standard view? Or are the balcony rooms paid views?

Sure can! Last year we had a 3rd floor room in Fiji with marina view, that is part of the standard view rooms. It was so nice sitting out on the balcony in the afternoon!

The "longhouses" section on the first page of this thread has the details as to which buildings have balconies on the second floor and which do not.

Perfect TY! Would love a balcony room with a nice view close to the volcano pool and GCH. Traveling with 4 children, so we like to be in close proximity to everything.

Sounds like Fiji or Samoa would be perfect for you! In the Fiji longhouse you can get a marina view (under standard category) which has a view of the back of the volcano that's at the pool, you can't actually see the pool, and it's right outside of the GCH. In the Samoa longhouse you can get a pool view (under standard category) and that long house is also next to the GCH. Both are great!

Agree on Fiji! We loved our view at Fiji! Looking left we saw the lagoon and the castle, looking straight was the marina and volcano pool, looking right we saw the GCH! Quick access to the GCH for refillable mugs and monorail stop. Also heard the luau (very faintly but enjoyed the drumming in the background).
