    Hi there, I am about to book a 2 night stay at the Polynesian. We are debating between standard room and waterview. Will we be affected by the construction? Also, are the pools running smoothly?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Irene. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort this Summer! The summer season is the perfect time to enjoy your uniquely-themed Disney Resort hotel pool and the you-may-get-wet attractions in the theme parks like Tiana's Bayou Adventure!

     Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is my absolute favorite of the Disney Resorts Collection. The South Pacific theming and beautiful views of Cinderella Castle in the distance always, always make for a magical and relaxing stay. I understand your concerns. There is some construction happening as the resort is expanding to include Island Tower at Disney's Polynesian Villas and Bungalows and some sections of the resort are being refurbished. While you may see or hear some construction during daytime hours, it will not affect your stay in a negative way. Depending on your room, your view may be impacted, so for that reason, you may want to consider saving a bit of money by booking a standard Resort View room rather than a Water View room. 

     I'm happy to report that both the Lava Pool and Oasis Pool are operating as usual, so you can count on relaxing and recharging in the pool during your stay. Before I get settled in a lounge chair at Lava Pool, I like to stop by Barefoot Pool Bar for a tall Lava Flow, the perfect refreshing frozen cocktail to enjoy poolside!

     I hope this was helpful, Irene. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
