Well I keep seeing different dates on different web pages about the remaining original longhouses at the Polynesian and I have been holding back updating the info till I got an answer. Niue was scheduled for September but it had changed and the others I did not know when they were going to be worked on.

Well as of now, Tuvalu is scheduled to go down for rehab Oct. 19, 2003 - Jan. 16, 2004.  Niue will be done Jan. 18 - May 2, 2004. Rarotonga is also scheduled for Jan 18 - May 2, 2004.

Now as we know this can change but this is what the Polynesian believes at this point.

The newer longhouses (Tahiti. Rapa Nui and Tokelau) are not scheduled for this rework to the foundations because they are not constructed like the original longhouses.

Aloha

Steve

Yoo Hoo, Steve!

Thanks for this information! I've just updated the Mouseke-Calendar to show these new dates. I'm happy to see your website and the Disney Echo are the two best places to get reliable information about the Polynesian Resort.

Is October 17th still the date that the Hawaii longhouse is scheduled to be reopened after its refurbishment?

Disney EchoEars, you can find a lot of discusson about the concierge Hawaii longhouse refurbishment by clicking here.

I have a change and I will edit it in the above post. It is not Tonga that will be worked on in September but Tuvalu. I guess when they did the major work back in October 2001 they did not do the foundation stuff. Tonga was scheduled but now has dropped off their rehab schedule for now.

The Hawaii date has not changed.

Aloha

Steve

Hey Steve,

Any updates on whether Hawaii is still scheduled to re-open 10/17 ??  I'm due to arrive at the Poly on 10/17 and still have my fingers crossed that I'll be able to stay at Hawaii !

Thanks in advance!
Greg

Well the impression I am getting is that they will be wrapping up on the 17th because they keep on saying "THRU" October 17th and they may even go over the date. I will hope for you but I would not bet that anyone will be in Hawaii on the 17th. I wish I had better news for you but I don't want to give you false hope.

Aloha

Steve

Hi Steve.

I was just talking to Aida from the Polynesian concierge staff and she told me that Hawaii will reopen on October 18.

This is just a comment for anyone concerned about the impact of the Rehab going on at the Polynesian Resort.  The work is done without any disturbance to the visual appeal of the resort nor any inconvenience to guest's ability to get from one point to another.  Blinder fence encloses any building under repair to hide the uglies.  The fence around Niue blocked the main sidewalk, but there was passage via the porch of Roratonga, however, guests had to enter the lobby from the volcano pool side and exit the lobby on the Roatonga side to reach the TTC side of the resort.  In the Florida heat with 100% humidity, a short detour thru the air conditioned lobby is not a BAD thing.  :bowdown:
