    Talking Polynesian & Contemporary resorts

    The rehab of both is still going on but I can tell you they're
    going to look great! I was there w/ family in 2/06...wife & I
    decided to stop by the Volcano pool @ the Poly for a cold one
    before leaving (stayed @ The BWV) for flight home.
    There's a new Mens/Ladies restroom area in the Great Hall & a
    few changes to the location of some stores within the GH.
    The resort rooms @ the Poly ARE being upgraded as well as those
    at the Contemp.
    You'll find some great photos of the above @ as well

    We're presently looking @ Feb 2007 @ The Polynesian...not sure
    which longhouse yet!

    Good luck...the photos are out there!

    Both resorts are getting complete redos of all the guest rooms. There won't be any age issues when they are done! Both are getting flat tv's and all new furniture. The Polynesian's rooms are very nice - no '70's feel there anymore! Check out for a look at the changes!

    Actually both resorts have been through many major rehabs since they opened so nothing in the rooms are from 1971. You would have to go back to the early 80ís to still see anything in the rooms from the original opening.

    As mentioned both resorts are going through a major rehab. The Polynesian is actually done and most of what you see around the resort is not older than 5-10 years. Even the exterior of the buildings were replaced in the last few years. The rooms, restaurants, shops and pool are some of the newest out of all the WDW resorts so in some ways the Polynesian is newer than the other resorts.
