Default Complete; Poly/VGF TR, New Pics added

Checked in last night. As usual no MB worked on Moorea building door. Took over hr and half to get it working.

Bad construction job, standing shower in half bath does not drain fast enough when you take shower, I had half inch water on floor had to wait to drain then rinse my feet before getting out.

Full bath mirror is installed crooked, at least half an inch you can see by naked eye.

Full bath sink drains slowly as well.

A bulb is blown in the room.

Yes has enough space to sleep 5

Under bed storage worked fine, trundle is keeping my camera stuff secure.

Pics coming soon.

When we stayed there on the 1st, we were looking for the drain at first and then saw the small slit in the tile where it drains. You are right about it draining slow, and the ledge where the door is, isn't on an angle so the water was seeping out onto our bathroom floor. It's Florida construction for you.

The rooms are great, nice color scheme, and love the two bathrooms. The under the bed storage is wonderful. We enjoyed our stay there. Have a great time!

You should have stayed in a bungalow... I hear they have builtin boat horn alarm clocks and a skiny dippin' pool on the deck.

Seriously though , I am curious to see the pictures.

What is with FL construction in general? Or is it just Disney who cannot seem to find good people to get things done in time.

I'd write in about the issues and hope they fix them in that room.

Any good stuff at least? I hope your view wasn't lousy too.

I'm not surprised in the last few Disney projects their attitude has been get people in and then figure out the contractors punch list by looking at the complaint list.

When we toured on opening day, workers were "fixing" stuff that should have been done correctly the first time, such as the baseboards in the hallway. I hope those drains don't become a serious design flaw, because if they have to be retrofitted, it will come out of the PVB owners' dues next year.

Looking forward to the pictures!

Sorry to hear about all the problems.

Please e-mail member satisfaction (aka, dis-satisfaction) with all the problems. They need to go after the contractors to get this stuff fixed.

Hope you have a great rest of your stay!
