Default What all is closed at the Poly?

It seems this is about the only place that has openings this summer besides SSR. I need to modify an existing reservation. What all is closed?
Thanks!

(I think) Kona Cafe and Captain Cook's are open. 'Ohana is currently closed, but I believe you can get some of the items (e.g. noodles) from one of the lounges or Captain Cook's (CS).

What's that? -- there's more to life than food? Well, the monorail station at the GCH house is closed, so you'd have walk to the TTC to catch a monorail (or ferry) to MK. The Epcot monorail is currently not running. Don't know about the small shuttle boat to MK but I wouldn't bet on it. Also you can now walk to MK through the GF.

Ohana and Trader Sam's are closed. Monorail at TTC as they redo the platform (it needed it). Check in at Pago Pago for ease since the resort itself is still closed and the front entrance is not usable. Water taxi resumed Nov 2. Oasis bar is closed as is the sushi place on the 2nd floor of the GCH. I'll add if I think of more.

Dang! I'm looking at May. I didn't realize the Epcot monorail isn't running right now. I don't mind walking to TTC and taking the ferry to MK. I can drive everywhere else. Do you know anything about the pools this summer?

I looked at the studio refurb at SSR and I was shocked to see there are no chairs or small table, just the lift up coffee table. So nowhere to sit and eat if someone is still sleeping. What a mistake!

Thanks!

The monorail stopped due to covid. Though with park hopping some hoped it would return, but it hasn't yet.

Main pool is supposed to get minor additions. No suggestion that it will not be open.

Naw. Not at WDW until October. Besides, we'd have to make it your balcony without coming through the room. If you're not on the first floor, that might raise an eyebrow or two...

Cheers.

Plan a May trip and we’ll meet you at the Oasis Pool. Have booze, will cooler.
Otherwise we’ll be back mid December.
