Well, I guess we'll be staying elsewhere when we visit Sam's.

This is one of the six symposiums just announced for The Hukilau 2015 in June ...

“Kevin Kidney & Jody Daily present: Prefeb Paradise.” The artists known for their retro-themed creations and collaborations with Disney take guests back to the 1970s for a virtual vacation at the resort once touted by Disney marketing as a “prefab paradise,” Walt Disney World’s original Polynesian Village.



Symposium tickets are $25. More info on the event here:

Cool! Wishing I could make the Hukilau this year EVEN MORE now. Maybe they'll find their way back to TO in August?

The latest update from Tikiman on Facebook:

"From some information I got there is some indication that the pool will be ready by the end of March or beginning of April. I can't discuss the details of the info and I would not say they will finish the pool area by April but I will say that is the plan. If everything goes well and weather cooperates, you may see the pool area and Trader Sam's open by April 1."

"I can't stress enough that there are always possibilities of it opening later but for now I believe they are shooting for April 1 and can accomplish that goal."

I really hope there are no delays. The plan after our wedding at the Mai Kai on April 18 is to spend a couple days at the parks and stay at Cabana Bay but we haven't booked our rooms yet because the whole trip depends on whether or not Sam's will be open.

Mike, I would be sorely surprised if Grog Grotto wasn't open by then. I'd say you're safe.

Tiki Shrug looks good. I really like him.

It's a shame that the falls are gone, though. THAT was the optimal thematic centerpiece for the resort. WDW lost a lot of charm when they removed that bit of history.
