I am at Disney now, and a few weeks ago someone had asked about current pics of area at Grand Floridian that has construction walls around it. I got some from the monorail and at dinner so I will post them

Another pic from monorail, can't see construction walls from here, but the whole beach area between wedding chapel and GF pool has the walls

Thanks for posting the pictures. Anything going on, besides the wall being up? Any sort of "real" construction yet?

The walls are a great start! I sure hope they would build something in a different design other than the usual boxes. We really do like the lay out of OKW and the extra room. But I am sure because of cost they will do what is cost effective and build the boxes.

Graet pix! Thanks for posting. Heck, since we have so many DVCers on the DISBoards, we could get weekly update pix and virtually build the villas online ourselves. :)

well, the spa is closed for 18 months, so in a round about way I asked about construction on DVC...that is why the spa has closed! I was bummed, because I wanted to spa in Oct!

I think this is so great of them to build this, esp if completion is summer of 2013...it will be our 10 yr anniv and this is where we stayed when we got married...and now that we are DVC, will work out great! Glad they got my memo! LOL

I feel like the construction walls are a little close to the wedding chapel, if I was getting married at Disney soon I'd probably be a nervous wreck thinking those things might be in the background :scared1:

For those interested in some more info and links to some pictures and more info check out this thread over on the weddings board.

For what it's worth, I spoke to a very nice DVC CM while we were at Disney last week. He let us into BLT so we could look around and even showed us the room there. Anyway, he told me it is the GF DVC they are building. He also told me that over at SSR the BLT models are closed and contruction will be starting soon on the GF DVC models. He also said there should be a small pool added but it wasn't set in stone yet. "They" are still debating if the GF DVC will have it's own monorail stop!

If you read the thread in my above link it states April 2012 is when outside contruction to the building will be done. I am hoping that is when sales will start for us members!!!:thumbsup2

Your welcome!:goodvibes
The GF is special to us and a GF DVC is very exciting to us too. We couldn't have our wedding there when we married in '97 and it was always a dream of mine. But that dream came true in 2009 when we renewed our vows at the Wedding Pavilion and had a fabulous reception at the GF White Hall room and patio!! The GF is DH's favorite resort and we are already saving our money for another add on!!!:thumbsup2

I would love DVC to go to the GF! It is where I plan on getting married someday, hopefully in the not to distant future.

Congrats on your VR!!! Sounds wonderful! We had an amazing "wedding week" at GF in 2003, visit every trip...but DH refuses to pay for rooms with DVC:rolleyes1 (Im going with friends in DEC to GF..)
We just added on at SSR a few weeks ago, but would love a little add on at GF!!!!
I will take pics in December for sure!
**I remember now! Your VR from almost 2 yrs ago right??!!! You had a gorgeous gown and family!!!**

And not many places have my fave wine, Cakebread Chard....Citricos will have someone walk over to Mizners for me to get it, and Narcoosees has it, as well as Crews Cup!

I am looking forward to seeing the construction in December...! Oh and the GF too!

While I am sure it is, it does not make it official for a website to call it that.

Unfortunately for me DH doesn't like the GF but I am still excited! I love BLT so I'm sure GFV will be fabulous also. For me, you can't beat being on the monorail. I am curious to see how much those points will cost!
