Anyone at the Grand Floridian now?
 
Hi all ! Thought i would start this thread for any updates from the Grand. Any new pictures of pool construction or just any information from the hotel itself regarding the opening would be very helpful to all of us going in the next few months. Thanks for anything you can share! :)

We were at GF for a meal or 2 a couple of weeks ago and Courtyard pool is still closed, and screens are still up around beach. So you can't see the beach from beach pool. I think I read Courtyard pool will be finished by March. We have a stay booked in Aug, so was happy to hear that.

They are pouring concrete at the courtyard pool.

I would say if they husseled they could be done by March 1st. The would need to do ATLEAST the following besides pouring the concrete...

Paint, trim out edge of pool
Add finishing (jets, drains, light coverings, etc.)
Fill pool, test pumps, test water, apply chemicals
Finish Landscaping and other surrounding items
