Exclamation ***OFFICIAL Grand Floridian Construction Thread (new info!)***

With the hectic construction occurring at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, I have created a three to compile all of the information on the internet into a series of easy-to-read and simple-to-access pages. I will do my best to continually update this thread with the latest information and would appreciate it if any posters would post information they have on the matter. I will, also, continue to post updates on the progress of the construction on my website disneyparksplanning.com! The project is expected to be completed sometime by the end of 2013 with the work on the Beach Pool Bar ending this August. Please bump this thread, so all DISers can stay up to date! Stay tuned and thanks!
