Yikes! According to those pictures it's hard to imagine the pool bar and splash pad being open in just two weeks?!?

I would request Conch Key since it also has a view of the marina and is slightly more centrally located. I would normally say that *all* of the views from Conch Key are good, but the courtyard views may not be ideal due to the upcoming pool construction. I also love the courtyard garden view at Boca Chica (facing the main building), but these rooms will now look directly at the construction as well.

In sum, I would go for Conch Key marina view so that you can definitely avoid any view of construction, yet also be located in the middle of everything.

Hopefully your request will be met!

It is hard to imagine they can finish in a couple weeks, but they've already pushed back the date to the 28th instead of the 24th. Possible they will have to move it out even farther.

There are food photos in post #3, but somehow I didn't put any lounge photos. I need to get all these on the first page, I know there are some posted by minniesota in a past thread, I'll find the link.

ETA: here is the link, scroll down to post #140. (SL photos nearly to the end of the post)

Good to see you too, k&a&c'smom! I am always lurking on here, but sometimes don't get around to posting as often as I should! Nice to see that you are still providing so many DISers with such helpful advice-- especially as this crazy construction progresses.

mariamouse - Thanks! The construction has gotten a little out of hand, hasn't it?! Luckily it seems everything should be finished by the end of the year (except DVC, of course).

k&a&c'smom, thank you for posting the link to the recently taken GF DVC pictures. I have to say I am impressed by the overall progress. It will be great to see how the Beach Pool Bar and the children's play area look at the end of the month. Fortunately you will be there, so we are sure to get some great pictures! (no pressure ) By the time I go in mid-September I should be able to get an idea (and pictures) of how messy/involved the courtyard pool area, as well as around Gaspirilla's will be. Eventually the work will be done, and the Grand Floridian will be restored and look beautiful again.

Grand Floridian construction dates

I just heard from the IPO that the beach pool splash
Area opening has been delayed to 8/31; however, the courtyard
Pool will still be closing 8/23.

Hmmmm....this conflicts with a previous posters information that the courtyard pool closure was pushed back to 8/28.

I have not been told dates.. but Disney would do everything to minimize the impact on guests in their flagship resort...

My guess would be as soon as Beach Pool is completely open (quick service, splash pad and all), they close down Courtyard... They would not risk closing them both at the same time.. Too many unhappy guests in a resort like Grand Floridian would not be good business....
