Someone had to return this thread back to the first page! Might as well be me, after all, I am "earning my ears."

I hope you have a wonderful time -- I will be there in 7 weeks and can't wait. I'll be interested to hear you updates as far as construction and closures!

TIA,

Tom

Butterflygirl35, have a grand vacation.

k&a&c'smom, hope the rest of your trip was wonderful and that getting back to reality wasn't too hard. Can't wait to hear about V & A. Love that restaurant.

Speaking of which for my family Gasparillas would be the one we miss the least.

Has the water play area opened yet? The photos on all ears make it look solo close to being finished.

Oh, that's the best! I love that feeling when you're walking into the lobby to check in for a great trip!

Hello, everyone! We returned on Wednesday evening, but I've been very busy so haven't had time to post. Had a lovely visit at the YC and the GF. Here are some photos of the new splash zone, taken on my last day (someone may have posted already, but I haven't had time to read all the posts).
Overall shot of the construction

Close up of the splash zone

What's left of the beach!

You can see the refillable mug station at the beach bar grill, near the blue ladder


I have more photos, we had a lovely view of the courtyard pool from Boca Chica. When I get more time, I'll catch up on the thread and post more photos and thoughts.

Great pics thanks so much for posting -- I can't wait to walk through the lobby in 1 month, 2 weeks and 6 days -- but who is counting?

Welcome home k&a&c'smom, so glad you and your DD had such a nice trip. You can never have too many mother/daughter trips to WDW! I am proud to say we kept the thread on page one during your absence

I have to say I am kind of enchanted by the Children's Splash and Play area, and it looks like they are planting a couple more palm trees on the beach. We will be at WDW in just over two weeks, I can't wait to see everything finished and opened!
