Oh, Jungle, what a shocking week. May I send you a long-distance hug from Oz? I wish I could more. At least you have a lovely January to look forward to. Please take care.

On a side note, I was checking for someone else, not me - phooey.
In response to the comments about no rooms being available in the main building with TPV, my family was originally booked to be in the main building TPV for the week of Thanksgiving. I received a call a little over a month ago letting us know that we were being moved. It is my understanding that guests are being moved due to Gasparilla's construction and how noisy it would be in those rooms. I would suppose that they are not taking reservations for those rooms until construction is expected to be completed.

Hey everyone, I am sad to say that we won't be going to the GF until 2014 but happy to say that we found out Monday that our DS will be attending a summer program for his video tech class which he is excited about and he comes highly recommended by his tech teacher. This program is a college credit program which is another big plus as well.

So, the GF will just have to wait for us until we arrive in 2014 for our DS HS graduation trip. Sometimes I find myself feeling really guilty about being sad but our DS's education comes above all. I have to get all my out before our DS comes home from school. I don't want him to feel bad in anyway. So I will have to live vicariously through everyone else who will be going to my beloved GF. Hey, I look at it this way, it gives me more time to put more money away for RPC.

To anyone who is going soon or is there now, have a magical trip.

Congratulations for your son! That is a great opportunity.. Of course you are going to be sad missing Disney but you are doing what is best for your children so at the same time you should feel proud!!!

Thank you so much Butterflygirl35. Oh I am extremely proud of Michael. I have to say and not because he is my DS, but he really is a great kid. Straight A student in advanced classes, never have any trouble with him whatsoever. I mean we have our differences sometimes, but that's it. With some of the kids that I have seen today, we are truly blessed in all aspects.

Yes, Mousemommy1 the whole trip is postponed until 2014. The course will take up all but one week at that end in August. There are talks of the class going to California to film. So, we may be heading to the west coast for a week.

Hi pas130 Thank you so much. Michael is very excited about the program as we are as well.

Yes, you are right, RPC will definitely be worth the wait and a nice HS graduation trip for him as well.

Oh only a couple more days until your trip.

It's all good!!! Will you do a Poly/GF split? Fingers crossed a RPC room with the AP discount doesn't appear in the next few days... No GF during construction...I'm on strict orders

Well, at least when you go in 2014, all of the construction should be DONE!!! So, you will be able to enjoy GF to the fullest!!!

thanks, I saw the rendering and it looks really pretty...we are very excited for our first GF stay next April

Are there garden view rooms in Conch Cay or Sago Cay? (hope I got the names right) are the marina view rooms considered garden? I like the location of those buildings

pas130 - GF Cafe next Thursday! Here's hoping the gingerbread house is in progress...haven't heard anything so far, maybe I'll check around the web this afternoon.

CoachBagFanatic - sorry about canceling the trip. Congrats to your son, though, what a great program. Very exciting! You are, indeed, blessed to have such a great kid.

Garden view in both Conch Key and Sago Cay, and yes, the marina view is considered garden view! With Conch, you could end up with a courtyard pool view; in Sago, you could get a back landscape/monorail view. Be sure to request a view of the marina, and ask again at check in.

Sounds like you are having car issues, or are you simply ready for a new vehicle? Either way, sorry you may have to postpone a vacation, phooey. Still, a new car is exciting!

Thank you for this info, clears that up! With these rooms directly over Gasparilla's, it makes sense to wait until the construction is nearly finished to open those rooms for booking. No reason to move people if they don't have to do so.

i_heart_the_mouse - with Gasparilla's scheduled to be finished by mid-December, IPO is probably waiting to move people who are scheduled after the projected dates. Here's hoping they will finish on time and your RPC stay is perfect!
