We'll know soon enough!

They probably need to have it open before they close the other pool for maintenance during mid march...

At GFlo now. Really can't see too much progress from what is in the thread. Everyone here is saying March. What March means I'm not sure.

The roof on DVC is getting closer. No word on point sales yet.

Piano is playing in the lobby and you have to love GFlo. Headed to Gasperillas or a drink!

I've searched through quite a bit of this thread, but couldn't locate the answer - has there been any word on when GFV will be available for booking?

No word at all about booking VGF. The only thing we know is that DVC says it is scheduled to open late 2013. Stay tuned.

Have you noticed if Ivy Trellis has reopened?

Have a Grand time!

What does it usually mean when a license is granted? Sorry, don't mean to sound ignorant

Is Glenn still there playing when Chris doesn't? I heard last visit that he (Glenn) was going to retire.

Will the beach be accessible by mid- april? Thinking about booking for 2 nights but would like to know how much we will miss out on due to construction. Also- is there any booking category that we could get that assures us we will avoid a crappy view of the DVC construction?

I don't really have any knowledge that you don't but we're going in April, too, and I'm not counting on the blue walls on the beach or beach pool being gone.

Fingers crossed on the courtyard pool blue walls, though.
