Beach opening

I know I've asked before but.... anyone know when those blue walls will be down along the beach? Perhaps those of you there now could ask? I really hope they are down in August! Thinking of adding another day .

Last month, a manager-looking CM with a hard hat and I were chatting and he speculated they'd come down around June. And when I walked up the side stairs at Big Pine, you could see them working actively on the beach area. I believe they're replacing all the concrete work and such.

But I have no idea if (i) the CM really knew or (ii) how much will change as the project progresses. Fingers crossed for you. It will look even that much better once you can see the lagoon from the Beach Pool.

Half of the time we're rushing around to get things done last minute or we realize we're running behind so we need to catch up

The RPC deluxe king room would get you both the marina view is also a perk, it's like getting two for the price of one!

Thank you that's one of the things I am looking forward to, seeing the lagoon from the beach pool. I loved that at Poly!

Turn down service is for all guests no matter where you stay at the GF. Also, chocolate is left on the bed too!

Question

We are now seriously thinking of switching our resort from YC to the GF. We have stayed at YC before and have LOVED IT!!!
But as we have have been thinking...... we now have our 7 year old daughter, my husband has back problems so after a long day in the park it may be an easier walk to our room since the resort is not as spread out, we would be on the monorail for the first time, and it is a special vacation for us.........
Just worried we won't like it as much as YC which we were very excited to get back to. I have never been a huge fan of the room decorating at GF but that is probably the only thing I can find that I may not like....

It will be a big expense for us but we were alreay planning on YC so it isn't THAT much more money..... (has been my rationalization)

Are most all of the room rather close to the monorail and main building?

So exciting! This goes above the other deluxe resorts we have stayed at (Poly & YC).

We made the switch for 4th of July! Hoping to get into the MK early in the day and then return to enjoy the resort each afternoon. Booked TPV so we wouldn't have to be in the crowds for the fireworks. We're really looking forward to it. Was a hard switch to make b/c we LOVE YC!

that's always my rationale. I first booked and paid for CBR...then a couple weeks later I upgraded to WL, then I last week I said "what the heck", lets do the GF. We're doing a long weekend and its only a couple hundred on each upgrade. and we've always wanted to stay there.

Now the problem will be next year.....who am I kidding, I'll use that same strategy.
