***New Pics of the BLT pool & Grand Villa*** 5/18

I am not sure if these have been posted but I remember reading a thread where there was a concern that the curve of the building might cast a shadow on the pool.

Well according to the new picture it looks like it is completely in the sun!!!

It does however look small & I am thinking this could be the reason why only BLT owners & guests have access to it.

What do you all think?

And grand villa pics, too!!

The pool looks a little small - but looks nice and the slide seems bigger than I expected!

I assume the Mickey head on the left is the children's play area and the smaller one on the right is the hot tub. Is that the pool bar to the right of the hot tub? And what's the longer building to the right of that? I assume lockers, bathrooms, etc?

That is a nice update-thanks. It does look small though-a shuffleboard is 6 feet wide, looks like the pool is about 50 feet across in the wide spots?-it appears they will have a sand beach which will be nice.

What are the kind of turquoise green strips in the bottom left of the pool picture? They look like shuffleboard courts.

Yeah, it does look like shuffleboard courts, does any other resort have them?

It also looks like the mickey shape pool is a hut tub. It doesn't look like there is not much room for lounge chairs...

I don't know the answers to your questions but I am just so excited to finally see some "live" pics I had to post!!!

I've never seen a shuffleboard before. I'll have to play when we go Mar 2010. At least that'll keep 4 people out of the pool.

Thanks for the link - it's nice to see those pics!

I'm still not certain about the pool shade though. It appears to my eyes by the shadows being cast that this picture was taken in the morning. That still leaves the question of what happens in the afternoon.

As the earth rotates, the sun moves to different locations in the sky. So there will be different shadows cast. Sometimes the pool will be in the sun - but where will be times when it's in shadow.

I would know - I took a picture of BLT several months ago that shows BLT's shadow on the (under construction) pool. This was from 1:45 pm.

BLT looks great.

I was amazed to read that the GV's will have 5 balconies!

Thanks Luvariel and DonaldDolewhip! The finished pics are great to see! I can't wait to go there in person and see it myself. The pic of BLT under construction gives a great scale as to size. DonaldDolewhip, you must have a great camera ..... and a good eye!

Great pics! Anyone else notice the comment about the observation deck. It says that it is going to be a "reservation only" bar (available for nightcaps!).

Interesting,?!
