Question Resort Refurbishments....

Of all of the resorts, when was it opened, the last refurb (new look), the last "refresh" (same look, replaced items) and when is it scheduled for its next refurbs and refreshes?

Grand Floridian est. 1988- last room rehab 2007
POP est. 2003- rehab 2010
Animal Kingdom (Lodge Jambo) est. 2001- next rehab?

Can anyone fill in the rest?

The CBR rooms were refurbed in 2008. The pool was totally redone too. Can't remember the exact dates though. Hopefully somebody can chime in with the exact info.

It was in the late summer. I've seen pictures from July 2008 with the refurbed rooms and we went in August 2008 and had a room that hadn't been refurbed yet.

From what I've read, OKW has not started yet, so refurb date would probably be 2011.

BWV is 2010. If they are not finished, they have only a handful of villas left.

Did WL open in 1994? I think CBR or CSR was 1998. The Alll-Stars were late 90s as well. They really expanded at that time.

CSR might have opened in 98, but CBR opened maybe in 88? I know they were open (when we almost went until I found out I was pregnant) in 90.

Thankyou for consolidating that iheartdolewhips.
If I remember correctly the Beach Club was refurbed in 2009. Possibly 2008? I'm sure someone will correct me
