Page 3 has a link to some pictures and I think towards the last pages there are links to more pictures and video of the construction site. HTH!

I have pics of construction wall it starts at wedding pavillion and goes towards Grand Floridian, not all the way-Its in my Picasa pics on my signature-- but its really all u see and its not that bad. I didn't notice it except when on path and still it was NOT offensive in size or horrible looking. If your at Grand or POLY your really not affected by it-- just while on path.

Thanks everybody! The trip was a total surprise for my kids so the upgrade was my surprise, I guess!

I checked a couple of days before we left and there was still availibility for everything except garden view so maybe they overbooked gv?

I'm not used to summer crowds because our last 4 trips have been dec-Jan-feb. Not too terrible though. I haven't seen any large tour groups and that's what I was most worried about.

On the monorail again, going back to the poly for a swim and nap, now! EMH tonight til 2am!!

Ps...Just wondering how you get a countdown ticker on it, mine is just the picture?

HI Babybelle 1 How have you enjoyed your previous Jan/Feb trips? I've been twice in January...our first trip was Jan 15-23, 2008 and my most recent trip was at the BC Feb 5 - 13th, 2011 with my son. We where lucky both times to have decent weather, in 2008 we even had a beautiful day to spend at Typhoon Lagoon! we swam most days on our last trip too....Hoping January 2013 holds nice weather for me, I am planning a trip with my BF and my son and his BF...we are trying the POLY for the first time and want to be able to spend some lazy time in that amazing pool looking at the beautiful castle and fireworks in the background Enjoy your trip and congrats on the upgrade!
~ Marie
