Hey, I just wanted to make certain I understand what's going on with the Gasparilla's refurb. What time do the beach pool bar and Mizner's close? 11pm? And the pool bar is the only place to buy and refill refillable mugs? And Mizner's is not currently serving drinks at night? Thanks for the information

There have been some posts from recent visitors regarding the current hours for Mizner's and the pool bar, but I have forgotten. I'll see if I can find anything. Mizner's has been converted from a lounge to a quick serve location - so, no, you cannot get alcoholic drinks in the evenings. Here is a link to the story and some photos: http://www.wdwmagic.com/dining/mizne...restaurant.htm

I'm pretty sure they are selling refillable mugs in M. Mouse Mercantile, and I believe you can fill at Mizner's. ETA: I see in one of the photos in the link you can buy the mugs at Mizner's.

Keep checking.
Thanks! Yeah. I'll be checking daily but actually hoping they don't open up until maybe January, as we usually start planning then. Just going to have to wait and see. Thanks!

I'm considering switching my mid-December 2012 reservation to GF or Poly. GF is my first choice but I'm concerned about construction. How is construction affecting "outer bldg - garden view"?

Right now the courtyard pool construction is a bit unsightly for those with upper floor courtyard views. With the pool construction due to be finished by mid-December, you might be lucky enough to miss the worst of it.

When we were in Boca Chica overlooking the courtyard in August, we didn't hear anything from the DVC construction.

Doesn't it look lovely? I hope they keep the mossy green color scheme, green is my favorite color.

Wow. Just saw the artist rendition of Gasparilla's. It looks beautiful. Having teenagers, does anyone know if an arcade will be located at the GF at all?

Tom - sorry to hear of the destruction from Sandy.

Just booked the Grand Floridian for August 29-September 2 2013 (split stay with BC).

I am SO excited... it is our dream resort. Hoping all the construction will be finished by then.

Now the hard part will be waiting!

There has been very little discussion about the arcade. Not sure if they plan to have one somewhere, but if the other DVC properties are any guide, they will have an arcade at GF. Where is a good question.

I get you...it's hard to read and post about your favorite resort without running to the phone (website)to book!

We just returned from at few days at WL OFC but we did visit GF. I was lucky enough to take a tour of the Grand Suite and Walt Disney suite, will post a few photos but I only had my phone and the photos are very low quality.

I was also told that the Courtyard pool construction is quite behind and they do not know if it will be finished on schedule. I am sure it has been reported but will mention that they had the RFID reader for the concierge elevator, seemed to work much better than the cards. This was especially nice at WL as they only have the one floor for CL it just automatically selects the floor for you.

Will get my pictures downloaded and post later. We also were lucky enough to eat lunch and dinner at BOG during our Fantasyland Passholder preview and have some photos of that. I have never done a trip report but may give it a try.

Hey there! Just checking on the Disney reservation center and I'm wondering if something is up with the RPC MK view rooms for Jan-Mar time frame. I checked quite a few dates and even did single night checks in a variety of weeks, but RPC MK view rooms never came up. At.all. Very unusual. Anyone know if they are rehabbing these rooms in the new year?

Yes I did! Honestly it is a dream come true for us. We were planning on staying at a mod and doing one night at the GF at the end of the trip and now we are doing a 4 night GF/3 night BC split stay. Talk about some Disney magic!!
