That is the spot I love to watch Wishes from. We stay Sago and sit at the marina.

pool construction

What I'm posting here isn't groundbreaking news. But it's related to the GF Courtyard Pool construction so I figured I'd post it (moderator, if this isn't a helpful post feel free to let me know!)

After reading about the substantial change in the opening of the Courtyard Pool, I called the GF. Of course, I got the call center person but she forwarded me to the resort. The CM at the resort (name: Trinity?) looked up and read from something. She confirmed the Spring 2013 date. Prior to my call, I'd emailed Disney asking the same question (clearly I had way too much free time yesterday). After my chat with Trinity I got an email from WDW saying that Trinity was wrong and the Courtyard Pool is still scheduled to be open in December. I replied and got the following response . . .
=====================
Dear Chris,

I apologize for the conflicting information. From time to time, we refurbish our offerings in order to continue to provide a magical experience for our Guests. As a part of that effort, there will be refurbishment projects taking place at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
The most current information that we have at this time is that the Courtyard Pool is scheduled to reopen in Spring 2013. However, the feature pool -- The Beach Pool -- will be open to serve you, and a new water activity area is also available during your stay.
Gasparilla Grill and Games is also undergoing refurbishment and is expected to reopen as of December 17, 2012. In the meantime, we are pleased to announce that a newly enhanced Beaches Pool Bar and Grill has opened with extended quick-service food offerings.
The spa has also been undergoing extensive refurbishment and is reopening on December 17, 2012 as Senses - A Disney Spa at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
In the coming months, you may receive a letter from the staff of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa with an update to the refurbishments being performed. Guests who are staying at the resort through February 2013 have been advised thus far.
Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World® Resort.

Sincerely,
Mischa Demonbreun
WDW Online Communications
PLEASE NOTE: All information is subject to change without notice and should be confirmed just prior to your visit.

I am very confused. He is sensitive to noise but going to go to one of the ' "noisiest" places on Earth'? How will the rest of the trip work out? Or is it that you are disappointed that the view you are paying for will not be the view you expected? For that I would be mad if they are not accommodating their guests paying for a particular view but getting a view of cement mixers and steel beams (granted my kids would probably love that!). I just don't understand how construction noise outside which every guest over there will have to live through can be much more different than other noises at the parks at times.

The luggage made it to the room @ 1am- which is really 10 pm my time (west coast time) kuddos to Miguel in bell services for tracking it down and keeping me posted on its' progress.
To those concerned about the construction I have heard no construction noises here in Sago Cay. As swimming in late Nov. wasn't on my to do list and things are tucked behind walls it's a total non issue for me.
Must say the resort is so nice it's hard to tear myself away to visit the parks good thing I have ADRs which force me to leave.

Mailing address for GF?

I started to go through the entire thread, but admittedly, thought it would be quicker to just ask all you GF experts: What is the actual mailing address for guests of the GF to receive a package. Thanks!

We mailed ourselves a package, but it was kind of a pain since we had to go to the business center ourselves to pick it up. Plus, it cost $10 to retrieve it.
