I'm hoping they aren't going to tell everyone to go use the pool at the Poly... like they did when the poly pool was being worked on and provided a boat over to the GF pool..

Tink rules - that seems like a tough sell, doesn't it?! The GF pool has always been pretty quiet, whereas the Poly pool is always full. I'm sure the Poly guests would be none too pleased, either.

Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

Hmmm. Still no packing done. Suitcases haven't even made it out of the attic. I know we are only going for four nights but I still can't figure out when we are going to have time to pull everything together in the next two days.

LOL about the attic! I'll bet you ARE starting to wonder when you'll have time to pack, with everything going on. Hopefully, it will all come together and you'll soon be on your way to the World.

This is a silly question unless there is a construction project manager on this thread, so, sorry for posing it. But . . . let's say they really are going to refurb both pools beginning August or this fall. How long would you all think that work might take?

Our GF trip isn't until April, 2013 (our first to GF) but I can't help but wonder what might be under construction while we're there. Thanks for any super-prescient insight!

Funny enough she came home yesterday to say "I want to stay at Polynesian". Don't worry, no changes we chatted first. She was worried about the view...not the construction view. But she said there is the buiding in the way of her castle. No windows in the lounge...she was thinking Sugarloaf! I redirected her to pictures of RPC..."Oh Mommy we ARE staying in the Castle building (what she calls RPC) You are the best..YES YES Don't change" She was remembering the pics ofthe castle view from Hawaii bldg...she knows where she wants to be. There's a table for 2 with a castle view with our name on it

How excited are you, you'll be there soon
Oh your poor DD having to worry if you changed the trip from the GF to some other resort.

I am beyond excited and I have to confess, I did some more "organizing" today.

I completely understand your DH's feelings.
You are right. As much as I didn't want to change, I had to agree to my DH.

12 more days for us. We will definitely visit the GF and I will take some photos and up load them while we are there.

pas - "Castle building" - so cute! Now we have "Michael's private elevator in the castle building"!! I have to agree with her, the Poly lounge has a beautiful view of the castle.

CoachBagFanatic - Twelve days to go, woohoo! I'll be looking forward to your photos.

Lulu'sMom - Only one day to go until you check into the Dolphin?! Reminds me of our big meet there years ago, good times.

Enjoy your trip, and especially your visit to the Grand. Love Narcoossee's!*drool*

Welcome! Not a silly question at all, many of us have been around long enough to recall past pool renovations. Unfortunately, my memory is sluggish today - I'll have to go look up some old threads. My guess is about 3 mos., but that's just a guess.

Oh I didn't see your post before. Oh this made me tear up. Just the sound of excitement in your DD's voice is so

OMG how cute is that.

I am learning now how to re-size my pictures on Photobucket so they won't be over sized when I post them while we are at Disney.

full resort next week!

Just a quick update for everyone going to GF next week (jd99, Lulu's Mom?) DH's work is having their user group conference there, and due to some last minute attendees booking, they called GF to add extra rooms - and the resort is FULL! Now people at his work (hosting) are being asked by his company to share rooms (and get cash compensation) or consider taking rooms at the Poly! Apparently (according to the woman doing all the conference organization) there is a wedding at the GF, as well as SOOO many people booked in for this conference AND the big conference at the Contemp (the one where Obama is speaking at on Thursday). SOOO...just an FYI that next week is a crowded one! On the plus side, most people will be at the conferences, so that means restaurants and pool will probably be less busy!

LuLu'smom, safe travels and have a WONDERFUL time at WDW! Enjoy every moment , I'll be seeing you there in September!!!

Wow, I am behind by a couple of days. Just read about the changes coming to the GF. Honestly, they are needed, however both pools in August , wow, I find that hard to believe. Take one of the hottest months at WDW and close pools? It will be great to see an expanded Sandy Cove and Gaspirillas, especially with the DVC coming. Hopefully everyone who goes to the GF can get as much information as possible!

Thanks for the update! As we usually travel at holiday times (Christmas and Easter) we are used to the resorts being packed so i doubt we'll even notice. And with the big conference going on, it might even feel empty to us!

Oh and I finally brought the luggage down. Off to pick up DD13 from swim camp. Then to the orthodontist. Then to a summer team swim meet tonight. Swim practice in the morning. Cheer show for DD8 in the morning and off to the airport. Will someone tell me when we fit in packing? DW says she'll just stay up all night!
