Looks like you will be there almost the same time! Lucky you, too.

Has anyone come across new photos of the DVC or pool construction. Any word on whether the salon has reopened?

BCV23-
Aw, Thanks! We arrive on the 30th.
We aren't staying RPC-- we'll be in SL-- but my DH keeps pressuring me to switch. I'm terrified once I cave, it will be all over.


I saw new-ish pictures on EasyWDW the other day. Josh had done a tour of GIG and had some pics of the DVC area.

LOL about being terrified to cave. We've stayed in RPC twice but have never booked it. Frankly, I doubt we ever will. It is simply lovely but for us too expensive to justify. I love Sugar Loaf. Can you fit me in your suitcase?

Thanks about EasyWDW, JoBird. Off to check.

Thanks to my sister's recent bounceback offer, we will be celebrating making my last mortgage payment in October in the main building club level theme park view. Woohoo!! It will be a dream come dream!

Salon not open as of today. I'll give more details later, but to me it's almost entirely the same GF for us this trip. The smell is there, the feel is there. The blue walls are meh, but it's not all that impactful. We are sitting in a cabana right now next to the DVC construction looking at a blue wall - yet still having a grand time

Did you find the post on Easy?

I love Sugar Loaf as well, which is why I know if I was to break down and book RPC there would be no going back for any of us. So I will continue booking SL and hope that one day I'll get the courage to book RPC without becoming completely spoiled.

And absolutely you can come along in the suitcase! The more the merrier!

I did find the photos. Thanks.
Glad I can come along.

My hope is to stay at the Villas at the Grand Floridian in December if they open by then. Those photos with no activity make me nervous. Maybe he took them on a Sunday.

erionm did some good detective work and found that the time share license for the villas has been approved.
