Yay!! We are at 3 weeks and I'm so excited that the courtyard will be free of construction when we arrive!

WDWOswald - congrats on booking your first GF stay, and so soon!!

Boca Chica is a very nice building for garden views. I'll post a couple photos of our view from Boca we took during our stay last August. I love Conch Key for its wonderful location - close to boat dock, courtyard pool and Narcoossee's, and a quick walk out the back door to Gasparilla's or the marina.

Sago Cay is a nice, quiet location, close to Gasparilla's and the back walkway to the bus stop. A little farther from the pools, but that has been a plus during the courtyard construction. Hopefully, the courtyard pool will be open in a few days.

This is a garden view room, 3rd floor, Boca Chica. You can see the main building, courtyard pool, Sugar Loaf:

Straight ahead, a good view of Sugar Loaf

Looking to the dormer balconies on the right & the corner of Conch Key across the grounds:
Agreed and those photos are very lovely

Hmmm... That's a hard question to answer seeing as you are subscribed to the RC thread

Happy Easter, GF Lovers!!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day, full of family and love.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the photos.

KOOK - LOL about "my" pool - I guess we'll share it with Cali-D. We are so excited to see it after the renovations. I am bummed about the shallower depth, but still looking forward to checking it out.

Sue M - the marina view IS very lovely, I don't blame you for requesting it.

Can anyone who has seen new pool know if they took deep end out? It looks a lot smaller.

Supposedly they were making the pool approx 4 feet deep. Personally I think it stinks.

I agree. I don't know how a smaller pool with less room for actually swimming is going to handle an influx of dvc members. I loved that pool.

Isn't the new pool supposed to be zero entry? I can't tell from the photos posted which side is zero entry now. Also, are the hot tubs still there?

So... Uh.... Why is it that one cannot obtain mickey shaped pasta neither thru room service nor at gasparillas? Furthermore, in Gasparillas, why are the ice cream sprinkles not mickey shaped either? These are Disney experience immersion layups imo and bad misses by the gf. And what is with the terribly varying quality of housekeeping?

I don't believe they've ever been there, at least in my stays. And we've never missed it. Obvious your opinion differs, but they do things a little different at GF. If those are your deal breakers, another resort might be better for you!

As for mouse keeping, we've always had wonderland service there so I'd think its anomaly, and I would make sure to mention it. Someone may just need some retraining.
