cgulls - thanks for the reminder! I was thinking of our visit last May, when the beach looked like this:




instead of when we were back again in August and it looked like this:




We were there the last week of this past April, but didn't take any photos of that area, but remember someone (you?) posting some from the BPK staircase.

Sorry for the confusion, Baygirl!!

The VGF went on sale last week, with a projected opening date of October 23, 2013.

See above. No need to freak out, the resort is still very pretty and the construction didn't affect our stay much at all last month.

Totally agree. I probably would not have even noticed it much if I weren't such a uber-planner hanging out on the DIS. I bet if I asked DH how the construction affected our trip he'd say "what construction, I thought that was down the street". I'm sure by the time you are there in Jan it will look great, but even now I wouldn't have changed my plans at all.

Probably a convention... That's where they usually stay because it's closer to the convention center...



And later.. if they start the planned refurbs... they will close off a building at a time.

sotoalf - if you are reading: Sorry, I forgot about your question regarding Mizner's photos after Gasparilla's reopened. (for anyone who doesn't know, Mizner's lounge was turned into a quick serve location during the Gasparilla's refurb) I checked it out on my trip last month, it looks exactly the same as it always has - but I took a couple photos anyway, if you want to see them.

So now I am starting to worry about RPC and the TPV room that we have booked for July. Last time we did this, our room overlooked the marina and had a direct view of the castle. Loved it!!! I'm nervous that we will not have the marina/castle view and could be somewhere else in RPC with TPV.

Is there another area that the GF considers a TPV in RPC, like overlooking Space Mountain and not the castle?

I don't believe so, no. I think they're all in that same area over Gaspy's.
