KB24- are you currently booked in CL? Just wondering if that has something to do with who gets it and who doesn't. Strange.
I just got one! I am not CL, I am just a regular guest. I booked through Disney and going Columbus Weekend.

I wonder if it matters how the trip was booked. Do people who booked through a TA get the letter or is it just the ones who book directly through Disney.

I got my letter on Monday. Booked CL with AAA. Arrival date Aug 18th. Depart Aug 25th. Hopefully impact will be minimal.

Do we know if the jacuzzi will be closed at the GF during the main pool refurb? It is in that general area so my guess is yes, but just looking for confirmation.

I was told by a cm at the GF that the jacuzzi will be closed as well.

I booked through a TA for a November stay and have not received any letter, nor has my TA. One thing that concerns me is breakfast. When I called the GF the day this news developed, the CM I spoke to said that there would be no CS breakfast available at the GF. The pool bar would not open until lunchtime. She said that I could always just go to the Cafe for TS breakfast. I have a dining plan though, and was planning to use a good number of those counter service credits on breakfast. Uggh. Also, she told me that the courtyard pool would be reopening on November 22, (awfully specific, but that's what she said) but the letters people are getting say it won't be reopening until December. Darn. Until I have my own letter in hand, I just can't switch to another resort....and don't really want to because I LOVE GF, but it is just not what I was hoping for... I am hoping hard that their timelines are padded.

I don't think they know themselves because when I called yesterday I was told that qs breakfast would be served at the beach pool grill and there will always be breakfast items available. I'm not so sure about the grill serving breakfast but I'm at least hoping for some coffee and pastries.

Now that is unfortunate. I wonder if they will give us any options or just apologize for the inconvenience. The GF should really have 2 of them.

The one option I know we were given was to use Poly's amenities...

Yeah..I thought that would have been the most logical option. I guess we will see how it goes. I suppose they give you a "pool pass" or something to certify that you are a guest of the GF etc. Even though I've never seen CM's actually check to see if you are actually a guest of the hotel. Those darn pool hoppers..

I'm sure it does happen though.
