Grand Floridian Construction Questions

Hi everyone. I just booked a trip for the 3 of us at the Grand Floridian Aug 15-20, 2013. I just got informed from the research I did that they are going under some major construction ;-( Does anyone know how things will look in August? We stayed here before and Love it but i'm afraid now because of the work being done. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

the grand floridian villas probably won't be completed at that point. not sure if there is other construction involved in the GF area.

I understand

I understand, just skeptical about what construction will be going on that far out and how the beach will be affected

The main pool will be open by then and I would just request a building away from the construction.

i think the beach is still open - better to ask questions on this thread, though:

It is supposed to open in the fall, so imagine by August most of the work would be interior in the villas building.
