That's been our experience too.. the feature pool always has the smaller crowd compared to the courtyard pool.

Is it possible the zero-entrance feature pool will eventually be walled off and become the GF villas pool?

And the courtyard pool will be for the GF hotel guests?

Are CR Bay lake tower and CR Hotel guests allowed to use each others pools?

And could this be why the GF courtyard pool is getting a zero-entrance recontruction?
Guests staying at the CR do not have access to the BLT pool. It is very small.

I feel sure that both pools at the GF will be available to both DVC and nonDVC guests.

I guess it always possible though.

I wanted to resurrect this year-and-half old thread to answer this question:

Do the GF Villas ruin the Poly > GF walk view now?

And the answer is definitely YES.

I'm not all that bothered since in the time that has passed, the BWI has become our favorite place to stay, but we finally got to eat at Ohana's (O-hurry-ya's) and do the walk between the Poly and the GF for the first time in a few years.

Looking at the 2011 picture at the start of this thread ... Yea... the GF DVC totally obliterates the view. It's HUGE.

After you walk past the Chapel, and begin to go past the DVC building you get to see the back-side service area stuff. Great. As you continue to walk past the building you really start to notice how HUGE it is. It's actually BIGGER than the main GF building! Whoever commissioned this thing obviously had dollar signs in their eyes.

One saving grace... as you walk on the path behind this DVC building... the speakers on the light poles are playing music. What kind? The exact same kind of old-school jazz music you hear on the Boardwalk
