    Me too, who knew!!! I just put request in for either Sago or Conch marina view.

    Does anyone know why they are re doing quiet pool? I hope it's not to make it shallow like they've been doing at the other resorts :( but I have a sinking feeling they are.

    I'll be booking out first stay for November in a day or two. :goodvibes

    Does anyone know if there is a place where you can see the Wedding Pavilion from the garden view rooms? I'm hoping we can see it from a room without upgrading.

    Thank you!

    If you can see the Wedding Pavilion, I'm pretty sure you'll also have a pretty clear (and maybe unwanted?) view of the DVC construction.

    Thank you for the note, but it doesn't matter to me. We'll be there for our wedding, and I'm hoping by November the exterior of the building will be done. :)

    Even before the DVC construction began, I don't think any garden view rooms had a view of the wedding pavilion?? Not sure. Take a look at the map on the first page and see what you think. It makes it appear that a few rooms in Sago Cay may have a peek between buildings but I'm not sure that's actually the case. The open space between the main building and Sugar Loaf is a bit smaller than it appears on the map it seems to me. In addition, that building is much farther than any other garden view option to the WP. Happy planning.

    Thanks for the photo, Tink Rules. Getting closer! :cool1:

    The only pics out there are on WDW News today...

    & the only pic they have of the pool construction shows them pouring the concrete... which I imagine makes ya think it should be done soon... I hope... Mid march was mentioned as the due date...

    That picture was taken last weekend or Monday afternoon. I bet the concrete work is completed and they are painting. :artist:

    Too bad we don't have some one there to give us some intel :(

    We'll know soon enough! :thumbsup2

    They probably need to have it open before they close the other pool for maintenance during mid march...

    It will be a zero entry pool.So part of it will be deep, the rest will be shallower.

    At GFlo now. Really can't see too much progress from what is in the thread. Everyone here is saying March. What March means I'm not sure.

    The roof on DVC is getting closer. No word on point sales yet.

    Piano is playing in the lobby and you have to love GFlo. Headed to Gasperillas or a drink!

    I've searched through quite a bit of this thread, but couldn't locate the answer - has there been any word on when GFV will be available for booking?

    No word at all about booking VGF. The only thing we know is that DVC says it is scheduled to open late 2013. Stay tuned.:surfweb:
