I wanted to start a thread where people could register their disappointment with how the GF refurb'd the courtyard pool. (There's already a few posts expressing this on WDWmagic, which I don't belong to) Here's a link of pics that's already been posted here: link OK, don't get me wrong, I get the issues with pool-hoppers, and I get the issues with toddler safety. We've had our own toddlers in that end of that pool and we've held/watched them very carefully (or we took them to the beach pool) But to me, the GF courtyard pool was something special. It was big, it was in an elegant setting. You could do decent laps from one end the to the other. It was grown up. For the kids, there was the beach pool with the big fake mountain and slide and zero-entry and blaring Hannah Montana music. The fencing looks tacky. And it's probably going to be annoying to have to walk ALL the way around. And the zero-entrance is an abomination. They've essentially turned a grown-up pool into a kiddy pool. Half of the pool is now unswimmable. This is really bad. Who else?
