Courtyard pool update



Channing is visiting Disney right now so we have some new photos of the continuing DVC construction and the newly re-opened courtyard pool.  The courtyard pool is now surrounded by a fence or gate.  I assume you need your resort key to gain entrance which is fine to me because I do not like pool hoppers. Sorry but I don’t, if you want to swim at a resort then pay to stay there.  It pretty much looks the same from what I have seen in most pics.  There is now a zero entry area and then the fence but not much else looks different.  Channing said there is a tiny little beach area left due to DVC construction and the courtyard pool was kind of crowded and it was hard to walk around.  The deck is narrower and the chairs are very close together.

When Channing gets back from Disney we will be sure to post more information.  Channing has been posting pics on our Grand Floridian fan page on Facebook.  Please join us.
