    My family has been coming to Disney for over 30 years,we have stayed at the Yacht Club many times and indeed The Grand Floridian many times. We are at the Floridian at present,what a disappointment! Spa closed…pool closed…Casparellas closed……beach closed…..the whole place is a building site. Everywhere you walk or look is disappointing,either boards covering building projects or the building of the new vacation complex. I thought The Disney Corporation cared more for customer loyalty……..clearly not! We have 8 nights of our holiday left, we are all frustrated and disappointed,we would move to The Yacht Club in a heartbeat! James Couton

    • James, I understand. I would talk to the front desk. If possible you CAN be moved to the Yacht Club. Check with them. Explain your situation. I’m not sure if you used a travel agent, but you may want to contact your TA and have them help you move. Good luck! Channing

    I expected the courtyard pool ready until mid 2012/december , so I booked my trip in Grand Floridians to 2013/february . Now I find out it will be closed until March!
    What should I say to my family ?
    Do you fellows really believe it is fair ?
