On our recent trip we spent 5 days at the GF and we noticed how much progress had been made on the adjacent DVC building since we were there last year. I addition, there have also been some changes at the GF itself in preparation for when the DVC complex opens which should be on October 23rd this year. A new zero entry pool has been installed c/w a Mad Hatter`s Teapot water shower. Gasparilla`s has been totally revamped with more inside seating, with the gaming area being moved to a separate room. The convenience shop near to 100 Park Fayre has been remodelled and now sells convenience food alongside the usual Disney items and newspapers etc. The main swimming pool has been completely rebuilt and is now surrounded with a security fence. The pool now closes at 11.00pm instead of being open 24 hours as before. One day we also went to the DVC preview centre at Saratoga Springs for a peek at the DVC models, so here are a few photos.
