A few over the wall shots from @AtDisneyAgain on twitter:





Looks like some rockwork was added. Note the model of the tiki off to the side.

I couldn't get any shots behind the curtain at the work in the Great Ceremonial House lobby, but I took a variety of shots on Wednesday ...


Parking lots are being used as staging areas for construction.


A view of the pool area from the second floor of the GCH.


The volcano is apparently being downsized.


A shot of the entire resort from the beach at the Grand Floridian.


A Dole Whip at the new Pineapple Lanai helps me forget the construction just a little.


Dole Whip shirts and glasses in the Boutiki.


A Shag print and other cool Adventureland merch makes me forget a little bit more.


Enchanted Tiki Room merch by Kevin & Jody is still available.


After a few Backscratchers at the Tambu Lounge: "What construction?"


Next to Capt. Cook's, the future site of Trader Sam's Grog Grotto is totally walled off. The latest report calls for a late March opening.

Meanwhile, Disney has announced new details on the DVC villas and bungalows:

Fingers crossed for no delays... would be a nice stop after the Mai Kai wedding in April before heading back home.

The DVC Central site, which is considered pretty authoritative, is reporting that the bungalows are tentatively scheduled to begin accepting guests (both cash and Disney Vacation Club) on April 1. DVC sales will likely start the second week of January.

So it appears that a late March opening of Trader Sam's would coincide with this schedule.
