I could be wrong, but I am going with how long it took them to get BLT done and how far they have got so far. Based off my picture, they are a LONG way from opening. They have been “clearing” the area for two months.
If building in the Florida swampland is anything like building here along the SC coast, the work to stabilze the ground can be a nightmare unto itself. BLT had the old North Garden wing space to build on. It looks like they are filliing in a small part of Seven Seas Lagoon for part of the project. After that they have to dig out any of the remaining poor soils, replace them with soils that will not shift or compact more than planned, and then they can go verticle. Not fun, especially if you don’t get it right the first time.
I’m not a DVC member but is the plan to establish DVC at all the Deluxe hotels? Just curious. I would think that too many would take away from available rooms for non members. But then again non members can rent the rooms can’t they. We don’t go often enough to make DVC worthwhile—ie every 2-3 years.
I wish that were the case. I never really wanted to get DVC but it might be the best way to stay at the Polynesian in the future but I realize that DVC is the type of timeshare that you own nothing (unlike some timeshares that you do own property). I will basically be paying Disney in advance for my vacations. After the 40 or 50 year contract I know I will end up paying more in dues than the initial payment of $30,000 to $60,000 it will cost based on what they are saying the points for the Polynesian DVC will be. I was even told it will be the most expensive DVC on property.
