    We checked in yesterday to VWL (BRV if you insist) and have a fifth floor lake side room. Here is a view from our balcony of the pool, Geyser Point and Bay Lake:

    This morning there was even more water in the pool...

    So it looks the pool is coming along swimmingly! Okay that's a brutal pun. :duck:

    But seriously, they seem to be very much on track to have things ready to open up soon.

    We enjoyed some cheesy brisket at Geyser point and sat at the tables along the shore with a wonderful view of this beautiful lake!

    The construction crew is out in full force each day but we don't hear much unless we are out on the balcony.

    And construction on the villas in the South Wing of Wilderness Lodge continues as workers are all over that building as you look in from the outside.

    And for traditionalists like me, I am very happy to report that the Mickey topiary has been moved back very close to its original position near the walkway to VWL.

    So things are moving right along at this resort campus! :)

    What a great view from both room and Geyser Point. Thanks for sharing!

    I'm hoping to switch my AKV to here in February at the 7 month mark. Might be a long shot with CCR being new but going to try. :tu:

    They've activated some of the water features around the pool this morning. This video shows that, though it might be easier to see at full screen.

    Boy they move along quickly. This is great that you have this view of everything. It will be fun to see the change from now until the day you check out.

    Thank you for the kind comments. Tonight when we went out on the balcony to watch the Electrical Water Pageant, they had some lighting on those same water features...

    Sorry for the poor quality. I take my pictures with an iPhone 6 and even then I'm sure I'm not using all the settings correctly. Regardless, I think you can see what the lighting will look like at night for the water features. I thought it looked really nice. It will be interesting to see if they test any more lighting while we are here.

    I really like the lighting. Can you tell if the water feature and lighting is in other areas around the pool or just that end of it?
