It is getting renamed, and getting a new lobby design, among other things as part of the current renovations and addition of DVC units:

Love the Blizzard Beach option. Notice it did not offer the use of the GF pools. Works for me!

I am guessing that WDW management thought that the Grand Floridian pools would be overwhelmed if everyone from the Polynesian tried to use them along with the GF guests.

Of course you are correct GoPenguins, however it didn't stop them from sending all of the GF guests to the Poly, when the GF pools were under construction. As a frequent GF guest, I'm thrilled that the Poly guests will not be joining us.

I hope they get a move on things as my wife is insisting we stay there and I don't want to go there until the workers are all gone.
