Does anyone know what the schedule for refurbishment is by section? Congress Park now, then? We are going in Aug 2020 and I would love to get a refurbished room

No one knows, but likely Springs next. They did say up to 3 years, but they did the first buildings so quick that it was looking like < 2 years. Then I heard there hasn't been much activity this week with them pulled off on other jobs, so who knows.

    If you are staying preferred view then I'd request Congress park as that's the area they are working on now.

    Also the pictures posted on the UK dibb DVC forum look awesome.

    We are going to stay next June (our first SSR stay). If we did Standard, does anyone know which standard area might be completed? I would rather save and book standard, but will book preferred if it's the only way to get a renovated room. Thanks!

    Hi,
    We have a 17 night stay booked from 17th October and have a preferred studio booked. We would like to Stay in Congress Park because of it's close proximity to Disney Springs. I have read elsewhere that the refurbishment is currently taking place in blocks 1 & 2. Does anyone know which room numbers this refers to?
    Is it possible that most of Congress Park would be complete by this time. Finding it difficult to get up to date info.
    Thanks for any replies.

    Any updates on the buildings in Congress Park which are being refurbished, meaning any news on when they will be available for occupancy? I saw photos from about two weeks ago with all the furniture in but not the finishing touches like coffee pot on counter, sheets on beds, etc. Haven't seen any updates since.

    My wife saw on Facebook today that people are in the renovated rooms already.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing. If you can share the FB post I would be grateful. We are arriving in three weeks and have a preferred 2 bedroom, hoping for a renovated room.

    Just my opinion, but if any standard buildings are done by next June, I would guess it would be the Paddock, since Grandstand and Carousel were built after the other 3 sections. And if any of the Paddock buildings are done, I wouldn't count on all 5 of them being done.

    Thanks! I think you are right. I will probably book preferred to be on the safe side.

    I keep thinking they will do Carousel before Paddock or Grandstand, just so people will love Carousel for a while.

    Yep. I LOVE SSR. But I have to admit, it was due for a refurb. The upgraded furniture and fixtures are elegant. I like them. It's just missing something that gives it ... warmth? heart? Some color in pillows, paintings/sculpture, or a rug or some custom lamps similar to the horse lamps in the old rooms would do wonders to finish the rooms and give them some Disney magic.
    .
    Also, where is the jacuzzi tub?
    I so agree and I will miss that tub.

    A member of the DVC Members Only Facebook group posted studio pictures yesterday. It does not have the Murphy bed under the TV, so still sleeps 4. Interested that they added it to the 1 bedroom, which they should have done at BR, BW, BC.

    From what I’ve seen posted, Paddock is after a Congress Park.
