19th July 2015 through 31st October 2015- Renovations will take place in the guest rooms located in the main tower building. The Tower Rooms will continue to be available for selling/occupancy as the schedule calls for only 2 floors at a time being renovated leaving 10 floors open without any work being done. This portion of the project shouldn’t have any effect on guests staying in any of our guest rooms in the two exterior buildings as the work will only be taking place on the guest room floors in the main tower.
1st September 2015 to 31st October 2015- Hotel Lobby and LakeView Restaurant Renovation.  During this time, the main lobby area and front desk are scheduled to be updated.  All of the work being completed will be done behind partition walls which should minimize any guest inconvenience.  The LakeView Restaurant, main dining room, will remain open throughout the renovation, however, there will be some work taking place in sections of the restaurant.  These sections will be walled off from the rest of the restaurant which should limit impact on the guest experience. The Hotel will continue to offer Disney Character Breakfast as always on Tuesday, Thursdays, and Saturday mornings throughout the renovation.
The majority of the work will be done between 10:00am to 4:00pm.
