    Default OKW Pool Spring Pool Closure Dated

    Back in January we learned that the Turtle Pond pool complex at Disney's Old Key West Resort would be closing for several weeks this spring. Now the exact dates have been revealed.

    Usually a hard goods refurbishment could replace the appliances and TVs, tile, showers, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, light fixtures. Of course not everything will be replaced as some of it might not need it as the TV could have been recently been replaced. Usually a hard goods will also mean a new design for the villa as well. They consider whether kitchen cabinets need to replaced versus being repaired and repainted or finished.

    Both a hard goods and soft goods can include new paint, new carpet or flooring, even new furniture it is determined it is needed.

    Soft Goods, also replaces the bedding, towels, and can include reupholstering furniture, like the pullout couch, chairs and ottomans. Sometimes they might repaint the cabinets and furniture.

    Keep in mind that Old Key West is the first resort to get a hard goods refurbishment, so we are just now seeing the results. Also DVC has now a plan in place that a hard goods refurb will happen at each resort every 14 years and a soft goods every 7 years.

    Thanks. I hope theyget rid of the crappy toasters (I have small requests ). I can see some ofthe kitchen cabinets are in need of some repair rather than replace.Some doors don't close properly and sometimes the dishwasher door rubs when trying to close it. They did the floors, window treatments not toolong ago and it's beautiful. The grout in bathrooms needs a good cleaning or paintingbut all in all we are happy with it now.
