What do you mean by "nicer sections" ? Are you referring to the rooms that have already been refurbished or are you referring to the resort in general. I can't speak to the check in dates for the other sections but the Lakes and Fountains have Fri/Sat/Sun check in and they have been refurbished.

I was refering to the refurbished units.
Thanks, Rod
Then you would have to hope you get one in the Fountains I, Fountains II or the Lakes section. The Cascades is supposed to be undergoing refurbishment right now so you may or may not get one in there. Ironically Vistans is refurbishing the newest units first and the oldest ones last.

I was under the impression that the Cascades SA billing has started, but the physical renovation is starting later. The Falls and Springs renovations HAVE physically started and are slated to be completely done by June or July this year, so if you get in Lakes, Fountains I or II, Falls, or Springs, you should be good.
