Yes
thank God. I stayed there in 2022 in a studio and it was so old/tired. I had forgotten my phone charger and there were ZERO USB ports in the room.

I'm sure it will feature IP, as it has to. But, hopefully they keep it subtle in the artwork. I think going a Steakhouse 71 approach and/or modern art with IP touches would work just fine.

Yes this is my father’s DVC home base and the rooms are looking very dated and worn down. Second the note about lack of usb ports.

Seems like they will start at the bottom and head up. Standard view (all lower floors) are available this summer but then not September 1 through about Thanksgiving. They usually sell out well before 7 months because of the attractive points requirement but their inventory seems artificially low through late winter next year. I presume they want the fourth floor done quickly to minimize impact on the bridge.

That seems odd. Wouldn’t it be better to start at the top, so that if they hit any major snafus with plumbing it doesn’t affect rooms already done?

Standard studios usually sell out fast at any time of the year. Even 1 & 2 beds are hard to get. There’s a lot of walking that happens with those rooms.

Hot and cold / sprinklers feed upward and septic/drainage flows downward. Either way you start one is "at risk".
