Chocolate-filled boxes at Grand Flo
 
Weird question!....but, has anyone here come across the following anywhere at the Grand Floridian??

Somewhere on that property are some fabric-covered boxes (some round, some oval), filled with chocolates from an Orlando-based chocolatier. The boxes are gold on the bottom, green lid with gold "GF" logo on the top.

I make these at my work but have NO IDEA what they are for and dying to know!!
Based on the quantity we've sent out, I'm guessing perhaps either for Concierge-level gifts, or maybe something to do with the upcoming DVC options there.

Just love to know if anyone's come across them and what the GF is doing with them! :goodvibes

As interesting as the chocolates are.... The "please stand clear of my coffee" is tooooo much:rotfl:. I can't see in the morning without it. Wish they made a shirt with that!

don't know.

does not sound like DVC - but with new management who knows?

maybe for a wedding - gifts for the wedding party?

I think I may have about 1or 2 of those left, we gave some from our stay away. I'm going to locate one and take a picture of it. Please let me know if it's what you are describing:wave2:

Right?! I actually have one of those ceramic travel mugs with the monorail graphic but that phrase.

We stayed at CL at the GF last Dec. and received a box of chocolates as a gift. I don't remember what the container looked like.

Those sound a bit different but who knows how the GF enhances them once they get them!




(by the way, cm8, just wanted to say I love your siggie. :thumbsup2 )

Thanks for the pics! But sadly.... ::sigh:: ....those aren't them. Ours are green and gold and either round or oval.

I think next time I'm in the World, I'm going to go to the GF Guest Services desk and see if they know.

Dd and I will be at Poly 4/5/13 and she loves to shop at GF . I will look around and see if they are available for sale while I am there.

If I see them should I buy one?????

Can't say! I know the chocolates are supposed to be fairly gourmet (well, it *is* GF!), but I couldn't vouch for them one way or another (other than that the boxes are quite nice and well-made....:rolleyes1).

If they're selling them (as opposed to being CL gifts or the like) I imagine they go for a pretty penny.

Ooh, I think I got one of those once!!pixiedust:

It was oval with the GF logo on the top and it had different little chocolates inside. We received it as a Bday present in the room for my DH in 2011 when we were staying in Sugar Loaf CL.

I don't think I have a picture of it anywhere but I'll look.

In December of last year we got the one that CM8 posted pics of as a welcome treat in room when we checked in at Sugar Loaf.


PS-- The box with the Bday chocolates was very very nicely made!;)
