Grand floridian teddy bear lady

Some of you may know who I am talking about. I haven't seen her in over a year. Is the Teddy bear lady still enjoying music in the lobby nightly? Any sightings? If so what days and at what time. I am there in a few weeks and wanted to say hello.

We were there in September and December and we saw her both times. We saw her only on the weekends though, not sure if we just missed her during the week. From what I remember she was there during the day time as well as in the evenings. Enjoy your trip!

Why not just leave the lady alone? She's not a Disney character.

She actually enjoys chatting with other guests. I got to say hi to her with some friends of ours that stay there every year. They love her and she's very nice. She knows the staff and many of the regular guests.

If she didn't want to chat, I iimagine she would not sit there day after day with the Teddy Bears. She's hardly making herself anonymous!

Both times I have seen her, its been in the afternoons. She's a sweetheart.

We asked one of the CMs and they did tell us she enjoys the "company" of being there - and doesn't mind chatting with others.....the back story is so bitter-sweet - about she and her husband being regulars and then after after he passed away - she has someone bring her to just be in the same place she and he loved so much......

If you are staying at the Grand Floridian and she is in the lobby and you just happen to be there at the same time, is quite different than trying to plan to be there to see her.

As Deb said she is not an attraction.

Why not bring some happiness to an elderly woman who enjoys conversation with families. Grouch.

Didn't intend to come off like a grouch. But not like a stalker either.

OMG, LOL! I saw this lady in January over Marathon weekend. DH and I were staying in the GF and we saw her in the lobby with teddy bears strapped all over her bag. I thought she just had a lot of grandkids, LOL. So funny that I knew exactly who you were talking about!

Saw Lynn on Wednesday March 7, 2013

Saw her chatting with some folks while on the 2nd floor balcony, but didn't make it down to the lobby before she left for the night. Such a great presence at the GF for those who know her story and welcome her as one of the wonderful stories at WDW. Hope she stays well and welcome for a long time to come.

I have made many trips to the GF and I think I saw he today. It had to be her. Had DH not been with me, would have loved to stop and chat with her.
