Yeah--It's definately worth the risk for the guaruntee of the King Bed. There's extra room in both. I would do it for sure. I wanted it for our stay, but it wasn't available

Yeah--I'm trying to come up with a solution. I know I'll need something for sure--I'm thinking room service is the answer.

Great idea!! Thanks!!

FYI, work nearby in Mason, OH!

The wedding isn't until November... so if you think about it--that would be great! Thanks for the offer!!

The Jacuzzi Deluxe King rooms are NOT bigger than the normal rooms. They just seem bigger because one King Bed takes up less space than two queens.

The turret rooms are HUGE, but no balcony.

In any case, congrats and enjoy!

Wow! The thread is moving quickly the last few days!

bottles - Welcome! Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

The MK view rooms in the main building are located in the same area as the rectangular king deluxe rooms. At this point, I think I'd take either of those rooms over the octagonal (turret) king deluxe rooms, due to the construction. Even though the turret rooms are my favorite, the possible noise would make me leery.

For me, there's no other resort like the GF, so I'd definitely choose to do a split, but I'm biased. ETA: You are more likely to get the rectangular room than the turret, as there are 9 rectangular/6 turret. Simply inform IPO that you much prefer the 2nd floor king deluxe, they will make every effort to please you.

Here are the two deluxe king layouts, if anyone is interested:



LuvLuvLuv - I have the menus from August 2010, I'm pretty sure they are the same today:

LuvLuvLuv - oops! I see you didn't want the Gasparilla's menu, but the PD menu! Sorry! I do have the PD menu, but can't remember if I have it uploaded to photobucket - I'll check, and if I don't, try to get it sometime today.

Are you looking for the breakfast menu? Or lunch? I can get all of it, but it will be quicker if I know what you most want now.

After that, it's too close to run out... unless I just go to Gasparillas Not what I was visioning

Much appreciated if you have it!
This just reminded me of my wedding day my hair was done complete with tiara and whilst Caroline Allen was steaming my dress and my mum was getting her hair done my bridesmaids and me went up to the lounge for breakfast! it was pretty early so not many people about, I even made my own toast...lol

Hi Everyone!

Well, after a very interesting trip getting here from PA, WE ARE AT THE GRAND!!!!! We are in RPC room 3407. Great view of the castle! :cool This resort is SO georgous as usual...no surprises there! I will check out the walled of area where the rumored DVC is going up in more detail, but what we saw from the monorail, it's not too bad!

We arrived in Orlando very late, so we decided to sleep a bit longer than we normally would and headed over here around 9ish. Got checked in (room not ready, but was ready by noon) and went to MK. All I can say, is I'm very surprised that all the rides were walk on, except Splash and Space Mountains, but I never saw the times go above 10 mins, but they were more like 5 mins max! As the day progressed, Peter Pans Flight started to build and by 7 it was posted at 1 hour. Just about every fast pass return time were about 30-35 mins when we got them. We did use them a few times, but honestly, really didn't need to!

Park was very busy tonight when we returned. We are all super tired from the stressfull travel delays, so we met up with DH's Brother and family and did a few things with them, and called it a night. We decided to leave before the ELP, but will see that later during the trip.

LOVE the new HM added interactive stuff! Don't really like the new lap bars on Splash, but they aren't too restricting, so although I don't like it, I'm sure that people feel safer and Disney no longer has to worry about any guests doing crazy stuff anymore.

Came back to the room and watched the fireworks from our room.

Off to bed...DHS tomorrow morning, but we are not doing the TSMM crazy rush, plan on getting to the park around 930ish.

Any questions, just ask. I will answer the best I can!

Stephanie

Love to hear all the above. I even sent my friend a link. We'll be right there with 'ya in two more days. After an extremely stressful and sad time we DEFINITELY need this break.
