I made a mistake... We actually arrive in 99 days (Dec 7th) and our wedding day is in 100 days. So if you see a wedding going on Saturday December 8th in the morning at the wedding pavilion with a reception at GF.... That's us!!!!!


You are getting married on a great day -- my BIRTHDAY -- this will be my 51st anniversary -- hopefully you will have at least that many!

Second, are you willing to share that phone number that is direct to GF? The one I have (407-824-3000) is to the call center. Thanks!
Say what!!?? That is the same number I called. The first CM seemed to know very little and I even asked her (kindly) if she was actually at the GF and she said yes, I am in the GF! Are they pulling my leg?


Anyway, that is what they told me and I took notes while I was on the phone. Admittedly, a little bit OCD about Disney.

Yes, they will say they are at the resort if asked. Even if they are not. But they can transfer you to the resort if they determine it is necessary.

I checked on ebay for you and there is one CD that comes up, for $25 and the seller had 2 copies available. Shoot, I forgot to see if he was charging for shipping. Anyway, if you just put "Grand Floridian CD" in the search it comes up.

Thank You! I just emailed merchandise services, so I will see what they say before I buy it.

I was going to suggest calling them but emailing is even better. If they can't help you, it might work to call the GF number and ask to be transferred to Sandy Cove. If they have a cd in stock, they can send it to you....or at least that has worked for me in the past. Good luck.

Hi to all!

Arrived via ME at 2:00. CL cast member met us out front and escorted us to 2nd floor marina view in SL. Exactly what we requested. I love this hotel, and every time I walk in I am reminded why. Construction is in full swing next door, however it doesn't bother us being in SL.

Can You Help With This One :)

QUOTE=runskimom;45983155]Just thought I would update you about what I found out. So I perceverated on that forum post I found with the poster saying that the Gasparilla's Grill refurb would not commence until January 2013. I called GF myself. I called GF's direct phone number, not the Disney call center and the people I were talkign to were indeed located at GF. I talked to one CM, who knew very little, who transferred me to another CM who knew more. I asked about the timing of the refurbishments, and asked them what quick service alternatives would be provided in my November stay. She said the Beach Pool Grill would be having quick service options. I asked, what about breakfast? (since the beach pool bar is not open in the morning). She then checked with a manager and came back to me and said quote, end quote, "At this point, we havent firmed up that decision yet." I asked what decision? and she told me "the decision whether or not to refurb Gasparilla's this fall. It has not been finalized yet whether it will be happening or not."

I told her, if she is able to put in my two cents, that I can take either the Courtyard Pool or Gasparilla's being closed, but not both at the same time. She chuckled a little and told me that is what is being factored in the decision and may be a reason why the Gasparilla's refurb is being pushed back.

I guess we won't know until we know, and they are changing these refurb schedules constantly and with little notice. They could change their mind again!

I hope everyone enjoys their stays at the GF! Even with construction, it is just hard for me to stay anywhere else because it is so special.[/QUOTE]

Thanks so much for the info. We are staying at Poly Oct 20-28th...I was scared off from GF because of all the construction talk....Do you happen to know what will be going on around that time frame....if anything at all? Im thinking of trying to make a switch now if there won't be too much going on and all the major stuff is open..ie...the two pools and Gasparilla's. Id appreciate any more info you may have.

New Kiddie Area?

I'm ok with it, I think we will have fun wandering over to Poly and being at the beach pool, and the new kiddie area!!! Besides, maybe once I am there I WILL give a hoot about Gasparillas. Actually, I am pretty upset about the gift shop and want to make sure I can find a CD of the band and have it autographed for my DH. If only in a perfect world.....Ok, perfect world I would be in a suite in the main building...baby steps.....
There's a new kiddie area at the Poly? When did this happen....where have I been?....We'll be there in late October with our 4 year old. Any place I can see some pics of it?

The new kiddie splash area is at the GF. They are almost done with construction on it. It is right next to the beach pool and is Alice in Wonderland themed. There are pictures on allears.
