I'm glad you got to try the GF, it's not somewhere I'm too bothered about staying at. We did a Poly and Beach Club split in October, and need to admit something to you......I liked the Poly a little bit more! There I said it, but i wont say it again lol

I still love the Epcot resort area better though, so maybe we need to try the BWI or the YC
Thanks Monica!

I hear ya!! I LOVE the Poly. But also love the Epcot area. I'm thinking BWI next time....

That room at the Poly sounds fantastic!!! When we stayed there last year we were in Tokalau. I wanted Somoa or Tokalau. Can't wait to hear all the details.

Thank you! We did have a good time, despite a few issues.

The Poly was awesome! I had requested Samoa or Tokelau and top floor. So I was very pleased with what we got!

Jodi ad Shelly- I totally hear you about the new Alice splash area at the GF. All we could hear from our balcony in SL (facing the courtyard) was DING DING DING. All.day.long!!!!! Walking from SL to the main building that's all we heard also! I just don't think it belongs there. We still love the GF but I totally agree that the magic wasn't all there like it was last year due to all of the construction.

I really hope they aren't planning to add those splash areas to all the pools.

I saw a picture of the Alice splash thingy a couple of months ago. The first thing I thought was it doesn't even fit into the theme. Where did they come up with Alice in W????

Almost done loading and editing all my pics!

Here's a sneak peak for you!

Our room at the GF -- 3rd floor center with the lights on. Jodi's room is the one to the right of it.



The view from the balcony ~



The room ~





And the balcony ~




I'll be back with some Poly pics.

Crap!! All my pics loaded HUGE. I thought I had it set to medium. Well, I'm not reloading them to make them a different size. So I guess you will be getting a HUGE TR!!

Hi Shelly,

You can change the image size when you upload it to PB.

First, you have to go back and use their old style website.

Click on the green "Upload" button on the top of the page.

On the page "Upload to Photobucket" click on "Customize your upload options"

A pop-up box will show up, "Photo Options"

Select "640 x 480"

Then hit "Save" at the bottom of that page.

Now all of your images you upload will be the normal web page size.

I have never stayed at GF, but I visit every time I am in WDW. I loved your pictures!!! We are leaving soon and I can't wait to see it with all its holiday decor.

I know. After I texted you my room # and you said it was right next door DS13 was like -- did you guys request that??? I said no we didn't, but I guess we did have similar room requests - upper floor, full balcony, marina view, daybed! What are the odds?!!

That's what it was set to. Or at least I thought so. That was the size of the last trip's pics....Probably because of the change to the new Photobucket, and then I had changed it back to the old style. Why can't they just leave things alone?!

Changing the size now will not change the pics that are already loaded will it?

Hey, don't mess with the pics! I like 'em big! It's good for these over-40 (way over ) eyes.

I can't believe the of being right next door to Jodi! And what a pretty view! Your room looks very nice, too.

Thanks for the sneak peek! Very smart to leave us wanting more.

I know what you mean. I have to squint to see things anymore!

I just don't want any giant close ups of me all over the internet!!
