Thank you, Janet. I know what a difficult time this is for you...and those of us blessed to call her friend. We will miss her friendship terribly...she was such so very special.

I haven't been on the Dis or the GF thread much at all...but Sarah was a dear friend to many here!

It's hard to think of the Grand and not think of our Precious junglecruiser She was truly a special, wonderful woman!!

Sarah was a dear friend to me and to many others and we all know how much she loved the GF - it was her home away from home. For those wishing to make a donation in her memory, her family designated a charity, The Valerie Fund. This was posted on the commmunity thread started in her memory, but decided to post it here as well to reach as many as possible that knew Sarah. The Valerie Fund Children's Centers provide treatment and medical services to children with cancer and blood disorders.

Thank you all for your expressions of comfort. I know this means so much to the family at this time. God bless you all.

My prayers are with her family. What a terribly sad thing. I remember seeing so many of her posts, and while I wasn't as interactive with her as some of you were, I enjoyed reading her posts. What a terrible loss.

I will miss JungleCruiser too. Her family is in my prayers.

Now that Gasparilla's is reopened, is there also a new menu? Is Mizner's open again as a lounge?

We are here now.

The menu looks pretty much the same as before. They do have a make your own salad option which I don't remember from before, but other options are the same or very similar to the menu before the remodel.

The set up is MUCH better though! There is plenty of seating and the atmosphere is peaceful.

Do you have any pictures or is it all just the same? Is it true they removed all the games? Thanks!

I posted pictures via a link a few pages back.

The games are still there but now right at the back - think they had a kids club there or something in the past. But basically all where it used to be games is now seating.

Our last day today but for the first time in two weeks they are working on the courtyard pool!

Janet B - thank you for the info, and for the memorial thread for dear Sarah. Her family have been in my thoughts over the past few days.

Hello, GF lovers. I haven't been keeping up with all the construction news, but here are some photos of the new seating area and arcade in Gasparillas - sent to me by johnsonet.

Gareth&Hayley, I will look back through the posts to see your photos, thank you for posting. Tam1067, thanks for the update on the menu.

















And a lovely shot of the Castle, still decked out in its Christmas finery.
