Piano practice at Disney?

I am a competitive pianist, and will be at Disney World shortly before a piano competition. We're staying at the Wilderness Lodge. Does anybody know if there would be somewhere for me to practice?

If someone's baking. I'm eating.

I know there is a Piano in the Grand Floridian Lobby. I have no idea if they'd let you use it.

I don't think there's any possibility of that.

I would go to the GF, and sit and start playing...your a pro, I don't see the mangers stopping someone that good.

The worse that could happen is they ask you to stop.

Check out locals who are giving piano lessons and see if you can 'rent' so time to use thier piano. Or nearby churches.

I would go to GF and ask permission to play their piano, as long as there is no scheduled pianist at the time. GF has both pianist and up in mezzanine a quartet that plays at times during the day. Maybe you could find out when no one is scheduled, and ask if you could play.

I would have to imagine some of the lounges have pianos. In fact, I think Yee-Haw Bob at POR uses a piano when he performs there on select evenings. So, obviously a functioning piano but whether they'd let a guest play it for any length of time is questionable. Since it may draw a crowd, they might be concerned you'll try to collect tips or think you are an act of the resort.
