Hi everyone! I've combed through the first page, but I cannot seem to find any information on the coffee makers. ( I know, totally a boring question!) But we're going to be there in June and I didn't know if they changed since we were there in 2010. I'd like to bring some tea and hot chocolate with me, but I didn't know if they were pods / kcups or what...

If anyone knows, would you mind letting me know? I can't even believe we are getting actually close !! it seems like we've been waiting forever!!!!

We were there last month and the coffee makers are the pod type. You could still heat water for tea or hot chocolate.

So jealous! My friend and his family are returning from their first WDW trip today. They stayed at the GF, and on their arrival they asked if there was any way they could get a room with a king bed instead of 2 queens, as their DD will likely get in bed with them instead of getting in her own bed. They were upgraded to the Grand Suite! Lucky, Lucky them!!! They hit the jackpot of all jackpots of upgrades!

So, question My DS12 is picking a building to request, he'd like to be near the Marina. We have standard view booked. I am thinking to request 1st floor to not disturb my GF neighbors when my kiddos are being Maybe Sago Cay? Then we can cut to the busses as well right? Oh, decisions....I'd like to be near the pool. Whenever we end up shall be perfect I am sure
Oh MY! Driving this trip?! And yes, you're right we missed each other in 2011 but by two days that time I think! One day the stars will align...

ooh, I agree! Good points all of them.

PAS-- I might be tempted to request Conch Marina view, just bc it's closest to what a SL Marina View would be. And all of the reasons Above as well.

omigosh, pas, you are so sweet. i turn 40 on 8/23. we will be there, seriously, the EXACT same dates as you. although we are at BC from 8/18-8/21, checking in at GF 8/21. i will totally meet up with you. let me tell you... i have always been totally against meeting anyone from the boards. it makes me nervous that they will end up being a creepy stalker or something! then JC passed without my getting to meet her- even though we were at GF at the same time last year. i regret not meeting her so much and i am going to loosen my rule now! that is... if you ACTUALLY do stick with your GF ressie... ha ha! you RC'er, you!

when in august is your bday?

Pas~ as I always say...we book gv requesting marina view sago. We liked it there the first time and so we stick with it. We self-park and drive everywhere, run over to Gasparillas all the time and sit at the top of the marina for wishes. Wr tended to be courtyard pool sitters and if my younger wanted the beach pool he would just run over. ( yes, my kids are older than yours)

No school yesterday last day now June 21, the day we leave

There you go, DetTigsGal!

Beth....we used to meet up all the time, us old DISers. Yes, there's some real whackjobs, but you do end up getting to know the "real people" here!
I remember when kacsmom and I met at a GF meet... had a blast and we all enjoyed a cabana party! Fun times!

40th birthday celebration at the GF!!!!! What a treat!!!!

Oh WOW, they sure did! So, so happy for them!!!!

It was an upgrade like above (that one was the CR Pres Suite) that got me hooked on the Pres/VP suites.

The GF's Grand Suite and YC Pres Suite are the only two suites I haven't stayed in and with college tuition, it's not happening anytime soon. LOL. Think I'm over my "suite" addiction.
DH would be happier if I was over my GF or even WDW addiction.

Pas,we will be at GF 8/18 & 8/19 before moving to YC. I requested a Sago or Conch marina view on the recommendation of this thread. I sure hope the beach will be open. PM me if you'd like to get together, we can have a Dis pool meet! Isn't someone else there the same time too?

No, Walt's Suite is on the 4th floor and the Grand suite is on the 5th floor.
The Grand Suite is much larger and has a baby grand piano.

Also, Walt's suite has the train decor.

There should be pics of the suites on the first page. Pralines and cream posted a bunch, they are gorgeous!

Thanks for the info! I actually have seen the Walt Suite, and might have seen the Grand Suite as well, tho I don't remember the piano, if you can believe that! A CM gave us a tour a few years back, but I got it in my head waaaay before that, that it is my dream to stay in the Walt Suite.

Yep. He sent me a video, but it has his daughter in it so I'm not going to post it. The thing is huge. I believe it is over 2000 square feet which makes it bigger than my first house!!! 2 big bedrooms each with its own full bath, and then a 1/2 bath near the entrance. The living area is huge with more than one couch. The piano is white, but it is actually an upright, not a baby grand. They told him that Kelly Ripa had recently stayed in it. They had a great time! They are totally spoiled now though, as there is no way their 2nd Disney trip can live up to this one!

That must have been a real treat. I'd love to check out the suites the next time I'm there but I'm sure they don't do it for everyone.
