Thanks, Baler! Knowing ahead of time doesn't really help us plan but it's fun to find out!

Does anyone know if the beach is open or is still closed due to the DVC Construction?

Hello, GF lovers! I've been off the boards for a while, sorry I haven't checked in more frequently. I hope everyone is having a great year so far.

Have tried searching for an online menu to see what's available for breakfast but have no success so far.
Has anyone tried it before?

ETA--- On page 94 of this thread, there are pictures of the menu taken from March 2011. IDK if it has changed or not since then.
Photos of the entire PD menu are on the bottom of the first page of this thread, post #15. It has not changed in many, many years, so I doubt it has lately.

Welcome back, k&a&c'smom! We missed you.

Yes, we have had a wonderful start to 2013, thank you. On our return from WDW in January, we found ourselves in a long, hot Summer! It is just turning autumnal now, with mellow days and beautiful sunsets. To top it off, we have already booked our next visit to the GF! We are very fortunate, indeed.

Just booked to go back to GF! We originally had a bb from our December trip to GF and we were going to try Poly....but we just got a fantastic deal for GF that we couldn't pass up...so back we go!

We are really excited since we got to experience GF for 3 great nights during all of it's holiday splendor...now we get 6 summer nights with open pools!

Half of the time we're rushing around to get things done last minute or we realize we're running behind so we need to catch up

I have some pictures from our recent stay at RPC and of the Pool and construction. I'm just to lazy to upload them to a site and then post them

Thanks for the welcome back, I've missed everyone here.

I'm glad you are getting a break from the heat of summer, I heard Australia was suffering like we did last July/August. I just watched a documentary about "Black Saturday" and its aftermath, I hope it wasn't nearly so bad as that - what a nightmare. We have snow today, when we have just celebrated the first day of spring!

Excited for you to have a return trip booked.

Love to see your photos when you get time. I'll try to pop in regularly, hope to see them posted.

Hi Everyone! I am getting so anxious to spend Christmas at GF, but it's soooo far away . . .

So I just have a quick question as I plan and plan what we are going to do . . . If we wanted to do an afternoon tea is that something we need to get an ADR for or is it just first come first serve? Also, has anyone done this before and did you like it? Do you think 10 year old girls would enjoy it too? I thought about the Perfectly Princess Tea, but I don't think my daughter will be into it that much . . .

Thanks so much!

DD and I have had afternoon tea at the Grand since she was a little girl. We both love it, and we see many young girls there who seem to enjoy it - they have a special tea menu just for the little ones.

You should get an AR, especially during the Christmas season. The tea room is quite small, and it is a popular spot. When we booked last August, you had to call, it was not available with online booking - but that could have changed.

I think there are some photos of the tea on page 1, I'll go look to be sure. ETA: photos of the Garden View Tea Room at the bottom of post #10 and top of post #11 on page 1.

Enjoy your planning, Christmas at the Grand is sooo festive!
