Aaahhhhh....the dangers of trying CL...there is no turning back . I know the feeling too well . It feels good to be pampered . My DH finds it very hard to return to reality.

Everything was spectacular, when we left, I had a tear in my eye....first time that ever has happened to me. I think the DH did too, because he put on his sunglasses really fast when we got on ME.

I even sat down and had a nice chat with Miss Lynn. She is as charming as the GF.

Simply can't wait to go back. When can I book for June of 2014 ?
We may have been there at the same time. We were there from Saturday, June 8th to Saturday, June 15th. We stayed SL Room 6301 - marina view too! First time club level for us also and I loved the Grand Floridian. I have wanted to stay there forever.

My daughter is a cast member - safari driver at Animal Kingdom - and one of her good friends and co-workers told me I was "living the gold key life" when he saw my yellow room key.

sydneysmom - welcome back, thanks for the review!! Glad you ended up with a great room and you had a wonderful trip.

Did someone say Citrus pancakes?!



carole-lamb - thanks for the review, glad you had a Grand stay.: I know what you mean about hating to close the door for the last time.~sigh~

MrsJ Henry - congrats on your anniversary/birthday trip!

BlueSkies - Your description of the pool elevator is my understanding as well; so named back in the day when the courtyard pool was the only pool.

pas - I caught up with several pages at once and laughed at the differing plans along the way!
Love the pic! just did online check in and now can't make up my mind if I want Marina or Pool view

I'm glad you were finally able to stay at the Grand, now you are spoiled, right?!

Awesome about your DD being a CM, I'll bet she enjoys the Safari. Seems like a fun job.

k&a&c'smom What a delicious looking breakfast! Sure wish I was at the GF Cafe right now...

MickeyNut! Good morning!! I am looking foward to those 2014 rates coming out too...

When I was at the GF last month I strolled by the beach pool ..to take yet another set of pictures...LOL ..and noticed the waterfall was not on...when I asked the life guard about it she said they were adjusting it for safety reasons... and that they could not see clearly behind it they way it was..

Also although staying CL...I had a plain old blue key card??? I do happen to be partial to the color blue ...But I too enjoyed that special gold card! The CMs said that they are phasing out the gold cards..and will only be issuing the blue ones in the future...???

To all those travleing to the GF soon...Enjoy your trips!!

WELL!! No more gold keys?! What is the World coming to?! I do hope that is only a misunderstanding and the CM is wrong. I know we have had blue cards in CL in the past, I think we were told they were out of the gold at the time. I hope that is the case, though I don't know why - just a fun perk, I guess.

LOL about "yet another set of pictures"! I can relate, I have folders with very similar photos from year to year. Now is a good time to take extras, though, with all the changes.

The waterfall was working, as to its force, IMO it was a little weak, although I have nothing to compare it to.

The slide was also open when we left Monday at 5p.

Hi there Blue . Yeah, the 2014 rates can't come out too soon ....although my DH would probably like it better if they came out (much) later rather than sooner .

I agree that it's not a big deal getting a blue key instead of a gold one, but it is nice to see that gold card when entering a park or paying for something, even though it is just a fun perk .
