I've added new suite photos to post #6 and Beach Pool Bar photos to post #11, if anyone wants to check them out.

IDreamofPoly - so close! You're welcome, btw - it's a labor of love.

New Gasparilla Island Grill & Arcade photos in post #10. More restaurant photos and shop (Sandy Cove) photos later today, hopefully. I need a break from my laptop.

Awesome! Thanks for all your hard work!

I saw a Star Wars game in the arcade, my girls will be all set!

Awwwwwwwyeah babyyyyyy!!!

Is the arcade open 24 hours? That's probably the only time I'm going to have available at this rate!

BTW, does anyone else hear the Flintstones theme when they read the subject header?

We are arriving at the BC in 4 days and will be checking in at the GF on the 28th! We are so unbelievable excited.

Just wondering if there is any information I can get for anyone while I'm down there? Updated menus, questions for CMs, certain photos, etc? This thread has been a huge help to my planning and I'd love to pay it forward!

Guys, I cannot even believe I am posting this. We checked in today after 6 days at BC CL. Tomorrow is my 40th birthday.

WE WERE SURPRISE UPGRADED TO THE GRAND SUITE.

I swear I still can barely breathe. I am beside myself. I am still shaking. A few pics for the time being...





I have lots more but don't have much time right now. I can post more later or when I get home.

It has FIVE balconies. They told us Billy Joel played this piano. Johnny Depp stayed here.

It is insane. We have all cried. I am so grateful. We are here for four nights!!!

I am here with dh and kids. My BFF since childhood is staying on the second floor. We have already had our scones and snacks and shopped at basin. And an old friend who I have not seen in years is coming to meet for drinks tonight. Now this is a 40th birthday I can tolerate!
