Map please!

My DH, and DD age 7 are staying at GF in Fed. Our first time - so excited! Does anyone know where I can find a map of the resort with the name of the buildings labeled? I keep reading about specific buildings, but can't seem to find a labeled map!

My DH has a conference at GF and we had to book our rooms thru an outside source. The only thing they could tell me is our room is an "outer building, garden view, with 2 Queen beds". Anyone know which building(s) this might be? Or which way the rooms face? TIA!

The GV outer buildings are Sago Cay, Boca Chica, Big Pine Key, and Conch Key (the other outer building is Sugar Loaf, which consists of all CL rooms). I'm not familiar with conventions, but I found this on the All Ears website:

Guests attending conventions at the Grand Floridian are often put in the Sago Cay lodge since this is the closest building to the Convention Center. Often, only adults occupy these rooms. On the other hand, guests with children request the Big Pine Key lodge as it is closest to the pools and beach.

Congrats on your first trip to the Grand, I know you are going to love the resort.

All outer buildings have garden view rooms, so it could be any of them except Sugar Loaf, which is all club level. Your room will not be assigned until check in, so there is no way to know which building you will be in. You are welcome to add a request to your reservation.

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?
Yes, Gasparilla Grill & Arcade are open 24 hours.

And, heyyyy - that's "we'll have a GAY OLD TIME" for the Flintstones.

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!
Oooh, so close! Thanks for the offer, it would be great to get some new photos of the beach pool and beach, if you think of it.

Thank you so much! My DH has a golf tournament there in Feb. I'm such a planner - not knowing the building before-hand is going to kill me!

Sorry, you may need another opinion. (j/k, of course!)

It has been in the exact same spot on the first page of the last 4 FAQs, which is what tickled me. Had to give you all a hard time, sorry.

We can all relate, we need an over-planners anonymous. This is another point for booking club level, you know what building you will be in if not the room.

On a positive note, there are very few bad rooms at the Grand, so it is overwhelmingly likely you will get a lovely view. With garden view, you could end up with a view of the courtyard pool, the marina or the back side of Sago with the monorail and landscaping. If you have a preference, be sure to ask to have it added to your reservation.
