Would like to see pics/trip report of GF Royal Palm

Do any of you know of a Trip Report about the GF Main building?

We are booked for June 2014 & I have been looking hard for videos & pics of the Royal Palm Club but there are very few out there.

I keep finding pics and vids from the other Resort's concierge lounges.

I really want/need to see the food offerings to confirm I have made the right decision.

Anyone have a link with videos or pics or a trip report?

Thanks!!

I don't know of any videos or trip reports, but I don't think you have anything to worry about as RPC is wonderful. I don't have too much to compare it to as we have only stayed 3 club levels (WL CL, GF SL, & GF RPC), but RPC is amazing and is my favorite so far. The lounge is large and spacious with plenty of seating and great views, the food offerings are great, and the CL CMs are awesome. It's so relaxing to sit in the lounge and watch the hustle and bustle in the lobby down below while listening to the band play. It really is a great place to stay .

Not of RPC specifically, but this was the view from our room when we stayed RPC in March of 2010.



It was a wonderful experience, but not something we could have afforded without Disney pixie dust.

The food offerings in the RPC and Sugarloaf are the same.
You can look on the first page of the G.F. thread and it shows a picture of the food and also talks about what's served when.
Is the food at the CL something that's very important to you?
GF is amazing. RPC is truly beautiful...I find the lounge the most relaxing..for some reason, I never saw many ppl sitting in it? You can hear the music from the lobby though like another poster said.
They've done a lot of construction on the GF.
Did you get the Theme Park View? We had that one of our stays and it was absolutely mesmerizing!
You'll see many weddings here! They're beautiful to see!
I don't have one bad thing to say about GF, except that I wish my kids were little again and wanted to be at MK everyday instead of my family wanting to be at Epcot everynight.
You've picked well!

Ill check out the pics you suggested. The food is important. Its one of our favorite things at Disney. My kids are at the age where we mostly hang out at MK and the pool and resort. SO excited!!!
