4323 and 4423 are both on my really nice room list... Should I even admit that I have a list!?? LOL... but it seems that you have one of those lists too... Great minds and all! LOL...

As for those deluxe roomw...not sure what has evolved over the years..but 4320 and 4420 are both regular deluxe rooms now...I do know that 4419 is accessible..but don't think that 4319 is???

Hellooooo to all of my fellow GF fans! Have a terrific Tuesday!
LOL about the "really nice room list" - mine is less organized than a list, just notes I keep in various folders and I have most of my old folios. I recently started a list for all the resorts we like to stay in, but it's not complete. I'm kind of lazy that way.

Thanks for the deluxe queen info. Those 4 over the courtyard can get so confusing! I had 4319 (the photos I posted yesterday), which was not accessible in 2007, at least. The only reason I thought 4320 should be accessible is due to the message I got from IPO in 2010, when I asked about those rooms specifically:

...As for the rooms you are asking about, those are deluxe rooms. Our room assigner said they are not able to be guaranteed because they connect to our accessable rooms. Also our systems will not allow us to book 5 into that room category.

So, I assumed there were two accessible rooms, as they mentioned "accessible rooms", but if you have been in both 4320 and 4420, sounds like there is only one. Good to know, in case anyone asks!

BTW - do you know if they allow 5 in those rooms now? I thought they might have changed that this year, when they switched the occupancy of the king deluxe from 2 to 3? Sure would be nice, it has been frustrating that those larger rooms have had a lower occupancy than a std.

ETA: Oops, forgot to say - YAY for single digits!!

Queen Deluxe has max occupancy of four people

I had a real issue when the discount came out. I had a deluxe queen booked for 5 of us and a standard room booked for my parents.

I had called to ask to book the discount when it came out and the CM caught that five of us were in the deluxe queen room. Only four are allowed now.

It took several days of discussions with a manager (her going back to see what happened) but, we ended up getting two TPV rooms in an outer building with a guarantee that they would be connected.

She guaranteed that the two rooms would be connected for the trouble that we had, being able to book that queen deluxe for five people when only four were allowed.

I had questioned it earlier in the thread when it happened because I was so confused with the information I had gotten here-it was incorrect.

meredith1 - thanks! Good to know the current policy, sorry for your issues.

When I have tried to book queen deluxe, it was a max of 4 people, so this is the same policy they've had for a while, at least. I wondered if they might have changed it, as they recently changed the king deluxe from 2 to 3. Wishful thinking, I guess.

PS - why didn't they just add one of your children to your parents' res, as the std rooms allow 5?

K&A&c's mom-My parents will be arriving the day after us. I'm guessing that is what caused the issue. My oldest will be staying in their room once they arrive. : ) Actually, I'm sure that it will a fight between all three who will be sleeping with Grandma and Pop Pop.

Her name is on their room once they arrive.

Oh, phooey! Ruined a perfectly good plan. LOL about the kids fighting over who will stay with the grandparents - just what I was thinking when I asked. Well, again, sorry for the issues, it's too bad you couldn't do the deluxe. But connecting TPV will be wonderful!

I think you're right.....I'm really getting excited for that big room . There are only 4 of us, but it's always nice to have extra room. I already have "close to lounge" requested on my reservation, but I might email IPO and have them add "room 4420".....I'd really like that room set up and be close to the lounge (not too much to ask for, right??? ).

Yay for single digits.....you will be there before you know it .

I'm sorry you had so much trouble with booking, but I'm glad everything got straightened out. Congrats on the 2 TPV rooms .

GF- outer building deluxe garden view

I am so confused on this category. I'm finding conflicting descriptions all over the web. Do they have balconies? Are they the old lodge tower rooms? I know they are in outer buildings, but then I see some posts that say main building. Are they the rooms with the "pushed out" sittimg area? Or are they more of a triangular shape? And are these the same as the queen deluxe? I wS told by a CM that the rooms are 574 sq feet, but that's all I know. Anyone have pictures, room numbers of these rooms? Thanks so much!

Hello! You just barely missed a discussion about the "deluxe garden rooms" (formerly known as the "lodge tower rooms") we had a couple weeks ago.

The confusion comes in due to having club level rooms with a similar name. The deluxe rooms we've been discussing in the last couple pages are in the main building - which is all club level. Those rooms are categorized as "main building - deluxe". The outer buildings have rooms with an extra sitting area, located in the octagonal towers, and they are a bookable category, except for those located in the club level building Sugar Loaf - in which case, you book a garden view room and request a deluxe or lodge tower room. Not guaranteed. The non-SL tower rooms are bookable as "outer building - garden - deluxe" if memory serves.

If you book a non-club level deluxe room, you can make a request for the building you prefer, they are located in all outer buildings. Most do not have a balcony.

Here is a link to a post on the first page, with links to photos of deluxe garden view room in SL (lodge tower), click the links that say "25, 26 and 27"; they were taken prior to the 2007 renovations, so old decor, keep in mind there is no longer a fold out sofabed. Here are some photos posted by toodycat, with the current decor. They look to be of a dormer room, hence the sloping ceiling.

HTH!

Thank you, but I'm still confused those pics say main building. The cat I am looking to book is "outer garden deluxe". I'm trying to see pics of those rooms.

Hi everyone- currently booked in the honeymoon suite at the Poly for marathon weekend....but with pool and pool bar closure...I think I am changing to the GF. The RPC Deluxe king is available with the discount.

What type of view do those have and what floor are they on??

Thanks!

Sorry, I meant for you to click the links at the top of the first page I linked to - the ones in blue, that say "25, 26 and 27". Since this is a post about "deluxe rooms", it also has photos of those in the main bldg.

I'll put the link with photos of the outer building rooms here instead: 25. This is a deluxe - garden room in SL, but the layout is the same.

The second link, from toodycat, is still of the rooms in SL, but again, layout is the same.

Hello! Here is a link to the post on the first page that describes the guest rooms. The section that describes the main building - deluxe king rooms:

There are two room types within the Main Building/Deluxe/King category. These include the 6 turret rooms located in the towers of the main building, and the second floor (Clarendon Level) honeymoon rooms. The second floor honeymoon rooms are approximately the same size as the standard rooms, have a Jacuzzi tub and a balcony, but no wet bar or walk-in closet. Turret rooms are larger than the Jacuzzi rooms, but do not have the Jacuzzi tub or private balcony. Instead, you'll find a spectacular view with windows all the way around the suite, walk in closet and a garden tub.

HTH!

Ok! Thanks for the info! So if I want a balcony...I should book the King Deluxe RPC and then request the balcony from IPO... and get the honeymoon suite??

Those are on floor 2? Lounge floor 4??

What views do those have??

I like a balcony for some air...sounds wierd I know but makes it feel special to open the door and hear all the sounds!

Sorry, I posted too soon! I meant to add - the king deluxe rooms on the second floor are over Gasparilla's and all have a MK/castle view. Yes, if you want a balcony, you need to ask for a room on the second floor. No need to add the words "honeymoon room" as all the king deluxe can be described this way, though it isn't necessary to be on your honeymoon to book one. DD and I book a king deluxe quite often.

The drawback to the rooms on the 2nd floor is that they are closed off from the rest of the main building. From the lobby, you have to access RPC, then go back to the pool elevator and go down to the 2nd floor. The lounge with food service is on the 4th floor.

Disneyparks.com actually has correct pics too.

Start with "places to stay", then "deluxe", then GF. Scroll down to "Outer Building- Deluxe Room - Garden view". It shows a balcony. Dormer rooms don't have balcony but middle floors do.
