I only know about S5 because that is what we had and I called and asked. Not a bad idea if all the codes are compiled in one place. I just wanted to make sure that our request for 2Q/Day Bed with Premium view was on the reservation.

This is a wonderful thread just what I was looking for on the Grand California. Thank you so much DMAXHAWK I just booked our very first stay at GC, we stayed at DLH a few years ago, but I was really eyeing this resort during our entire visit. It was Christmas time, too crowded getting into and out of the resort so we haven't even seen the inside yet. We are really looking forward to this.

Regular rooms get the whole shebang every day, turn down, chocolates, etc. The products are H2O..very nice.
Just what I was looking for you all to say. I couldn't imagine paying what they are asking per night and not getting treated in the Disney resort fashion.

GCH is restocked daily. The VGC are restocked on the 4th day.

GCH will change towels daily if you desire - just leave them in the basket under the counter. VGC change towels on the 4th day.
It just keeps getting better and better, when I read H2O I was very happy, now that I don't have to bring body butter and lotion. Woo Hoo Thank you for the information

The picture is hosted on this site (so it will not become a broken link), but the resolution is limited.

Nonsuch, this is amazing. Thank you for taking the time to do this! I'm sure it will help several people out! Much appreciated!

Would it be possible to do that? I put this map up on the original post and numbers are a bit hard to read.

Here are 2 pdf versions: 1 page, 6 pages.

Now someone should do a SketchUp version (Google's 3D modeling program)

Awesome job! I'll get these up as soon as I can.

I thought you could only do exteriors with SketchUp

Concierge food?

Can you take the concierge food back to your room, or do you have to eat it in the lounge?

Thanks!

I would often take food back to the room. There are only small plates (or just napkins), so this limits what you can carry. The food is high quality, but generally small items. Sometimes it is easier to eat many of those small appetizers than deal with the crowds in the restaurants.

Small drink bottles are always available in the lounge, and many guests grab a couple on the way to the park.

Nonsuch - thank you so much for the floor by floor maps! We are scheduled to be at the GCV July 13 to 20 in a 1 BR. This just adds to the planning and anticipation, even though I obviously don't yet know which room we will get. Your efforts are much appreciated.
Monica

Here is what I do to get my room requests...... First of all let whoever you book the room with know your room requests when you are booking the room... Next, think of something you would normally purchase in the parks (We always get new embroidered ears for the kiddos), then call Disney Vacation Planning and order them ahead of time and have them delivered to the room(s) before you arrive. Now be sure to let Vacation Planning know your room requests because they will have some control over the room assignments since they will be delivering stuff to your room way before you get there. Good Luck!
Duck, how far ahead from your arrival did you call Vacation Planning?

For the embroidered ears they want the orders in 5 days before arrival... I usually call them about 1 month before I get there though!

Your welcome.
In July, World of Color should be in full operation so request a Paradise Pier view. I had a very nice view of the WoC testing from room 5502 last month. The view of the show will be very nice from the VGC, but the optimal views will be with the crowds inside California Adventure (I almost typed "the Park" which says something about my expectations for WoC).
