Disneyland, DH and my horses have a soothing effect on my soul, and always brings a smile on my face.

This thread has been great! I just booked a room at the GC for 3 nights in October. I'm very excited to be staying there for the first time.

Hello!

To those who have stayed recently at GC, I have a question:
Are there Disney "to go" type cups with lids in the rooms, or are they available from mousekeeping?
I really don't like when my little guy drinks out of glass cups, plus, the cleanliness factor
(DW hotels we've stayed at have had styrofoam cups with lids with cute Disney logos on them)
Thanks!

We will be there, WDW, in about 45 days. We will miss DL something awful. Hope to return in 2012 when all the new stuff is up and running. Now I will have to live through all of you for all my D'land fun.

I just came back from a stay at VGC. No, they don't have the "to go" type cups with lids. But, you can get those at the Hearthstone Lounge so that's not too bad.

Perhaps you could grab some from White Water Snacks?

You could also bring those disposable sipper/straw cups from home.

Sorry guys, I've searched but couldn't find the answer.....

Anyone know the new self-parking and valet rates? I'm too lazy to call haha.

Need to decide whether to keep the car two extra days -- rental is only $14 extra but parking might make it not worth it.

Thank you!

That's a pretty cool view Jack and I wouldn't mind getting that view come this August. One question, is that patio below you in that picture, available for all guests of the GC or part of a bigger villa? It looks like a good spot to just kick back at night.

When we were in that room a couple of years ago it was not open. The area is down 1 floor from our room, so sorry I can not answer that question. We could see the fireworks each night and great for the night music down in DTD.

Checking in to the villas for the first time in 3 days. We stayed in a concierge room that looked out on grizzly rapids 2 years ago. We didn't make a view request for our 1 bedroom and hope we end up with something decent. I'm so glad they added villas to DL as sharing a regular room with DH, my mom and brother is really not enjoyable.
