I highly recommend you email a room request to member services. 1-bedroom villas are assigned in advance to ensure that 2-bedroom lockoff villas are available when needed. I make requests using specific room numbers, but general descriptions can be used (high/ground floor, pool/park view).

Normally we could care less about the pools since we have one but last night everyone(except I) voted to rent a cabana for a day so I guess that will be a new experience.

Hi everyone, we are going to Disneyland in July - it will be our first ever summer trip. We are staying at VGC. We are travelling with an 8-week-old for the first time and are adjusting our typical vacation plans accordingly. So I have two questions for y'all:

1. Because we're needing to have a more relaxed trip we are thinking of renting a pool cabana. Does anyone know if we can do this ahead of time? and if so who should I contact? The hotel concierge?

2. Our baby LOVES our rocking chair and I am trying to remember whether I've previously seen rocking chairs somewhere in the GCH lobby or if I am just imagining it . . . If she's fussy it would be nice to be able try and use those if I'm desperate.

I'm crossing my fingers for a smooth trip with baby!

thanks!

We rented a pool cabana last year - it was awesome. I had vacation planning do it because they were also doing some other reservations for us. But you can call the hotel concierge directly and book it. They take bookings at 10 days prior.

Rocking Chairs - if they had them it would be in the fireplace area - just can really recall if they are there. Hopefully someone else has noticed.

Have a great time.

Bunk Bed Rooms with Park View

Wondering if there are bunk bed rooms with Park View? If there are...any suggestions on bunk bed rooms with a good view? We'll be celebrating my son's 4th birthday and hope to be able to request a "magical" room

There are wonderful Rocking Chairs in the Fireplace area where we have spent many relaxing happy hours. The piano player is often there playing lovely music which also might be soothing for the baby.

Hope you have a great trip!

Yes there are bunk rooms with a Pier view, my cousins family had one last year on the 4th floor (the new wing). Let them know it is his birthday and he would love a park view in the new wing and see what happens, it also helps to check in early because they can almost always change the room location if your early. Have fun, we are here now for a few weeks and celebrating my daughters 4th birthday too. OFF to the park!!!

We always use Vacation Planning, so much easier.

jack was your party at the pool cabana closest to the lobby today? I was looking for somewhere to put towels and clothes down because the pool was so crowded today. I thought it was crowded when we came back from the park for a siesta at 2:00pm but it was even more crowded at 4:00 pm.

We do not get to the parks until 7/31 and we have a cabana rented for 8/3. It will be interesting.

We just returned from a 5-night stay at the GCH, and I *LOVE* that hotel for the convenience! We had faxed the resort a few days prior requesting a standard room over the entryway (which we had heard was larger), and they gave us one. Holy cow, it was HUGE! Easily as big as our room at the Polynesian at WDW (and that's a big room). Room 4105, two queens and a daybed, super-cold fridge (no problem freezing water bottles in the small freezer compartment), and a nice view of the front of the GCH, with DLH and PPH in the background. I wasn't overwhelmed by Whitewater Snacks, but one tip I can give is if you eat there with your family and you want to drink milk, the 1/2 gallon jug is a MUCH better deal than buying the individual pints (they have cups). We did enjoy the chicken nachos there, but breakfast was not great.

Oh, and my DH found $70 in the washing machine, so that made him extremely happy! lol
