Awesome new thread Christopher and wonderful pics Alison!

I'm so looking forward to our trip this month to see the resort in all it's holiday magic.

I just want to say that you did a great job on this new thread for VGC!

I am in awe at how quickly the old thread filled up. When I started it, I had just closed on my purchase as a founding member and wanted to celebrate that fact with others. Little did I know that the information shared on the thread would be among some of the most valuable tools used when planning my own vacations to VGC.

Thank you for creating this new thread and for everyone's participation in these threads. This online community has truly helped me enjoy my visits "home" more than I would have ever believed!

Thanks for creating this resource ...

We originally bought in June 2009, and after our last trip a month ago had to add on more points through resale because our friends had such a great time they want to join us every year from now on! (New points should close at the end of the month.) We were never able to afford staying at a Disneyland resort hotel before, and now we feel so spoiled but love it! Thanks for making this thread; its so neat to meet my fellow VGC owners virtually. =)

Stopher1 awesome job! It's great, please stay with us! One of the best decisions I've ever done is the VGC. Can't wait for our next trip, 12/30/10 - 1/2/11....Our very first New Year's experience at Disneyland. Did anyone notice that it's going to be 1/1/11 ?!

VONS Delivery 1 Day Prior to Arrival?

We'll be staying at the VGC from 11/25 to 11/28. I want to order groceries from VONS, however, they are closed and won't deliver on 11/25 and 11/26. Do you think VGC will allow me to have the groceries shipped on 11/24 and hold it for us until our room is ready the next day?

Well, managed to call the hotel, and the bell services manager said that they can hold it until our arrival. Woo hoo!

Glad I found this

Didn't realize we had a new thread. Darn that job for keeping me from reading the DIS...

Can't wait for our first stay as members October 2011. Just booked 5 nights last Tuesday.

We've never seen the GCH decked out for the holidays in person. Please take lots of pictures so we can post them here on our lovely thread!

Just got back this evening from a six night stay. This was our first stay in the villas since buying in back in July. Hotel is not decked out in holiday decor as of yet. Villa was clean and very nice except for the construction view and noise that started at 6:30 am. We rolled with it...not a biggie.

The one thing I could hardly believe is people leaving trash bags, trash and all sorts of debris in the hallways....I guess hoping the trash fairy is going to pick it up....is it really that hard to take out your trash....to the trash bin? This morning half the second floor wreaked of a trash smell from someone leaving it outside their room. Room service also was not good about retrieving the plates, etc. and wee saw a lot of dishes in the hallway too. It really took away the deluxe accommodations Aspect with the hallways being a mess...

Room service plates left in the hall has been an ongoing problem at the Grand. Guests could help the situation by calling room service when leaving carts or plates in the hall.

The irregular floorplan makes checking halls more work, but the hotel should check the halls at least once a night.

I think a lot of it is just plain laziness. There were food and drink plates right outside the second floor elevator and they were there for over two full days!
