There is a door between the shower and the vanity area, but not between the vanity and the room. The vanity area is off a short hall, but you can still hear the dryer from the beds.

I did not have a door between vanity and bed. I too was trying to dry my hair without waking dd. some days I was successful, others she woke up. I wonder if any resort has that without upgrading to a villa with one or more bedrooms..

Question Regarding room size

HI All!!
I am new to this section of disboards. I am getting married in November and I booked a room at the Grand Floridian for me and all my girls to get ready in. It is a Outerbuilding deluxe room. I was wondering if anyone has stayed in this particular room and do you think it's big enough to get my hair and make up done in this room with 8 other people. Apparently it has a balcony with 2 queen beds and sitting area. Under the outline of the room the lady sent me from Disney, It says BI Lodge Tower 2 queen beds.

I would greatly appreciate if anyone could give me some advice. I am kind of stressing about this situation!!!

Thanks so much
Rebecca

The regular rooms at the Contemporary Resort have a door to the bathroom area (sinks and shower/tub), with a inner door to the toilet. However, the CR also has the worst sink design in the world.

I was thinking the same thing, but I do not like the bathrooms at the CR since the remodel.

As a side, when we heard of the construction at the Grand while we would be there decided to stay somewhere else. I was thinking of going back to the CR, but decided against it because of the bathrooms ! lol

I have to know why it is so bad Speaking of sinks....At the GF the sink to the right had hardly any cold water pressure, but the sink to the left had tons...My bro and I were racing each other to use that sink...Yes, we still act like we are 5 around each other AND, does anyone else think the handles move in the wrong direction? Maybe it was just our room but I could not for the life of me remember to move it correctly. I did like how the sinks were slightly outward facing though. It gives you just a little more room...

Tom - when are you leaving?

Rebecca - Congrats!!! What a lovely place to get married! If you were in my room it would be way to crowded, but I was not in a deluxe room, so I can't really say. Good Luck, it will be beautiful!

I can't wait to see photos from those of you who will soon be visiting the Grand
LOL - I often misread posts and have to go back to catch the intent.

I'm waiting to see more photos of the construction, or any for that matter.

Saw a couple pics of the new splash area...looks neat.
We nearly always spend time at the Grand, even when staying in other resorts.

Check out post #8 on the first page - the very first photo is of the hallway leading to the beds, you can see the vanity area to the left. No doors, unfortunately for those who want to use the blow dryer while others sleep.

Nope. If you look at post #8 on the first page, you can see what we're talking about - I'm sure it will jog your memory.

Best wishes on your upcoming wedding.

I've never stayed in an outer building deluxe, but from photos I would say it will be a bit tight. Still, it could work. Check out this link from the 2010 FAQ - scroll down to post #25 for photos of the outer bldg. deluxe, posted by Little Lulu. These are of the Sugar Loaf deluxe (club level, not the BI room you are describing) and prior to the 2007 room renovations so you see the old decor - but it will still give you an idea of the size and layout. http://www.disboards.com/showthread....2427062&page=2

ETA: the sofa no longer folds out, for anyone wondering. You can get a rollaway, though.

We have had rooms where the sinks have varying degrees of water pressure, too. It seems to be random, not every room has this issue, but annoying when you get one. Funny about you and your brother racing to the "good" sink.

[QUOTE=jillmc40;46448605]Tom - when are you leaving?

Jill - in 6 LONNNNNNGGGGGG days! We just got our Halloween outfits on Saturday. Catherine is going to be Little Red Riding Hood and I am a Pirate of the Caribbean (imaginatinative, hunh?). I don't know how parents of girls deal with costumes. Catherine walked into the store and when the first person asked what she wanted to be "I'm little but I'm just turning 14 -- I don't want to be a bumblebee, but I don't want to be a ****!) Seriously, her Red Riding costume came with fishnets -- fortunately, because she isn't even 5', the length comes to her knees. But, these outfits are way to provocative for little girls.

Tom

Next year will be the first time since 2001 that we are driving down to FLA. Does anyone know what the nightly valet fee is? We have no desire to make the trek across the street to self parking. TIA
