Holiday update

They started putting the gingerbread on the house this morning at 10:30, making good progress! They should be done with the gingerbread tomorrow, then will do the landscaping, etc. the store inside will open Monday morning

Last night they started hauling everything in for the tree and other decorations around 9:30. I stayed up watching til after midnight, peeked outside around 5:00 am and they were still working. We left our room at 7:30 & it was all done!

Pool update

There has not been much action on the pool this week, only one or two people working every now & then when I check. The CM who checked us in said it would be February before it is done?!? I almost blurted out Noooo, the dis says December, lol! Hopefully she is wrong.

She also said Sandy's should open this Saturday.

Turret rooms

Hi,

Someone on the club level forum mentioned how the turret rooms gave her a lot of extra space, do they still have these and how many do they sleep? Are these upper level rooms? We have stayed at the GF before but didn't realize these existed.


Thanks in advance for your help, I really appreciate it!

Hi there, I assume you mean in the Outer Lodge Club Level? There are three of these turret rooms in Sugar Loaf (floors 2, 3, and 4). The rooms on floors 2 & 3 have a balcony, but the one on floor 4 does not (due to the exterior & service room). Bedding is 2 queens only, no daybed. There is a sofa (love seat size) in the turret but it does not pull out. You also get an extra tv in the turret area. Hope that helps! If you are looking for info on the regular turret rooms (Outer Lodge - Deluxe Room - Garden View) let me know.

Yes, the gingerbread house is actually a little store. The have gingerbread men and gingerbread snowflake ornaments among others items. Some we get to eat and some we actually save as ornaments.

Thank you so much CaliforniaDreaming that was exactly the information I have been looking for!! I really appreciate it . Do you think they would allow a rollaway,I'm thinking yes because last year we were put in a room without a daybed and they didn't have any more rooms available with a daybed so they brought us a rollaway. Are these pretty popular rooms to request? Thanks again!!!!

My DH , DS and I have a reservation for Deluxe King, RPC beginning 11/27-12-02. I was a bit skeptical about 3 in this room category but the CM did not seem to think it a problem. Will there be a day bed in this room? I know my son will not want to sleep on a roll away.
