I didn't see anything for the birthday yesterday.

I don't know if anyone's posted this yet- the wall on the beach has come down! Well, most of it. It now starts right at the DVC construction, so the beach pool has a view of the lagoon again.

I can't wait to see the lagoon again while sitting at the pool! Thanks for the update.

Anyone going to GF from July 16 to 23 besides me? Pas130, are you still going?

DS and DD are pin collectors/traders. Did anyone see a pin for the 25th anniversary of the GF?

Glad you had a nice visit, thanks for the photo link. I plan to enjoy when I get a few minutes to really do them justice.

We have always paid at the end of services.

I don't have any info on the services for younger guests, have you checked out the website? I have links on the first page - photos and description on the Disney blog: Senses - A Disney Spa; and a link to the GF spa page of the WDW website.

HTH! If you click through the links on the website, it will pull up menus. I found this under the "Know Before You Go" section: Treatments have been specially designed for Guests ages 4-12 years.

Thanks for the update. I hope they have some kind of celebration for the anniversary tomorrow (can't imagine they would not!) and Wow! glad to hear the fence around the beach and pool are gone!
