We had an amazing honeymoon at Grand Floridian in 2011, now I am super excited to be returning with the whole family in a 2-bedroom villa Oct. 31-Nov.6. Can't wait to stay in the new building!

Me too! It is a pretty white enamel pin...a 15th too...now adding the 25th to the collection!



Thanks for your review and tips too! Glad that you enjoyed SL..and made the most of the lounge offerings! They used to have individual 8oz water bottles..but did away with them quite some time ago..We miss having them available too...
Just as an FYI, the Epcot resorts do provide 20 oz. bottles of water to take to the parks. It would be nice if the GF did the same.

I remember the beer was Sam Adams and Heineken. I'll search my pictures to see if I have photos of the wine bottles.

Fastpass+ ???

HI !!!
I have a GF stay coming up at the end of August... SO EXCITED.
I was wondering if GF guests are able to participate in the Fastpass+ trial. If so, do you find out when you check in at the desk? Anyone out there lucky enough to have tried it?

Glad you had a great stay . I hope you are able to get back to the GF again soon.

Found a picture of a bottle of wine. It is Mirassou. It is a red wine. Also available are white wines and blush wines. Champagne was available too last year.

Sugarloaf served Champagne every day. Last week I overheard one CM mention that you can ask for champagne in the mornings for mimosas, too!

I skipped the champagne each day because it tends to give me a headache, add in the extreme heat- not a good combo! I did however enjoy a glass or 2 of chardonnay each evening! They also had a pinot noir and a blush/zin.

The beer selections were Yuengling light, Heineken, Bud Light, Sam Adams Summer Ale, Mich Ultra.

We did not get to participate in the trial but we did see another family on the monorail with their wrist bands on. I really wanted to try it- they seem so much easier than pulling out those cards to enter the parks and pay for stuff.

It sounds enchanting to honeymoon at the Grand. I will be in a one bedroom in Dec. and Jan. for a week each time. I've been told we will be able to see the Bride and Groom in Cinderella's horse drawn carriage because the villas are so close to the wedding pavilion.

Thanks, those selections sound fine . A good Pinot Noir sould be a nice "lounge on the balcony and enjoy the view" refreshment !!!
Yueng light should be fine, maybe Heine light ?.........I prefer Mexican lighter beer. I wonder if they could get Corona or something similiar if you ask.......I believe they sell Corona in Mizners, so it is on property . I may try to ask for it and see what happens.

Thanks !

We're on the way down to spend the 4th at the Grand. We stopped today to go to the beach and spend the night in St Augustine, and I just broke a nail darn it! I looked on the Senses website and did see that they do gel polish, but nothing about actual gel nails. Anybody have a clue if I may be able to get it fixed there?
