Grand Floridian Theme Park view vs Club Level outer building?

Trying to decide between these two. Club level is only $20 more for the two nights. Also wondering if contemporary tower theme park view would be a better choice.

We've never stayed TPV, but have stayed outer building CL at the GF (SL) and although I didn't care for SL, I would probably stay there for just $20 more. I, personally, wouldn't spend money on a TPV at the GF.....I would go to the CR for that view, but that's just my opinion.

It really depends on if you want a view or concierge amenities. I agree - if you want view, go to CR. If you want concierge amenities, go GF CL.

I personally would pick CL over TPV because I happen to enjoy the service and the offerings in the lounge. Can see the castle by simply going to the park or going for a short walk at the resort.

I agree. I'd pick outer building club level which means Sugar Loaf.

We didn't care for Sugar Loaf but it could have been because the CMs we happened to have were in snotty moods. The food selection was ok. The cognac in the evening was fabulous .

We were just wrestling with this decision as well. We decided on Club Level since we can see the castle other times, but the Club level services are only available when staying club level.
