Thank you everyone for such kind wishes about DD. She is slowly getting better, getting her to drink fluids is a battle but she is a stubborn 7 year old.

On a happier note first thing this morning I booked a week at VGF in a studio for next October. When I asked DH if he wanted to stay somewhere else he laughed at me and said "of course not, the Grand is perfect."

I know, I know...my complaints about our weather sound a little whiny. We should be glad we don't have any snow or sleet or ice in the forecast. (we tend to get more ice than snow in the last decade or so)
It's raining here now and the temps are supposed to drop as the afternoon goes on, with the rain changing to snow . My DS can't wait to see those flakes because he wants to get out on his snowmobile .

Dang! It's Spring here and WE are not getting 84 and sunny today. Actually, it's been like this all season - grey, damp, windy and chilly. What we all need is a little GF pixie dust... and 84 degrees!

We have never been to ESPN Club but I may need to go check out that menu

I'd give anything for those temps ......we're in the low 40s with it dropping as the day goes on when the rain turns to snow .
Excuse my blond roots(that have turned grey).....but what is NWI? Northern Wisconsin? or WI? We are actually in a suburb of Milwaukee to the west called Delafield.

Ugh...had to scrape ice off my car windows when I left work today

HAHAHA Northwest Indiana makes sense! I just kept thinking....something didn't make sense cuz North WI is not near Chicago burbs...lol....but NW Indiana sure is Those darn acronyms can get so confusing when they have multiple meanings. No offense, but I hate traveling through Indiana in snow and ice because the road conditions, in my experience, were just awful. As soon as we would cross the line into IL the roads were instantly better. What's up with that? Is it my bad luck?

Nice pics!! Are you in Big Pine Key? If so, this is the building we are requesting and I am curious what kind of noise, if any, you get from the movies on the beach if you are on the lagoon view side. Thanks, hope you're having a great trip!

Just left GFV this morning, after years of wanting to stay at the GF we were not disappointed. We had a 6th floor deluxe studio room 1605 and it was amazing! Had a view of the entrance fountain, monorail and pool to the right.

I love the Grand! Can't wait to check in next month. Has anyone ever stayed in a room with a lagoon view? How far a walk is to the monorail and main lobby?
