Well after a couple of resort changes , we re-booked our original reservation at the Grand. There will be nine of us in two GV rooms. We have ressies at 1900 PF on our arrival night, an adult dinner at Citricos, and a spa treatment booked for my mom. I cannot wait to experience this resort- the grounds just look beautiful!!

Sounds lovely!!

I am considering a girls trip to the GF in July because of a super awesome deal my TA sent out...so I thought I'd drop by here and see what it's all about. We've stayed (DH, DS, and DD) at BC and Poly so far...

$209/night for one specific weekend. 3 nights. If you were already a subscriber to their newsletter. Hard to pass up!

Man, you guys are making me feel bad about my $365/night....but it is for CL in the Sugarloaf building....I guess it's still good...

If the TA offer included CL, I'd be tempted....but it doesn't....

You're welcome . I think Boca Chica is a great choice as there are no blocked views of the courtyard pool .

Glad you are back at the Grand. It really is an amazing resort and I think you'll have a great time and love the resort .

The GF is an awesome resort and is a great place for a girls trip . We've also stayed at the BC and Poly and while the Poly will probably always be my favorite, I do love the Grand. The BC was just ok and although it was nice being within walking distance to 2 parks, the MK area is our favorite.

We are in Boca Chica now lagoon view. So I know our noise level is louder but we are heavy sleepers and the fireworks/music at the MK has been waking us up. But hey that's the "magic" right!?

Yes I'll be there the first week in February, my trip will overlap with Blue's for a couple of the days. It would be great if you could be there too.

We stayed in a Boca Chica LV room a couple of years ago and loved waking up to the sounds of the MK welcome show out front several mornings. Best alarm ever!

I hope you do get some peaceful nights of sleep in there, though! Have a fantastic rest of your trip! We have requested Boca Chica again for our stay in 12 days!

We enjoyed that too, with our Boca Chica theme park view! And also, when we were upgraded to theme park view in Conch Key, being even closer to hear the sounds in the am made it just magical!
