I'm a GF lover, but certainly no expert (yet)! So I have a question: are there any Queen deluxe TPV rooms in RPC?

DD is 14 1/2 and, given the option of a vacation in lieu of a big Sweet 16 party, wants to take her BFF with us for that special trip when the time comes. I want to stay RPC and will need the extra space, but would love to see Wishes from the balcony (that RPC TPV surprise upgrade in 2011 has spoiled me for good!)...so, anyone know if there are any?

Oh, and pas130 says Hello! It's too hard for her to come over and "visit" because the urge to change is just too strong.

I thought it was interesting because the GF room refurbs aren't rumored to be until next year.
It wasn't all of the rooms- ours had the white duvet but other rooms in the same building did not- they still had floral bedspreads. Nothing else in our room seemed new or refurbed to us.

Glad you got the right description in the confirmation, yay! I know what you mean about online vs. phone, I've had that experience in the past and had to say, "but I can see it online!"
Thanks for the pic....that is my favorite view .

I kept telling the CM I was seeing the opposite online and she couldn't understand why either....very strange.

And some photos from johnsonet, too.
Glad you found them....thanks .

We had a GV room in Big Pine Key and I found it to be quiet.

Hi to pas . Too funny about wanting to possibly make a resort change if she came over here .

After looking at both sets of pics, it looks like johnsonet's are the "wider" room and minniesota's are the "triangular". I like the wider room, but don't care for how the triangular one is laid out. If I wanted to request the wider type, would it be best to call CRO and have it noted on our reservation or contact IPO and have it noted that way (or do both)?

Funny thing is, we are GF vets! We have stayed almost exclusively at the GF since DD's first trip in 2002, but we've always booked GV, or more recently TPV, and we don't know anything about deluxe rooms. RPC was a one-time surprise upgrade, so we know very little except what we experienced, which was awesome.

So, any experts know if there are any RPC TPV queen deluxe rooms? My fingers and toes are crossed!

Unfortunately, no queen deluxe TPV. All of the rooms overlooking the marina (TPV category) are regular sized rooms, even the kings on the 2nd floor and booked as "king deluxe"! They are booked as deluxe because of the jacuzzi tub, etc. but are basically the same size as the std. room.

The deluxe queen rooms on the 4th floor, over the courtyard, can see some of the upper fireworks - but nowhere near the whole show, unfortunately. But the amount of extra room is worth it, IMO, those rooms go quickly!

I usually suggest Sago Cay for anyone hoping for a quiet room, if you check out the map in the first post on page 1, you can see it is removed from the main courtyard area. We prefer to NOT have Sago, as it was a little too quiet for us, but we love being in the midst of the activity.

Give pas my love, I need to pop into the RC thread to say hey. I rarely venture out of my own little corner of the DIS.

Ooh, interesting! I wonder if it is as I surmised - the bedspreads that get worn or stained are now being replaced by the duvets, in anticipation of the upcoming refurb.

Actually, both rooms are the Option 2, or triangular rooms. It's probably difficult to tell, as they were taken from different angles. Here are a couple photos of our deluxe queen room, over the courtyard - I can't remember for sure, but I think it was 4419. (the 4 over the courtyard are 4319/4320 and 4419/4420, they are connecting rooms so mirror images)

Thanks k&a&c'smom - darn it...the extra space will be more important, I agree. Two 16-year-old girls with us? I'd get 2 rooms if I could, but that would break the bank, I think!

Oh, man! I feel your pain, I planned a trip a few years ago that included my DD, her college roommate, my DS and his fiance. Two rooms in club was a bit steep, even booking SL! Fortunately for my wallet, my DS and his fiance decided they couldn't take off work that week. (not that I didn't want them to come, but it made the planning easier! )

I have had 3 stays at the GF and while I know a little bit about the resort and standard rooms, I know nothing about the deluxe rooms .

I never would have guessed they were both triangular as johnsonet's looks very different. I'm liking these pics you posted. Are these 4 over the courtyard considered wide?

I missed this part of the post in all my picture-hunting and -posting mode! I meant to say earlier, you are as much a GF expert as any of us. I've stayed many times, in all buildings and pretty much every category, but I still learn new things every day and don't consider myself an expert by any means. Always something new to learn!

Some people might describe them as "wide", I suppose, they are certainly wider than the standard rooms. I usually call them the "rectangular" deluxe queen, or Option 1 if you are looking at the layout diagrams. Tons of room, you can add a rollaway near the connecting door and still have all that sitting room area. I think Lulu's photos from the first page show that better. There's no daybed, btw, not sure if CRO mentioned that? Comfy couch and chairs, table, desk & desk chair, wet bar area.~sigh~ Love those rooms, I'm so envious you grabbed one with the discount.

I can't tell for sure from her photos, but it's possible johnsonet's room was on the other end of the hallway, closer to the monorail, near deluxe kings 4030 et al. As has been posted, those two triangular rooms were deluxe queens but were made into std. king rooms. Similar layout, but probably backwards (mirror) of the rooms on the end near the courtyard - 3022 & 4022. Does that make sense, or did I confuse further?

Because of the many roof lines and shapes of exterior walls, the GF has some of the strangest-shaped rooms! We've seen a lot of odd room configurations; I had a std. queen over the courtyard that you enter from a small hallway with two room doors on either side. I'll see if I have some photos without people in them, it's pretty cool.

We loved the shops, too! It may be our new favorite! Our kids thought the character bf at Park Fare was so much fun. The characters were very engaging.

I had been unsure of booking GF after we stayed at the Boardwalk last spring and posted a question on this board asking how the resorts compared. Boardwalk Inn was very nice but not our favorite. I was worried that GF would have a similar feel to Boardwalk. They were very, very different from each other aside from similar décor----and we loved our stay at the GF and will stay again! I would like to thank all who responded to my questions. I know it is difficult to try to answer as to whether or not someone will like a particular hotel but many of you took the time to answer my concerns.

The resort monorail was down for some of our trip between 11a and 6p which proved to be inconvenient for dining options and getting back from Epcot. The courtyard pool was down for a few days too. The beach pool was very nice and not very crowded most of the time, and my little guy loved the water feature/ splash play area.
Glad that you enjoyed your stay at the GF.. Interesting about the duvets...they have to look so much better than those comforters from the last rehab...Thanks for the review too!

I tried to get my oldest to agree to BWI, but it wasn't happening without good CS options ...so the MK area it is. The CR wasn't available for our dates (we'll try that next December and with the Poly pool closing April-August (construction wouldn't be an issue, but the pool being closed is a deal breaker for us), that leaves the GF (but that's not a bad thing......LOL). My intention was to book a standard RPC room, but the only thing available under the discount was a deluxe room, so I booked it. I'm not familiar with the deluxe rooms and was wondering where they are located? Also, are any deluxe rooms close to the lounge? TIA for any information .
MickeyNut sorry that you had to move your trip back...but glad that you will be able to take it next winter...

Glad that you are getting TO utilize the new promo and get in a spring visit to WDW!! I have stayed in the deluxe queen rooms...They are very nice..just be aware they do not have a day bed..The sofa does not open up to a bed either Which makes no sense..LOL.. The room is so spacious tho you could add a rollaway if necessary for your boys.. LOl...

I didn't realize that there were any queen deluxes other than the 4 that are courtyard view rooms...Those are located right above the back entrance to the main building...and have a great view ...

Those room numbers are 4319 and 4320..third floor..and 4419 and 4420 on the fourth floor...

4420 is the very first room off the lounge area...can't get any closer...! They really are very nice rooms..and I think that you will enjoy the extra space...

I think it will be super convenient, especially in August since we will spend a lot of time at the pool.

I also like how close Sugarloaf is to the main building.
Welcome back Mousemommy!! You are going to love your stay in SL...as you said..It couldn't be more conveniently located on the GF grounds!

I want to stay RPC and will need the extra space, but would love to see Wishes from the balcony (that RPC TPV surprise upgrade in 2011 has spoiled me for good!)...so, anyone know if there are any?
No expert here either...but another GF fan! ..we have stayed in some of the queen deluxe rooms... None have a TPV to the best of my knowledge...the ones that we have stayed in have had a view of the courtyard pool..and they did have a very nice view of Wishes from

I think that the building that is probably the quietest...and a little bit more removed from the hustle and bustle is Sago Cay..it has a great MK view..and the GV's are of the marina and a nice wooded area that has monorail views too!

Hope that you will keep us posted!
