When we were there in July the kids games were at the courtyard pool.

Oh! That would be even better since it's closer to Sugarloaf....but now I'm thinking I may want to request a marina side of Sugarloaf....because the other side might be loud?

We like our mid day naps.

When we were there in sept the kids games were at the beach pool. The courtyard pool was much much quieter then the beach pool. Both were great!

Yeah, some things came up that we decided to push our trip back. I rebooked our cruise for December 2014 and used the new RO discount that just came out to book a trip for March. December is right around the corner, but March isn't that far away and will be here before I know it . LOL on the paperchain.....reading that brought back some long ago memories .

I wish my oldest was more easy going......but he's adamant about his resort and having good CS options . We also love the MK area. We did enjoy our BC stay years ago and it was nice being so close to Epcot and DHS, but we don't love it like we do the MK area and resorts. I would like to try BWI and YC, but that doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon. Splits are a great way to try different resorts without taking separate trips to do it.

I've never been there and don't know what to say or ask for or request at checkin. I hope we are given a nice room but am clueless as to any requests.
You will be there before you know it .

If you get to your room and don't like it, you can go back to the front desk and request a different room. When we were there in December 2010, we were assigned a room with no daybed. I called from the room and politely asked if there was another room available with a daybed. Within 5 minutes we were moved to a room with a daybed. So all it takes is inquiring about a different room. If one is not available right away and you're willing to wait for it, Disney will accommodate you.

Speaking of food..cause its always about the food..and the QS options..cause I know thats important to your fellas.. Have you seen the refurbed Gasparillas yet?? Lots more seating...and much quieter now that the moved all of the games into a game room...
Yes it was.....I didn't realize we were on the phone for that long, but it was very nice catching up. I am very much looking forward to our stay next spring .

I have seen pics of the refurbed Gasparillas. I am so glad they took out those arcade games. That was one of the things we hated as those games took away a lot of seating and it was always very loud in there . I will definitely check it out when we're there in March.

This photo is from the club lounge in the main bldg. You can see Boca past the pool.
Love the pics.....makes me want to be there now .

I think the GF is an excellent choice.

If RPC is doable, that would be my choice.

Taken on the path around the pool, you can see Boca in the background

Standing on grassy lawn in front of Boca, you can see main bldg. in background

Still in front of Boca, turned so you can see Sugar Loaf on right and main bldg. in the center
The GF grounds are so beautiful .

I will most likely request non-dormer, marina view. Being a Poly transplant, I actually do NOT want to see the Poly from our room as I want to "feel the grand" vs "longing for the Poly" if you KWIM? now....If they want to upgrade me to TPV and I happen to see the Poly off to the side...that would be A-OK

We have always loved eating at the GF and admiring all the lovely landscaping. We are all excited to stay here.

Safe travels to those leaving soon
You are going to love the GF . I don't think there are any bad rooms/views, but you can always request a different room should you get assigned one that you don't like.

We booked our trip today! We will be at the GF 5/31-6/7. This will be my 3 nieces first trip to WDW and we are so excited to get to experience it with them! I am sure I will have lots of questions in the coming months- thanks for all the help so far

k&a&C'smom, I hadn't read anything about fencing only main pools but just the thing about fencing any new pool or one that has construction. Since WDW pools seem to be refurbished on a regular basis, that would indicate all of them to me. Of course, I have no idea if any of that info is accurate.

I hope you fit a trip in soon and that you enjoy the convenience of the Magic Bands when you try them.

It seems that the fence is permanent...



Hey there BCV Woohoo a few more days for you too!! Are you staying at the new villas?? Is there going to be another vacation club in your siggie!!?? LOL..Is there room??? Have a great trip...

I am right with you on SL...love it! Love both CLs ..

But.. not the fencing around the courtyard pool..You are right about the fact that it has a nice victorian look...disney is generally good about all of those details..fortunately for those of us who love the details!! LOL..but I thought that it looked so much grander before...
Great description of the previous seating in Sugar Loaf. I think the current seating is more functional but not as charming. What nice memories you have of your children playing games.

We are staying in the villas and can't wait. No, we haven't purchased VGF. We have quite a few points and are probably done buying points unless we sell some of our other contracts. I just wish the VGF and villas at the Polynesian (do they have a name yet?) were built earlier.

I love both club levels, too, but RPC are to me.

Hope you have a great trip, too.

I think they did a good job of making the new fence fit in with the whole themeing. Love the pool at night with the fountains.

We are booked at the GF in a TPV room July 19-26 but I think we are going to add another day since we decided to do the Universal trip at Easter instead of going right after we leave the GF.

Still nervous about the whole FP Plus/Magic Bands, but then again I'm a creature of habit and change is always hard for me.
Two WDW trips for you this year! I know you usually take a very long summer trip. Happy planning and thank you.

mickeynut1, Thanks for the good wishes. I'm sorry you needed to move your trip a bit but now you get to do more planning! Have fun.

So, what is everyone's favorite Sugarloaf view -- marina or courtyard? And why?

mickeynut - thanks about the photos!

It is hard to try new resorts when you want to stay at your old favorite, which is why we started doing split stays. New resort for a couple days first, then on to the one we love. Can't blame you for wanting to stick with the MK area, we love the whole MK aura.

I am the proud owner of THREE GF duffle bags...Yep..three! Purchased at different times to take home just a few things that I couldnt jam into the suitcase!!
Thanks for the SL details, I can't remember what set up they had on our first stay. I do remember a switch, it was during one of our trips - was that in 2007, when they did the major refurb? Your description of the kids playing board games made me smile, what a great memory to have.

LOL about the 3 duffle bags, I can so relate! I have 3 or 4 of the brightly colored shopping bags that you get in the gift shops for $6 or so; a WDW nylon tote with the stylised "Disney" on the front, middle DS carried that to school for years; a bunch of the canvas tote bags, especially love the first ones with the navy and royal blue handles and stripes; and, finally, two of the duffle bags they had as an upsell late last year-early this year! All this, after I said the other day I don't buy much at WDW.

Me, too, about the bands, I hope I like them. Will you still be at the BC this summer, too? I know you are usually there for a good long trip each year. Are you sure you want to move your US trip back, with the new HP section opening in June or July? We can't wait for the Hogwart's Express and Diagon Alley areas.

I talked with a lady today who had just returned from WDW, but had stayed off-property, and she felt that not having the MB to wear was a negative as far as how much her family got to do. It made her decide that next trip would be on the property.

....
I'll throw in my 2 cents on SL. We love it! Of course, RPC is the ultimate, but if it's out of the question, I don't think you can go wrong with SL!
You're welcome about the photos. Ooh, the lobby smell.~sigh~ Wish we had smell-o-vision, as my dad used to say.

Thanks for the update on the MB, I wondered if it would affect the experience not to have them. Sounds like I may be forced to get used to them, in the end.

I agree about RPC and SL; we love RPC, it is special, but we have no problem booking SL (if we can get it!) or even a garden view. We alternate with RPC, or club in general, for that matter.

When we were there in April, they were at the courtyard; obviously, still there through the summer. Sounds like they finally moved the games back to the themed pool in the last couple months. Good! Having a quiet courtyard area is better, IMO.

It sounds like they have moved them back to the Beach Pool, but I would email IPO and ask, just in case. That way, you can make your request without having to consider the pool noise.

Hey! We were posting at the same time, and many of the same comments.

Right after I posted I had read only the main pools would be fenced, I wrote that quote about FL law and fences on major refurbs! That would certainly indicate they will all eventually get a fence, wouldn't it?!

Thanks about the trip, and the MB - I'm sure I'll like them, once I get used to wearing them.

Can't wait for your VGF review.

Sorry, I can't be much help - I love both views! Love the view of the courtyard area and pool, as we enjoy the atmosphere. On the other hand, the marina views are so pretty and it is more peaceful. Can't go wrong, in my opinion.

Yes, you can see a portion of the monorail on the marina side. I've got some photos I'll post - more photos, lol.

More Photos!!!

Seeing the monorail sounds nice...but with that fountain function in the courtyard pool, I bet that's nice to look at at nighttime....

Can you request a monorail view?

SL marina view; we were in the very end room on the 2nd floor - end next to Conch Key. Other rooms have a less obstructed view, but we loved this! Mousemommy, I don't think you need to request a monorail view - if you have marina view, you will see it!

Looking left, you can see Sago Cay across the water

You can see the monorail through the trees

End of Conch Key and pathway along marina, back of boat house


View of courtyard pool, 5th floor Sugar Loaf (prior to 2013 refurb - kind of blurry, I resized)
(thanks, JungleCruiser!)

These photos are from a top floor room in Conch, but it gives you an idea of how easy it is to see the monorail from the marina view rooms. This room was on the end closest to SL, I'm pretty sure it was 7501.

Looking at marina, Gasparilla's

End of Sago Cay

Monorail

Looking right, monorail continues to MK

Isn't it so pretty?! Very hard to choose, which is why we are happy whichever view we get in SL. My biggest request is "non-dormer" and "non-connecting" rather than which view.
