As trishadono posted, the king deluxe rooms (main building) are different than the outer building deluxe rooms. There are links to photos of the outer bldg. deluxe rooms at the top of the "deluxe" post - other than the turret seating area, they are the same as a standard garden view room.

The king deluxe rooms have two types; the rectangular rooms over Gasparilla's have balconies with MK views and a Jacuzzi tub. The octagonal (or turret) rooms are larger with no balcony, but a large walk in closet and the garden tub you mentioned, and overlook either the courtyard or Beach Pool area.

HTH!

Well ladies, funny (sad?) story: we've been staying at the Grand almost exclusively since 2002, and we've made many happy memories there. So, I just got the chance to show DD the room refurb photos, and SHE STARTED CRYING...I felt so bad for her! She really hates the new decor, I mean REALLY hates it...14-year-old girl = mood swings and drama!

Seriously, though, I do feel for her and everyone else who is disappointed with the new decor. I still miss the royal blue and gold Alice theme from Conch Key...

Hopefully, by the time we get to go back, probably next fall, she will have had enough time to get used to it.

We are having nice weather this weekend, too . Temps were in the mid 50s today with more of the same tomorrow. I was actually able to wear flip flops and capris, so I'm hoping we start seeing more of these warmer temps in the weeks to come .

I'm sorry your DD doesn't like the new decor, but I can relate as I don't like it either . But, like many have said, the GF is still Grand as the grounds are beautiful and the atmosphere is very relaxing, so I hope your DD can still enjoy the GF on your next trip .

The M&C Imperial half isn't too high, not sure how many people will be sharing - it's a slightly sweeter sparkling wine, but a lot of people like it. The Fairy Tale Cuvee is nice, not sure of the mark up there.

If you want to make a bigger splash, I heartily recommend the Ruinart.
Thank you, thank you!! I search everywhere for a list like this and couldn't find it!! Of course you have it!!!!

Thanks for all the recommendations too!! She'll love any of those!!

Yes..there is no charge to have a roll away in the room...but..most regular rooms at the GF accomodate 5..and there are two queen beds along with a day bed...There is however a charge if there are more than 2 adults in a room...

MickeyNut I know that your flip flops are out...Has spring finally arrived!

Wishes Another thought about sending champagne to your friends..the Disney Florist has some very nice champagne..or wine packages..they will deliver to restaurants on property too...

grannyminnie Now that you have your new GF ressie what have you planned..Did you do your FPPs...and how about some dining...?? Its always about the food! Or are you just planning on being a lounge lizard..and relaxing more that running?? Inquiring mind..as usual...lol...

phyllis Maybe once you all see the newly refurbished rooms in person you and especially your DD will feel differently... I really wasnt a big fan of the most recent refurb prior to this current one..but it never detracted from my overall enjoyment our stays at the GF...

~ Just wanted to mention..at 60 days...in the wee hours of the morning no FPP for Anna and Elsa ...We are big Frozen fans.. and I foolishly mention to my DD that there was a meet and greet for them... she was excited about the prospect...lol...oh well...I see that they must be super popular...

Spring has finally arrived here... Its about time!

Hope that you are all having a super grand Sunday!

Did you try booking a FP for one person at a time for E&A? That worked for us when we weren't able to get one. Our times are about 5 minutes different but the overlap for 55 minutes. Sometimes that works!

So glad I just read this!! Thanks for the tip! :-). We have 6 people total, so maybe I'll try 2 at a time first and see what I can get. If not, the plan is to head there in standby the morning we have an 8:00 ADR with a 9:00 park opening.

I hope that you are successful! You could also try to get them for a later day in your trip - we are going to try for them early in the trip (for our July trip) and then just keep trying for each MK day we have planned. Maybe by the end of your trip, there will be one available! Although going straight there at RD would result in a pretty low wait I would think. :-) Good luck!

Mydd19 loved the pics of the new room but when I told her the volcano is getting taken out at poly she was

It's so sad when they lose their favorite thing. Then again if we didn't spoil them and take them to disney so often they wouldn't have that problem ....

You know me too well . I was actually able to wear capris and flip flops yesterday as the temps were in the high 50s . I haven't seen any forecasts for this week, but I hope spring is finally here as I have had it with these cold temps .

I'm sorry FPP didn't work out for Anna and Elsa.....I hope you have luck with doing them one at a time as Ferrentinos suggested .
