Hi all.

Are water shoes permitted IN the pool?

That is a relief! I am getting a bit paranoid about renovations at hotels after a couple of nasty experiences.

One less thing to worry about!
You're welcome .

I'm sorry you've had bad experiences with construction in the past, but your GF stay should be construction free .

That's a good question . I don't see why not, but that's just my opinion as I can't answer for sure. Hopefully someone else will be able to give a definite anwer .

When my kids were younger, they did wear water shoes in the pool. That was about 7-8 years ago.

Does anyone know if rooms have new mattresses?

We wear them every year and have never had a problem.

They are allowed in pools, but not sure about water slide? I know at the water parks they ask you to remove them.

Hello, Grand friends! Sorry I've been out of touch for so long, it has been a busy spring in my house. I'll try to get back into posting mode!

Has anyone purchased any of the old GF decor? I meant to look for something - lamp, etc. - but forgot.

Hope everyone is having a good time with their planning and/or trips! I'm so behind. BlueSkies, if you are still in the World, I hope you are having a very magical vacation!

Welcome back....you have been missed around here . I know how it is sometimes when things get so busy you don't have much time for anything, let along computer time. I hope things are settling down and you have more down time for yourself .

You're welcome (although I wasn't too much help as I couldn't give a definitive answer....LOL).

I haven't seen this asked before so here it goes.

My mom has only been onsite at Disney once at CSR in 2010.

I asked her if she wanted to go on a trip with me and she said yes. I think GF is the best option for her tastes. I also want to do CL.

Here's the question. If you or a member in your party smokes is it easier/more convenient at SL or RPC?

We will probably do November or early December to see Christmas lights so weather should be decent. We live up north so it will be warm to us.

Thanks!

Good to see you back K&A&C's mom

Dd and I had a great time at poly and spent a lot of time at gf. That girl loves to shop in Summer Lace. Have to say the lounge chairs with cushions at GF are better than Cr and Poly!

So happy to hear your trip was wonderful!! Your comment regarding Christmas lights reminded me to ask how long the GF Christmas decorations remain each year. It would be interesting to see the GF decorations if they are still around when we arrive on January 5 (or maybe earlier, but for now, it's January 5!)

Last year our trip was 1/1-1-8. Lights and gingerbread house came down before we left GF on 1/5. Lights were down at CR when we arrived there on 1/5.

For parks I think they were up until that Sunday 1/5.

The Osborne lights were up I believe until the 5th too. We saw them on the 4th.

This year sunday falls on 1/4 so unfortunately you will probably miss them

SL lounge refurb?

Hello! Anyone staying SL soon, or just back, be sure to let us in on what you know regarding possible lounge expansion while they are refurbishing SL this month! It's already the 9th, I wonder what they are working on ???

I didn't get too much info but that there will just be one desk with a CM, and one of the CMs will stand at a podium near the entryway to the lounge. And I believe the kids' area is to be moved into the "large" (I use the term loosely as compared to the RPC lounge... ) room. I don't see how this is gonna work!

We've stayed several times in a lagoon view room and love conch key building ... It's near the boat dock and a view of the lagoon and magic kingdom castle (( love )) with our family of 5 we once got a corner room with 2 balconies. One balcony faced the marina and the other the lagoon and MK. I say just choose conch key building on your requests because I think you'll have a better chance of both the lagoon view and MK view over other buildings : )

glad to see you back! You were such a help last year with our first stay at GF! Loved it so much, returning this Aug for 14 nights . Was orig booked at Poly, but construction was getting a bit much, so switched to GF. Can't wait to be back!
