    I'm sure everyone knows by now, but I thought I'd post anyway.... Disney Visa released the cardholder spring discount for packages up to June 14.

    here's the link if anyone needs to see if it might help you...
    http://disneyrewards.com/offers (hopefully it's okay to post this) Save up to 30% at select Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels for stays most nights 2/18 - 3/23/2013 and 4/2 - 6/14/2013. :yay:

    I hope helps someone! After staying on the phone for 3 hours on hold, I finally got through and saved $ 909 on our trip. So it was really worth waiting for!! :yay:

    Keep your fingers crossed for March, 2013 for pool opening! We won't be there until July. Hope it's open for all of you going in the spring.

    Can anyone guess as to whether or not the courtyard pool will be open by the end of April? We are scheduled to arrive at the GF on April 29, and it sure would be nice to have it ready to use!

    Edited to add..I changed over from WL and have not changed the ticker!

    Hi, I am so glad that I stumbled across the DisBoards and this thread. I have taken the past two days to go through the entire thread and boy am I overwhelmed and over joyed all at the same time.

    We are looking to book the GF for this summer in either a garden view room or a club level room - outer building? We have not booked yet but we are hoping to do so within a week or two. Not sure if club level would be worth the extra money for us or not. Instead of club level, we might put that extra money toward a fire works cruise and those little white boat rental's. Lots to think about. But good things to think about!!

    I’m very sad to let you know that JungleCrusier, Sarah, has passed. To those of you who came to know this lovely, funny, caring woman, you know how much she lived for her Disney trips and how much she loved the Grand Floridian.

    If you would like to, please visit this link to share your memories and thoughts of Sarah, which will be shared with her family. God bless.

    :hug: Sarah was a dear friend to me and to many others and we all know how much she loved the GF - it was her home away from home. For those wishing to make a donation in her memory, her family designated a charity, The Valerie Fund. This was posted on the commmunity thread started in her memory, but decided to post it here as well to reach as many as possible that knew Sarah. The Valerie Fund Children's Centers provide treatment and medical services to children with cancer and blood disorders.

    Thank you all for your expressions of comfort. I know this means so much to the family at this time. God bless you all. :hug:

    My prayers are with her family. What a terribly sad thing. I remember seeing so many of her posts, and while I wasn't as interactive with her as some of you were, I enjoyed reading her posts. What a terrible loss.
