    I have reservations for 4 at the GF Spa for our 2 kids (12 & 7 manicure/ pedicure) and massages for DH & I, for the middle of our trip to WDW.

    I'm a little concerned now, because when I made some changes to the reservation, and discussed some things with the receptionist, I have to say, she was very...snooty. I'm a little afraid! Plus, that's a lot of money!

    Anyway, will I be dealing with very high-classed snobs here? :confused3 Should I go somewhere else for our very needed massages? :confused3

    Only 2 weeks to go!!!!!! :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

    NOt snooty IMHO, but here's an option:

    As far as the manicures/pedicures go, call Fingers and Toes on the Go, TC comes right to yoru room and charges about 1/4 what the GF Spa does for the same treatment. 352.255.2915

    Then perhaps book massages one at a time for you and your DH so that one of you can be with your daughters while the other is off relaxing for a morning getting a treatment.

    I've had some issues with the front desk check-in, however, the attitude stops at the door. The therapists there were amazing. My DD (8) got a bit bored, while I wanted to spend hours just soaking in the sauna and whirlpool. We both enjoyed our massages, and she had a My First Manicure, complete with little hidden mickeys. We had a wonderful time.

    we were just there last week and they were really nice....front desk and therapists....
    we walked in without an appointment on the chance they'd have time for my daughter who wanted a manicure/pericure (she's 21)...
    they had time right away for one but not both, so she opted for the pedicure..
    she said it was absolutely spectacular.....i waited for her in the women's lounge (the receptionist showed me back to it and said i could make myself comfortable and wait for my daughter there)...
    i didn't feel at all uncomfortable...
    and the spa was very nice and i look forward to going back and indulging myself as well next time....

    Thanks all! Liz, your suggestion sounds absolutely heavenly! I'll be looking into it asap! We truely appreciate WDW for its efforts in service and attention to detail. I'd hate to think we'd be let down by scheduling these massages at GF.

    CAN IT BE! :earseek: 14 DAYS TO GO!!!! :jumping1:

    I would like to get my DH and I massages while our kids are on the pirate adventure from the GF. I can't make that ressie until 90 days prior. Since I'm not sure which date I get, I won't know which day to get the massage. How far in advance should you book a spa service? :confused3 Also, does anyone know if they do a couples massage during the day? I downloaded the brochure and it said evening so I wasn't sure... I may take the other posts suggestion and keep the kids at the Poly's Neverland Club (we will be staying at the Poly) and do the massages at night and then get a drink at the GF with DH. :teeth:

    What is a very high classed snob anyway???

    She is answering the phone, you are the guest who is paying a lot of money for a luxurious service. Why are YOU intimidated?? If it were not for the guests booking services, she would be jobless receptionist.

    There is no such thing as a high classed snooty snob, it is just YOUR perception. Maybe she sees you (the guest) as a very high class snooty snob because you are spending what she earns in a month on spa services.

    See...all a state of mind.

    I keep trying to reach the Never Land Club at 407 824 2184 but am getting nothing! Is there another number for them? Also, when I make a reservation with them, do I have to be staying at Poly??? Or Disney?!?!?! And do I have to give them exact drop off/pick up times? (I'm getting so excited, I can barely stand it!) :rotfl:

    Unless something has changed, the WDW childcare services are limited to guests of WDW resorts. It's an insurance issue.
