Hello to all - currently spending my 2nd night at the GF, and hoping the bands of Katrina get their rain out overnight so we have the hopes for some sun tomorrow! Thus far, we've had a great stay. This is my 1st time at the GF, and it is living up to expectations quite nicely. We booked a GV room using the AP rate, and got pretty much all of my room requests (except that unspoken hope for an upgrade)! We are in Conch Key, in a 5th floor dormer room - we can see the lagoon, Contemporary, and the top of the WL/VWL from our balcony. For a GV room, I'm pleased with it. Room is in great shape, very clean. I'd almost say that the bedspreads might be brand new - or else they just keep them in impeccable shape. I'm not nearly as grossed out at the thought of hotel comforters with these! Staff has been very accomodating and friendly - my mom made the comment that she had just assumed they would be a bit snooty, but they're not at all. If you have any questions, feel free to ask (and I'll do my best to answer). As far as the resort goes, no pool time yet, but we did have afternoon tea today at the Garden View Lounge, and ate dinner for my b-day tonight at Narcoossee's. Both were delicious!
