    Just about ready to book our trip. :cool1:Usually stay at AKL but wanted to try a different place with a little more room. Thinking about staying at GF. Was it worth your stay? We like the idea of being closer to MK. Is the theme park view worth the extra money too?

    We had also considered the WL with a bunk bed room. We checked into staying at CR or Poly but there were no rooms available.

    We always do several character meals at GF and think it is a beautiful resort.

    You'll love it. :thumbsup2

    As to whether or not TPV is worth it, I can't say for sure. The majority of our GF stays were in TPV rooms, but the garden views are very nice, too. You get a pool, marina, or monorail view - basicially, a resort view. We really enjoy the style of the resort so its nice to sit out on the balcony and people watch. TPV is usually near $100 a night more, so if you have the extra money go for it, but you won't necessarily giving up on the magic if you forgo it.

    Enjoy your stay! And don't forget to post on the GF thread once you return. :cool1:

    You will love the GF :goodvibes. Our favorite is the Poly, but we have had great stays at the GF. We don't usually pay for views so I can't comment on whether or not the TPV would be worth the extra cost, but IMO, you really can't go wrong at the GF as there aren't any bad views ;).
