    There is no indoor route to GG. You have to go outside, but there is a covered porch that goes alone the back of the main building, if it's raining you can stay dry.

    Hi Blue (and Wishes too!). Everything's fine....just don't post as often. I've missed seeing you post tho, when I pop in.
    So you have a late spring trip planned? All at the Grand? I booked a bounceback for early May but not sure we'll keep it. My sister may want to wait a bit, so I may move it.

    Gasparalla Grill is 24 hours. You can get something there without huge charges.

    Gotta walk outside. Most if not all of the way there is covered. Great for breakfast

    What GF ADRs are you making? I'm eating at the cafe, but wondering what you all are doing...

    Checked into the Villas today. Gorgeous! I know now we’ll be trying to stretch our BWV points to stay here again someday!

    Is there a small freezer compartment in the garden view rooms fridge? I have to bring a medication that I need to freeze an ice pack for to bring to the parks.

    Also, has anyone here gotten a crib from GF? Any pics? What are they like? I cant imagine my one year old sleeping in a pack and play for a week.

    I think Trishadono posted a pic of a crib she saw in the hall being delivered. I don’t recall the room fridges having a freezer compartment. But if you go to the front desk I believe they have arrange to have your pack frozen.

    We have grown to love doing more meals "on the fly" but find ourselves returning over and over again to Citricos (or Mizners during Citricos hours) to enjoy a light dinner made from their appetizers and that chocolate banana dessert :cloud9: it's nice to not need ADRs for that!


    The Villas are what got me hooked back on Disney as an adult. They are just sumptuous! Especially the 1 bedroom and up... I wish my kitchen at home was that nice! Or my bathroom... or, okay, can I just move in at the Grand?

    I just read the other day, on one of those re-sale sites, that there are going to be perks (some) again, even if you didn't purchase from Disney direct. You have to purchase at least 75 points to get some of the perks. This is a new thing, and I don't know when it will go into effect. Not sure if I'm allowed to say the DVC resale sight's name, but just thought I would pass on this information.

    You might have misread.

    You are now required to maintain a minimum of 75 DIRECT Points in order to receive the perks.

    You can check out this thread. This was just announced this morning...

    I love that dessert! We don't usually order dessert, but make an exception here. I didn't know we can get it at Mizners, so thanks for posting this.


    Agree! "Sumptuous" is the appropriate word. I also want that bed at home, though it makes it hard to get up in the morning.

    Can anyone else confirm if the refrigerators have a small freezer compartment at the top?
