    We just stayed in GF LV room over Thanksgiving and LOVED it!! We could've stayed on our balcony all day long. No people traffic, only water, boats, and MK.

    Boca Chica room 8203, booked as LV:

    Me too! One of the best views we've ever had in Disney. Poly TPV is of course right up there too!

    Sago close to main building and transportation but farthest from pools.

    BPK is good for pools and main building.

    However none are really that far anyways so relax and enjoy researching !

    One more question have all the rooms been redone? And are the beds very comfy? I thought the Poly bed was a little too hard for my back.

    Our beds (in Big Pine Key) were very comfortable and quite soft. The room was not redone, however, as far as I could tell. It was pretty dated and felt like an old-school holiday inn or similar. It’s not a luxury hotel inside the rooms by any stretch.

    I have done a split stay starting from poly to gf . Gf beds are softer:)


    I love the decor. The wall paper on the wall behind the beds, the pretty carpeting, the gorgeous drapes..... rooms were new summer 2014.

    Our Holiday Inn's don't look like that up here in NY lol.

    I was there for NYE and with the temps in the 80's I wore shorts 7am to midnight without needing a sweater.

    However looks like Tues -WED only 60's. I would wear capris or pants in the morning when its the coldest. Midday I wear shorts for that temp cause I live in NY but would need a sweater. At night again gonna need some layers.

    MK and AK tend to feel warm but Epcot gets really chilly with the lake so I usually wear more there.

    I swear I bring it all because the numbers don't always reflect the temp. All depends on wind and humidity.

    SO bring layers lol and as much as you can.

    Looks really nice tho for Thurs and Friday ,sunny and 70's! Good Pool Days!

    Gotta love no rain!!!

    I went in January in 2016 and never wore shorts but I don't remember the temps. I wore capris and sweaters and also never went in the pool and didn't really see anyone either, just a few crazy kiddies. I guess I am going to need my largest luggage...:rotfl2:

    How long are staying for? The weather the following week looks good too with the exception of Sunday but its too early to tell.
