Good Evening :wave:

Have some friends down there now and they posted this on FB, it's a pic of the new bedding.. Not sure if this is color palette is just temporary or if this will be permanent after the refurb.

Consider it done :goodvibes.

Yeah, that shipping option will get you every time because it leaves no reason to hold back on buying things :rotfl2:.
I'm afraid...very afraid!;)

I'd love to see that too!:yay:
I'm hopeful we'll see something - I've been reading on the DVC forums today. Guess it's a little too early.:teeth:

Thanks alot, Mickeynut! :hug: I'm doing great! There's nothing in my suitcase yet, but I told my sister I was going to start putting things in today. That'll make it seem closer...:cool1:
Always makes it seem real, doesn't it?!:goodvibes

26 more days until we are at THE GRAND!! Can't wait since it is our first time and celebrating my birthday. Now if I could be turning back the clock and be celebrating my 30th instead of my 50th then it would be an extra special celebration!!:lmao:
The suitcases are out but nothing is in them yet. But we are bursting with excitement!!:yay::yay::yay::yay:
It will be here before you know it!:cool1: Congrats on the upcoming milestone, when I turned 50 I felt like I had accomplished something.;)

'Eek!!!', was my first thought, too. It seems an odd choice if permanent.

I have quite a time to wait to see for myself, though. Tonight fortnight and it will be 180-day ADR time. Minutes are flying like hours. :)

    I don't hate it. I like it better than the bedspreads, but knowing there is a room refurb about to happen, I think the rest of the decor will probably change (furniture and stuff) to make the bedding really work. I'm thinking of that bubbly headboard at the villas...which I'm kind of undecided about...popcorn::

    Ya know I like Mickey black, I use it in my signature. But like K&A&C'S mom, yikes that does NOT go with the colors at GF :confused3

    I will be there soon and will let you know if CL rooms also made to look out of place.


    I am definitely packing a blanket just case triple sheeting:lmao:

    That was me on the owner thread asking about the blanket :). I have been on here and the owners thread and saw some ppl were going today. Thought I would try to get the scoop :). Of course today ended up crazy and I haven't been able to check boards until now. I know nothing :/

    What a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday :dance3:. You are going to love the GF :goodvibes.

    Wear your pin and have fun!:cool1:
    I agree ::yes::.

    Thank you and Yes I'll be wearing my pin.:goodvibes
    If I have to turn 50 then there's no better place to celebrate. And yes I absolutely feel 30 on the inside!!!:)

    Hi ahcupcake :)...hope things are going well with you :flower3:. Thanks for posting the bedding pics. I find it interesting that they're changing the bedding before doing the actual refurb :confused:.

    I agree.....black is not a color that goes with the GF :sad2:.

    Not sure if this is best place, but I am gonna ask anyway. We are 39 days from our stay at GF. 4th trip for me, but 1st at GF. This is our "once in a lifetime" trip. 3 daughters, so everything is expensive. Hence this being a once in a lifetime trip. My question is: I now have the ability to add room requests to my online check-in. What are the best options? I have booked only the standard room. Is there a better outer building? Is it better to have a higher or lower floor?

    Hi, Blue!! :wave2: Thanks for checking in...:goodvibes


    Trish, LOL on the VGF stalking! :rotfl: I guess a lot of us on here could be accused of that! :rotfl2: I sure hope we can visit inside the building when we are there soon.

    MrsJHenry, you're lucky to get to spend your "big" birthday at WDW! As mine occurs during the high season in spring, I have never celebrated with Mickey! Maybe one day...:goodvibes

    I have a question..are their ceiling fans in the room? I need air "moving" or at least the noise from a fan.

    We were in a hotel last weekend without one and it was creepy to me...lol
