    Ooh, I do like the refreshed cabanas. The fruit and water are always nice. But, are they various amenities on the fridge top? I don't recall them with the pre-hurricane cabana days. We must book one for our May stay!

    Time runs slow until you get to Disney then flies by!

    On top of the fridge was condiments if you ordered food and paper cups for drinks. Also containers of sunscreen, after sun lotion and face sunscreen.

    Sunrise from our room:

    I wanted to mention this morning the Christmas garland is up at Magic Kingdom. Didn’t get a picture because I was so surprised! MKday tomorrow so I’ll post some after. You can smell the gingerbread cooking in the GF main lobby and Contemporary has their house half up.

    Merry Christmas!

    I was curious if they started on the Gingerbread House at GF yet, you might see them get going on it.

    Oh, this is such a wonderful time of year at the GF. It wouldn't be the same without the gingerbread house and the beautiful tree.

    Okay, I'll admit it. I only came by to yell at the top of my lungs,

    '180 days' !!! party:

    Thank you.

    Excited to say we booked a short trip in February with our DGD age 3 to stay in RPC :banana: First time ever for CL so excited to see what the fuss is all about :flower1: We stayed in Conch Key Aug 2017 and fell in love with the GF. My sweet little princess loves her some It's a Small World, all things Minnie, and Happily Ever After so you know where we'll be. Watching this thread for pics and any latest news from the GF :magnify:

    Happy Friday everyone:cheer2:

    DH & I will be checking into the Grand next Friday:yay: (it's a work conference for DH or we'd never be able to afford it) & are sooo excited! Our usual resort is the BWI, we love the convenience of walking to 2 parks & I've read here that getting to Epcot (our favorite) from GF isn't so easy. So I know you can walk from the GF to the Poly & from the Poly to the TTC but about how long would it take to walk to the TTC (to catch the Epcot monorail) from the GF? We're good, fast walkers & prefer walking to any other mode of transportation (even at home). Thanks guys!!! Again, we are sooooo excited to be staying at the Grand:cool1:

    20ish minutes or so if you’re brisk walkers.

    There are 4 full amenities cabanas at the Beach Pool and several “premium” seating chairs/couches around the Beach, Courtyard and Kids Splash areas. I never inquired about the premium seating so no idea of the cost.
