Those who have stayed on the first floor of any of these resorts, is it noisy and do you really have privacy? I would love to try but these 2 things have stopped me. Getting a bad case of arthiritis in my knees and so I really don't care to walk up the stairs.
This is really a great idea for a site!!! I have wanted to try some other places. This gives me an idea of what to expect. Thanks!!!!

Generally I always ask for a top floor room so I don't have anyone above me. At the WDW resrots that I have stayed at the lower or first floor rooms have been pretty quiet. As far as deluxe resorts with balconies the privacy thing is not an issue other than you can be in a location where there is a bit more traffic walking by and yes they could see into your room if you keep the curtains open. As far as how busy it is outside you room it depends on the location of the room . I prefer to be farhter away from stairs and elevators at the ends of wings because then there is less traffic going by the walkways whether they are inside or outside corridors. At the YC we had a room close to the lobby down a short halway that didn't have a lot of rooms. We were at the end of a very short hall that ended in a suite. We were next to the suite on the first floor. There was no trafiic outside our room. Outside the balcony was a little garden and a huge expanse of grass so no one ever walked by. It was great.

The Grand Floridian has many suites—some in the main building and some in the various lodge buildings. There is only one “Everglades suite”, but there are several other suites of various sizes and price ranges. If I had my dream, I would spend a night in the Walt Disney suite.

Yes-there are many suites at the GF. The one we stayed in is unique in that it has the patio and the hospitality area. I believe that this is a suite guests will rent out for actual parties, b/c of the kitchen area - GF staff can come and prepare and serve food...Sago Cay also has one of these and I think that's it. I've actually stayed in that one before as well but can't remember the name...that stay was in 1994...We need Janet2k'shelp with this!!
edited to add: Just remembered the name: The Cape Coral Suite

Thanks to all of you for sharing.
I don't think I took any room pictures in the past.
That will change with our trip this September though!
