Those bath bombs are heaven!!!

On our last trip DD and I put one in the tub and sat on the edge and just soaked our tired legs and feet...It was great..of course she chose ours and it was one of the mickey ones...

I have a bunch here at home...no clue what scent they are...they just all smell soo good...

Basin White is one shop we always stop in ...and never come out empty handed!! there is also a Basin at DTD...

We have the same type of day planned also! We will be sleeping in late, going to a late breakfast at 1900, taking in the sites and maybe some shopping until 1:30. Savannah is booked to do that wonderland tea party the guys are doing sea racers and after we are all going to hit the pool.
We haven't decided if we want to do the GF cafe, the RPC lounge of CS for dinner yet. The GF cafe doesn't get as crowded as other places so walk ups are generally pretty easy. We are also going to do the campfire but chances are won't stay for the movie.

Did you know that particular store is online? The Basin White is ONLY at the GF (the Basin is at DTD)
http://basinwhite.com/

Some of my favs are the wild palm (but I am the only one in the house that likes it)
calm waters
tranquility
Paradise is another must have for me!!!!

DD's fav is either sweetheart or pink sugar

Brook My DD loves that pink suger too...Ya I know the DTD store is Basin not Basin White...seems that some of the soaps are a little less expensive... They do have a nice selection there too...

It was posted a while back that if you order from Basin White your order comes right from the GF...I think that itself is a good enough reason to order from there!!!

Last summer we did the camp rock premier party at the beach and no bugs


I *think/guess* the camp rock beach party was such a big hit and the kids had so much fun ~ they decided to add a little beach party camp fire at night after!

The Kid's director and the Poly and the GF came up with the camp rock beach party and those kids had a BLAST!!!!
I am hoping its similar.

looks like I can monorail it to Epcot and go to and from Sea World from there!!!!

We'll see i think I will give them a call. I know I looked into going to the Transportation center and they have a bus that you can take, but not so sure about that..

Anyone know another way to get there from the GF?
Angela
You can catch the Lynx bus from the TTC. I think it is about $4 pp to SeaWorld and drops you right next to the entrance.

Hi everyone. I leave in 1 hour for my first stay at the Grand!!

I did the online check in so I will let everyone know how that goes.

We are very excited. I will fill everyone in either there or when I get back. I think we will most likely pay for internet so I can update while I am there.

If anyone has any questions or suggestions let me know

I agree

We don't go to DTD anymore. One reason for that is that DD and I once took the bus from GF (years ago) and it took 55 min. to get there! No thanks!

Sounds like a relaxing day at the Grand
I had the Lobster-Tarragon salad last summer and it was delicious!
We always seem to have really sweet servers at the GF Cafe

I can't believe that two weeks from now we will be at the wonderful GF resort. We have the MK view. Just booked our massages yesterday. (Yes this is a complete resort experience for us). Lots to do between now and then.

All the talk of Basin and bath bombs sent me to my bathroom cupboard. There it is - my beautiful Basin body butter from GF. Don't laugh, it's oatmeal honey. Just open that little tub and you'll be relaxed and hungry at the same time.

Ooh, Johnsonet, that lobster tarragon salad looks a light and perfect lunch. You are quite right about the staff at GF Cafe. They are sweet. Hmm. I do hope lobster eggs benedict is still on the breakfast menu.
