Will let everyone know what it is like overlooking the construction as with a queen deluxe in RPC, I feel pretty confident that we will have a birds eye view.

I have a queen dxl RPC room booked for August/September. I can't wait to hear your reviews of the room and construction. PLEASE take some pictures of the room/view and post when you return. I'm looking fwd to hearing your review!

Cold and dreary here in NJ, however I am not sure I would like to be in 97 degree weather in FL
You know, my DH keeps saying this same thing. He said this morning that it seems like we were at 70 days and now we are at 21. Yes, yes, yes, I am already in the "gotta get this done before we go mode."

We live in Ocean County NJ but I love the hot weather. I have poor blood circulation so it is easier for me to cool off than it is to warm up. So for me the warmer the better.

Have the best time! I hope you are back/post before I go...I would love to hear how the construction is affecting the resort. I am staying in a suite that has two rooms (bedroom/living room)...I have no idea where/what kind...it's a conference so we didn't really get any say other than it's a suite! I can't wait to see your pics! One thing I would love to see, if you get a chance, is what the highchairs look like in Gasparillas?

Yes! How nice you were able to get a suite with your conference rate - score!

baler31 - aww, I probably missed your send off, I know you said you'd be packing today. I don't know how I ended up missing a day of posting! Safe travels, and have a magical trip.

KCmike - Thanks for the nice compliment, and for the use of your photos. I have so many more to add to the first (second?) page, like shots of the buildings, but I had to take a break.

Love the shot of the courtyard pool, looks so refreshing! We haven't had cold weather, but the view of the pool and palms is beautiful.

CoachBagFanatic - Twenty days to go, you are on the countdown.

MommyGina - Only 42 more days until you are in that photo.

I know. Tomorrow we will be in the teens.

I still haven't packed yet. Only because DH didn't bring the suitcases out of storage yet. I started getting all of the dog stuff ready for my DMom. She will be watching my babies for me while we are away. Printed another packing slip even though I have 3 already printed. We will be getting the toiletries box ready this weekend for shipment.

This overwhelming feeling of joy is just taking over me about going back to the GF. I feel like I am getting more and more hormonal the closer we get to our trip.

YAY! I know it was an awesome move on the part of the person booking - people who are bringing their families are getting suites, which turns out to be cheaper than 2 rooms it seems. At least with the conference rate - I think really they just aren't fully booked up in the suites area, but the single rooms would be booked up for the conference.

Okay now I need to know EVERYTHING about 'Club' perks. Will spend the day scouring for information!!

GF Resort Activities

It has been 9 years since our last trip to GF- Can someone update me on the resort activities we may expect July 28- Aug 4? I have already scheduled the kiddos on the Pirate Adventure.

CoachBagFanatic - awww, I'm glad you are finally getting the chance to visit the GF again.

I laughed about your packing slip, you would get along well with DD. I tend to scribble some notes to myself of items I want to be sure get packed, but she makes lists. LOL about the suitcases.

beckysko - Awesome they booked suites for the families, and at a discount. Tough to get a discount on the suites these days.

Glad you have come out of lurkdom to join us.

We have had very nice rooms in SL on both the courtyard and marina side. I have some photos of our last view there of the marina, I'll try to get them posted in the next couple days. I had to take a break from all my photo upload work.

What types of activities do you want to know about? Afternoon tea, Wonderland Tea Party, Sea Raycers, etc. or the pool activities? There are various pool games from around 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 or so; at sundown, there is a movie by the pool.

The Adventures in Cooking was discontinued years ago, sorry to say.

Last fall they only had the Parade of Maids on Monday when we were there. We saw them just a few minutes after 8 AM. This picture was taken from our first floor patio in SL.

CoachBagFanatic-I am getting excited for you and for everyone headed to the Grand! I love the hot weather too. I do NOT like winter here in Connecticut.

Yes, our trip is coming close. I am trying to figure out when our TA will call with our documents for our trip. I have had a countdown to go back to the GF since the day we came back last year.

Nine more days to the Grand. Nine more days to the Grand!!!!! A long weekend celebration of the end of school for the year and the end of our annual passes. And the Sugarloaf booking is the surprise for my girls. Can't wait!
