    Question Upgrade at Grand Floridian?

    After reading this post, its got me thinking about an upgrade ��. Can anyone give me a rough price an upgrade would cost? We presently have a theme park room view for 2 nights at the GF hotel. I would call Disney to ensure,but am out of the UK at present.

    Have now answered my own question. Its an extra 300 for an outer lodge club level with either marina or garden view. But will it be worth it compared to the theme park view already booked???

    This comes down to personal preference. 300 is a lot of money and I think I would prefer the theme park view over the other two. What would you get for the extra 300?

    Your absolutely right, 300 extra buys you next to nothing really.. Access to a lounge, free nibbles and a personal concierge.

    Why is it these sort of things sound great in our heads, then when others point out the reality of them... You suddenly wonder what was I thinking!!

    We could get almost another night in the GF for that. Now I have the Wife tell g me to stop thinking and if I have that amount of spare cash to throw around (which in reality I don't), then give it to her for extra Disney Pandora charms.!

    I agree, a theme park view is superior to Garden or Marina. Concierge is nice, but is it really worth that much more? And imagine how many 'nibbles' 300 could buy.

    You should have a terrific view already, so I think you've done well in deciding against Club.

    The concierge is a nice perk, but I am not sure that it is 300 nice. I have never done concierge at Disney, but I know a number of people that have and the feedback I hear from a lot of them that they don't get full benefit from the concierge lounge as they are out and about for most of the day and the concierge lounges close at around 22:00.
