    We will be going to DW Feb 24-28 staying at the GF with a castle view. What do the rooms come with (Coffee maker, fridge, etc)? Are the pools open at this time? It will be me, my husband, and 7 year old daughter traveling. Any last min suggestions?

    Hi Kim!  You will love the Grand Floridian resort and especially with that awesome castle view!

    The rooms are equipped with alarm clocks with MP3 player, cable tv, wifi, hairdryer, small refrigerator, iron and iron board, safe, make up mirror, full length mirror, ceiling fan and yes a coffee maker. The resort pools will be open unless they are going through some sort of refurbishment. In that case they will send you to the next closest resort pool which would be at the Polynesian. But the Grand Floridian does have two so it is unlikely both would be down at the same time. The best time to swim in the winter months is mid day when the sun is at its warmest. The mornings can be quite cool.

    Be sure and take advantage of the great dining at this resort, The character dinner at 1900 Park Faire is hilarious with the step sisters and my favorite Disney restaurant, Citricos, is located in this resort. Take time some evening to sit in the lobby and listen to the great pianist and the small orchestra. It is not only soothing after a day in the park but it is first class musicians!
