    I 2nd guess myself constantly-want fun, relaxing vacation for kids (7 & 3)... booked GF & leaving in 2 wks. Heard a lot about pool at BC and worried pool experience at GF will be disappointing for kids.Can they play in sand?How is pool at GF for k

    Hi Denise,

    You must be so excited for your upcoming vacation!  The Grand Floridian is a beautiful resort!

    Our family loves staying at the Beach Club.  The location is great and the pool is really a mini-water park.  However, I don't think your children will be disappointed with the pool at the Grand Floridian.  The Beach Pool includes a rock waterfall and waterslide.  It also has zero-depth entry which will be great for your youngest.

    While swimming in Seven Seas Lagoon is not permitted, sunbathing on the Grand Floridian Beach is!  Your children will be able to build sand castles and play by the shore.  At night you can watch the Electrical Water Pageant and view Wishes (the fireworks in the Magic Kingdom) while sitting on the beach.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
