    We will be staying at the GF this June 2008 and would like to rent a pontoon boat. Should we call ahead to reserve or wait to see what the weather does? Also, what is the best way to make room requests, fax, call or email? I truly love this panel!!!

    Hi! Our family will be at the Grand Floridian in June too. I bet you are counting the days!

    I would not reserve a pontoon boat ahead of time. You can usually just arrive the marina and rent one on the day that you are ready to sail.

    For your room request: years ago I always faithfully faxed my room requests. Now I find it to be just as effective to have your requests noted on your reservation. Call and let them know your requests and list them in order of importance.

    If you want to be in Boca Chica and close to an elevator, then you would note that on your reservation. If you want to be near the marina and on the first floor, then note those specifics.

    I love the Grand Floridian and this year I have not made any specific room requests. I'm always happy with our room assignment, including the last visit when we were surprised with a top-floor attic room. Smaller but so cozy with a cathedral ceiling!
