Default VGF2 open for online booking NOW!

Looks like we don't need to wait for 8am Eastern to begin booking VGF2 if we are inside the usual 7/11 month windows.

Anyone planning to book one of the new resort studios today? I got my after Thanksgiving stay all set. Looks like no dates are sold out yet, but it's not quite 5 am Eastern yet, either.LOL.

Thanks. I ended up securing rooms for my August trip already at VGF (my son loves the splash pad), but this opens up additional options.

Thank you! Secured 2 studios for my weekend with my mom and sisters in November.

Looking forward to booking one for our early May 2023 trip. While I love the bathroom setup in the deluxe studios, we can manage with one less shower. Having a second bed is more important. We checked out the murphy bed recently added to the deluxe studios. It is certainly an improvement over the pullout sofa mattress. But we found it to be entirely too firm for our comfort. I really wish there were some softer mattress options for those of us with lower back issues.

You can ask for toppers as an FYI. oddly with someone with massive back issues, too soft makes it worse so I love the murphy beds right now.

I was not aware of this option. I will definitely request one for our next stay. Thank you!

They are first come first serve of course but we used them for the sleeper sofas. Definitely good for those who need a softer cushion

We want to move our ressie but the lack of a microwave really has us paused. Hard to have a 1BR at BLT with two bathrooms and a kitchen to jump at GFV. We haven't stayed at grand but everyone went "no microwave?"

Doesn't matter to us for short stays. We like to be close to the MK for a few days before we move to EPCOT area for the longer part of our stay.

I am curious to find out the difference between what they are listing as a "beverage cooler" and a refrigerator.
