This is the second time we are staying at the Sugar Loaf building at the Grand Floridian and what a difference from last time! The pool was under construction, which messes up the whole atmosphere of luxury outside; the vacation club construction is super noisy as well. The lobby was always so crowded that you had to bump into people constantly to get to the food (last year this time, we had been one of two families usually getting food, this year there must have been 15 families at a time there). The room we stayed in was extremely tired with a disgusting stain on the couch.
The only bright spot for us was the new kiddie pool play area with Alice in Wonderland theme. The kids loved going down the slides while the hat was topping off and spilling water on them.
The monorail broke down several times during our 4 night stay, so in retrospect, we should have changed our reservations as soon as we received a letter that the main pool will not be finished on time for our visit as previously expected.
