I read on this board about someone who had bought a fruit basket for his room when he stayed at the Grand Californian. Has anyone been there lately or bought anything like this? What kind of things do they offer? What are the prices? How do you order them?

I was thinking of something like a fruit/muffin basket to grab a bite to eat without having to worry about a big breakfast on early entry days.

Also, I am taking my two friends for their birthdays, and it would be fun to have something special in the room.

Any thoughts/ideas?

Contact Vacation Planning. They deal with all this. Be forewarned, its not cheap, if you just want something fast for breakfast, bring something from Costco. This was posted last July by Tink56 (can't figure out how to link.) And they will make a custom basket for you for $30, plus the cost of the goodies.

Anyone know if these baskets are available for delivery to Good Neighbor hotels? My guess is no but it does not hurt to ask.

For yourself, I'd just recommend ordering what you want, when you want it, from Room Service. Most of these baskets and such are meant as gifts and not really some sort of substitute for meals you could easily (and probably less expensively) get within 30 minutes from Room Service. IMHO.

THANKS for the great information. I was also wondering about just ordering some muffins and a fruit platter from Albertsons and having it delivered. (We won't have a car this trip). Thanks again for the great info.
