Day 3 -- Monday
Disney Studios on the menu for today. Slept in a little (7:30), had bagels and cereal in the room and headed out. Got there just in time to see the Little Mermaid show and scoot directly over to Bear after in time for his show. Big hit. Did the back lot tour which I enjoyed but DD didn't. Then lunch at Pizza Planet at the request of DD. Once that was done, off to Tower of Terror. DD had been insistent on doing this for the past 3 months. Went on it. LOVED it. Had to go again.

Then she asked to go back to MK for the parade. So we did. Got there just in time for the parade. She got to dance with Cinderella (DD couldn't even speak after -- a first!). Then went back to BTM and Splash Mt for some more rides. Headed over to Toon town and rode the Barnstormer a few times and visited Mickey and Minnie's houses. Had dinner then went back for a final ride on BTM before the fireworks. Actually had the last ride of the night because just as we were pulling into the disembarking area, the ride stopped. We had to wait until the CMs came to remove us and walk us a short way through the ride to exit. From there were walked down to Main Street for the fireworks, then to the busses for the trip back.

We arrived back at 8 only to find our room had not been cleaned. I called housekeeping to ask what happened -- especially since we needed new towels since we had used the same ones the past two days. They didn't know what happened but would send someone down. At 9 they hadn't arrived and I had to call again. They finally arrived at 9:45 with a handfull of towels, turned around and left. DH, DD, and I ended up making the beds and taking the bag from the recycle bucket to empty the trash cans. I was not impressed.


Day 4 -- Tuesday
DH's plans include playing golf so DD and I decide to go to EPCOT then come back for an afternoon at the pool. Called for a PS at the Garden Grill and easily got one for 11:30. Had a great time exploring the Land, the Living Seas, Spaceship Earth and the Imagination Station. Character meal again was wonderful. Very few people there when we arrived so lots of character interaction. They spent a great deal of time with us. And the waitress was wonderful and attentive.

Headed back and arrived at our room at 2 to find it had not been made up. Didn't think too much of it, changed to our suits and headed to the big pool for an afternoon of fun. Had a great time at the pool. Headed back to the room at 4:30 to find room still had not been made up. Called Housekeeping and ask that they send someone down to make the bed and remove the trash. I was very pleasant about it (my DH was not happy at all and thought I should have been much more forceful) and they were very apologetic. About an hour later, as we were leaving for Downtown Disney a housekeeper arrived. (She made the beds, did NOT empty the trash, did NOT leave new towels. Luckily she did not pick up the housekeeper tip envelops that were now piling up! When I got back I called for another trash bag and to have the trash from the previous two days removed since we were now overflowing and I didn't want to leave any outside the door to attract unwanted animals. They finally came around 10).

Had a nice evening in Downtown Disney. We spent lots of time playing at the Legos area, did some gift shopping, had dinner, and went back.

Princessmon, Thanks for the great report. Sounds like a pixie dust day for your daughter.

Sure hope you get the housekeeping problem corrected.

Your visits to the park sound great! I would be grumbling over the housekeeping issues as well. That is one of the nice things about staying in hotels -- someone else takes out my trash. I am enjoying your trip report.

I am suprised about your housekeeping problem. When my family stayed in 99, our housekeeper even made little animals out of our new towels each day..
Great report
