Thanks for the compliment on the kitchen.

Isn't that the pits? - no countertop! Its so hard to function without a kitchen. At least you had a sink to use. That was the worst part for me.

I am not sure why the countertop takes so long. I don't know if its the final measurements and cutting. I guess I should have asked.

The opening ceremony is so fun. But if its a choice between much needed sleep and the opening ceremony, I would have to pick the sleep.

When I put them up on the mantle I thought they would make the cutest stocking hangers, but they're not - they are just figurines. However, if we both thought the same thing then I suspect there is a marker for Disney figurine stocking hangers.

I hear ya on that. This winter had been such crappy weather everywhere. I think everyone would pick a Disney trip over just about anything else. That's why I am so glad I got the kitchen done in December. No time for regrets before it started. Now I know it was totally worth it and I am positive you will feel the same way.

Thanks! I love it. It meant no DVC point purchases this year, but there's always next year.

That was such a surprise to find them on Christmas because I said NO GIFTS. (well, actually I had picked out one thing for him to give me, but he picked them Jim shores out all on his own).

I keep all my Disney stuff in my guest bedroom, but I am going to find a "better" place for them.

The jen-air had to go back in the island. There was no other place to put it. I am happy with it now, but I would prefer a kitchen that had a regular stove.


Maybe I should bring the mickey stopper in May. Better yet - maybe I should just buy another one! I think they have Mickey heads with pretty swirly colors in them!
the cooktop looks like a vast improvement over the old one

they do have pretty swirly ones and I think you definitely need one. I may "need" some of the mickey wine glasses so between us, we should be set for some vino on the balcony in May!

Granite, real or fake is the best. Nothing better than never having to worry about finding a hot pad or trivet again!

I don't cut on it as that grosses me out but lots of folks do.

Pool Time!


After the opening ceremony at MK we went back to BLT to prepare for our day. I think I was more ready than MEK so she showered up while I got dressed and went down to the front desk to look for my batteries . Before I left on my trek, we made a split decision to change our ADR. We had such a good time at Epcot the day before that we really wanted to spend more time there. Instead of having dinner at Yak & Yeti tonight we decided to find somethng at Epcot. We made a short list of places to eat and I was sent to the concierge to check for batteries and switch the ADR.

Pics along the way!












Look! More vultures! They make Space Mountain look more like the Haunted Mansion!


Love the Mickey details.

Some of the things I dislike about the Contemporary include the setup of the shops inside. Bayview Gifts is the largest shop and has clothes, jewelry, confections, art, housewares, frames and such. Across the hall is Fantasia Market which is more like a grocery store. Smack in the middle (of the walkway) is Fantasia which offers some clothes but mostly toys, pins, mugs, and collectibles. I just can't figure out why A) it's smack in the middle of the walkway, and B) why are the names so similar? Fantasia and Fantasia Market! I needed stamps and they are sold at Fantasia Market. Silly me, went in to Fantasia by mistake and waited in line to find out I was in the wrong place. Picking the wrong one is hard not to do considering it's *in the middle of the walkway* and is the first thing you see. Very easy to walk right past Fantasia Market and not even know it's there.


See what I mean? Fantasia is easy to find, but on the right of the picture, way in the back, is Fantasia Market.






Again, love the Mickey details! Pants!



One of the other things I dislike about this resort is how hard it is to get to the front desk. It's quite the windy path you have to take. Out my door, down the hall, down the elevator, across the walkway, down an escalator, past the conference rooms, around and down another escalator. But I made it! While I waited to check for my package and make a new ADR I admired the front desk area. They went with a chocolate brown and blue color scheme which is nice but how long is that going to work? I also think the whole place looks like it was furnished by Ikea. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Ikea but for a place as "swanky" as this is supposed to be, Ikea doesn't cut it. There were beautiful arrangements of brown orchids all along the desk and they were being changed out while I waited. The "old" ones didn't look bad to me but the GM of the Contemporary makes sure they stay fresh. Now that I think about it, I should have asked if I could've taken some of the old ones back to my room. Damn hindsight!

I did jump in the shower when we got back from opening ceremony, because I was still wearing my stinky sweat (and the clothes attached to it) from my run. I did a quick rinse and spin and then put my bathsuit on, since we were heading out to breakfast followed by another pool hop. I see that Jen got some really cool pics on her ill fated excursion to find her elusive battery.

Yes - we decided to change our Yak and Yeti ADR. I really wanted to eat there, but the one true reason I wanted to go to the AK that evening was to ride EE in the dark. And even if we had been 15 minutes and fashionably late to our ADR, we still wouldn't have accomplished that goal. You see, I had been tracking the rising and setting of the sun for three weeks prior to our trip, and it just wasn't gonna happen. It was still going to be a shade too light to ride EE in the dark dark. BUMMER! Everyone knows I have been dying to do this and, in 13 trips to Disney, I have consistently failed to accomplish this. Of course, EE was probably only around for 1/2 those trips, but still??????

Since we had such a great time in Epcot the day before, and we only had 2 KP missions under our belt, we decided to change our ADR to Epcot and hang out there. I am glad that Jen didn't tell you where we ended up. Let's let that be a surprise, shall we?

So Mission Next......BREAKFAST! But not before I grabbed a few random pics.

Oh, but wait, here's still a few I took outside the MK.....





I love this sign and never really noticed it before:



Never noticed this either:





When we got back to the room, I couldn't help but notice that our water fountain outside our balcony had formed a rainbow.



Go figure? Why would there suddenly be a rainbow there? That's a question for all you science majors!

I have a thing about resort maps, so somewhere along our trek I took these:





We also stopped outside, because I was obviously trying to practice my lesson of photographing water at different shutter speeds.





Onward to breakfast! Decisions, Decisions...Where would we eat today?

Well, one of the things I was really hoping to do on this trip was eat at Kona. We didn't build this into our dining plan ADRs. I think we just decided to show up and see if would could be seated. I have heard of plenty DISers walking up. And I have heard sooooooooooo many great reviews of the food that I had visions of Tonga toast and macadamia nut pancakes dancing in my head.

We had no trouble walking up. We were seated quickly and we happily ordered. I must admit, I did not have the Kona press coffee that so many people rave about. I made this decision because I already had several cups of starbucks and I knew it would probably push me right over the jittery edge. But, boy oh boy, would I love to wake up to a pot of that stuff someday. Room service please!

I also turned down the juice, but Jen had it and deemed it delicious. I have this crazy thing about drinking calories. I usually avoid them in drinks, unless the drinks are smoothies or contain alcohol. They don't count!

In short order I was delivered my Tonga toast:



I know that some people don't like the tonga toast because its too sweet, but my moto is that breakfast food can never be too sweet. It was really a bing hunk of heaven. I totally enjoyed it. It was also exactly what I expected it to taste like, so all you folks must be great at providing food descriptions.

Jen opted for the breakfast platter - the big Kahuna!



Let's just say that she didn't even leave enough leftovers for someone as small as Remy! The aunts and uncles at PrimeTime cafe would be proud.

Breakfast was great. The best part of it was I don't think we really had another meal until dinner. Breakfast us over just fine. I love the way a late breakfast will do that.

So Next Stop...Pool Hopping ....and where would two DVCer's go other than the creme de la creme .....the Grand Floridian.

Up Next: Pool hoping at the Old Grand Flo and a special trip to the wedding chapel!

Vast improvement for sure. The sad thing was the old cooktop had broken prior to the update, so I only had one functioning burner. I got to the point that I was microwaving everything. The upgrade could not have come at a better time. One side of the cooktop had a grill on it and you could put a flat surface on it for pancakes, but it was a pain to change over.

I definitely want a swirly one now to go with my new kitchen! And new glasses to drink in would be the best. How fun!

I absolutely love the ganite. I just think it looks so cool. I think Denny would drop dead if I tried to cut directly on it. I would have to resuscitate him. He is really funny about kitchen germs!

Girls, you continue to amaze me with the photos. I haven't been back to the Contemporary since they redid their shops...I think we'll have to go back and give it a look.

ME, we were so disappointed that we missed our Kona breakfast last year (just too tired after spending the evening with Cayley and Avery...but they were worth the missed breakfast). That Big Kahuna is just up Mark's alley.

I've started my PTR under duress and pressure from some of my "friends" here on the DIS.

Breakfast looked delicious....still haven't been there That is an interesting thought of drinking calories....I will have to remember that...although not on vacation....nothing counts anyways

Can't wait for your pool hopping excursion and to see just what happens at the Grand Flo Wedding Chapel

I love those MH wine stoppers...I bought a cute swirly one too and gave it to my parents...I should have gotten a spare for myself too but sometimes my wine doesn't need a stopper

Beautiful pictures once again ladies!

That Tonga toast does look so good, I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to eat more than a couple of bites though, so it would be completely wasted on me We've had a couple of ressies for Kona breakfast but still haven't made it over there for it, I've got to remedy that!

Great Contemporary pics!

I really want to do breakfast at Kona sometime, it looks so good! I really want to try the Tonga Toast, but I don't really like bananas too much, I hope they're not overpowering!

I love that Railroad office window, I just discovered that on my last trip too!

oh man, that would be a nightmare!

I had a coil top in the old house that I replaced with the glass top and then made the move to gas in this house. The HUGE advantage to that glass top is nothing falls down in the burners!

I'm a firm believer in getting ones sweat off too. Glad you had time to shower, get some absolutely gorgeous pix (like you always do) and still make it to Kona. Which I really enjoyed too, BTW.

I can see how the shops at the resort could be confusing- and the trek to the front desk- oy vey! No thanks.

Kona is so good. Doubt we will get there in May, but if you ever stay at BLT you really have to go. Anything that keeps me full until dinner is definitely alright in my book!

I hope your parents use that swirly Mickey. I definitely want one now! There are so many Mickey kitchen things I want and now that I have purged, well I think I might just have some room!

Thank you!

And, if the tonga toast is too much, then find someone to share with! They have so many yummy things on the menu. I am sure you can find something. Definitely put it on your wish list!

I don't think the bananas are overpowering, but I have always liked bananas for breakfast, so I might be a bit biased. I want to try the macadamia nut pancakes next time!

Well, look at it this way - BCV is on the way from POR to MK (well, not if you go the back way, but still). We could pick up Melissa and drive to the Poly parking lot and have breakfast. I am sure Jen can leave the car there while we go to MK. Or we can just park in the TTC. That's saying we do want to go to MK that morning. Even if we don't, Kona is great - just don't drink too much Starbucks in the airport!


Breakfast Dictator - I will be happy whereve we eat breakfast, so dictate away!

Cleaning those old coil tops was such a PITA! This is sooooooooooo much easier. I still haven't gotten completely used to it in terms of how high the heat is for each setting. But I am sure I will master my new stove soon!

Funny - I found a bottle of Captain Morgans that I (or Denny) hid in our closet. We hide all the booze now because we don't want anything going into the hands of the dreaded teenagers. (Brian had a girl over who just decided to help herself to a $20 bottle of wine. Had it opened before he even knew it. How do you like that?)

Anyway - I was thinking I should just put that aside now and start packing the sherpa cooler for May.

I bought all new cutting boards when we upgraded the kitchen, so there's now worries with me using the counter top. It just seems wrong and I am not a total germaphobe when it comes to the kitchen.

I didn't even like walking over to the opening ceremony in my running clothes, but the sacrifices I make for my Disney desires!
