A "Suite" Trip to Disney World UPDATED 1/28 with Turret Suite Pics!!

Hi all, starting my first TR here, so I will take it in installments.

Ok, here we go, we arrived at our "Stop-At" Disney hotel CBR about 1:20ish.

The Check-In CM was rude, and used phrases such as "I'm not finished" and "You didn't ask me to do that". The rate was different from what we had booked, and we were told "Disney will have to "Suck Up" the difference in the two.




We had requested a renovated room when we booked, as well as one close to the food court, and got one in Martinique, we had requested a extra cleaning, and were told at check in it had been done, and was ready for us to go to. It had in fact NOT been done. As you will see in pic #2, there was not even shampoo or soap in the bathroom. Personally, I will never stay here again.







NOTE:There IS a refrigerator in the room.



NOTE: The Underside of the beds are the standard "Box" form.




Next Up: Same day, Animal Kingdom.

Same Day, Animal kingdom

Hi all, welcome to the next installment of my Trip Report.

We arrived at AK just as the parade was starting.



We had a ADR at Yak and Yeti later on in the day, but decided we would try to get in early. 1 1/2 early to be exact, and guess what, they had a table ready for us! Here are some pics of our meal.




After we ate, we decided to go try Kali.



It was roughly a 25 minute wait, so we had time to take some pics.




We headed back to the resort to dry off, and head to MGM (Hollywood Studios) later on for EMH.

Up next: EMH at Hollywood Studios, and TSM.

Great report so far. I am to am sorry about the CM (if it happens to me I am going to demand to wait for the next available). I to am staying there in December and have only heard more negative than positive. But I will make the best of it. I have stay in the All Star Sports and Movies as well as in The Poly and at WL and have never had any problems with anyone or thing.

Welcome to my next installment.

The camera did not make it to MGM that first night, but I can pick up on August 8.

We checked into the Yacht Club at roughly 9:00. Which means we made it in time for breakfast! Our room was not quite ready, so we were there through mid morning snacks.






Our room was ready close to Check-In. Here is a view from outside(It's the turret on the left side of the pic).



And here is a side view, the turret is on down the left side of the pic, and all the windows you see on the first floor is the room also.



August 9 was a big stay in day, so up next: August 10, the food day.
