I bought it when we were on a Disney cruise (in anticipation of this trip.) I saw the same line for sale at the gift store in the Contemporary while we were on this trip in May. Maybe they have it online too?

Congratulations on your pregnancy! It's hard to imagine four kids as we're just now figuring out one!

Thanks! Don't worry, the first is the most difficult! With our first, we couldn't even figure out how to leave the house for three months! It get's easier every time!

I'm glad we have two trips planned to WDW before the birth of baby #4. (Even though I'll have to skip a bunch of rides.) I'm sure it will be a while before we travel with 4 kids on our own.
Just found your TR and love it!!!

Your room at BLT is AMAZING!!!

And congrats on the newest addition to your family!!!

First Congratulations on the new baby.

I do agree with the choice of running back to a cranky kid or hitting the next ride. Great choice! You all make it look so easy going with a big group.

Don't you just love when they end up peeing on YOUR pants. Has happened to me more than once.

Love the pics!

Jacob and I did a little shopping at the Contemporary while others were relaxing. When we got back the room was dark and we figured they were out at the movie under the stars.




Sure enough, there they were. It was a nice cool evening. Funny aside, just the day before SIL mentioned that she had never seen a snake in the "wild" before. Well, she had one cross her path out here tonight. How ironic! I've always heard there are a lot of snakes on the resort properties.




I cut out of the movie early to go see Wishes from the Top of the World Lounge. Since I had missed it at MK, I was definately looking forward to this. DH wanted to stay for the movie with the kids and see the water pageant.

Top of the World Lounge is at the top of Bay Lake Tower with viewing on the roof or from inside the lounge of Wishes. Music is played as well. Only DVC owners staying at BLT are allowed up there. The lounge serves drinks and appetizers. We were able to access the lounge and roof directly because the top story of our villa opens to the 16th floor. Most people have to check in with a CM at the desk and be escorted to a special elevator to access the lounge.









FIL bought a round of drinks for us. BIL brought Kyle and Avery up too. They had Kiddie Cocktails.

A few shots before the fireworks began...






From the roof, looking in..


More pictures coming soon...

I enjoyed the unique experience at the Top of the World, but it is weird seeing the fireworks so far away from the castle. Nothing can beat Wishes viewed from Main Street. But then again, nothing can beat setting your wine glass down, and walking 100 feet to your room when it's over!



And here's the part where the castle explodes...






BIL took the kids down to see the water pageant before the end of Wishes. Once it was over, FIL engaged the lounge manager in at least a 20 minute conversation. He can talk to anyone for ages! All the while FIL's back was to the window where I watched the entire water pageant go by. He never knew what he missed!






Next up: Our LAST day!

Great update! Wow, didn't even know there was a special place for people that stayed in the towers. How nice. It is so funny because the castle looks so tiny compared to the fireworks. You got some good pictures.
