Some pics of our recent stay

The view off our balcony


An arrangement of the some of the items we had in the room, left by the staff when they decorated the room. One of our towel animals is a dog and is right in front of Duffy



Decorations done by the staff



Includes personalized, autographed photo of Minnie Mouse


Another one of our towel animals.


Mousekeeping did this on several evenings. Pluto always held the remote and had it on The Disney Channel. Melody got a huge kick out of this

You had a wonderful view. It looks like it was a beautiful day that day.

I love what they did with the animals. They arranged my grandchildren's animals like that. They had a big Mickey Mouse with them, too.

She really liked the foods in the Lounge too. Drank lots of Apple Juice, which was a surprise since she'd never really had it before. Loved the Peanut Butter and Jelly shooters. Another surprise since in the past she only liked Peanut butter, no jelly.

The pool was a hit, what little we got to use it.
What wonderful memories you helped make for your DGD. Thank you so much for posting your wonderful photos - I love your view, just wish they didn't have those enclosed balcony railings. I love when mousekeeping sets up the animals. I have some cute "mousekeeper magic," as I call it, posted on the first page of the CR thread.

Did you book a BB or have plans to return for DGD's 6th birthday?

No, we didn't book another trip. As for her 6th birthday, she'll be in school so that makes future trips much more difficult. That the primary reason we went all out for this one, staying 10 days, CL, etc. I'm sure we'll return one day but any future trip will have to work around a school break, which means crowds, which we don't do well. I've got 6 individual non-expiring park passes that we'll use one day (gifts from bad experience at Pop last Christmas). Maybe Melody and I will take a short trip with just the 2 of us

The rails (and Roaring Fork) were my only dislikes of the entire Lodge. It wasn't awful but it would have been nice to sit and look out.

I almost forgot to post pics of the little ducklings hanging out in the pool.

They were so very cute. This pic was done the day we arrived. We saw them a week later and they had doubled in size.

From MousePlanet and I heard this on DIS Unplugged 3/19:


Walt Disney World annual passholders can now trade in their paper cards for plastic cards equipped with RFID chips to allow entry through the new turnstile-free gates. Passholders can make the exchange at the Odyssey in Epcot anytime before May 20, and as a bonus there are some props on exhibit there while you wait your turn. Premier passholders still need to wai
t for more information before exchanging passes.

That's cause we're not in your log!

My new wife and I will be in one of the four honeymoon rooms from Apr 24 until Apr 28. On the 28th, we're resort jumping to GF.

My pre-trip report is on the honeymoon forum. Sorry, I don't know how to post the link.
