I think I am almost done with everything. Looking forward to a tropical cocktail when I check in. MUCH NEEDED
Sending you some pixie dust for all of your requests! You've had a crazy week and that drink will taste extra special! have an amazing time!

Dd and I always do rope drops when traveling alone but we slept til 8am, hit the CsR business club lounge, bussed it to MK and took monorail to poly at 1130 to check in. We got our 3rd floor room request. Our Concierge Sam ( swear he said "Sam your super awesome man) was friendly and efficient so soon in our room.

First we checked out lounge area. WOW WOW WOW!! The view and the furnishings makes you want to stay forever!

We checked our room and the green is NOT too green , very cheerful. The bath looks crisp and clean.

Went to Kona Cafe for lunch then back to lounge to check it out.

I asked for a glass of wine and chatted with a family from the UK. The CM's cleaned up after them and brought more drinks like we were in a bar. I did not get the same service. I asked where to put my glass when done and was pointed to the appropriate area. Some people just don't get it.

Anyways I asked for water for dd and was given one for our room. While I was there the floor got vacuumed with one of those little quick broom things. Place was immaculate and just so pretty. I just had coffee and our luggage fom CSR arrived at 245. I am going to change and get a drink and sit in the lounge while lazy head still sleeps. Is she sleeping beauty, or princess and the pea??? Why old mom not tired an a 18 is exhausted

Love the poly, glad I splurged with my dd 18 . I see moms with kids on laps and think "where did the time go???" I will try to check in tomorrow.

Well thanks to our Canadian Pooh Friends the Friday night offerings were all the same except no chicken, it was a crab ... I forget the name but it was it was in crispy shell and very tasty.

The lounge had no crowds , place was clean , people friendly. I did see bathing suits in the afternoon, but they grabbed and ran so wasn't bothersome. It may be me tomorrow since sun is finally coming out

Turndown service was nice. Dd had taken a nap and they remade bed and left chocolates on both beds, yum!

So far a 10+ , everything has been wonderful, worth every penny.

Really love the lounge space. So pretty and new to water. The decor is so poly!

Wanna be Ariel the Longboard Beer is still here! I got one and dd and I took a sip, ( or 2)yum!

Oh ya, I left our toothbrushes at CSR and called for some at concierge.i swear,I told dd to listen for door because I was going to sit in lounge while she finished her hair and I passed the person delivering them! Must have been 2 minutes from when I called.

For those of you planning, enjoy the waiting, soon you will be here too

Thanks for the info. We are getting so close to our stay now. Just need to get through some really tough weeks ahead. (My MIL is having a heart valve replacement and bypass surgery this morning). We are really going to need that club level stay!

Love the poly, glad I splurged with my dd 18 . I see moms with kids on laps and think "where did the time go???" I will try to check in tomorrow.

Thanks for the report.....sounds like you're having a great time . I'm with you on "where did the time go". We have 2 DSs that are 18 and (going to be) 20 and it seems like they just 6 & 8, at which time we took our first Disney trip......time really does fly .

Woo hoo! 60 days out! Just completed online check in!

Funny thing, I wasn't even thinking about our trip for weeks, too much going on. In fact, I suffered a concussion and can't really think clearly at all. I'm a bit derpy. (Think Dory.) I just randomly thought, hum..........wonder if we are 60 days out yet? And it just happened to be!

Can't wait!!!!

Hope I have my brain back by then.
