Glad it was quiet over at the BWI side! We still don't know what set it off.... we'll go investigate after we have some breakfast. Loudest noise I think I had ever heard.

That happened to us last month at the Grand Californian in Disneyland, but not 3:30am! It was closer to 7am, which also isn't great because I was getting our family of five ready for rope drop! The other element is that, because the Grand Californian is adjacent Downtown Disney, many of us were out in Downtown Disney in pjs.

I meant to add this to my earlier post . . . our boys were asking what caused the alarm at GCH, and I said that it could be a number of things, like an issue in the restaurant kitchen or guest room toaster use. Sure enough, a CM confirmed for us that it was guest room toaster. Ugh!

We had that happen at Beach club a few years ago at about the same time. It was insanely loud. Although it was really loud it was hard to wake up our child. Very funnny to see everyone in the back of Beach Club in their pjs. Afterwards I realized I was so disoriented and just thinking about getting out that I realized I did not bring my purse with me. Glad it was nothing and we were able to get back in our rooms.

This also happened to us while staying Animal Kingdom Lodge Concierge. They evacuated all in front of the building about 1 am.

Oh no, sorry that happened to you! We had the same thing happen at a non-Disney hotel once. It is kind of funny seeing all your fellow hotel neighbors standing around outside in pj's.

So I guess I do need to buy those cute red and white pjs I saw today. Thanks for the excuse to go shopping.
