Mousekeeping set it up..and had the TV set on the Disney channel.

The girls were absolutely thrilled!

I think that is a WASTE of our $ to pay for the TV being on -
the toys could face the TV without the power !

Is 3268 the Casitas? That is a great view, I see the Swan and Dolphin but what is in front of that? Still the Coronado?

It's the little details that Disney does that gives it that little bit of extra Magic...

It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoy it...

Yes, it is Casitas 3. In front of the Dolphin hotel are the rooftops of the Cabanas, and then the bridge that goes to the Dig Pool.

I think DVC at Last is referring to the fact that in DVC the owners split the operating costs in our dues. Since most of the room pics and discussions here are for the hotel part of the resorts which don't touch DVC it's really a discussion for a different thread and place.

I love seeing the animals set up in a cute fashion, staying on our points we rarely stay in one place long enough to have housekeeping come in and do their magic.

omg...I hope you're kidding. Why would they want to do that? If you're serious, you need to lighten up!

We had a corner room with a great view!

I think what the OP is trying to convey is that leaving lights or televisions on when no one is occupying the room is not being very energy conscious on Disney's behalf and it does sort of reflect in the price of the room. I think it is a cute idea to come back to your room and see the stuffed animals lined up watching tv but not very energy efficient.

Exactly. It is cute, but a complete waste of energy and it does reflect in the cost of everyone's room. It does not matter if it is DVC or a paying guest.
We all pay in the long run. IMO every American needs to be more energy
conscious. Would you do that at your house ?
