Yeah!! Your there! I love the little guy's excitement. The rooms do look very cool and what a treat that they were already ready.

It's park time.

I loved hearing all about your little man's excitement. There's just something about seeing it all with the eyes of a child, since it's all so much more real to them. I truly believe it can be magical for everyone, but it's such a different kind of magic for little kids!! And seeing him on your DF's shoulders just reminded me of my own little man on Dustin's shoulders on my trip. So cute.

I LOVE the Contemporary. And I love how your little man comforted you on the elevator-too cute. I can't wait to stay there one day. You have a great view...it may not be of a castle, but it sure beats most views!!

Yayy you made it to WDW! I could feel your and Little Guy's excitement from your update

BLT's rooms are amazing! I'd love to stay there one day.

Hooray!!! I stayed at the Contemporary when I was 10 years old, but we stayed in one of the Garden Wings (I think the one that is now BLT). I love what they've done with the rooms! Very sleek.

Love how exciting the little guy was...can't wait to see his reaction to everything!

This made me smile. It's the most adorable thing ever. Little Guy is just too much.

The rooms at the Contemporary are GORGEOUS. I am in love with those sinks. I mean, I didn't know it was possible to love a sink as much as I love these. And I haven't even seen them in person! I really need to stay there sometime so that I can meet the sink loves of my life in the flesh...or porcelain?

Ugh, that's super annoying about the message light. Blinking for an entire week? That would drive me insane.

AH!! I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR ABOUT THE MAGIC KINGDOM!!!

Great update tinkgurl! You're really building the excitement. I can't wait to hear what the little guy thinks of MK and what his first ride will be.

for a room upgrade! Those rooms at the Contemporary look really nice.

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

It was just so overwhelming and exciting to want to show him everything. I can't imagine how I'll be with my own kids. haha

HAHA, thanks! I love Sis for getting me that purse! I can't tell you how many people stopped me throughout the trip to ask where I got it.

Love your room at CR....I say this all the time that BLT is beginning to grow on me and I know I will love it once I stay there!

It is so great to finally be going under the gates.

We really are thinking about trying to get into BLT next year!

You are so right. It was so cute to see everything in his eyes. I knew you'd understand my excitement for sure!

Oh my gosh, Little Guy on Fiance's shoulders was a theme for the whole trip. They were inseperable!

The Contemporary is really nice, especially after the remodeling! Yeah, we were just happy to be at WDW-we weren't THAT sad about not having a MK view.

We've stayed in the wing that's where BLT is too! We've actually stayed in both wings and the main tower before this trip. It was great to be back.

He is so cute. The things he says just crack me up! He's definitely growing up!

OMG the sinks were awesome. I can't even explain how the water came out. It was so neat!

The light drove us nuts! We called the next day and they said they'd fix it, but it never went off!

Your room at the contemporary looks AMAZING!

I love the sinks..they are a gorgeous design and your view is stunning.

Can't wait to hear how the little guy liked the MK

~Kristen's Day 3: July 19, 2010

We still haven't left so this will be short again! I was up early to get ready for my last day of work before we left for WDW! I checked us in for our flight at 7:35 and got us in group A Chris worked all day as well. I was FREAKING out all day at work, unable to concentrate because all I could think about was being at WDW in less than 24 hours AND finally getting to meet Tinkgurl. She was texting me a lot giving me the update on their progress. I was so excited for her and the Little Guy! Traffic on the way home from work prevented me from being able to get to the gym on time for the class at 6:15 so I just finished up my packing. Eventually I showered and put in the movie "Julie and Julia" to watch to help me try and fall asleep. No matter how good a movie is, I rarely make it through an entire one so I figured this was the way to get past the "I'm too excited to sleep" syndrome. Well, it worked temporarily. I think I finally fell asleep at midnight, was up at 2:30, was up again at 4:30 and then just stayed awake until 5 when I had my alarm set to get up and get ready to go to the airport!! I don't think Chris slept particularly well either, from what he told me!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since my day 3 was so short, the next few updates will just be Tinkgurl finishing up her day 3. Stay tuned for that because they finally make it to a park!! After she finishes, day 4 will include both of us and that's when we finally meet

you made it! The room looks fantastic and the view is wonderful!

I get excited seeing people reactions to WDW for the first time. And I still get all giddy when I see that gate, actually I see a Mickey head power pole from the interstate and get all excited. That when I know we are there.

Looking forward to hearing about the reaction to the monorail and the Castle!

Woo hoo, you're there! I don't know where I have been because I didn't realize you were staying at the Contemporary until one of those live updates. I guess I thought you were at OKW again!

haha, I am the same way about the brochures/guide maps. It's not like we need them but it's always fun to pick them up from each trip. We have a whole stack of old ones which are funny to look at and see all the old attractions!

Aw, I can just imagine your excitement as you showed the Little Guy all things Disney for the first time! I was practically bouncing up and down in my seat with you.

Your room is awesome and the view is awesome, too! I love how clean and modern everything looks. Can't wait to hear more.

Yay, you made it! I love that the little guy promised to make sure you were okay during the elevator rides and reassured you every time you made it down. So sweet! I can't wait to see what his first ride is and finally make it to MK

Kristen, I sleep like that too when I'm going somewhere, especially to Disney World...it stinks. I can't wait for the part where you guys finally get to meet!
