BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!
Wow!! What luck with your view! That would've brought tears to my eyes too. This is one property I really want to stay at, so I'm looking forward to your thoughts on it.

what a perfect first morning! Isn't that the BEST feeling? Waking up just before you need to all on your own?

I know it sounds silly but I'm like you....I may not have 4 alarms (though have been known to on work trips between cell phone, wake up call and the clock in the room, not totally trusting any of them) but I can hit snooze for an hour, every day, without batting an eye.

LOVE the room pics, so pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!

I still can't get over how light you travel.

Major pixie dust all around so far, love it!

Fabulous update Brook! I love your descriptive narrative too, I love details!

I seriously laughed out loud when I read about your vast array of alarm clocks! That was me in college. I used to be a very heavy sleeper and it usually took my sweet room mate dragging me by the feet to get me actually up! I think I was always in denial that it was time to get up or something? I'm better now but I still don't always hear my alarm!

Ok, I'm going to have to agree with Tim and ask how the heck you managed to pack you AND Henry in a backpack?? The laws of physics totally negate that possibility! If indeed you DID pack that smartly, well, you should write a book or host a segment on Martha Stewart!

Wow, you had excellent Disney magic while traveling and when arriving! I hope it continued. I love that the CM's made a big deal out sweet Henry's b-day button! The rooms are lovely at BWV too. And your view was amazing, so pretty! Henry looks so thrilled to be there, jumping away on the bed and watching himself in the mirror! Adorable. And I totally understand your teary-eyed feelings about being there. It's just a special place and nowhere else makes me feel that way.

How is it humanly possible that you do NOT have a Chick-fil-a?? I'm seriously baffled. The original chicken sandwich is one of my favs and guess what else? At Christmas time, they have a peppermint milk shake. Oh Brook, it's like this drink fell from the heavens, it's that good! Better IMO (don't get upset!) than the shamrock shakes from Mcd's. There, I said it! Please don't kick me off your trip report!

Joining in the fun after stalking the PTR. I'm loving all the pics since I didn't follow on FB. They are FABULOUS!

As for you who have yet to experience Chick Fil A, I am so so sorry.

Let's go Dec 2011!

What a magical morning you had already! We had a room on the third floor below you back in Feb 2008 with a huge balcony! It's great that you didn't make any requests and got such a fabulous view

I'm in! Love your TR so far. Very impressed that you were able to do it by yourself. Your son is so sweet.

We will be traveling with a turning 3 year old on the trip so I can't wait to see all that Henry is able to do to get an idea for my DS.

And Chick-Fil-A rocks. We have a ton here. But I would give them all away for 1 Dunkin Donuts. Heck, I would give away a kid for that.

And in the future...the chick Fil A kids meals have notoriously lame toys but you can trade the toy for ice cream if you want. Yum!

Keep the updates coming!

That is one very beautiful view. We stayed at BWI in 2004. We had the room on the corner right over the yellow awning (over the candy shop, I think?). We spent a lot of time just sitting on that balcony and soaking it up.

Sounds like yall had an amazing start! Can't wait to hear more.

Girl, I cannot believe you have never had Chick-fil-a before! I'm eating there for lunch today. Open one up in NYC & you will be rich!!!!

I'm glad you had a great trip down.
Henry looked so cute jumping around in the room. And, your view was awesome!!!!!

How many SD cards did you use? You're making me think I may need to buy some extra ones with the amount of pictures you took.

What a great view you had at the BW. Out of all the trips we have made to Disney we have never been down to the BoardWalk area, I am going to try and make it this year. Can you get to the boardwalk area from epcot?? Im trying to think of the easiest way.

I loved the official first update!! I remember seeing the Chic Fil A sandwich picture on FB and giggled. We live in the land of Chic Fil A and I guess we're fortunate. They make great food and I'm pretty sure they have ties to being, how do I say...a religious company because they are closed on Sunday's and their CEO speaks to this quite often. Not sure if you knew that trivia or not

Keep them coming - no pressure!

It's super simple...take the international gateway, it's a little walk way coming from the UK right before France. You can hop on a boat or take a quick walk right ot the boardwalk area!!

Brook - if you ever travel over into New Jersey they have Chick-Fil-A's there. I think the closest one to the city would be Paramus Mall maybe. Don't know for sure. I do know I have 2 with 5 miles of me Probably the only fast food I will eat. Love the lemonade too.

Yay, awesome start! Loved the alarm clock story!
The photo of Henry on the bed by the pillows is so cute! He looks full of fun mischief! Again, I love your view, love the Boardwalk, so happy you liked it!
It's fun to have followed you on FB and now getting all of the details... it's like you are there again!
