Congratulations on the upgrade. What a nice surprise.
That's great that he is silly & has a great time. Everyone should be like that on a Disney trip! The upgrade was wonderful. The week went way too fast!

Zehn like I just mentioned to Susan I think you will love the BC. She is staying there in Sept. also. You might be there at the same time! How did you like POFQ?? That is our favorite moderate.

That's what I figured. So excited for you! I would love to know how other C/L lounges differ from resort to resort. I wonder if they have the same offerings. I never really read up on C/L because I never in my wildest dreams ever expected to stay there.

That would be great for Baylor. I remember reading about that in her report. The celebrities always stay at the Deluxe resorts so there is that possibility. Why wouldn't you want a nice Disney vacation after the season is over. I will keep fingers crossed for him too.

You will need to send me pictures!!

I wanted to get an update in but it just didn't happen. I had to get Mother's Day items on my lunch hour & it was grocery shopping night but I will update on my lunch hour tomorrow. I will have to take a picture of the cute Disney decoration I bought today and post it. Will do that tomorrow.

Off to bed now...

Ok going to try & get in some while on my lunch hour. It has been raining here for the past 2 weeks & tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful out so DH & I want to work outside & get all our patio furniture up. I saw my first hummingbird of the season on my feeder this morning!! I love feeding them & all birds & I get very excited with the first one of the season. I just got home & there was one on my feeder so I grabbed my camera but of course by the time I did that he was gone. I will get a pic though. Anyway I left off that we had just checked in.

Hyacinth walked us to our room. Oh year I forgot to mention they called down to Bell Services to have them bring up our groceries & luggage. We ordered from Garden Grocer so we could have some water, breakfast food, & beer for DH. Little did I know we would be upgraded. I was very surprised when Bell Services knocked on the door about 5 minutes later with everything including ALL our luggage.

Hyacinth also told us if we need ANYTHING to let them know. They did not want to see us in the lobby asking for anything & that they would handle anything we needed. How wonderful is that????

So here is some pics of our room









Our view from the balcony. Straight ahead was a roof but when you looked a little to the left....







We were in room 5677. I keep wanting to say 5667 but that was Amy's (DisMomAmy) room. Now Amy & I live about 30 minutes from each other here in NH but we had never met!! We almost met in 2010 at AK but it did not happen. Well this time we had plans to meet. So when she told me what room she was in I kept getting confused & say we were in room 5667.

Our room was down the hall & to the left about 3 rooms in. We had a couch (daybed) that my oldest Ryan tried out & actually liked it!! So Cody had a queen size bed all to himself & everyone was happy!! Throughout the week I asked Ryan if it was comfortable & he said YES. His back usually hurts when we go to Disney but no hurt back this trip.

So since our luggage & groceries had arrived we put the milk, water & juice in the fridge & we unpacked. Cody & I had a few drawers in the bureau that the fridge is in & Jeff & Ryan shared the drawers in the bureau to the left when you first walk into the room. (Sorry no pics of that).

I made no ADR's or plans on our first day. I was anxious to go to MK so that is where we headed.

But....before we headed to MK one of my DS's needed to see something else first!! What was it?????

Have to go back to work but will update sometime this weekend. Have a great weekend!!!

I am at school, so I can't see the pictures. They will be a treat for me tonight.

I'm guessing you needed to see the gym before you were allowed to go anywhere. I'm guessing that based on what my own bodybuilding son would want to do.

You have to understand the mentality of these kinds of guys. Trent can work a 12 hour day, but if it is work-out day, he heads straight to the gym. Such discipline.

Discipline I clearly don't have, but need to as I get fatter and fatter. I tried to run a little on a mini-tramp, but my knee suffered the consequence. I think water exercise is going to be about all I can do any more, so I am going to need a pool in my backyard - and a privacy fence.

Yes MeMom Cody is exactly the same way!!! If he gets out of work at 10:00 at night he goes to the gym if it is a workout day.

I also do NOT have that discipline & I need it badly. With all the med's & problems I had last year I blew up like a balloon!! Now I need to try & get rid of it.

I have been having a very fun morning taking some video of a bird making a nest in one of our birdhouses out back. I can watch him all day!! Unfortunately I have other things to do like going to the bank & to Lowe's to pick up a hanging plant for MIL. I will post some video later. Also humminbirds!!

Oh, I'm sure of it! We really liked POFQ; it was so quaint and quiet. It was so small too; and it just looked nice. I found it very relaxing, and nice after all the crowds in the park and on the bus and in the stores and at the restaurants......

Wow, that view to the left is mighty fine! I would take it, whether I had to crane my neck to view it or not!

What a great upgrade - unbelievable. It also always surprises me how BIG those deluxe rooms look compared to the values. Last October I stayed at Pop for two nights with my mom and then surprised her with a change to the CR - it was like leaving a closet and moving into a house! I'm totally OK with the values (contemplating one night at AoA before my BC stay in September right now), but the deluxes seem to just have so much more room. Looking at your picture, it looks like you could definitely do more than four people in there for awhile and be ok.

That is so funny that your son had to go to the gym first! That will be me in September! I won't run while I'm on vacation, but I WILL need to lift weights a couple of times so I'm very interested in the gym. I hope you got some pics.

I really like the view from your room!

And you got a daybed! We didn't, but the boys like getting to take turns sleeping with mom & dad when we stay in a regular sized hotel room. Everyone gets their own bed when we are in the villas, but in a regular room, Tim & I each sleep with one of the boys. They like to switch each night.

I think it's so funny that our room numbers were so similar!
