The Contemporary looks really nice. I am hoping to try BLT as my next DVC resort. We'll see!

haha, yeah, the walk is faster but hey, you just got there, so the monorail is definitely more fun.

I'm subbing! So impressed so far with your TR and your number of posts!!! Wow!

You mentioned you had a new camera, I am shopping for one as well, do you mind sharing what kind you got and if you like it?

I have a 13, 10, and 7 year old and we love One Direction and JB of course!

Have a great night!
Erin

So glad I got some pictures of the room. I'm dying to see one of the potty room-I never see one on any websites. Is there a door to close it off from the rest of the bathroom? I'm weird, I know!

Looks like your room was in a quiet location. Did you mind the walk back to the Tower to catch the monorail?

We ate at CHH for the first time during this past trip. Loved it! I will definitely eat there again! That's pretty funny about the lady working there knowing that 1Direction was on tour. I only know because I have daughters, plus a few of my cheerleaders missed a meeting because they'd gone to a concert!

I want to stay at BLT very badly, it looks amazing, I hope you get to stay there!

Oh I totally agree, I'm not a big fan of the walk, I'd much rather take the monorail, but unfortunately the walk is waaaay faster!

Welcome and thank you!

Really, all I know is it's an Olympus and works pretty well. We still are trying to figure it out though, the flash is weird and whenever I set it to "no flash" it still uses flash or the flash pops up and does this weird thing where the light go on and off repeatedly, but this is probably a user error LOL

1D and Bieber are defiantly the popular teen singers right now, who doesn't love 'em?

You know, I stood in front of the room with the toilet and contemplated whether it was weird if I took a picture of it or not, I ended up deciding against it, oops! There's a sliding door, just like the one leading to the main part of the bathroom, that opens it up/closes it away from the rest of the bathroom.

We did have a very secluded room, and the walk to get to the monorail was kinda lengthy, but it wasn't that bad. The only part that stunk, was going back and forth to fill up our mugs a couple times a day!

CHH has become one of my favorite quick services in MK, we try to eat there at least once a trip! One Direction have taken over, I haven't met a teenage girl who doesn't know who they are lol

Good Old Fish and Chips

Thursday, July 5th

After we all decided what we wanted, my parents waited to order while my brothers and I went upstairs to find a table. Joey and I sat down and Johnny went back downstairs to tell our parents where we were, and ended up just waiting with them.

While we were waiting, a CM came over to our table and wiped out table down for us and chatted with us. He asked where we were from and then noticed there were two teenagers at the table behind us and asked if we knew them, we told him no and once he finished cleaning the table he started talking with the other two at the table behind us and he goes "you and your boyfriend aren't from north carolina?" and the girl goes "no we're from Los Angeles, and that's my brother"

He was very entertaining, too bad I forgot his name :/

Soon after the CM left, my parents and brother came back with the food! Normally, I just get chicken nuggets when we eat at Columbia Harbour House because I'm usually not in the mood for sea food after being in the heat all day. But I had decided to change it up.

I got the Chicken Breast Nuggets and Fish

Can you see them under all those fries? lol!

Johnny got Chicken Breast Nuggets (8 pieces)



Joey got the Fried Shrimp Basket, which he LOVES


My mom got the Kid's Tuna Sandwich


and my dad got the Kid's Chicken Nuggets

Which he said tasted like cardboard. From here on out, my dad become known as the "scavenger" he would eat whatever the rest of us couldn't finish, no food went to waste this trip!

After a good meal we made our way to Fantasyland to see the new stuff!
















Dumbo looked pretty cool, but we didn't ride it, the wait was crazy long.
We also checked out the Barnstormer and all the new decorations, we didn't ride that either because the line was also too long for a 20 second ride


I enjoyed the posters we walked by on our way back out of Fantasyland







We headed over to BTMRR



We got FPs for it, and then waited by the exit because Joey wanted to go see what was making this weird noise
While we were waiting, a man walked by and noticed my dad's Yankee hat. He goes "You from New York?" and my dad told him he was originally. So the man handed my dad a card and was like "it's good for the rest of the day here" and then left

We really should have asked him what exactly it was, because we weren't entirely too sure and felt kind of bad using it since none of us had a problem where we would need to use the wheelchair entrance or something like that (since we assumed that's what it was for, since it says Guest Assistance). We didn't use it, but it was a really nice gesture!

Anyone know what "ST" stands for on the card? It says "Location of Issue" and then has ST marked... we knew what all the other ones stood for, but could not figure out ST! Any ideas?

Up Next: Night Rides Are the Best!

Mmmmm... the food at CHH looks really good! I may have to check that place out and the Chicken Breast Nuggets and Fish! to going to check out the new Fantasyland, looks great in your pictures, a shame the lines were so long though :/ So nice of the man to give you that pass, but yeah that is one weird thing to give to a person especially when you don't need special assistance... and I wonder if ST stands for DHS because the other ones look like they are name for parks. Strange, very strange...

Can't wait to read more!
