Oh Marissa what a gorgeous room!!! I am beyond happy for your family; I read that whole update with a huge grin on my face.

I've often thought that the CR rooms looked kind of boring, kind of un-Disneyish. (and I love modern furnishings) However, your room is stunning! I think that I love all of the art, and that table is so cool.

What an amazing view!!!!! I just picture sitting out there in the morning watching the world go by.

Again, so very happy for you! I can't believe that's only the beginning of the pixie dust!

Okay, you have redeemed yourself with the multitude of updates. I can't believe how lucky you were to receive such an amazing upgrade!!! What are the odds that I can get THAT room as an upgrade from All Star Music in October?

Seriously though, totally jealous. That room looks beautiful. I hope you enjoyed it!!!

Well butter my behind and call me a biscuit! What a fabulous dousing of pixie dust, kids!!! Let this mantra be a lesson to everyone at Disney -- "waiting is good... waiting is good... waiting is good." So happy for you, and oh, yeah, by the way, I'm in for the long haul on your trip report -- love it!

OMG!!!! What an amazing upgrade!!! I'm dying.

That has to be one of the most beautiful villas I've ever seen. I love all of the artwork soooo much, I love how it's Disney, but it's modern...that picture of the monorail track is so perfect, I want that for my bedroom!

And the view!!! Again, I'm dying, could it BE more perfect? I cannot even imagine what it must be like to come back to your room at night and see THE CASTLE from your room. Or in the morning...*sigh*. If BLT was available for my November trip, I'd book it right now, but I'm pretty sure it's full.

<-- Okay, so this avatar says "scared", but I think the appearance is pretty accurate. O.M.G!!! That room is amazing! I'm sure the 1 bedroom would have been great too but what an awesome surprise!!!

And your view??? I love the fact that there are TWO balconies. And you can see the castle!

I guess we can cut you some slack for the cliff hanger on the last post now You have made up for it!

Just wow!!!!

I'll be totally honest, I've never had any desire to stay at CR or Bay Lake, but you have made me change my mind!

That view!!!

I cannot even imagine how amazing it must have been to relax in your resort after a day in the park or after waking up, going out on your balcony and seeing THAT!

How'd you ever manage to check-out and return home?

Oh.my.goodness. That is absolutely INCREDIBLE! I am in complete awe! I was almost jumping up and down on my bed as I was reading that with how amazing it all was, and how excited you were! I love that you got upgraded to that, love love love pixie dust! To wake up to that view every day must have been amazing. Jealously doesn't even cut it! so cool!
