WOW, can't believe your first day. No, your first few hours! LOL. I seriously love that view and your pictures are great.

You sound like my sister about the monorails. She has always loved them (but really, what's not to love?!). When we used to stay at the Polynesian I think she would want to ride the monorail all the way around to the TTC (to get the monorail to Epcot) even though you can walk from there. haha!

Those rice crispie treats are amazing. Yum!

I too am excited that the mugs are included in the dining plan!

Still can't get over the view! If would have been there, I would have invited myself up for a quick view!

Awwww, FP's what a great way to start a park.

Yay! Another update! Can I just say that those pictures brought back SO many memories for me?! I absolutely love the Contempo Cafe - one of mine and my Mom's favorite spots to eat! And yes, I love the back of the chairs, too.

Wow, the pixie dust is just flowing wonderfully for you ... I'm so happy for you and your family! I can't wait to see what other surprises are down the road. Really enjoying the TR so far! And ... it's getting me excited for my upcoming trip, too! Yay!

Ok your brother is adorable! I love his reaction to the view in the video and to the cup too, so cute! Love your video in general too, you can definitely feel the excitement! I've just bought myself a camcorder for when we go to WDW I hope I can make a whole video series to go along with my TR

I adore that view! You guys were so spoilt, but in such a good way! Ah-mazing!

Ahhh the monorail :D I literally wouldn't eat I'd be so fascinated with it! So cool that the contempo cafe lets you do that. The ordering points sound pretty cool too! I definitely need to explore these hotels more, I haven't seen those before!

Mmmmm mickey rice crispies, they are far too good!

Oh my gosh such an amazing woman! Pixie dust was definitely raining down on you that day! Love it! Can't wait to read and watch more

I'm not a fan of the "croutons" they put at the contempo either but I've learned to enjoy them. But my fave meal there is the basil chicken pastas you can only get for dessert.

The castmember that accompanied us to the concierge floor had a key thingy for the elevators that didn't work. We were worried our cards wouldn't work.. but they did They have the same keycard reader at the CR. It was new as we didn't see that last year.

I think I might actually die if I could see the monorail while I was eating like that!

You're having fantastic luck! Room upgrade, then fastpasses?

Totally unrelated, but I believe we followed each other on Twitter! I'm @brenZ96!
Thank you!!

Thanks! We were excited to pose with that, hahaah.

They give them to you as part of the meal plan now, so everyone gets one! We ended up with 2 pinks, 2 blues, and 1 black. Hahah, he broke it?? Really not a pink fan, huh? Haha!

I mean... I basically did!!!

It was amazing! It was basically the best beginning to a trip EVER.

OH! Okay! Yeah! See, when someone follows me and I don't automatically know who they are, I will always look at their 'about me' and if it says something about Disney, then I assume they're DISers and I follow them back! Cool that it's you! Feel free to say hello!

I always get something boring like a chicken caesar on my first day. Maybe it's because there are so many great meals to come that I just revert to the usual?

Awesome FPs!!!! More pixie dust already! You haven't even left the resort!
Thank you! I would definitely recommend staying there... AND looking around! It's such a cool looking place.

Yeah, that's basically what I was thinking! I 'planned' for us to eat a little earlier since I didn't expect our room to be ready for a while, but since it was ready right away, we were much closer to our ADR time and I wanted to leave some room! There will be much better food coming... MUCH better! Hahah.

I know! It's completely crazy all of that happened to us before we even went to a park.

The lunch was great! Oh my goodness, it looked really good, too! Unfortunately, we never got to try that one! We tried the other two though, so you'll be hearing all about them!

Hahah, the Disney angel was amazing! Isn't it crazy? It helped us out a lot!

Hooray for Fastpass Pixie Dust! Your day just keeps getting better!
It does! I can't either! I was especially excited because I knew I'd be using it A LOT that week!

Hahah, exactly! I mean, I'm sure they're great people, but I'm not sure I want to remember them forever.

I love the Disney angel! It was such a great day!!!

I feel like I'd like the touch screen order window, but only because I'm a visual learner to the extreme and blind without my glasses, so it's always a little stressful staning in line trying to read a board way up above me. Random, I know.

To sit and watch the monorail as you eat....that's awesome. Could you hear when the doors opened and closed? I'm trying to live vicariously through your report right now.

That's so great that you were able to get free fast passes! You sound like you're having the best arrival day ever.
I believe it's very possible! It was amazing! I'm in love with that ride and I watched it a lot! It gave me the warm fuzzies, haahh.

Oh, I get that! I feel the same way, actually, and my eyesight works just fine haha. I feel like if I don't know what I want right away, the cashier and the people behind me are automatically annoyed with me. But this way you can take your time! There are multiple touch screens and you never feel like you're holding anyone up. It's great!

It was incredible. Well, I don't think you could hear the doors, per se, because the loading station is further down from where the Contempo is. You could definitely hear it whizzing past though! Ahhh it made me so happy!

I know! I actually think it was the best EVER.

Super awesome pixie dust on those ride return FPs! Could your afternoon get any better!
Thanks! We had a lot of good experiences there. Oh I know, seriously! I'm not sure how we managed! Hahaha!

Isn't it? I was just amazed at all the wonderful things that were happening!

I love how excited Jacob is in the video...it really shows how much he was looking forward to this vacation.

Mmm disney salads are always so yummy, as are mickey rice crispies, although I'm super glad to hear that cupcakeS will be coming up in later updates because i'm heard the ones at the Contemporary are to die for!

Wow the world's most amazing room upgrade and then 7 fastpasses? I can already see why you titled your trip report what you did and it's only just begun.

I can't wait to hear more

And at this point I haven't actually decided if i'm going to do a TR or not because I know how time consuming they truly are, and I'm just scared that i'd end up being one of those people who never finishes hers, plus I don't think mine could ever live up to people's like yours who I seriously love reading..but hmmm I will have to think about it
Aww, thank you! That makes me so happy!

Oh my goodness, I know! It was so cute. He really was SO excited! (The part I cut out of the video was MY excitement because it just wasn't as cute. HAHAH.)

They are! Oh my gosh, yes. They really, really are. I actually don't think it's fair that I don't have access to them on the regular. SIGH.

Hahah I know! Isn't it crazy?! The pixie dust was in full force!

Well, that's true. It is definitely time consuming, and 17 nights would be a lot to take on... but I'm betting if you did it, yours would be great!!! Let me know what you decide, because if you do one I'll definitely read it!

AHH the CR! I'm so obsessed with that resort right now! Just for fun, I checked how much it would be to stay there in November with Free Dining...not good...I mean, not even for a split stay! Oh well, someday!

I've never eaten at the Contempo Cafe, but I did drag Brandon there one one of our recent trips because I heard they had some amazing cupcakes there. Why I made him go there and didn't get a cupcake, I don't know, but I know I want to go back! Oh and I like the touch screens you order on...I'm so easily amused!

Wow, I cannot believe your first day was so full of pixie dust, all of those FP"s from a stranger! Amazing!!!
Thank you!! I can't imagine it either! Hahah but I got to eat there so I was close enough!

I'm glad you are because it's wonderful! Aww! Well, you're still doing BLT in the winter, right??

GIRL! You didn't get one?! OH my gosh. Honestly you MUST get one if you visit the resort in November! Tell Brandon you want to see the gingerbread tree and then 'while you're there, might as well go check out the Contempo.' HAHA. But really. Get one. OH MY GOSH THEY'RE SO GOOD.

Haha believe me, I'm easily amused as well. I was happy to be in charge of the ordering because I've always been fascinated with touch screens and key boards. WEIRDO!

I KNOW. I mean, she could have easily given them to someone else! We were so grateful for them and definitely put them to good use!

Your meal from Contempo Cafe sounds good!! Wawa has the touch screen ordering too, but I agree, anywhere at Disney ranks above that in awesomeness too!

How cool that that woman gave you guys those magic FP's!!!
Darn that 5-legged goat! My sister actually questioned by sanity, because she was just certain I'd made it up. SIGH.

It was! OH, good point! I have a Sheetz literally right down the street from me, so I go there more often than Wawa, but now that you mention it, I definitely remember that Wawa has them too! I love them hahah.

I know right?? It was so amazing!

Yay for drink mugs! I can't wait to see where you were going after this and for dinner!!!! Also, now I REALLY want a mickey rice krispie. Like right now!!

Pretty sure ya'll have already had a Gallon of Pixie Dust with this room upgrade and now those FP!! Can't wait to see what else....
Thank you! Hahah yeah, he was so excited.

It was! Oh my gosh, yes... I really, really hope so!!!! AND if you do... GET A CUPCAKE.

Hahah we love our Disney mugs! I use mine EVERY SINGLE DAY as a water cup! YAY, I can't wait to share! Hahha I understand... I could go for one myself!

Right? Gallon was not the best word choice, but that's what came out of my mouth! HAHAHA.

I love the contempo cafe. The food is so yummy.

Cute pictures of the outside fun stuff.

Woo Hoo for FPs! That is totally awesome. Your trip is definitely off to a magical start!
I know! Did you? That's awesome! I think it's impossible to get tired of a view like that.

Definitely!

Thanks!!!

I know! I couldn't believe it, it was basically the best day ever!

You are NOT a loser. I was jumping out of my skin with excitement the first time I visited the Contemporary! It was actually kind of a let down for me before I got to the fourth floor, since the rest of it is so plain. Now that I'm older, I appreciate the simplicity though.

I may have to make a special trip over to the Contempo for a cupcake on my next trip. I've been hearing a LOT of good things about them!

Aww, I love that picture of Jacob, it captures his excitement perfectly! I love when people get excited about the little things in Disney, like the mugs, cause I do that too!

Um... oh my God. You were right about the gallon of pixie dust. That's amazing about the fastpasses! This trip sure got started off right. Wow!
YES, seeing Splash was so exciting to me! You don't expect to see it since it's so far back! The entire view was incredible.

The fourth floor is definitely the best, but you're right, I think it's easier to appreciate that kind of stuff when you're older. I love it all, but I don't know if I would have when I was like... 12. Hahah, you know what I mean.

Listen, I would HIGHLY recommend that. I had one from the Contempo (and a taste of another) and one from Starring Rolls... and I have to say Contempo was the winner!

Thanks! He's precious and he LOVES his Disney mug, especially since he was able to get all the soda he wanted with it!

Right? I couldn't believe it. I think it was the best day ever!

You sound like my sister about the monorails. She has always loved them (but really, what's not to love?!). When we used to stay at the Polynesian I think she would want to ride the monorail all the way around to the TTC (to get the monorail to Epcot) even though you can walk from there. haha!

Those rice crispie treats are amazing. Yum!
Well I highly recommend it. It's the best!!

I know!! Hahah! Isn't that just crazy? The view was spectacular. Thank you!

Haha really? Well she has good taste. HAHA we really must be a lot alike, because on our last day we walked to MK, but I was a little sad because it meant one less ride on the monorail. Hahaha, I dunno.

SO good!

Yeah! It's such a great deal! We bought the mugs on our first trip because with the All Stars you're always passing through the food court anyway, so we were excited not to have to spend the extra money on them this time! Well I mean, I'm sure we did, but it wasn't as obvious. You know what I mean. Maybe.

If you'd have been there, I'd have invited you up! All DISers welcome, haha!

It was perfect! We put them to excellent use!

Wow, the pixie dust is just flowing wonderfully for you ... I'm so happy for you and your family! I can't wait to see what other surprises are down the road. Really enjoying the TR so far! And ... it's getting me excited for my upcoming trip, too! Yay!
Yay! Aww, did they? I'm so glad! I love it too, it's awesome. Haha, they're great!

It really was! Aww, thank you! There are some more, if you can believe it!

Thank you SO much. I'm glad it's making you excited, hooray for an upcoming trip!

I adore that view! You guys were so spoilt, but in such a good way! Ah-mazing!

Ahhh the monorail :D I literally wouldn't eat I'd be so fascinated with it! So cool that the contempo cafe lets you do that. The ordering points sound pretty cool too! I definitely need to explore these hotels more, I haven't seen those before!

Mmmmm mickey rice crispies, they are far too good!

Oh my gosh such an amazing woman! Pixie dust was definitely raining down on you that day! Love it! Can't wait to read and watch more
Thank you! He was so excited about that cup, let me tell you! Hahah!

Oh, that's great! Camcorders are so awesome. That sounds like fun! I meant to do that, but instead I got little clips like that one, ahah. But they're fun too!

I KNOW! We really were ridiculously spoiled. We're so thankful!

I know right? You can imagine how "excited" I was about the salad... I barely made a dent in that thing.

Haha they really are!

She was amazing! What an angel. Thank you!!!

The castmember that accompanied us to the concierge floor had a key thingy for the elevators that didn't work. We were worried our cards wouldn't work.. but they did They have the same keycard reader at the CR. It was new as we didn't see that last year.
Yeah, it was just a bit too much for my liking. I'm sure whenever I go back to the Contempo in the future I won't be getting salad anyway.

Weird! Yeah, they must be changing all the hotels to it! It's really cool!

Wow!! That's got to be the greatest room upgrade I've ever heard of! I love the view and to have the extra bedroom must have been really nice, too.

The Contempo Cafe is one of our favorite spots. The Monorail coming through makes it more magical. I can't believe you didn't try a cupcake!

Okay, I finally found some time to stop working or watching Dance Moms so I could get back on the DIS and catch up on my twin's TR! YAYYYY!

I can agree with pixie dust being measured as a liquid. Girl, it's your vacation. Pixie dust is whatever you want it to be!

Here's my issue with Alice in Wonderland- everyone is SO MEAN to her. Like seriously, all of them. No one has a single redeeming quality in that movie, except her cat.

I always get nervous going through security too! I always feel like I will be carrying something that seems harmless to me, but TSA will be like, "Um, no. You're a threat to national security. Now go get probed."

MCO. MAGICAL EXPRESS. THE SIGN. Sorry, I just had an emotional breakdown.

Hahaha you explained the RFID scanner so much better than I did in my update. I was like, "It's a thing you touch your card to. Moving on..."

Okay I think that villa definitely qualifies as GALLONS of pixie dust! That is so amazing! I'm so glad you guys ended up with such an amazing trip. Seriously, I teared up when I thought about it. You deserve it, girl!

By the way, your view pictures litereally almost put me in my grave.

I love all of your Contemporary Pictures, because we were just there a little bit before you! I feel like maybe I left behind some Joni dust that you picked up on your shoes. That's weird, but still.

FREE FASTPASSES? Girl, get out of here with that pixie dust. YAY!

Still reading along...your brother is too cute, That's how everyone should reacted to Disney. In love with the Mickey posters above the bed in your room. Great luck with those fast passes. Hope you used them for an amazing ride. I know I will probably will be running around like crazy to do everything I want to accomplish on my trip but reading all of these trip report I get to experience all of Disney
