Joining in! Our dates were very close to each other. I was there Aug 3-8! I'm the same way about the alarms in the morning, except mine must end in an 8. How cool that you got to stay at BLT! What a cliff hanger! Can't wait to read more!

Dearest Marissa,

I do not appreciate this cliffhanger at all! Haha, but seriously! Ahhh! I want to see your room and your view and everything that is BAY LAKE TOWER!!

But for reals, awesome update! BLT looks so freaking amazing and we haven't even see the room yet! Those key cards sound really cool!! But I'm amused by small things so ya know!

Too bad the keys didn't work the first time! That seems to happen to me a lot!

Alright...biting my nails in anticipation for the next update!!!!!!

I read your part about the elevators saying "Eleventh Floor" and I'm just dying. I STAYED ON THE 11TH FLOOR. I could hear the elevator lady say it in my head and I MISS BAY LAKE OMG. I seriously hope I get to stay there again. I know it's my home resort, but it still seems unreal!

OH MY GOD I can't wait to see the room! So did you have a 2 bedroom!?

Oh my goodness, way to downplay that all until the very end!! I had thought you got upgraded and then I read your post and I was like "Uh...the excitement was that she found an available room that was ready then?" HAHAHA yes, that part was nice but it wasn't the magic!! POST THE VIEWS, POST THE VIEWS. K thanks.

I am legit obsessed with that doormat now. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it's on sale anywhere. Fortunately (for me) I watch TONS of heist shows and thus am prepped and ready for any, er, situation that should arise while I'm at the Contemporary.

After staying at the Disneyland Hotel, I am in LOVE with the Deluxes. There's a special place in my heart for Port Orleans (but that's almost a deluxe!) but there's just something about the Deluxes. So many little details and such great atmosphere.

Love love love the (exterior of) the Grand Floridian. So gorgeous. Basically I'm obsessed with Disney hotels and would even live in the one with the view of the garbage cans. But NOW I know what room to request in BLT, so no trash cans for me!

RFID = radio frequency identification

I HAVE TO STAY AT BAY LAKE! I JUST HAVE TO!

That's awesome that yall got a room that was ready, but even more awesome that you had an extra room! WOO HOO!

I always am rearranging my purse/bags. Doesn't it seem like junk just piles in there so fast?!

Yay for checking in early! I love that big castle picture on the inside of the door. I love all that modern Disney artwork in there!

Bay Lake is beautiful! I would love to stay there! That door is SO COOL. Like, seriously. Wow a cool door sign AND a fancy key scanner thing! I have to stay there!!!

Ahhhh! The suspense of the room!!

I know I'm probably crazy/paranoid, but those RFID scanners give me the creeps.

I'm excited to hear about the room. It sounds amazing!

Someone needs to explain the process of a cliffhanger to you. When you leave us with said cliffhanger, you then come back and RESOLVE, or finish, or tell the story to end the said hanging off the cliff.

You do not prolong it, leaving me with my feet dangling over the side!

*lol* I will just keep patiently waiting to know what the actual outcome to all this hanging out on the side of the cliff amounts to.

You have GOT to be kidding me? That's really how you leave us?!?!

I got to the end of your post and thought, "Surely she just ran out of room in this post. It's going to be continued right after this one. [Scroll, scroll] WHAT??? She really left it like that?!?!?" Well, if you're goal was having us sit on the edge of our seats with anticipation - check and check! Now on with the report already!

So excited to see what happened!

Hooray! Welcome, so glad to have you!

Oh really? That's awesome! We left the evening of the 3rd... what a sad day.

BLT was incredible... I don't think anything will ever compare to it now!

Yeah, I promise the cliff hangers will stop soon! Thanks for joining!

HAHAHAHA I'm sorry! No more cliffhangers, I swear!

Thank you! The key cards actually were awesome. They were the same as regular KTTW cards but I really liked the RFID entry. It was SO easy! It's cool, so am I.

Hooray! I hope your nails aren't little stubs yet!

What!!! That's awesome! Clearly the 11th floor is where it's at. It's funny, I meant to ask you over twitter which floor you were on while I was there, but I kept forgetting! I guess your room was right down the hall!

YEAH!!!

HAHAHA. I mean, that would be cool but not worth all THAT excitement. What I was trying to do was throw yall off the scent, you see.

I SHALL!

If you need a wingman, I'll be glad to step in.

I know what you mean! I will never stick my nose up at the value resorts, but after staying at BLT... nothing will compare!

I'm thinking this room would be pretty big for the two of yall!

OH RIGHT. Thanks!!

We couldn't even believe it! I can't wait to share!!!

YES. I'm glad you understand! It frustrates me, being such a neat freak!

I love it too! It's all beautiful. And there's so much of it!

Aw, I hope you get to someday! I have a feeling that they'll eventually change all the resorts to that system... but still... haha!

AHH SO MUCH SUSPENSE!!!

Pirate Kate! I have missed you around here!

Hahah I totally get what you mean! However, the good news is that they're just like any other hotel key card! They are made to open your (and ONLY your) door!

It WAS!
