It's 4:30AM and about 38 degrees here in Denver with a chance of rain/snow tomorrow. I AM FINALLY GOING ON MY CRUISE!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited! I hope to have some great pics of the food along the way. I made the decision not to bring the laptop so I'll be back the 14th and will be able to get started then.

TTYL!

Are you doing the cruise TR on the cruiseline forum? Are you posting dining reviews of WDW here? So many questions!

I'd love read your reports!

Thanks!

Friday, October 5 Departure Day!

After a long night of dropping off the dog, last minute packing, and no sleep because I was "too excited to sleep!", the alarm went off at 4AM so I could make my 7AM flight out of DIA. I gathered all my bags, set the alarm, and went outside only to figure out it was 38 degrees and snowing! The forecast had put the cold and snow on Saturday so I was a little surprised. Oh well, I was headed to Florida!!!!


The temp still hadn't dropped all the way to 38 yet when I took the pic!

Dropped my car off and made it through security with no issues. I decided to stop for a little breakfast before the flight. Stopped at Caribou Coffee for a poppyseed muffin and chai latte.



Muffin wasn't awful but the chai latte hit the spot!

The flight left on time but we had to stop to get de-iced (hey, its only October!) but made it on time to Orlando. I made my way to the ME check in and waited for close to 20 minutes for the bus. The bus stopped at WL, Contemporary, Poly, and GF. Thankfully I was the second stop at the Contemporary.

I walked over to BLT from the Contemporary and checked in (it was after 2pm Florida time by now) Of course the room was not ready so I walked out to the pool area to meet my friends that I would be cruising with. It was hot and humid! Coming from 38 degress and zero humidity to 88 and 100% humidty was a shock to my system!

I hung with my friends for a bit but I was starving and the pool snack bar didn't call my name. I dropped my carry on in my friends room and walked over to the Contempo Cafe for a quick bite.

Knowing we had dinner at CG later, I opted for the Chicken Caesar Salad and the Peanut Butter cupcake. I was doing one night of the DxDDP so I picked up my mug and used a snack credit for the cupcake. I walked back over to the BLT pool to see if my friends were still there (they abandoned me!..not really...one family had a photo shoot at the BW and the others had gone back to nap after taking the red eye from CA the night before). The salad was good...typical Caesar salad...and I refilled my mug at the drink station by the pool bar. I saved the cupcake to take back to the room.





My room was finally ready so I gathered up my cupcake and refilled mug and checked out my room. This was my first time at BLT and I really liked it. This is a standard view studio.






Here is the view from my room.




I settled into the room and decided to snack on the cupcake. It was delicious! The chocolate cake was moist and the peanut butter center wasn't a hard mass like the PB cupcake I had a couple of years ago at Starring Rolls. The frosting was a light peanut butter butter cream. I thought the frosting/filling/cake ratio was perfect! Definitely a hit for me. Contempo also had a Apple Spice cupcake that I didn't have a chance to try.



After eating most of the cupcake, I settled out on the balconey to read and relax. A storm rolled in and the rain was practically coming in sideways so I headed inside and took a nap. At about 6 I met my friends at the Top of the World lounge for drinks. My friend Mic forgot her ceramics over at SSR so we took a quick drive over to pick them up and then headed over to check in for California Grill!

I can't wait to hear about your dinner at California Grill.
