Can't wait to read more. That view looks a lot like our view when we stayed in Poly back in Sept/Oct 2003. We woke up early every morning and watched the castle change colors across the water...it was AWESOME!!!

I have dreams like you, no really! Just much less touchy-feely. They mainly happen somewhere warm and sunny....

Best. Trip Report. Ever.

Seriously, I am giddy for you! Congrats on the AMAZING pixie dust! We stayed at Poly in 2011. We booked garden view and they upgraded us to CL TPV! I know we're ruined forever now. How do you top that?????

Can't wait to read the rest. Have a GREAT time!!! As if we need to say that....

Joining in, just found this. How amazing to win a trip, but you earned it after what you went through in a year of waiting patiently for information. Crazy!

Can't wait to hear more, that view is worth whatever mix up there was. Enjoy!!!

another live update for you...

Tomorrow is our last park day.. then we leave on Friday afternoon. I don't even want to think about this trip ending! Right now we're resting a bit before dinner at Chef Mickeys. Tomorrow we are gonna try to do a little MK, a little swimming at the volcano pool & then a couple hours at Epcot... so it will be a full day!

Love the picture of you two!!!

Glad you are having a good time!! Always hate to have the Disney Vacation end. You plan for so long and wait and wait and plan some more and then it finally arrives and you are there and then just as quick it is over.

Enjoy your dinner at Chef Mickey's and your day tomorrow and I look forward to hearing all about your magical trip!

And to that my dh would say, "My point exactly. Why go? It seems like all the fun is in the planning."

Well, I go so I can start planning a new trip.
