Now all weekend, I have been looking at this picture and I'm wondering if anyone else thinks this is odd...How can such a little cat pack away THAT much food? She does this constantly, she's like a little Hoover vaccum, but I don't usually have pictures of it to remind me just how much food she puts away. Anyone else find it odd?

Nice pictures from the Sci-Fi Dine-In restaurant. It was neat to eat at that restaurant when I ate there back in 2011. It is a good place to have lunch where the burgers were really good.

I'm surprised that Fran has never been through the main queue of ST even at DL. Did she had a great time on the ride?

The pastries look very appetizing at Starring Rolls.

Very nice update.
Fran had only been on the new Star Tours twice before, once at WDW during the soft opening and once at DL during a preview. Both times she used the HA entrance. The one at WDW, is the FP line and while you see the droids, you sort of bypass the real show. At DL, you enter from the exit so you don't get to see any of the preshow.

I'm glad we went there, it had been a long time. I didn't think that Fran could get into the cars because of her hips, but Dana told me that they had tables in the back in case the car didn't work, but it did!

I took my cap off, not sure why she didn't. Oh and this won't be the last time. She said that she didn't throw up, so she'll try it again!

Love the food porn. The pictures at Sci Fi, Star Tours and Starring Rolls might seem non-sequitur but I love the underlying theme for the day......everything with a hint of the Stars!
Cute, I never thought about all the stars! It was a fun meet, and to come home with a purse was even better!

I never thought that I would be interested in these D&B bags. You and Leshaface bought the same one right around the same time and that was the first I had heard of them. I started to notice them at that point, but there weren't any patterns that I could see myself carrying. Now I'm starting to get out of control!

BUT the poor gentleman in the car right in front of us seemed to be having a heart attack, so watching his family so worried for him and waiting for what seemed like forever for the paramedics was awful. It was such a helpless feeling. Anyways I'm not too sure I want to go back again, is that weird?

I'm looking forward to Jenny's update too, what a great photo to tease us with, big smiles on everyone!
What a scary experience! I would be hesitant to go back as well. Hopefully Jenny will show us her pictures soon. She took a lot more than I did and some funny and cute ones too!

Love the red dress. Want that purse!
It was a lot of fun meeting you too! Hopefully we can do it again sometime! Looking forward to your pictures. You were too funny! Cuddling the menu!

So here we were on our way to BLT from DHS, tired and cranky, and oh so ready for some rest. This was one of our best pixie dust moments of the trip.

When we reached the but stop for the Contemporary, the bus was all loaded up, but it was just sitting there. Fran rode over to the front of the bus and asked if they were still taking passengers and the driver said, “Sure.” Unfortunately some of the people had to get up and out of their seats for him to load us. The bus was pretty packed. I remember this now because Fran took this picture of me in my scooter on the bus.



Normally, the bus drivers make you get out of your scooter to ride the buses, but just in case someone can’t or in the case the bus is so crowded. They put a seatbelt around you and strap you in. I was taking pictures of the scenery while we rode the buses. Unfortunately most of my pictures came out blurry.





Soon we were approaching our destination.



We checked in at the Contemporary and stopped by Bell Services to have our bags brought up to the room. I was a little bit disappointed that we were only on the 5th floor, but I didn’t make any requests so what could I do?

I realized that MK view also means lots of afternoon sunlight in your room! I pretty much had to close the curtains to get these pictures.















We got a lot of use out of this



This was my potty.



The bedroom









The shower in the other bathroom



And Fran’s potty



And the lovely bathroom with my tub!

[Continued from Previous Post]

As I said we had a MK view



But this was the reality. That last picture was on zoom.



The bellman brought up our bags promptly. I immediately started to unpack our food items and move in. Fran, having been tired and cranky requested that she be allowed to take a nap. Of course! That’s what I expect and why we have planned four of our dinners in the room!

There was an NCIS marathon running on USA so we had it on both TVs in the Villa. I was flitting about unpacking the groceries and once that was done I did our suitcases. Here I only unpacked about half of our stuff since we knew there was only four days left, so I only unpacked four days worth of clothes. The rest I threw in the wash and packed them right back into the suitcase.

Here is our stocked pantry. Already it’s gone down quite a bit from Kidani.



Once everything was unpacked I started on dinner. Tonight’s meal was Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches a total comfort meal, but there was going to be a twist. There always needs to be mashed potatoes and gravy, but when we were at the store Fran got creative. I was going to buy a bag of frozen corn, but she saw a package of frozen “Creamed corn”. Now on the old Fogies thread we have this joke about “Canned Creamed Corn”, truthfully I will not eat “tinned” vegetables (as PIO calls them). Only Tomatoes, anything else out of a can I find has a nasty taste. Back to the Creamed Corn, I had never tried this delicacy. Surprisingly enough it was really tasty! I have scoured the grocery stores in Southern California looking for frozen Creamed Corn, but alas, it appears to be a Southern or Floridian thing (you know all the retirees down there )

Here was our dinner that night, served family style.



And my plate all decked out.



After dinner we planned to watch the fireworks with the Wishes music piped in. I took a few pictures, but even with the telephoto lens, BLT is pretty far from MK for proper fireworks shots.









Now on the AKL Lite thread there is a tradition that you are supposed to get Zebra Domes and photograph yourself eating one. My first attempt at that came out awful, so here was the second as I had my dessert that night.



And now I’m off to post that same photo on the AKL Lite thread!

Lunch looked great as did the pastries. I love your new D&B purchase. When we stayed at BLT,we had a lake view after we heard that the so called Magic Kingdom views are essentially just parking lot views. We loved our lake view.

You'd never had creamed corn? I agree with PIO, canned veggies are tinny tasting aside from tomatoes which are always a little bit bitter until flavored up. I prefer fresh then frozen and then canned if desperate but the one thing I can't eat are peas. They're little green balls of evil.

Love the instant potatoes and great wine, side by side on the counter. Rare meat with gravy and real butter? Heavenly.

Great Star Wars figures. Where do you display all of your neat purchases?

Did I mention I want that purse? It's the best one I've seen so far. Your sneak preview comes in a close second though.

Sadee and I left after we raided the Main St candy store. We did a ton that morning and up until lunch. I need to get all of pictures uploaded and update soon. We left arm in arm with full bellies and hearts. I love when mixing 2D (now 3D) and 3D friends works out.

I agree, that's a lot of lobster for that little Sunni kitty. She looks very satisfied though.

I still enjoy pics of even a semi full panty.

BLT looks very clean but I cannot get into the decor. I'm trying but it's not my favorite. The points are so high, I won't have to worry about staying there anyway. Do you have to train your eye to look over the parking lot? The fireworks looked cool though even from that far away and especially with the music piped in.

Very nice photos of BLT during your stay. A nice view of the Monorails passing by. The rooms look very spacious and nice to stay while staying on property.

If I do plan on staying on property again one day, this is the place that I want to stay. I have stayed at the Contemporary a lot in the past and after BLT was established, this is my next place that want to stay.

The dinner looks very nice that night and a very nice view of the MK. Nice to see that you were able to watch Wishes fireworks from your room that night.

Very nice update.

Oh, I love creamed corn!!! My grandma always made it fresh from the garden then froze it to serve all winter.

The closest thing I've found is Cope's brand. It's hard to find, but worth it when you do!!! Comes in a little green box.

I guess I'm just used to the warm and cozy, home feel of AKL. BLT looks hard and uncomfortable. Not somewhere I think I'd want to stay. But - your zoomed view was amazing!

Just caught back up.

I love your 'minnie mouse' inspired dress!

Oooh your prime rib sandwiches look delish! I'm not a huge fan of canned veggies either. I do make canned green beans boiled with a can of diced tomatoes and bacon though, so I couldn't taste the 'canned' part of the green beans.

Alison quick question that I know you can help me with. I'm unsure of dates for our next WDW trip, but have been talking about doing F&W in October. If I book a trip with points, then decide that we'd rather go back during Christmas again, is there any penalty for canceling that October trip and using those points in December?

I just had to try the MK view, but I preferred our lake view as well. I suspect though that once the GFV open, we might stay there if we can get in.

Right now all our display cabinets in our house are full. We have a bunch in storage waiting for the new house to be built. Once we move in there, we should have lots of space so that we can rotate our stuff in and out of the cabinets. We'll never be able to have it all out, there is just too much.

There are a lot of things I hadn't had! The points are high, but with our canceled trips I had a lot left!

That's one of the dinners that I had never had until Fran recently introduced me to it. Especially the creamed corn.

Thank you Brett. I really like the downtime in tge resort, so it's nice to have some entertainment off the balcony.

What a great room and I love the picture of the Zebra Dome and you.
Frozen! Not canned!

Believe me it took a lot of tries to get a ZD pic that wasn't severely unflattering to me.

The closest thing I've found is Cope's brand. It's hard to find, but worth it when you do!!! Comes in a little green box.

We. Can't seem to get creamed corn here unless it's in a can. I'll have to learn to make it from scratch. BLT is actually quite nice, I really like how light the rooms are. As much as I like AK the rooms are pretty dark.
