However, they can develop Marvel attractions for Disneyland, so I think they should put Marvel area out there, and a Star Wars land at WDW.
Sounds like a good plan to me !!

Day 1-Part Three

So after our little shopping trip to Downtown Disney, DD was dying to get on the pool at BLT, so we headed back so she could get her suit on and try out the slide.

Some more art in the foyer by the elevator.



Splash Pad





Pool photos





Fire pit









The slide !!





I have to tell you a story about this lady nearest the slide sitting in the lounge chair there. She had on this REALLY tight skirt and these six inch high wedges. At the pool. She was walking back and forth between her chair and the bar and me and these ladies behind me were amazed that she could even walk in them let alone wear them to the POOL. There may have been some snickering. DH said that if she had even so much as passed gas, that her skirt would have a bubble under it since there was no way it could escape. Ahhh .... Brazilians. Gotta love them and the amusement they provide for us.



DD playing some pool games



She loved the pool games !! LOVED them !!!



We hung out at the pool for a couple of hours and then went back up to the room to get DD back into some clothes and get ready for our Chef Mickey’s ADR.

Carpet in the hallway at BLT



I relaxed on the balcony for a bit before dinner and had a glass of some wine we brought from home. I love my Mickey wine glasses.



View from the balcony



When it was time, we headed across the skyway











Come on, Dad !! We are hungry !!





Wilderness Lodge in the distance

BLT is just the greatest thing ever. Okay... WHAT? That Ariel and Flounder art MUST be new because I definitely would have noticed it! MY FAVORITE!

Oh man, these pictures are making me miss this place so much more than I already did! AHHH that beautiful resort and pool and that slide and the skyway ahhhh. Love it. Can't wait to see Chef Mickey's pics!

I know it. We loved it there. LOVED it. Can't wait to go back !!!
The Ariel art was on the first floor foyer of the elevator bank located to the left of the lobby when you come in from the parking lot. If the helps ... LOL

Loved the Build-A-Dino. Thomas Kinkade was always a favorite. I may need to get back into puzzle building for after my ankle surgery. Love the computer but it gets boring after awhile.

One of my favorite things to do at Disney, and pretty much everywhere else, is people watch. You can see some strange sights.

BLT looks like a great place to stay. maybe I'll look into renting points yet.

I now want to move into Bay Lake Tower, permanently. What a beautiful place to stay. I wonder if you can buy recreations of the artwork because that Space Mountain print is awesome!

DD loved the Build-A-Dino for sure. I have been doing a lot of puzzle building in my convalescence. It helps pass the time when you can't do much. Did you schedule your surgery yet ??

I love to people watch, too. But that lady really stood out. Her shoes were absolutely ridiculous.

Again, I highly recommend renting points. Even if you stay at Old Key West, the DVC accommodations are amazing and if you rent points it costs half as much as what Disney charges for the deluxe rooms.

We were so sad to leave. I will say that it is my favorite so far, but we stay at Beach Club in September, so we will see if that wins out. Bay Lake was AMAZING though !!!

I don't know if you can buy copies, but I agree that they were really cool. I love the colors in the artwork. There was a lot to look at and all of it made me feel happy.

I go for a third opinion on monday and then I have to decide from there. I watch my 4 year old granddaughter so I may try and wait a year til she starts school for surgery if I can. I'm hobbling but I'm getting around.

I may look into points. I thought about Old Key West. I like the theming and it is a little cheaper than some of the other places. I need to talk to my husbband again and see what he wants to do. Otherwise I think we are staying at POR.

WPE is one of my favorites at DTD as well. I didn't know there was a build-a-Dino in T-Rex either.

I can say from first hand experience the slide at the BLT pool is great! Hmmm... 6" wedges at the pool.... maybe they were cork and could be used as floatation devices?? That's definitely odd.

Your Mickey wine glass is so adorable! Makes cocktail time more festive!

I love that picture of the MK from window bank because that was what we got to look at all week from our balcony. It was AMAZING. OMG, I miss BLT!

I seriously was in love with all of the artwork. They need to sell it because I want some. LOL.

Looks like a fun time at the pool. I'm glad you had some incidental entertainment from the inappropriately dressed lounger.

I can't imagine putting it off for a year - wow. I just wanted all of my pain NOW. Get it over with so I can get onto the business of healing. I still may need a scope from scar tissue build up. I wanna know what the other doctor says though. Just curious.

All of the DVC resorts are awesome. We have loved them all. So you can't lose. The only thing I can say about renting points is that you get what is available for your time period. You don't always get to chose. It just depends on availability.

WPE really is the best QS place. I am not sure I ever would have known about Build-A-Dino if my DD hadn't sniffed it out.

Yeah - that lady looked ridiculous. It was funny to watch her.

I love those Mickey wine glasses. We always take them. They are plastic, so they travel well.

DD wants a theme park view next time. It depends upon the points for me though. I really enjoyed our lake view. It wasn't as awesome as the theme park view I imagine, but still .... it was very nice.

Yes, the artwork is really awesome.

Thanks. Although, I am a horrible photog. I haven't taken the time to learn to take really good photos. Missyrose here on the Dis has some the best ones. Her fiance takes some super amazing photos. Also, OneTreeHillAddict has some really great ones, too.

DD loved that pool. The lounger provided good entertainment.

So happy you are here and reading along !!

We got them at Mickey's Pantry in Downtown Disney They still had them when we were there last week. I bet you could find them online as well.
