Wow.. I'm speechless. I'm not sure you were able to breathe during that tour. I would have been hyperventilating from all the excitement

That's the one! It is so lovely! I'm off on an ebay hunt. Just 3,500 results for Mickey purse. Gotta work hard for gorgeous purses! Anyhow, looking forward to your next update.

Well I didn't accomplish much at work today but I did manage to read all of your TR. I could NOT put my phone down. I know, I'm a bad girl! Shameful!

I loved the many details you've put in it. Reading it has made me all the more excited for our trip in June. We are staying at the BWV for the 2nd time. We just love their one bedroom villa. It's perfect for our family of 4. Plus the in-room washer/dryer has spoiled me. Love being able to head back home with hardly any clothes to wash when we get there. Because who wants to do laundry when you get back from being at the most magical place on earth?! Not me!!

Will be stalking your TR for any more updates of your DS tour. I can't even imagine!! Because I'm not that versed in all things Disney, I have a question. How often do they give away a stay in the DS? Is it just random or is there an actual contest?? Details, please!!

Noted: Never sign a movie contract with having the DS included. And now I'm dreaming of all the #disneydiva things I would also tack on to my contract. Mickey waffles always readily available and hot are mainly what I'm thinking.

I would have died and gone to heaven just being in that foyer. I want that tile work in my home. I am just in tears. That bed chamber…OMG. Gorgeous. I LOVE the fiber optics behind the fire place. Why is fiber optics in fire places and on head boards not a thing in real life? I love how Disney can just literally make anything sparkle. Like the gold flecks in the floor too?! PERFECTION!

Can't wait for the rest!

Wow, that place really is stunning. How amazing would it be to stay there?!

Your guide for the Suite has the best job EVER, how cool to be able to show people the Suite and see the reactions of those that get to see it.

Okay, I did not have a coronary attack waiting for that and it was WELL worth the wait. I'm so woefully behind after having no internet for two days and then busy making ADR's, resort reservations and airline reservations for future trips), that I will NOT talk too much (yes, I know that it s a surprise).

Your pictures gave me goosebumps and a slight tear or two. The Bed Chamber is absolutely stunning, and you can just envision Cinderella and her Prince being there. Thank you for sharing that very special experience with your many followers.

Did I do good with hubby? I guess he didn't like the option of waiting until 2015 to meet his "best friend that he's never met."

Ha ha! But I love it when I hear your adorable British accent so please don't clam up. (I hope that's not a British insult! )

I'm glad to share the experience.

I'm sure the first 60 seconds in the suite was more than a little of that.

Ha ha! Too funny! I'm glad that I could provide some relief from work. I know how work gets in the way of Dis'ing.

I'm a big fan of BWV too. We'll be there for the third time this year. All the amenities of home is definitely a plus.... even being able to do laundry. I rarely take the time to do it but I agree... coming home with it isn't that appealing.

I'm not sure how often they have contests/sweepstakes for the DS. Since it is occupied a few times a month it must be often enough. I wonder what would happen if you googled WDW Dream Suite sweepstakes??

I like your thinking... you don't stop at the DS in your contract, give you some hot and fresh Mickey waffles too. Now you're talking!

Ever detail was perfectly done. I just saw a video of the DR on MSN.com here. It had a time lapse of construction inside the DS. Very cool.

I agree! I want to be a plaid. I don't think they would ever have a grumpy person on that tour. Nope.

Your pictures gave me goosebumps and a slight tear or two. The Bed Chamber is absolutely stunning, and you can just envision Cinderella and her Prince being there. Thank you for sharing that very special experience with your many followers.

Did I do good with hubby? I guess he didn't like the option of waiting until 2015 to meet his "best friend that he's never met."
I'm glad you are caught up Kathy! You have been a busy Diser since your return. Those Disney plans are important!

Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed reading.

You did awesome with Michael. He's definitely looking forward to September. Just remember, a round of Beverly is on him.

Hi Melissa! I'm so glad that you are reading and enjoying the tour.

Yes, be sure to put this in your contract! It probably matters if you have a Disney contract.

Friday August 23, 2013: Day 8, Part 7 - Dream Suite Tour Part 4




Salon or Sitting Room:



The sitting room was separated from the bed chamber by a heavy tapestry type drape. It contained a sofa that converts to a sleeper (the suite sleeps 6) and has a beautifully upholstered red and gold chair.


The floors in this room were wood parquet with a blue, green, red, and flaxen colored floral and medallion patterned rug.

There are two sets of three panel windows facing north and west. The windows have stained glass inserts that depict the Cinderella story in brief. The set of windows facing west illustrate the castle, the invitation to the ball, and the clock striking midnight. The other set of windows facing north contain the glass slipper, Gus and Jaq with the key to Cinderella’s attic bedroom, and the castle.




Again, there are so many details to this room and I can’t recall all of them but to name a few, there is a fully functioning telescope in a decorative box, a selection of hard cover fairy tale books, another phone, and a gilt framed “mirror” on the wall opposite the sofa that transformed into a second TV. There are other decorative items that are well themed for the suite scattered around the room.




As with the bedroom, if you look close you can see the technology imbedded in the room with the electrical outlets and the phone lines and HSIA.


Fairytale books if I recall correctly:
