How sweet of Em to get everything packed up for you and I'm so pleased you finally took the plunge at SAB

I love your room at BLT and the view is great too

It may sound weird, but I can actually feel the heat and humidity in your photos. Like I said.. weird.

Aww cute "balloon" photo, and Em is clearly strong enough here not to need anyone keeping her from flying away. Had her Wheaties I'm guessing!

Phew... Thank goodness you weren't held up taking a survey or something before the rain hit. Can you imagine something like that???

Holy, I just put that into perspective. Still 6 more nights left. WOW!

Wow, the CM beat you to the room. I guess BLT must have Utilidors.

Haha, you may be running a bit late, but God love ya for still getting some MSEP and other photos on the way. Priorities!!! And no doubt Em just kept on walking, lol.

Your room at BLT really does look lovely Brenda.
You and Em always make resort hopping look a very stress free experience

Beautiful view from your room. Oh how I would love to splurge and do 1BR villas when we travel, but then that would decrease our time at Disney, so that wouldn't be good. I guess for now I'll stick with the studios. BLT is now the only WDW villa Denny hasn't stayed in.

I am eating at CRT in May for breakfast. Very excited. It will be my first visit there.

All caught up!

I enjoyed your solo time in DHS update. Photopass, ToT, and a cookie? Sounds like a super successful morning to me!!! I do love the ones of you with the picture frame, so cute!

We are drawn to Sci-Fi for some reason too. What can I say, it's a fun place to eat! We love the themeing in there, even though the most decent food is the burgers, which you can get at any CS. It's definitely the environment that we go there for.

Nice room at BLT! That was where we ideally wanted to stay in May but it wasn't available. I would love to be able to walk to MK with DS at this age!

Nice wind baby, Brenda! That is one of the funniest things I have read in a while!

Wow - the 9th floor BLT view is awesome - even with the rain! The BLT one-bedroom villa is beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen pics of anything but the studio at BLT.

We have only ever done CRT for lunch, but I’m thinking maybe we should try dinner - it must be pretty neat to be eating in the castle with all the lights lit up outside. Of course, we never get seated near enough to a window to know what’s going on outside! Loved all the CRT pics! And I’m sure that Cinderella was just saying she was glad to see everyone else; I’m betting that you and Em made a great impression!

Very nice room pics!! I have decided though that if I ever stayed in that type of room, the potential to leave things behind when I leave goes up significantly. I was a nervous wreck because I actually made use of the room safe this time and I was so worried that I would forget to take my stuff out. And by stuff I mean a credit card and an Ipod. I left the million dollar jewels at home

I hate being late too... so I feel your pain there.

I just started reading Dean's book I like that I can take it on my lunch break and get a quick dose of Disney magic in the middle of the work day

I loved the pictures of the one bedroom at BLT, they brought back wonderful memories of my 25th anniversary trip. I also loved the fact I could just walk to MK, but coming back if we could not take another step we just hopped on the monarail. Wonderful pictures of the lake and monarail.

The 1 br villa at BLT looks really nice. That laundry room would come in handy to stash the stuff, like suitcases, so they aren't in the way. We've stayed at the BCV's and the extra room in a villa is really nice. I find myself doing laundry when we stay in one of those just because I can. Actually, it is nice to come home with a suitcase full of clean clothes.

The BLT rooms look so nice. I don't think we'll ever get to stay in one although we will be staying at CR's garden wing room in October for our Halloween weekend. Something tells me that it just won't be the same.

Glad you got around the "obstruction" on your way to CRT. I tell ya, that Goofy can be quite reckless with his driving so it's always a good thing when you can walk away in one piece.

Whew! Got out of the rain just in time I'd say! Glad you kept your wind baby safe and dry!
Ooohhh! Aaaaah! I love your room at BLT! The rooms are so nice and the view is awesome too.
I haven't been to CRT in 7 years. I'm trying to convince my group to go this year but I don't think it's working! I'll live vicariously through yours for now!
Getting around MK at that time of day is such a pain! No matter how hard the CMs try to keep an open path or re-route, it still adds so much time onto your journey. Glad you weren't too late, and also very glad that you didn't get scolded! (I also hate to be late, I tend to scold myself.)
Adorable pic with Cinderella!

I am really enjoying your report, though just now getting around to commenting. The Bay Lake room looks really nice. I hate the parade sometimes in terms of how it messes you up trying to get from one place to another. We got trapped in the Emporium one night on our last trip while just trying to get out before the crowd. Glad you all made your ADR though! Looking forward to more.

Hi Brenda!

Long time, no see haha Just found my way back to your TR and I see that you got a thread of the month! Congratulations! I love the little update you put together about that. You are so sweet to list every single one of your readers in one big thank you! :O I was shocked to see my name in that list since I haven't commented on this TR since the beginning. But I'm doing some catching up right now and leave you some more lovely current-update comments for you soon!

Ta ta for now!
