Disney definitely needs to hire us as plaids!! I hear they usually promote from within but I think our extensive Disney knowledge (& wardrobe) should be enough for them.

Oh my gosh, I am loving the dream suite so far!! The flower arrangement is gorgeous. I love how old it feels, like it's been there forever. All of the pumpkin touches are adorable. The glass slipper too, so perfect. I cannot wait to see & hear more!

Oh & yes, we were in the polar vortex over the holidays but luckily we got out before Chicago was referred to as Chiberia! It snowed every single day we were in Michigan. It was so crazy, I haven't seen weather like that since I was a child! I hear it got "cold" in your neck of the woods too. We should have all flew south to Celebration!

Yay we're inside now! I didn't know it was built specifically for that promotion. I thought it was way older than that, but still cool nonetheless!

First, I LOVE that you can't just open the chequebook and buy a night any time you feel like it. I will make sure to include it in my next movie contract though.

I really miss (two) year(s) of a Million Dreams. Best Disney promotion ever. Not that I one anything, but it was still cool.

OK, so there's no Magic Band Mickey Reader to enter? Weird, lol.

OMG I adore that the clock is at midnight. So wonderful considering how few actually ever even see it.

We're almost there...

We're inside the Dream Suite now! YAAAYY!

You're still teasing us all with just the entryway and the elevator... but it's all gorgeous so far! You look great sitting behind that desk. You should tell Disney they need to hire you!

Great start on the pictures!! Can't wait to see more!

I was curious on if there was staff there! I think it would be very awesome to have a night there and a little weird as well sleeping in the middle of a Theme Park! I was going to say an empty Theme Park but I'm pretty sure its never empty with all the work that goes into making MK run every day!

I like the fact that no one can just buy a night there. I think it makes the suite that much more special.

Keep these posts coming, Brenda!!!

Very good tip about negotiating your contract to add the DS I know Neil Patrick Harris stayed there, probably had to do with his Candlelight Processional/hosting the Christmas parade!

I love the pictures of you guys at the desk, and I love the glass slipper and pumpkin touches!

I wasn't aware of the 2007 promotion, sadly, I knew very little about Disney World at that time. In fact, I thought Epcot was a boring museum!? I did love Disneyland but I hadn't yet become an official Disney addict until I started researching Disney World just a couple years ago. Now the hook is in deep and there's no turning back!

Sitting at that desk all day looks horribly boring, when I stay in the suite, I'll be sure to ask the attendant to do lots for me so they don't go stir crazy!

I've become such a neglectful commenter I promise I have been reading though, and as always I'm loving your TR!

All the facts you've included from your tour are great! Thank you so much for remembering/posting them. Also, props to Em for asking the hard hitting question. I've always wanted to know exactly how NPH and Tom Cruise got their way in there!

I'll be diligently watching for 'tour part 3'!

hmm, wonder if they will need to change that policy given that all the movie starts that are reading this TR will now add this request to their movie contracts. Wonder where they draw the line on who can demand it. Like, obviously Tom Cruise can, but what if Tara Reid or Paulie Shore demands it? Maybe they just can get the pig trough on Pirates of the Caribbean

I too loved the (two) Year(s) of (two) Million Dreams! Only promotion I actually won something. Nothing big, but as we were about to "soar" on Soarin' a CM came in and gave everyone special Year of a Million Dreams Ears.

Taught me a lesson that I clearly need to dream bigger though
