    Has anyone received any additional documentation regarding their Founding Member Status at BLT? We received our postcards with our codes for the online website -- which we created our messages for; but have not seen anything since then.

    Did we miss something? Or is everyone still just waiting? :confused3

    It was a minimum of a 150 points by a certain date ... Feb 28th, 2009, I believe. ;)

    My wife and I just returned from WDW and toured BLT. The Tempo Fountain is completed and the names are already in place. Would post a ton of pic's but have never done this, don't know how.

    How large are the name plates roughly? How many would you say there are in total? Is it relatively easy to find one's message (ie: any sorting?)?

    Actually, that was the original intent, but things changed due to conflicting marketing information. In the end, I believe anyone that closed by February 28th qualified.

    Would love to see pics!:thumbsup2

    We got in on the tail end of being founders. I was excited that we were afforded 2 lines of text instead of the 1 line we received for the AKV tapestry.

    The tapestry turned out great and Im hoping the fountain is even better!:thumbsup2

    Okay I am attempting to include a picture of our tile. They are about 2" x 4"

    okay it seems no matter how I try to attach it it won't go through, sorry.

    The tile itself is a brushe nickel with blue lettering. We were able to find ours pretty easily. There are four rows of tiles that circle the foutain.

    We also got ours today. "framed art piece, highlighted by a copy of your personalized tile." Very cool. I only wish it'd if us a better idea of when it'll be here, since someone needs to sign for it. Other than that, can hardly wait to see it.:thumbsup2

    Way back when we purchased our first set of BLT points ;) we were shown a sample of the tile. I took some pictures of it, just for reference. Note that the size was about the same as a pack of 100's cigarettes.

    We got out card too. We actually got to see our tile in person when we toured BLT in July. I am using a picture of Tempo Fountain as my avatar (look left). I didn't expect to be getting anything else--cant wait to see what it is. Of course I still can't figure out what to do with the huge Mickey figurine I received for adding on at BLT during the Member Cruise!
