    We were just at the Beach Club the last week of October, but we’re back at Bay Lake Tower for 8 nights in a 1-BR with a Magic Kingdom view room. I really like the great view. We’re on the 8th floor this time. I’m posting this right after watching Holiday Wishes from our balcony, which is always a blast!

    We checked in on Saturday and had a dinner at the Wave and just relaxed at the resort today. Tonight, we had a great meal at the California Grill. Tomorrow morning, it’s off to the Magic Kingdom. This trip, we also have dinner ADRs for Flying Fish Café, Artist Point, Jiko, and Citricos (for dinner), and breakfast ADRs at Crystal Palace, Kouzzina, and The Wave.

    Of course, there is the Merry Member Mixer on Tuesday at Epcot, and the DVC Annual Meeting on Thursday here at the Contemporary.

    As always, it will be a relaxing vacation!

    Mike, it looks to me like there are fewer icicle lights on the castle this year. Did you think that?

    So, I went over to the Magic Kingdom this morning, about this time:

    Many of the Christmas decorations were up, except for the tree and the decorations over the streets, as they just filmed the Christmas parade on Saturday.

    I took this shot to show how empty it looks without the tree, which should be put up any day now this week.

    To me, this is still one of the most beautiful and captivating sights in all of Walt Disney World.
