Hi, Melissa! Nothing like being almost two months late for your live TR! I haven't been on the RC thread much for the last few months so I missed the exciting news of your trip. Very happy I noticed your link today and so enjoyed your TR! I'm sorry to have missed it live. Really, it sounded just about perfect! Love the photos ...thanks so much for sharing it with us. CR was our first Disney resort way back in 1982 - we stayed in the now nonexistent North Wing. Our room was close to the Tower...I will never forget when we opened the drapes and the monorail glided past...sigh...we were hooked. Although no balcony, from many of the "parking lot view" rooms Space Mountain could be seen, as well as the Train Station and of course, the monorail gliding by. We loved it even more than the Tower, where we stayed the following summer for our first and last 4th of July visit - Oh my, the crowds! We got stuck in the crowds at TTC and did not make it back to our TPV balcony in time to see the 4th fireworks! We were coming back from EPCOT (the first summer it was open) and never expected to get stuck in massive crowds at TTC. Back then when booking a Tower room, either side was a request - we decided not to make a request as we knew we would enjoy Bay Lake or MK view. We we were very happy to have a MK view..but as odd as it sounds, we thought it more of a glorified parking lot view! We must be some of the few who think that - though I have heard it mentioned on the DIS occasionally. We stayed in the Tower twice, but preferred the North Wing, parking lot view. Go figure! Poly became our home, but CR holds wonderful memories - still miss the North Wing...not a fan of BLT because it meant demolishing "our" wing. Well, darn! Sorry to go on...your delightful TR brought back so many cherished memories. So happy you had a wonderful trip!
