    Umm, I am seriously tearing up along with you. I can't even imagine that big a surprise or room (heck 2000 sq. feet is bigger than my house lol). What a special and memorable experience!
    We have been upgraded before (not in Disney) but in Niagara Falls to a Falls view suite with balcony (twice ironically) but I can't begin to imagine how you felt. Glad that Emily caught this on film too, will always have that!

    First off I am very happy you checked out my TR!! That's why we write them right?? So we can share our adventures. :)

    Oh my gosh what a beautiful suite!!!!! That sun room-oh my!!:cloud9:
    I was in tears with our upgrade to CL last year. That is so great that Emily got
    it on video. What a great idea!!

    How did I miss the room reveal post!!??

    Wow that room is massive! It is so funny that no one really told you that you were being upgraded! I would have been confused too!! It is so ornate!! I like the sunroom!

    What an awesome surprise. For the great trip reports you do; you truly deserved the upgrade. I know very highly unlikely but hoping for our honeymoon we get that pixy dust and get upgraded from honeymoon suite to one of the top 2 suites at WL for our June honeymoon.

    I'm catching up a bit...

    First, I completely understand about wanting to soak up as much Animal Kingdom Lodge as possible! They did such an excellent job at that resort and there are so many details to take in. I'm glad you liked it!

    I've yet to have another family on my Photopass CD, but I'm sure it will happen one of these days!

    "There was a leak in my glass apparently... not sure what happened." :rotfl2: Love it!

    As for your fantastic surprise of getting the Admiral's Suite... what a wonderful thing to happen for two wonderful Disney fans! Trust me, you held it together a lot better than I would have! Thanks so much for posting your video - it really put all of us there with you. :cloud9:

    Hooray for Disney pixie dust! pixiedust:

    Thank you! That is awesome that you actually booked the room. You will be in heaven in this room!! I will post some photos of the view shortly. If you have any other specific questions just let me know or PM me and I can send you other photos... I don't want to do overkill here... people get that it's a special suite. ;)

    Hi there! Thanks for coming out of lurkdome! :) Thank you! By the way Em and I will be back in August as well. (19th - 25th) Maybe we'll see each other!

    Hi Marisssa! I KNEW you would know that this feels like with your gallons of pixie dust! Pretty incredible. ::yes::

    Hi momabbate! Thank you so much for your kind comments. Gratitude and thanks goes right back to you for your son. This is my son's first deployment as well. He's there until September-ish. I agree, I love the wonderful words of support. :goodvibes

    Hmmmm, let's see if your daughter's hints pay off.... ;) That's great that she wants to do another mother/daughter trip. How old is she?

    Hi Jill! Thanks for catching up!! It really was beautifully done.

    I wonder how often that happens as well... this wasn't the first time we didn't see our photos that we had taken but at least I usually have my camera as well that they take at least 1 or 2 photos.

    Oh, thanks Emelie!! (Love the name!) We certainly know that that won't be a repeatable moment at WDW. But we are grateful that it happened. :goodvibes

    You seem to have more luck though with being upgraded twice!! You need to check in at YC - you never know!

    As awkward as the video seems to me now, I was glad that we captured our initial reactions.

    Thanks for reading!

    Thank you!! Yes, we are grateful!

    I am so curious as to your D-land trip in 3 months - a Club 33 experience?? Wow!!! Are you a member or otherwise connected? :worship:

    Hi Doreen! You are absolutely correct!! :)

    Since we knew it was an upgrade we wanted to capture the "moment".. even if it was just an extra big room with 3 beds - which is what I was trying to figure out how that would work. ;)

    Hi HubbDave. Thank you! That's great way to put it - a cherry on top!!

    You look like you may be a Beach Club fan!

    Hi there Kristen!!!!! Pretty much that's what it was. We were so excited and thought we need some friends to stay here. You and your frump pals - watch out if you had this room. I can only imagine.... :)

    Hi Rachel. No worries... I think you already had a clue. ;)

    The CMs did play it pretty cool. (Unless you count the gal that chimed in that Celine had slept there.)

    Hi there! Yes, so very beautiful and extravagant! More photos to follow.

    Hi dsnmooner! I was thinking the same thing as we were enjoying the suite... it would be so wonderful for a honeymooning couple or someone celebrating an anniversary or other such celebration to have the room. Not sure why they chose us but I thought, gee when Em marries and honeymooms at WDW (I'm SURE she will) this kinda tops that. Well, except for the fact that vacationing with your mom is no comparison to honeymooning with your husband... well, you get what I mean! :rotfl2:

    I'm sure you will enjoy your honeymoon suite at WL this summer!

    Hi Jenny! You know how amazing AKL is and I had to sign on to your TR because you not only had such great photos but you included the information that I was looking for.

    Thanks for the kind comments! I wish I could sub-title my video reaction and say, ok... I'm not being rude here by walking away from Em and the camera but I just had no words (oh, and the crying began.)

    Have a great day!

    Quick photo update: I will post some photos of the views and a few more of the room.

    More photos to follow....I'm going to post more room photos as I go since that will keep me from posting the same ones over and over again since I'll not remember which ones I already shared.

    Brenda...Wow... just... WOW.

    That video was SUPER precious. Thank you for sharing that. O.. M... G. Watching your reaction and hearing Em in the background taping... I just loved it. :hug:

    And all this time I assumed "NOT the rooms" was going to be a bad thing. Nice swerve there. :thumbsup2

    It just shows that Disney knows what they're doing when they choose who to upgrade. Beautiful! :flower3:

    Brenda... your pictures look great and you guys look like you are having so much fun, I hope that when Jillian, my daughter, is Emilys age we still enjoy hanging out together:hyper:

    We are arriving on August 19th also and leaving the 28th, its our first longer than 5 days trip and we will be celebrating Jills 6th birthday.

    Nice! Yeah, I got the Premier pass as I was over in DLR March of last year, it was definitely incredible, but it seemed to not be as awesome of a place to go solo as WDW was for me, but it was still fantastic. Also, World of Color, I died.

    Now, onto the update! I cannot wait to stay at Beach Club, and your suite is absolutely amazing!! I actually said ‘oh my god” out loud while watching the video, it just KEEPS GOING!! That is absolutely amazing, I feel like the sun room would be my favorite!!

    I may have just browsed through your youtube channel a bit and love the vids with Ariel!! How awesome, also I’m glad you guys got to see Merida with the bears, they are so cute!!

    KristinAnne, I was going to say that, or something close. That suite would be worth staying in anywhere. Can't wait to see more pics. And seconds are fine will keep me from going backwards to see them again.

    My daughter is 20 and had her first baby this year. I only get to Disney every 3 years or so. Next trip is just hubby and me. Three years from then I taking her son. I know they want to do a trip without baby before then. So I get to sit back and plan all these trips out. :banana:
