    OMG! OMG! It's started!!!!

    ... though, it just ended when it was getting good! So perhaps this gif is more accurate

    ;)


    In all seriousness though - it is super cool that not only are you allowed in to see the suite but you have an official guide explaining all the details - beyond awesome!

    Oh man, I am so behind! I feel so ashamed. I hope you & your family had a WONDERFUL holiday season!

    Yes, disney needs more buses. There is nothing worse than getting on a packed bus at the end of the night after waiting for one for 25 minutes. I know you have a ton of money guys, get some more buses!

    I'm so adding seeing an outdoor movie to my wdw bucket list. You described it so well, i can't help but want to do that too.

    Aaaaahhhh the tour is coming! That girl has the dream job! I so want to be a plaid in disneyland. I cannot wait to hear more.

    Wow, that Mayor was a really "hands on" kind of guy. :eek:
    It is pretty amazing how you know all these people. What are your secrets?

    And.We.Almost.Made.It.Into.The.Suite...

    So Close!

    I am so excited for you and Em! This special treat could not have happened to two more deserving ladies! I can only imagine how appreciative you were and continue to be!

    The anniversary photo is so cute! I also love the shot of Dean holding his book as a parade float goes by.

    You have such nice connections with the Main Street Gang.

    What is it with Politicians Behaving Badly? When we meet, I'll have to tell you the story of the day Ben and I approached our soon-to-be mayor on Election Day and my son called him "Daddy"

    :blush:

    Great purse, and I hope whenever you use it you remember that glorious day!

    I can't wait to read more about the Dream Suite!

    Ah! Finally the main event! I have been quietly reading, waiting for the tour. As a WDW veteran this is an experience beyond compare! I'm soooo jealous. I know it doesn't matter, especially after this tour, but do you ever experience the attractions?? Lol! Great D&B too. I have had my eye on several but haven't bought one yet, I almost did when I was at DLR this summer. P.S. Disney Legend Dorthea. Redmond designed the castle mural.

    I don't get to comment too much on the DISboards on other TRs (or so it seems with how busy I have been lately!), but I've been meaning to read your TRs FOREVER because I've seen you comment on some other TRs here in the DIS (like my dear friend Rob's)... SO that being said, I've gone back and read a bunch of your stuff and just started reading this one!

    You have had some AMAZING memories in Disney parks! Seriously! That Captain's Room at the YC?! Unreal. TOURING THE DREAM SUITE?! No big deal, haha. I love reading about it all though, seriously!

    Just wanted to pop in though and say how much I am enjoying reading this TR and have enjoyed your past ones! :goodvibes

    So excited for the next update. I'm going to start calling you Mrs. Mayor...he sure does like you :)

    I'm so happy for you and Em to get to enjoy this wonderful experience.

    Oh it's not nothing, you have ponchos to use another time (if you remember to pack them), an extra umbrella that can live in your suitcase should you need it for travel and one always needs another pair of flip flops.

    :rotfl:

    That's hysterical. You will be amused when you read about Jeff's rain jacket jaunt from this past trip.

    the 12th one could be the ultimate GOOD one though, right?

    Princess Brenda you shall be. Less odd had it been over the phone but pretty weird given that it was a live interaction and she was younger. You must have just been oozing princess qualities of some sort.

    :rotfl:

    It may be one of the best, if not the best, in the WS...such a different view since you are low and on the water.

    We had that issue this trip. Not that I necessarily thought it was EMH, or had even checked a thing, or park hours but it was the holiday week and in general all hours were late. 9pm closure caught us very much off guard. Of course this is all because we went OFF PLAN..:rotfl: It did make me double check park hours after that though!

    I don't think it's silly at all! Many of the best moments are the unscheduled, unplanned spontaneous little ones.

    Shame on me is right. I confess to following no dining reviews these days, someday, in my dreams, when I am caught up on my subscriptions...then maybe. I really love them though!

    Me too. Because you can never have too many pictures of coffee on the balcony, right?

    I'm not sure hats should be off. :lmao: It's really only to mildly justify the pure gluttony that surrounds the rest of the trip. We managed 2, only 2 runs total this trip...over 10 days. Didn't make a dent in the gluttony!

    However if you do ever decide to attempt it, it is awfully pretty if you figure out a good route! In August though? BLEH, I'd have hit the gym. December was wacky, our first run was 44 degrees out I think (real feel of 39). That was at Boardwalk. I'm wearing a fleece that I'd never planned to run in, and my running gloves which I'd luckily brought for NYE as the forecast looked chilly. A guy goes blazing past me (I am slow) saying "I never thought I'd need my runnning gloves at Disney". :rotfl: Then, 2 days later, at Saratoga it was 70 (with 75% humidity) when we went out to run. I'd worn a tee and really wished I'd chosen a tank.

    Crazy!

    SO much to say about your MK morning prior to the tour I can't even begin to quote. Magic after magic after magic. BOY does the Mayor have his eye on you! I love your Dooney bag, what a perfect reason to pick that print and layout

    It appears I returned to the DIS just in time - OH MY GOODNESS, YOU GOT TO TOUR THE DREAM SUITE!!! :dance3:

    I'm all caught up on your trip and dining reports, and will remain on the edge of my seat with the rest of the crowd for your next post(s)! So exciting! :goodvibes

    So excited for the next update.

    Hi there everyone! I have a few comments to get through...:rolleyes1 and then I'll pick this back up and get the next part updated. Who knew there would be so much interest in what is behind that little door! :rotfl2:

    My apologies for posting and then disappearing. I do have an excuse. I took the day off work yesterday because we got new carpet both upstairs and downstairs. And if that wasn't enough, at 1pm in the afternoon I suckered my DH into painting the living room with me. Needless to say I've been getting my house back in order and catching up at work today so I've been very busy for the last 48 hours.

    I have read through all the comments and want to say THANK YOU :thanks: to everyone that has let me know you are following along even if this was your first time dropping by. Seriously, thank you. :goodvibes

    Similar to what we've all heard with air travel, 'You have your choice in reading TRs and I thank you for stopping by mine.' :)


    Hi Mary Ellen! It was an experience that we'll never forget but we were so blessed to even have someone think to ask on our behalf.

    Thanks and I think if I had been coherent I may have stopped myself from making that purchase. The bag is a nice little remembrance of the day.

    Thanks D~!

    Ha ha! I have several photos of Dean interacting with Barb on Main Street and chose that one! It was funny though seeing him try to dance like her.

    Oh, I'm so glad that you are enjoying the book. It is easy to read in brief spurts since the chapters don't tend to be too long.

    Hi Wendy! Yep, the Mayor is indeed a smooch guy.

    It took a few moments for it to sink in since we are nobody and we were invited into the DS.

    Ha ha! Yep, Dean was a dancing fool for a moment there. :dance3:

    I think I agree now, I like my little keepsake to remember the day.

    Hi Kristy!! It was a huge surprise bomb dropped on us. NOT like you though who actually STAYED inside there! I linked your TR earlier in my review since I wanted people to read about your experience of actually staying there. That was before you posted all about the party and special treatment with your plaid which made it even better. :goodvibes

    Exactly, I will always look up at those windows and remember... During our December trip I took more photos of the same windows and of the door in the corridor.

    Thanks for reading!

    Note to anyone interested in reading about someone's experience of actually staying IN the DS. Read littlenellbelle's Boo To You and The Castle Suite Too TR linked in her signature. :)

    Every time I read about someone meeting someone that is just dripping with so much Disney history, I just get chills. What an amazing thing to be a part of for so long! God bless these souls that make so much magic for us all to enjoy. I love it!

    Oh..and about your one person wave…I must say, once I accomplished this. I used to work for a video-conferencing company and before the conference is set up, you just see yourself on the video. There was a second or so delay so I very successfully did a one person wave. I was far more amused that I should've been. :rotfl: It's the little things.

    I am sooooo eagerly anticipating your DS pics!! OMG OMG OMG…what a dream come true! I am in tears and we haven't even gone inside yet!!

    A few more replies and then I'm stopping for the night.... I'll be back. :goodvibes

    Hi Shannon! I'm delighted you are here and I'm glad that I discovered your TR as well. It's so funny that many times I focus on my subscriptions and try to keep up with everything and unaware of some wonderful reports like yours that I have completely missed. I've expanded my horizons and I'm following along! :thumbsup2 (It's late, I hope that made sense and didn't sound like I'm a snob. :))

    I really wish that I had "discovered" mother/daughter trips sooner. I can imagine the memories that you are building for Maddie even now while she is still young. That's awesome.

    Certainly! It's a wonderful book.

    Hi Kelli! Ahhh I'm glad you were excited to read. You were probably thinking... Finally! Yes, it only took me over 4 months to get here. And yes, I may have squealed myself.

    Now that you know what is behind that door you won't pass it by without thought again.

    Hi Moira! I'm glad that you chose to come over and read. Thanks!

    No worries, I'm just glad to know you are here and following! :goodvibes

    Thanks Jess! yeah, that was my re-enactment not to be confused with the scene from Home Alone where Kevin tries his dad's after shave. I was definitely going for surprise!! :laughing:

    Oh my! The Mayor likes the ladies and you are cute and young so please be careful. (Don't say I didn't warn you! :rotfl2:)

    There's so many Disney Dooney styles out right now. It's hard not to miss them so if you are having a moment of weakness you may have to stay away from the shops.

    I was a little skeptical about the size of the bag since I prefer a tote where I an fit a lot in my bag. However, it is perfect for days that I don't want to be a pack mule.

    Ha ha! I will try! I have to thank you for reading first! :lmao:

    Thanks, I do like my new Dooney. I over think everything so why not this? I hear you about the return policy. You just never know.

    I know there are different FB groups for people going in certain months and for other group travels. This FB group I don't even remember how it was started or who is the "owner"... In fact, I don't even know who invited me!! If you FB friend me I can let you into our Dis group. (I think! :)) You can always PM me as well.

    EEK!!! HOW EXCITING! To just be like, "Hey, would you like to visit the Dream Suite today?" I can't even imagine how ecstatic you were in that moment! And DARN YOU for that teaser!!! :lmao: Just kidding, I can't wait to see all your posts from inside the suite!
