    Thanks! I may have left some fingernail marks on the door jam. :)

    The "2014 Year of a Million Dreams for Disers who really, really, really want to be floored with Pixie Dust" sounds good to me. :thumbsup2

    That's were my mind went. :duck: Shameless!

    It really was! :love:

    Oh, thank you! I'm glad you are reading and enjoying it. :) As many times as I said, "ohhh wow!" I should have just used that description.

    Ha ha! But I love it when I hear your adorable British accent so please don't clam up. (I hope that's not a British insult! :lmao:)

    I'm glad to share the experience.

    It was so very beautiful. ::yes::

    Oh Brenda I am loving these updates with the DS! Your descriptions and photos are amazing, I almost feel like I was there too! What an incredible experience! If I ever become a movie star I will make sure to work the DS into my contract :thumbsup2

    I'm sure the first 60 seconds in the suite was more than a little of that. :)

    Good luck with your search! :thumbsup2

    Thanks Linda! I don't think I captured everything but I tried.

    Thanks Alan! I'm so glad to share the experience.

    Ha ha! Too funny! I'm glad that I could provide some relief from work. I know how work gets in the way of Dis'ing. :thumbsup2

    I'm a big fan of BWV too. We'll be there for the third time this year. All the amenities of home is definitely a plus.... even being able to do laundry. I rarely take the time to do it but I agree... coming home with it isn't that appealing.

    I'm not sure how often they have contests/sweepstakes for the DS. Since it is occupied a few times a month it must be often enough. I wonder what would happen if you googled WDW Dream Suite sweepstakes??

    I like your thinking... you don't stop at the DS in your contract, give you some hot and fresh Mickey waffles too. Now you're talking!

    Ever detail was perfectly done. I just saw a video of the DR on MSN.com here. It had a time lapse of construction inside the DS. Very cool.

    It absolutely was. Just wait until you see the bathroom.....

    Glad I could share and that you are enjoying the tour. :)

    I agree! I want to be a plaid. I don't think they would ever have a grumpy person on that tour. Nope.

    Hi there!! Glad to see you here and reading. :goodvibes

    Thanks, it was pretty spectacular.

    I'm glad you are caught up Kathy! You have been a busy Diser since your return. Those Disney plans are important!

    Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed reading.

    You did awesome with Michael. He's definitely looking forward to September. Just remember, a round of Beverly is on him. popcorn::

    Hi Melissa! I'm so glad that you are reading and enjoying the tour.

    Yes, be sure to put this in your contract! It probably matters if you have a Disney contract. :lmao:

    Friday August 23, 2013: Day 8, Part 7 - Dream Suite Tour Part 4




    Salon or Sitting Room:

    [​IMG]


    The sitting room was separated from the bed chamber by a heavy tapestry type drape. It contained a sofa that converts to a sleeper (the suite sleeps 6) and has a beautifully upholstered red and gold chair.

    [​IMG]

    The floors in this room were wood parquet with a blue, green, red, and flaxen colored floral and medallion patterned rug.

    There are two sets of three panel windows facing north and west. The windows have stained glass inserts that depict the Cinderella story in brief. The set of windows facing west illustrate the castle, the invitation to the ball, and the clock striking midnight. The other set of windows facing north contain the glass slipper, Gus and Jaq with the key to Cinderella’s attic bedroom, and the castle.

    Again, there are so many details to this room and I can’t recall all of them but to name a few, there is a fully functioning telescope in a decorative box, a selection of hard cover fairy tale books, another phone, and a gilt framed “mirror” on the wall opposite the sofa that transformed into a second TV. There are other decorative items that are well themed for the suite scattered around the room.

    As with the bedroom, if you look close you can see the technology imbedded in the room with the electrical outlets and the phone lines and HSIA.

    Fairytale books if I recall correctly:

    Gorgeous, just gorgeous!!! I can't stop saying that!

    was that old time phone functional? so pretty and classic. though Cinderella never would have had a phone LOL

    I saw a photo of those books on someone's post on facebook and I wondered if they were real fairy tales. Thanks for clarifying!

    Thanks Mary Ellen! I don't know if the phone worked, I kept my paws off of it. It does seem rather odd since Cinderella wouldn't be chatting on a phone.

    I zoomed in on my photo of the books and sure enough it is fairy tales, fables, and nursery rhymes. I can't recall what Caroline said about the books but it had some meaning.

    Inserting a Brief Pause here.....

    Today, is Emily's 18th birthday!! :cake: so we will be celebrating this weekend at ......

    A place that has been part of our lives ever since she was wee.....

    [​IMG]

    We'll be staying the weekend at....Disney's Grand Californian Hotel.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks to the great passholder rate that includes a couple extras like a photopass photo and 2 fast passes per guest, we were able to book a room for the weekend. Of course that was after stalking the website since the hotel was fully booked. When a room became available AND it was at the passholder rate I jumped on it!

    We will be celebrating her birthday with dinner at Napa Rose, which will be a first for her. Michael and I ate there for our anniversary last summer....

    And we ate there in October with Smile4Stamps (Paula)

    In honor of this milestone birthday here's a few vintage Emily photos from Disneyland visits past.

    Have a great weekend! :goodvibes




    Pardon me while I wipe away a tear.... :sad:

    I am astonished that I missed part 3 AND part 4 of your tour... I am not sure how that happened?

    It is just amazing though - through and through - the details are just gorgeous. I would have thought the DS would have been bigger. But it's beautiful just the same.

    Bummer that all of the windows are so full of stained glass that there isn't much of a view from them. It would be nice to have a balcony to sit on or something? LOL I guess that would be a little dangerous.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share this with us, I have thoroughly enjoyed it!

    I hope you are well, and I hope Em has a wonderful birthday today!

    D~

    Aawwwww, happy 18th Emily!! I hope you all have an amazing celebration weekend! Enjoy!!!!

    The details never cease. I love those stained glass windows! A functioning telescope? Wow. The things they think of. I always wondered where the suite was too, so thank you for that picture taken of the view from one of the windows. Everything in there is so gorgeous. Can't I just live there?

    Great tour so far! Love all the details in the suite. If I was ever lucky enough to spend a night in that suite I'm pretty sure I won't be able to fall asleep and will want to spend every waking moment enjoying it!

    Happy birthday to Emily!! What a great way to celebrate her bday topped off with Napa Rose! Love that restaurant!

    What wonderful pictures of the dream suite! Disney did such an amazing job on all the details, I'm so happy you got a chance to tour it. I think it would have been the funnest job ever to pick out all that stuff in the suite. Can't wait to see the rest!
