    I stayed in a Studio last September in BLT. It was amazing. I think it's my favorite deluxe. PLUS you can just walk to the MK. That was awesome. I had a lake view, which was still beautiful. I had breakfast delivered to my room and sat outside on my balcony to watch the sun rise. And at night I could see the Electric Water Pageant. <3

    Oh my gosh everytime I read your TR I have to add something to my Disney bucket list!!! Bay Lake Tower is GORGEOUS!!! I love all the artwork and hidden mickeys, and that view is just phenomenal!! I can totally imagine how excited/happy you must have been- it would be so amazing to look out and see the monorail and Cinderella's Castle- squee!

    Chris and I really hope to be DVC members in the future...I don't know when we will be able to but SOMEDAY! for sure!

    Love the Christmas lights you put up too- bet it was nice to be wearing shorts on Christmas eve!

    Thanks for the awesome "tour" of the room! :-)

    Hi there Jess! I'm a newbie to your review... I was only going back a post or two but I couldn't stop! Your excitement for all things Dis is contagious! What really caught my eye was your room # at BLT - that was our room on our last trip. We've been to BLT 4 times so it is our absolute favorite! The 1st time I walked into our BLT TPV room I literally had a moment - I needed a tissue when I saw the view of the castle from the living room window. And you will always remember the sound of the whistles from the boats on Seven Seas lagoon - so peaceful. :love:

    One interesting thing about Rm 8126 is that there were no bar stools at the island. This was the first time we had had a 1 bedroom without bar stools. No biggie... just odd. :rolleyes: Also, the orientation of the room with the sun setting floods the room with blinding light! Did you happen to notice that?

    I'm looking forward to reading so much more! :banana:

    Like everyone else said...that room is awesome! I think there should be a "like" option after each photo! I love them so much! Do you post your twitter name? I thought i read it somewhere but, couldnt find it. It would be fun to follow you when you go to Disneyland. Not to mention the next trip to Disney World! Thanks for the great trip reports! LOVE THEM! :cool1:

    Beautiful room! Awesome that you went all out and got the Magic Kingdom view. We had a lake view when we stayed, but got an accidental Magic Kingdom view, so it was great. Everyone in our travel party was so jealous. :lmao: Can't wait to hear about your next 9 days. I wonder if we crossed paths while I was down there for New Years. ;)

    I hope you had a great trip! Thank you! And I know, I wish I had those pictures in my room!
    AHH I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I did!

    Thank you! It was a dream come true!

    Haha that's a very good goal!

    Thank you so much! That would be so great - I will document the whole thing for you guys!

    Thank you! I'm still amazed by it all! Thank you! I'm so glad that it had that effect on you haha
    Thank you!
    YAYAYAY I'm so glad!

    Yay that is a very good mental note to have!

    Thank you! AHH the Contemporary is still AWESOME! I do want to stay in the actual building someday... I hope I will get to! TPV is unbelievable - I'm sure you guys will really enjoy it!

    Did you!? That's awesome! I know, that was one of my favorite parts. I could imagine that lake view is GORGEOUS! That's so beautiful - that is exactly what I would call paradise! :cloud9:

    Thank you! Ahhh I hope that all of you guys eventually get to - it really was a special experience! I know, they were all so pretty! Thank you - there are a lot more pictures coming your way!

    Thank you so much! It was beautiful!

    Hahaha that's awesome! It really is! I love it too! I was absolutely jumping out of my skin excited! I literally don't think I have ever been THAT excited ever checking into a Disney resort room. I will always remember that day!

    I hope you guys get to! It really is the best investment! My parents always say that their only regret is not getting it sooner! Because really if you're going anyways, it completely pays for itself very fast!

    Thank you! Definitely!

    You're welcome!

    Haha aww thank you for the compliments! OH MY GOSH THAT'S SO CRAZY! How cool is that!? Aww that's so magical! I'm glad you appreciate the TPV as much as I do!

    Omg I noticed that!!! Because I saw the advertisements in the DVC booklet and my Mom and I were like "hmm that's weird - we don't have bar stools!" I wonder why that is! And OMG yes the sun was VERY bright.. but I think it's that way for all theme park views! It didn't bother me too much though.. I just watched the sunset from the balcony!

    Thank you!

    Thank you! Haha there should! I'm glad you like them all so much! It's PrincessJess508 :) Tweet me so I know who you are and I can follow you back! Yes, the live tweeting will be happening! Yay! You're so welcome - Thank YOU for reading them!

    Thank you so much! I'm so glad we did - it really made the trip! Haha you guys seriously lucked out! That's awesome! Thank you! And I do too - we will have to see!

    Thank you! I'm so glad you like them! I couldn't even get over how amazing the room was! Ahhh I still get so excited talking about it! Thank you!

    Let it be known that yesterday I drove my car into the side of my garage, and the only thing that has been able to cheer me up at this point was when I realized you posted your BLT updates. THANK YOU. I needed this! :rotfl:

    I think it's so special that your first time in your home resort was on Christmas Eve! What a magical Christmas experience! :goodvibes

    AHHH the room number thing...that means something. It must. I'm a believer, girl. ::yes::

    Wow...just wow. That room is freaking gorgeous!

    A BOOTH?! Too much to handle. :hyper:

    That art work is all so amazing! Whoever decorated that room really knew what he/she was doing! The colors work perfectly together!

    YOUR. VIEW. :faint: Jess, I can't even. That is the most amazing view I have ever seen! Merry Christmas to you!

    Awww yay! I love that you decorated for Christmas. That's so cute! And your Christmas nails are great!

    I'm glad you reported on the Brown Derby and showed pics. I have considered eating there a couple of times but I never have gone in and looked around. One of the reasons I wanted to eat there is because grapefruit cake sounds really amazing to me. The main reason is because I love citrus/tart things. Yum!! Most people seem to choose chocolate, but I like sour desserts. And the cake is so pretty!! How does Disney do it?!
    Your new "home" at BLT is a gem! I could feel how excited you were and I was totally agreeing with your enthusiasm! When looking at the pics I was thinking "oh, I would need to sit in THAT chair for awhile and just stare at the art. And then I would need to sit over THERE for a few hours and stare out the window."
    I'm loving the length of this report too. I am happy to have more to look forward to.
    With this report, and your one with Kristen, I am feeling like I just had a great Disney trip.
    Yay Disney!!

    OH NO Joni! You did!?! How did that happen!? I'm so sorry :( That is terrible. I'm glad my trip report could help cheer you up a little bit!

    That WAS really special. I still can't believe how magical the whole thing was. :cloud9:

    Oh my gosh, me too. That was just too weird!

    Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked the pictures! I tried to make sure I photographed everything!

    Haha thank you!

    Aww well I'm glad my review helped you! It is really delicious there and I love the food!

    Thank you! Ahh I really was. It's hard to describe it in words but I was jumping out of my skin!!! Hahaha yes, I tried to make sure I got to sit everywhere! Gotta take advantage of the room while ya can, you know?

    I'm really glad! I'm scared that it's far too long but I'm glad so many of you guys are still with me! You have A LOT more to look forward to!

    Haha aww I'm so glad! Thank you for your kind words! :goodvibes

    Chapter 58: Freaking Out. A lot.
    December 24th, 2011

    Since we had some time, I decided to straighten my hair for dinner. We had a very special Christmas Eve meal planned!

    [​IMG]

    One of the most wonderful things about this particular vacation was that the sunsets were PHENOMENAL. I'm a sucker for sunset pictures, so I took TONS of them!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That Mickey Wreath is GINORMOUS. I love it.

    [​IMG]

    Here is Jonathan laying on his bed. It's actually a pull-out CHAIR. It becomes a twin-size bed!

    [​IMG]

    The sun is continuing to set:

    [​IMG]

    The beauty of God and Walt Disney:

    [​IMG]

    A Christmassy Version:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was getting darker!

    [​IMG]

    I tried to get a little artsy:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I posted on twitter:
    JUST SAW THE CASTLE LIGHTING FROM MY BALCONY NO BIG DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!

    I definitely had a mini heart attack. My parents thought there was something wrong with me because I was screaming "OH MY GOD!!!!! MOM!!!!! LOOK!!!!" But no, just me freaking out. I mean, they probably understood. (this time.)

    I posted on twitter (Again. There will be a lot of twitter action on this night):
    basically if my future husband doesn't like Disney, realistically our relationship will not work.

    Kristen and Lia agreed with me. I mean, it's so true though. I need someone who can put up with this insanity. (and embrace it, himself!)

    I took some more pictures of the Contemporary Artwork:

    [​IMG]

    MONORAIL.

    [​IMG]

    Alright, so at 6:30 pm we left our room and headed to the monorail. We asked a family which floor the walkway to the Contemporary was on, and it's on Level 5! At the Contemporary, the walkway back to Bay Lake is on Level 4.

    The family that we asked was actually from the town that I went to high school in! What a small world!

    After we finished chatting with them, we used the walkway. I took this picture from the little bridge! Our room is the one with the predominantly orange, red, and green Christmas lights in the middle.

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time to enter the main building:

    [​IMG]

    The Contemporary Resort is literally beyond words. I just don't even know how to describe how amazing it is. Absolutely unbelievable.

    I posted on twitter:
    I cannot physically comprehend that I am actually staying at the contemporary.

    I was in denial. In a good way.

    [​IMG]

    We walked over to the monorail station and got on our highway in the sky!

    I posted on twitter:
    It just clicked that I'm going to the Grand Floridian for dinner tonight. I LOVE THAT PLACE!!!!

    Our first stop was the Transportation and Ticket Center, then the Polynesian, and then the Grand Floridian!

    [​IMG]

    We went inside and... WOW. Just... Wow. That place is absolutely GORGEOUS. And it was ALL decked out for Christmas. I wanted to cry. I think I did.

    [​IMG]

    You can see the Gingerbread House!

    [​IMG]

    I seriously feel like I am in a dream every time I enter the Grand Floridian. Even more so on this specific day.

    [​IMG]

    LOOK! IT'S CHRISTMAS MICKEY AND MINNIE IN THE LOBBY OF THE GRAND FLORIDIAN! Please excuse me while I die of cuteness.

    Chapter 59: Narcoossee's
    December 24th, 2011

    This lobby just blows my mind. I had to take a couple more pictures. YOU CAN SEE SANTA!

    [​IMG]

    A closer picture of the Gingerbread House!

    [​IMG]

    Family photo!

    [​IMG]

    I didn't know where the restaurant was, so I asked a cast member. You go downstairs, to the left of the pool, and you keep walking. It has it's own building. Can you guess where we were eating? (Well, probably. Because the chapter title just gave it away.)

    That's right! We were going to... NARCOOSSEE'S!

    [​IMG]

    This was a first time meal for all of us. I read reviews on Disboards and since I got to pick signature meals for the holidays, I decided that this would be one of them! Plus it was conveniently located at a monorail resort! (a very beautiful and elegant one at that!)

    [​IMG]

    We checked in and took a few pictures while we waited for our table. The anticipation was growing!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They called us and we were brought to our table. There were lots of window tables open, and we were lucky enough to get one! Here's our view out the window:

    [​IMG]

    And the inside view of the restaurant:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Going to Narcoossee's was a HUGE deal. I couldn't wait for our dining experience to begin!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Our waiter's name was James and he was awesome. My Dad got along with him really well. He started us off some bread with sea salt butter. It was so soft and delicious!

    [​IMG]

    We also got some appetizers! Mom got a Caesar Salad which was very good!

    [​IMG]

    Jonathan and I split the Lobster and Corn Bisque. Dad got a bowl of that too. That was absolutely SPECTACULAR. The flavor was unique and it tasted SO good.

    [​IMG]

    As for entrees, Jonathan and I split the Filet and Lobster tail. They actually split it for us on two separate plates! It was AWESOME. The steak was fantastic and the lobster was coldwater, which apparently is the best. It wasn't chewy at all, it just melted in your mouth. The mashed potatoes were perfect and the green beans were cruchy and fresh. Splitting the dish made it look like there wasn't a lot of food, but it was PLENTY. I was so full by the time we were done. I never could have justified getting this dish just for myself because the price is ridiculous. However, since we split it, it was more reasonable.

    [​IMG]

    Mom ordered the Mahi Mahi for her dinner. She said it was fantastically done! She absolutely loved it. I tried some and thought it was AMAZING!

    [​IMG]

    Dad got the yellow tail snapped which had QUITE the presentation! I wish I would have gotten a better picture of it. It was the whole entire fish - head, tail, and all.

    [​IMG]

    Thankfully, Dad wasn't intimidated by it. James actually had to explain to him how to dig out the meat and eat it. He said that you couldn't get a fresher fish than that! (He also mentioned that Narcoossee's and Fulton's Crab House are the only two restaurants at Disney that serve lobster! I never thought of that before but I guess it is true!)

    [​IMG]

    Here is the after picture:

    [​IMG]

    We finished up our food and everyone was extremely happy. It was a very successful dinner so far!

    However, the best was yet to come! (I know, how is that even possible? Well... IT WAS.)

    We ordered and had a little bit of a wait until it was finally brought to our table.

    I tweeted:
    My mom just told me I look very sad when there is no dessert in front of me. #disgirlproblems

    She knows me so well.

    During this time, Lia, Kara, Kristen and I were having the best conversation that the twitter world had ever seen. It was about our obsession with the monorail voice guy. And yes, I have it all right here so we can all relive this wonderful memory.

    I started off by posting:
    POR FAVOR MANTENGASE ALEJADO LAS PUERTAS!!!!!

    Lia:
    I SEE YOU'VE BEEN HANGING OUT WITH MY BOYFRIEND, MONORAIL VOICE GUY! For the comfort of others, no smoking please.


    Me:
    HAHAHA I'm going to spend quite a bit of time with him over the next week. But don't worry, he's all yours (;

    Kristen:
    MY??? let's not be selfish. Haha. I decided that I want to be proposed to on the monorail. #btw


    Kara:
    Whoa, I was under the impression that we were ALL marrying the monorail guy Sister Wives-style.


    Kristen:
    sounds good to me but I call giving birth to junior monorail voice man first. #bahah #somessedup


    Kara:
    That's fine. But you have to name him Mantengase or Manny for short.


    Lia:
    You guys are killing me. I <3 you all. AND MANNY ALEJADO IS A FLAWLESS NAME OMG


    Me:
    what a beautiful name. Little manny <3 we will get him a shirt with a monorail on it :-)

    Kristen:
    he's gonna be the cutest (and best dressed) kid EVER.


    Me:
    did you all ever wonder what the monorail voice guy actually looks like? I'm so curious.

    Lia:
    Nothing short of flawless.


    To this day, I am dying of laughter. Manny Alejado is the absolute perfect name of any monorail child. We really need to copyright it and sell the to Disney - THE ADVENTURES OF MANNY ALEJADO: THE MONORAIL KID. My parents probably wondered what the heck I was snickering about throughout our fancy Narcoossee's dinner. Oh nothing, just a little bit of Disney brilliance. Lia, Kara, and Kristen, I love you guys. Thank you for making my life hilarious and understanding my Disney/monorail obsession. You all are perfect.

    ANYWAYS... back to business. IT WAS DESSERT TIME. It took a pretty long time for that dessert to arrive, but let me tell you - it was SO worth the wait!

    We decided to order two desserts to split. The first was one of the holiday desserts - The Snowball! James explained it to us as something similar to the hostess snowball, but WAY better. It was filled with Egg Nog Mousse. It was really good! The mousse had a little bit of a weird aftertaste, but I did like it.

    [​IMG]

    However, it could not even COMPARE to the wonderful, the indescribable.... ALMOND CRUSTED CHEESECAKE! (Enter bright lights, singing angels, a heavenly backdrop, and maybe even Jesus.)

    [​IMG]

    Everyone, this is honestly probably up there with one of the top 5 things I have ever eaten in my LIFE.

    This was so good that it was almost ridiculous. Once again, I don't even know how to accurately explain how it tasted because it was too amazing for words to describe. It was so sweet and soft and the crunch from the almonds was perfect. Wow. It was just unbelievable. We basically fought over the last few bites. I kept scraping the plate after it was gone because I kept wanting one last little taste. I would seriously book a reservation at Narcoossee's solely for this dessert. I can't even believe that something that amazing actually exists.

    [​IMG]

    We wrapped up our FABULOUS Christmas Eve meal, and I was just in a heavenly state. Oh my gosh.

    We settled our bill and thanked James for a wonderful experience. The ONLY downfall to this whole thing was that we could NOT use our Tables in Wonderland card because it was a holiday.

    Christmas Tip #26: Tables in Wonderland has block out days, particularly Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day. Remember that, because I made the mistake of booking my most expensive restaurants on these days.

    Thankfully, Kristen's family used our name as a referral for their Disney Vacation Club membership, so we received a very generous gift card from Disney! So, thank you Kristen's family for paying for our Christmas Eve dinner. :-) I LOVED IT.

    Overview of Narcoossee's:
    Waiter: James
    Service: James was one of my favorite waiters of the trip. He got along so well with our family and he was very knowledgable about the menu. The service really proved that we were at a Signature restaurant! My only complaint was that it took a while for the dessert to come how, however all of the anticipation made the Almond Crusted Cheesecake taste even better! 4.8/5
    Atmosphere: This restaurant is beautiful! I love that it has it's own separate little building from the main area of the Grand Floridian! It is very elegant, comfortable, and has a relaxing vibe. I loved it, and I loved being able to see the castle from my table! 5/5
    Food: Hands down one of my favorite meals of all time. The Crab/Corn Bisque and the Almond Crusted Cheesecake were my two favorite things. They were just phenomenal. The only thing about this place is that it's expensive, but in my opinion it was SO worth it. It was a very special dinner and made our Christmas Eve that much better! 5/5

    We left that restaurant smiling from ear to ear. (and being very frumpy!)

    [​IMG]

    WHAT A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS EVE IT WAS!

    Chapter 60: Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime
    December 24th, 2011

    We made our way back to the main building of the Grand Floridian.

    [​IMG]

    I wanted to look around the resort but I was just too tired. I snapped a few last minute pictures and then we decided to head back to Bay Lake.

    [​IMG]

    Gotta love the little Grand Floridian orchestra:

    [​IMG]

    I posted on twitter:
    The smell of the monorail just.... Oh my God <3 SO FANTASTIC. Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas <3 <3 <3

    [​IMG]

    I will never be able to go on the monorail the same after that amazing conversation.

    We got back to the Contemporary and we took some pictures because it's just a gorgeous place.

    [​IMG]

    The gingerbread tree!

    [​IMG]

    I took a picture of the deer that are in the huge mural! Of course, I forget to take a picture of the 5-legged goat on this entire trip. I'm such a frump. However, I think that he's actually in the top right hand corner of the picture. So I took a picture of the 5-legged goat's butt! LOL

    [​IMG]

    Back to the walkway!

    [​IMG]

    At Bay Lake, the type of material that is on the wall next to the elevator picks up your finger prints. So every drew little pictures. I drew a mickey!

    [​IMG]

    Here's a picture of our pool...... AT NIGHT.

    [​IMG]

    We went up to our room and pulled out our beds. I slept on the pull out couch (to the left) and Jonathan slept on the pull out chair. (to the right) You can see Jonathan hiding under the blankets because he didn't want me to take his picture hahaha.

    [​IMG]

    Stacey was on the TV while I caught up in my trip journal. I posted on twitter:
    I think I have watched Stacey 24 times today. My brother wants to change the channel. I said no.

    He should know the rules by now.

    I posted on twitter (again):
    Laying in bed. Watching magic memories and you. Live. #stillcantbelieveit

    I posted on twitter:
    Holiday wishes from the balcony is a great way to end the night :-) #andwewishyoumagicaldreams

    I went back inside and tried to finish catching up in my trip journal. But I just couldn't do it. Sadly, my throat was starting to hurt a little bit. Oh no. ): I needed some sleep.
