I've been a lurker for a while, not posting much, but I have to post this...
YESTERDAY (Sunday, 12/14/08) WE WON THE DREAM SUITE!!!!
My son exited Space Mountain at 9:37 am after sitting in the right front seat in the ride vehicle, and the Dream Squad was waiting for us at the top of the stairs.
The CMs were absolutely fabulous, and the entire experience was absolutely amazing!!
You've read about all of the details in other posts, so I won't bore you with more of the same except...
After we returned from our Midnight tour of the park, at about 2:30 am, it started raining heavily. At about 3:00 am, there were several places where water was dripping into the Master Bedroom. By 5 am, the bathroom was flooded and the carpet was absolutely soaked. Then at 6:10, the cascading water caused a fire alarm to sound...we all had to evacuate!! (Actually, they let us congregate in the hallway until the all clear was sounded).
By 7, managers, engineers, CMs, etc. had all converged on the Dream Suite to figure out what was going on. It was quite an adventure!! Luckily, today is a down day for the Dream Suite, so thry will have a chance to fix the leak and clean up (and dry out) the mess.
And through it all, our concerieges (Chad and Christian) were so great to us, offering us anything we needed, including transfering to another DL hotel. But, who would want to leave the Dream Suite...even if it was a bit damp!!
We had a phenominal time, and want to offer our heartfelt thanks to any and all of the CMs who worked to help make this visit to DL so enjoyable (Josh, Jared, Taylor, Chad, Christian, Lisa, John, Brian and all of the others whose name I have forgotten!!)
