    Talking We Won the Dream Suite!!!

    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!!)

    UPDATED WITH PICTURES!!! (See Below)

    Great experience!!! Any pictures? Any idea what was causing the leak?

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    I'm surprised, but then again not. That building has been plagued with floods from the leaky roof for years, with water finding its way down to the Pirates attraction. I thought that there was a lot of roof work done in the Dream Suite build, but I guess they didn't do enough, or figure out a way to keep the roof drains from clogging with debris.

    Wow... hate to say it but in CA we don't always plan for rain! Glad everyone was ok despite the obvious issues cited by the OP.

    I have pictures (they give you a CD with all of the pics they take of you), but I'm way too tired right now to even look at them, let alone post them. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

    As far as the cause of the leak, it was apparently debris clogging a rain gutter. With all of the winds we have had lately, lots of leaves and debris pile up in gutters, then when it rains (which it rarely does here), the gutters get clogged.

    We have annual passes that expire on Friday, so we went this past weekend for a "last fling" We had never even seen the dream squad the entire year, let alone win anything. It was truly a thrill!

    I am super jealous.

    This is super ironic we got onto Space mountain around 9:00.

    I am so jealous.

    I wonder if they have been reparing the leek all day cause where I live which is about an hour away south it has been pouring all day.

    I saw your son! He was looking over the railing of the Dream Suite at . . . I'd say about 3? Expecting to see him in the Mickey car later on, had no idea we had a family that has a member who surfs MiceChat. wooo, what is that? Two so far?

    Congratulations!
    I don't really care about winning the Dream Suite, I rather a Dream Fast Pass.
