    NNL's Birthday TR

    So, with our recent purchase of DVC, and with NNL's birthday coming up, and when Kevin Yee announced his Magical Pursuit was being held on NNL's birthday, we decided there was too much alignments of the starts to not go to WDW for the weekend. We left Friday evening, managing to get into the resort by 11PM, just enough time to stop for dinner and check out a little of the hotel.

    Our room for 2 nights was a Bay Lake view in Bay Lake Tower. We had to change the last night to a standard room, but it was the same resort, so it wasn't too big of a deal.

    Here are some shots of the room and our view. Bay Lake Tower was simply AMAZING and we can't wait to stay there again!


    We only got a studio, so a small kitchenette; we didn't even use it!


    The bathroom sink was directly across from the kitchenette; a bizarre setup IMO, since the bathroom was around the corner.


    The couch folds out into a Queen sleeper.



    Comfortable bed! Love the artwork too!


    Flat panel TVs are standard now. Our room had a DVD already in it! Hope someone didn't forget it!


    View from the room: Garden Wing and Marina at the Contemporary


    Also a nice view of the resort from here too.


    Hot air balloons in the morning.


    Expedition Everest about dead center with the Tree of Life slightly to the right. From the room we could see EPCOT, the Studios, and Animal Kingdom. Magic Kingdom is on the other side of the resort.

    Coming up: Flower and Garden Festival at EPCOT and Magical Pursuit.

    Re: NNL's Birthday TR

    Ok, here is my views! (We are still trying to figure out how this tandem reporting is going to go LOL)

    We had already seen a sample? room, but it's not the same as being there! The room was small but fine for our needs. LOVED the view and the balcony! Sad that it was already showing some wear and tear (though part of that was Disney's cheapness LOL) My BIG complaint as always: Not enough towel racks!! One IN the shower (was great when my towel fell into the water) and one round one for one towel. But the bed was really really comfy! (always end on a postive note )

    So, after we checked out the room, we went back over to the Contemporary to get a bite to eat. It's great that the food court is open t'il midnight, and with the full menu. I love the walkway between the two hotels and it's also really convientent to walk via the ground floor. We both got flatbreads, pretty good.

    Sorry for the lack of pics - my laptop crashed so I don't have access to the pictures on Jeff's laptop.

    More TR to come!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: NNL's Birthday TR

    Sorry for the delay - stupid work...

    Anyway, Saturday was NNL's birthday, which also included Kevin Yee's Magical Pursuit, so our day was planned for EPCOT. What made EPCOT extra special was we visited right in the middle of the Flower and Garden Festival, so when the crowds became too much, we took a moment to stop and smell the roses, literally!

    Some highlights from the Festival:




    Always nice to enter the old Wonders of Life pavilion when we can.


    The gentle reminder of what the pavilion used to be...everything else is pretty much gone except this mobile.


    Looking outside the pavilion.


    I'm not going to post all the topiaries, just a few, like this Rafiki and Simba.


    Timon


    Pumbaa


    Giraffes outside the exit of Spaceship Earth.


    The front topiary was ENORMOUS!


    Goofy is the largest topiary ever created. He's huge!


    These brightened up the tombstones a lot. They smelled great too!


    The butterfly house was so crowded, but we managed a few shots...


    Love the quilt of flowers with Mickey, Starfish, and dolphins.


    NNL with Tinkerbell in the Fairy Garden.


    Badly timed with sunlight, but this is the Princess and the Frog Wedding Bayou. Too bad they aren't topiary or 3D, but a cut display.

    Up next: More EPCOT, a Magical Moment at the Liberty Inn, and Kevin Yee's Magical Pursuit.
    It's a Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah...Tip for Today!

    Unfortunately, no. We only went last weekend (9-12). We're just late in getting the report up!

    Would have been great to run into you though! Love your TR too!
