You have probably heard me rave about our upgrade in October 2010 to the Grand Villa at Disney’s Bay Lake Tower. OK, so I may have cornered you and chattered WAY too long about this and if I did, I apologize. But the place is so freakin’ AWESOME!
If you didn’t though, I think it’s my DUTY to let you know what an over-the-top amazing time we had there!!! You can read all about it here at the Disney Driven Life: a-villa-with-a-grand-view-abe . Or, better yet, you can see with you own eyes just what I saw.
Although we made a video tour of the property (since I figured this was a once in a lifetime moment), Samantha Brown of the Travel Channel has nothing to worry about-I am definitely not going to quit my day job to pursue a career in TV. Ugh-am I the only one who HATES how her voice sounds? That being said, I had a blast filming it because it made me appreciate being there all the more. And believe me, I explored every inch of that space! From the bathroom TV to the sliding door beside the master garden tub, everything blew me away. I wasn’t surprised though-Disney does everything top-notch and the Grand Villa was no exception!
Oh, and how did we snag such an upgrade? Well, I don’t really know other than we made sure to tell the CM at check-in that we were celebrating our anniversary. I’ll always remember sweet Dorothy at the Contemporary-we even made a point of thanking her a year later when we returned to stay at the Contemporary for a night after our cruise on the Dream.
So what would be your ultimate place to stay at Disney? Or anywhere else for that matter?
