That must be a great feeling knowing your final payment is made and I can not wait to feel like this June, when we make the final payment for our stay there this August.

DQ has five floors of games. Every video game imaginable. The virtual ones are amazing. POTC, Aladin's Magic Carpet and the Jungle Cruise - where they spritz water on you while your rowing! I LOVED the floor with the vintage video games! Donkey Kong, Ms. Pacman, Q-Bert,etc... DH played Tetris and I played this hamburger game (stack a burger ) for hours!! I can't imagine what teenager would NOT have a ball in there.
Sounds like fun! And maybe a perfect way to spend a hot, humid September afternoon on our trip!

More crowds when BLT opens?

We've stayed at the CR on our two previous trips and will be returning between Thanksgiving and Christmas. My main concern is the crowds. As I understand it, BLT will have no eating places and all guest will share dining facilities at CR. Is this correct? When we went, the counter service and Chef Mickey's was always full. There always seemed to be a lot of people in that area. Will it be too crowded to enjoy, with all the BLT guests coming to shop and eat?

Well let's not forget before Bay Lake Tower was being built the 4th floor was always busy with non Contemporary guests eating at the restaurants, looking at the stores and taking the Monorail. I can not count the number of times my family and I have had to wait for another Monorail because the line there was a long line to get on. So while I am sure Bay Lake Tower will make the 4th floor and everything around it more busy, will we see a difference since the Contemporary has always been a busy place to visit.

also remember that, once upon a time, there was a north garden wing with a whole lot of rooms. i don't know how the total number of rooms in BLT compares to what was in the north garden wing, but hey, we lost some crowds before and now we're gaining some back.

That's another great point and thanks for brining up the example of the North Garden Wing, because it is a good one.
