A small update ...

I was able to get into a Double Stroller Swap on the DIS for our November trip.

We'll still bring one of our own strollers along to have help at the airports but this way we'll only have one stroller in the park. ... and as someone said on here, if DD3 doesn't need it then we'll just have more room to put our "stuff".

My parents were able to tour the BLT models and they said the BLT 1BR is fantastic -- very large, lots of counterspace/tables, double shower sprayers, two full bathrooms, etc.

They did not like the colors at all but said the 1BR was "phenomenal".

Now the Studio completely turned them off. They said the bathroom section that has the toilet does not have the sink. And in fact you have to walk down a short hall, around a corner to get to the sink. Then the kitchen area and the bathroom sink are right next to each other, sort of like a galley kitchen.

This doesn't make sense at all...why would you have to walk so much with dirty hands? Wouldn't you want to reach a sink within just a few feet?

Wear?? You mean I have to plan what to wear to the concert?!? Oh, I've become such a mommy...more concerned about my girls then myself.

But you are right...I should work on getting a cool outfit for the concert...suggestions welcome from you all!!

I would wear nice pair of jeans and a form fitting top, ya know, like we used to do when we were teenagers Gotta look hot for ya man

That is cool they got to see it. Did they take any pics they can share with you so we can see

That does sounds very strange about the sinks

Thanks re: baby. We like her so I think we'll keep her

Yes, we are going again -- this is what happens to you when you buy DVC. We were originally going to skip this year to save points but ...

That's great that you were able to arrange a stroller swap!

Jeans and a sexy top sounds just right! If you already have the makings of the outfit, maybe you can splurge on some new shoes!

I'm glad that the 1 Bdr unit at BLT sounds comfortable and well designed. It is odd about the studio. Since they were starting from scratch it wasn't like they were constrained by a previous room size or configuration...

Well, it would be an appropriate saying for a rock concert

that does sound weird about the studio. Glad the 1BR sounds nice tho. We didn't get to do our DVC tour this time. There was just not enough time. We'll have to schedule it for when we are there in December but I'm pretty certain we'll buy into BLT. It looks amazing just from the outside and I love the bridge that connects it to the contemporary

Oh, too bad you didn't get to do the tour but probably better for you guys to do the tour closer to when you want to purchase.

You are almost half way to Christmas so you'll be the first to sport the tree.
