A grownups only getaway to Walt Disney World® turned out to be quite memorable thanks to a lucky upgrade of EPIC proportions! My husband was in Orlando for work and after leaving my kids with the grandparents, I hightailed it down there. We checked into the FABULOUS Bay Lake Tower, at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where I had booked a studio. Here’s where it gets interesting: at check-in, the lovely Dorothy notices we are celebrating our anniversary and tells us to expect a text when our room is ready (since it was only 10 a.m.). Having never received a text, we return at 3 p.m. to get our room number. OK, arriving at Room 8430, our key doesn’t work. So we call them and wait. Then after 15 minutes, hubby heads back to the front desk. A bit frustrating when you are tired and just ready to kick back and relax. Then, you guessed it, a Cast Member shows up to open the door. Holy Moly! I am stunned! Speechless! It’s the Grand Villa…
Video Tour of the Bay Lake Towers Grand Villa:
- Sleeps up to 12
- 1 king-size bed, 4 queen-size beds, 1 queen-size sleeper sofa & 1 double-size sleeper sofa
- Full kitchen
- 4 full bathrooms, including master with whirlpool tub
Oh my goodness, we have won the Disney lottery! I was like one of those people on the home makeover shows that is simply going nuts over everything!
And a final tidbit: take tons of pictures, video, and document this most momentous occasion so your friends and family actually believe you! You’ll have ALOT to document: the villa has two separate entrances on two different floors! Every bedroom has its own balcony, plus the kitchen does too! AND we had a Magic Kingdom® view. Too much, truly, but we relished every moment, believe me. Hoping for another lucky experience on our next Disney adventure And wishing all of you the same!
