    As most of you know Dave and i were married in florida last Tuesday we stayed at POFQ but had booked to stay at grand floridian for our wedding night with a MK view so we could watch wishes together. Anyway we had also booked narcoosee's for the meal in the evening married at 5 then meal at 7.20 so we head back from the gazibo wedding and go to check in at GF we arrive at the gate in the car and are given a pass to go in but we take a wrong turning and have to go back around we draw up at the front entrance to be greated by a lady saying welcome mrs green and mr i am going to take you to your room and check you in.
    we follow her as she says i am going to talk you through a few things and enter the lift where she slots a card in and tells us we are to use the card each time we enter the lift. we hit the 5th floor and she is till talking and out we troup with dave's parents and son following on she opens the door to room 4008 and our jaws drop open its a huge suite and i mean huge.........
    she checks us in and gives us our special gold cards and takes her leave. there are 4 ballconies all overlooking MK a tv in the bathroom and telephone also a sauna a dressing room a vantiy area a huge bedroom ( we loose each other in the bed) a living room another toilet and cloakroom area it is massive my house would fit inside it no kidding. we have complimentary breakfast all this on conciege level it really was a dream and something we will never forget.
    we asked at the desk who had upgraded us as we thought it might have been Dave's parents but we were told it was disney who had as the suite was empty and we were a wedding we have seen the price and its $2000 a night peak season its made it so memreable for us :)

    i cant find the pics of the living room at the moment but these are some that we have downloaded

    Isn't that wonderful? I am so happy for you that it was possible for Disney to give you that suite on your wedding night. Really does make you believe in the magic, doesn't it? :yes: :hug2:
