    Johnny, you knock me out. That was a very funny and well written column. So tell me, what did the little lady think of the trip? Are you still sleeping on the couch?

    Keep 'em coming.

      I am off of the couch! She absolutely loved staying at the Poly, and it was by far the best experience We've ever had at a Disney Park.

        I did have to enjoy your thoughts about the year of a million dreams when you called it, the year of really good customer service and I agree that making peoples dreams come true is what Disney should be doing every day, not just during a promotion.

          Great report!

          Were there any windows you could see out of in the suite or a balcony? Seems kind of claustrophobic.

            I was going to ask the same thing.

              Funny and interesting report! Thanks!

              I was also wondering about the view from the castle windows.

              I was impressed with the decor and amenities. Unlike the ugly Mickey Suite at Disneyland, I would really love to win a night in that castle suite!

              One line forced me to report you to HUAC and Senator McCarthy:
              "I found it kind of odd that they had installed a killer whirlpool bath, a handicapped accessible shower, a toilet/throne the size of a Buick and yet, no bidet."
              No BIDET?
              Son, you ain't from 'round these parts, are ya? Well maybe Mr. Fancy France needs a fountain to clean his rump, but good ol' Russian TP leftover from the USSR works for this 'Merican.

                From what I understand and the pictures and video I've seen, there are stained glass windows, which let in the light, but things will be blurry.

                    Stained glass did not provide a view (Looking out over Fantasyland), but apparently a window could be opened. Forgive the syntax, my spell check is a bit tempermental...

                        Please write more articles! Your article was based around a subject matter I vaguely cared about but I had no choice but to finish the read in its entirety. I enjoyed your double-fisting and cartmen jokes extensively, excellent writing, really top-notch.

                          Great article, it was lots of fun reading too. I also happen to think you're "spot on" in your last paragraph. Disney should be doing this kind of stuff year-round, it's just good business with very little cost or overhead involved and yields free publicity and has a great return.

                                  never doubt the power of the wide-angle lens! Wide angle lenses are used SO much these days, places are going to start to 'look wrong' whenever they AREN'T used. For those that have been to Paris and done Al's "Footsteps of Amalie" tour.... notice how INSANELY small the cafe is, and how large it looks in the movie. I just bought a wide angle lens for my little JVC camera in Japan... and it's amazing.... it's like having a whole new camera!

                                    Very witty and well written article. I really don't care much about the happenings at WDW, let alone media events that i may never get invited to, but your writing style alone carried the article and kept me reading. I can't wait to hear more from you

                                      I think the hard part about designing a suite out of the Horchow reproduction catalog is that it can NEVER live up to what we imagine it could be up there. The last thing I want to see is modern faucets in the tub, next to period French Furniture, etc. What were they thinking? Movie people should have designed it. Plasma screens and faux rock everywhere. It tried too hard. It felt very TDL love hotel. I'd rather never see anything and imagine what would be there, than have it defined by halogen spotlights and a Kohler tub.

                                        Any pictures looking out the windows of the Cinderalla suite??? I'd love to see that view.
