I was so excited to get a tour of some of the latest improvements at the Port Orleans Riverside during our last trip to Walt Disney World. Although this was not the Proper Southern Baby Girl's first trip to Disney, it was her first stay at our favorite resort. My tour guide, Louis, pointed out the changes to the lobby. The lobby had been updated and looked wonderful. More and more of the resort reflects the popularity of The Princess and the Frog. I know that our little one loves Princess Tiana. The new rug in the lobby is inspired by her as well. I noticed that the lobby offers more open space with more room for the little ones to roam around while you check in at the desk. The concierge desk on the water side of the lobby had been removed and that service is offered at the far end of the room. New lighting reflects the tasteful changes. I was also impressed by the changes to the Bayou rooms. It had been several years since I had stayed in those rooms, but they do now feature The Princess and the Frog. We have been to the Port Orleans Riverside many times over the years and have always been pleased with the accomodations. This is the first time I have stayed in a resort and wanted to know the name of the paint color in my room, because I wanted to paint my kitchen the same color. All of the changes are tasteful and reflective of the theme of the resort. Once again, if you have never stayed at the Port Orleans resorts, give them a try. We are in love with the grounds and very impressed with the changes to the decor. Thank you Valerie, Kyle, and Louie for your kindness in setting a tour.
I do love that as Southerners we change pronunciation in order to emphasize a point. I was sending a text recently and realized that I didn't type the phrase that I would have said in person. "He was torn up." in other words, he was upset. In person, it would have been "he was toe up." I graduated from an actual university, but I will let you know that my baby was toe up when I ate the grape she stuck in my mouth. Guess I was supposed to just hold the grape there until she was ready for it. Anyway, my friend had been toe up because the Farmer's Almanac had changed. Really, Farmer's Almanac, you do not serve a crowd that appreciates a change in year long weather prediction. Just tell us when to plant tomatoes like you always do. Change not necessary.
