Port Orleans Resort [Apr. 6th, 2004|07:57 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Here are the promised photos of my stay last weekend at Disney's Port Orleans Resort! We stayed at the "Riverside" half of the resort (formerly called Dixie Landings) - it's designed after the old River Road plantations of Louisiana. The other half of the resort is called "French Quarter" and is New Orleans themed. Both sides of the resort are beautiful!

Click below to see my photos:

We had so much fun!!!


Okay, off to eat dinner now =)

Lol, I was having too much fun playing with my new camera ;0)

Yeah, man - Disney should give me a commission rate or something.... I plug them a lot! I used to work for Walt Disney World reservations actually (though strangely enough it was back in Kansas City, before I had even visited Florida.....).

Yep! Most of my teenaged years were spent working at Dairy Queen, and then later waiting tables at various restaurants, and then working for Disney =)

Ahem - I was even a manager at Dairy Queen!! Hehe, I made enough money there when I was a kid to send myself to Europe as an exchange student! Both of my sisters and I all worked there (even though we weren't always technically old enough to have jobs, but hey - Dairy Queen didn't care about that so much, lol). It was really rather fun. On and off I worked there for about five years or so!

Hehe, if you're as big of a DQ nerd as I am you might want to check this out - "Suggest A New Dairy Queen Menu Item and Receive a $500 Reward"!

MANAGER!!?!?!?!?! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! I am SO in love with Dairy Queen! I'm kinda bummed that we don't have enough of them here (none located INSIDE Seattle...you have to drive outside of Seattle to get to one). But I noticed on their website that they have listed SEATTLE on their franchise needed page! WOO HOO! I hope someone is smart enough to take them up on that! They could make a BUNDLE inside Seattle (mostly just off of me!)!
hmmm....NEW item??? Hmmm...I have to think about that! My comment would be BRING BACK the Crunch Coating (sp?) that they used to have for the ice cream cones. MOST places don't have that anymore, and I LOVED it. Do you know which one I mean? Plus, I would re-work ALL their items to be as they originally used to be. The Peanut Buster Parfait was much larger, the buster bar was bigger too. They need to get some of these items into the freezer section at the grocery store. I'd buy buster bars from the freezer section! : )
Oops...I've rambled on--told you I was a DQ geek!

Wow, it's beautiful. Note to self, one day I will take a vacation... I've only ever been to Florida once and that was on business and I didn't have much fun. How did you decide to relocate there? DH and I always talk about moving someplace warm/warmer, but financially it seems so out of reach. But he used to live in LA so he always wants to go to CA which is sooo expensive.

I love the white columns and flowers, and I adore the lizard. We have lizards here too actually, but they are few and only come out during June and July. :)

Great photos!!

We decided that we wanted to live somewhere warm - and California was just too darned expensive, lol! I really like it down here - I don't think I could ever move - I love Florida!
