Port Orleans: Riverside or French Quarter? 


I read some where yestereday that some think Port Orleans French Quarter is a nice Disney Resort for an adults only trip.  I have wondered about POFQ but I’m kinda afraid to try it.  I love Riverside so much that I hate not staying there but maybe the French Quarter would be worth a try.  Has any of my Disney readers stayed at the French Quarter before?  Any thoughts or ideas?  If we are going to do this next year we are going to have to start planning soon.  

A Few Random Thoughts

🌸 I have been keeping my reading at the PG level lately but I think I might need a steamy romance pretty soon.  Any suggestions?

🌸 My thoughts are with those people who have had their vacations effected by the huge power outage in the Outer Banks.  I know how excited I am for my vacation I’m two months and how disappointed I would be if I couldn’t go.

🌸 I recently tried ogx eucalyptus mint shampoo and conditioner and I really like it.  So if you are looking for something new you might want to give ogx a look.

🌸 Last night I was going to watch Country Crush on Netflix, I had no idea it was a musical.  

🌸 Have you seen the new Vera Bradley bedding?  I want it!

🌸 I really want a magnolia tree.  My grandma had one and it was her pride and joy in her yard.  I took it for granted but now I wish I didn’t.

🌸 We are starting to price a Disney trip for early next year and Port Orleans Riverside, where we always stay and I love so much, is more expensive than some of the other moderate resorts.  Any suggestions on other moderate resorts?

Goin’ RV’n

I have been watching a lot of that Goin’ RV’n show on GAC lately.  I just love those RVs.  One is better than the next.  We used to camp when I was younger but our camper was nothing like these.  I would love to have one but my dad will not camp.  Actually I would love to be one of these people that buys their RV to travel around the US and live and work in their RV.  I think that would be so much fun.  But since that will not be happening anytime soon I will just sit and drool.  

Disney Vacation Planning 

Not long before our Disney Trip in May someone told me they thought it was crazy how you had to plan so far in advance for a Disney vacation.  Well I think they are crazy.  I love planning a Disney vacation.  I count down till that 180 day mark when I can start booking dinning reservations.  After that I satart my countdown to the 60 day mark (fastpass day).  After that is the count down to magic bands, and then the actually trip.  I find dinning day and fastpass day to be exciting, I can’t wait to see if i can get the restaurants/fastpasses I want and at good times.  If I could afford it I would love to become a Disney Vacation Planner but I don’t have the time, energy, or money.  So I will just have to continue planning my own trips.  Hopefully the planning will begin very soon for my next one.

Looking Forward 

I’m looking forward to being back in the Outer Banks.  It does this Southern Belle’s soul good.  I love waking up to this each morning.  Less than 100 days till I can sink my toes in the sand of Corolla again.  I can’t wait!  Is it too early to start packing? 

My Disney Vacation 2017 In Review 

All in all it was a good trip.  I think we found a few new favorite restaurants while a few fell off the list of “Must Do’s”.  There were a few things I would have liked to see but didn’t, which to me means a reason to start planning another trip.  I got a new Dooney and Bourke purse, three new Pandora Charms, an adorable new coffee mug, two cookbooks, and some great snap shots.  My feet held up with all the walking.  I got to say good-bye to Wishes and hello to River of Lights.  We had a fun time with my cousin and his girlfriend.  I got to see the Flower and Garden show again.  I can’t complain!  

My Disney Vacation 2017 In Steps 

I knew there was a lot of walking at Disney so I made sure to have a working pedomiter for this trip so I could see just how much.  In total I walked over 80,000 steps.  My saving grace for my feet: good shoes, good socks, foot pads, and vapor rub.  I would rub the vapor rub on the bottom of my feet each night after we resturned to the hotel and I think that helped my foot muscles from aching.  I know it sounds strange but I feel like it really helped.  I was not about to rub BenGay on them that would burn too much.
