Can you handle another trip report?
I haven’t done a trip report for a couple of years now, but since we took over 600 pictures I wanted to share!
We left on Friday, September 14 - took the kids out of school for 6 days. We had been looking forward to this trip for a long time and were very excited!
We arrived at the Port Orleans Riverside by 2pm and were greeted by a most delightful CM named Cara. She checked us into our waterview room (we paid extra for this, mind you) and she told us privately that Cinderella would be sending a birthday card to my DD. Great!!
We mosey off to our “waterview” room and find that we have a great view.
Of the parking lot…the laundry room…and the pool.
This can’t be right!
So off we go, back to the front desk where we are greeted by the most Unjoyful Joy.
What a grouch!!
Us: Excuse me…we were supposed to have a waterview room and all we have in a view of the parking lot, laundry room and pool.
Joy: You can see the pool, can’t you?
Us (me actually): You didn’t really just say that did you?
Joy: Yes I did.
Us: I want to see your manager.
Joy: He’s busy.
At this point my DH compares the POR managers to the Wizard of Oz. Whenever front desk CMs have issues, have you noticed that they disappear into the back room and magically come out with answers?
So this is where Joy disappears into the back room and comes back with a new room number. Magic.
Okay, great….off we go again.
To a room……across the same pool.
Really? You have got to be kidding me.
So at this point it is already 3ish and I am already feeling angry.
We decide to dump our bags, go to the parks and deal with it later. Hopefully and nicer set of CMs will magically appear in the interim.
