[QUOTE=Pam&Rich;1051671]Hey SG. Just continue 5 hours up the road from the World to Beaufort and eat in the REAL restaurants that inspired Bubba Gump’s. [U]After all, it’s not like the film was shot here or something like that. [/U]:laugh: [/QUOTE]
No Strand for me this year.
Still, you know the reason the film was shot there and not on the Louisiana coast like the story says, is that there is a major outpost of the film industry in Wilmington, so costs were lower.
You gave away your own trivia question, it was so loaded.
The boat is the Jenny.
Off hand I don’t recall the story of how it got to WDW, but I do recall closed highways were involved.
Back to Bubba Gump, it seems there are not one, but two that are far far closer to home, including one on the Ft Lauderdale Beach strip that was once the home of Spring Break (Where The Boys Are) about a block south of the world famous Elbo Room. Maybe I don’t need to go to the one in Orlando, so long as I can talk DW into getting into the car to go out to dinner.
