"Hijacking Coffee Talk to change the subject"

So tell me about the entertainment at POR. I hear there is a band or a musician or something. Not sure. What different entertainment is there and when and where do we find them.

Is it a comedy show or is it music?

I guess you're new here. "Ye Haa" Bob is world-famous at Port Orleans.

His show is a lively and fun mixture of music, song, audience participation and a LOT of energy - he gives it 120% for about three hours, with only a short break between two sets. There's plenty of humour in the mix, but I wouldn't call it a comedy show as such. He's actually a very talented musician, but his Port Orleans show definitely concentrates on the fun element rather than pure music. His website is www.yehaabob.com.

Over at French Quarter (a pleasant 10-15 minute river bank walk away) Elliot Dyson plays multi-instrument and song jazz sessions, which is a bit less 'full-on' than Bob's show if you'd like some more laid-back listening.

I did not see the Alligator Bayou themed rooms at the Disney web site when i booked our stay in Oct. and to be honest I don't like them. Do we have a choice in what themed rooms we can stay in or don't they have them anymore?
When I booked I just assumed there was only one style room? I choose the garden view ones.

Contact your TA (or Disney if you booked direct) and ask for a room in Magnolia Bend. It's not guaranteed but I've yet to ever have a request not fulfilled.

But, if you take a closer look, it's $45 PER PERSON!!! This is kind of misleading. $45 seemed like a good deal to me - but my family of 4, it would be $180 Geez!!!!

The carriage ride wasn't $45 per person, must be a typo.

You are incorrect, it is a total of $45 plus tip for the trip, not per person. The Carriage ride won't cost you $180.
The cost is $45 including tax for the 25-minute ride and the carriage can hold up to four adults, or three adults and two small children (children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult). You should arrive at the marina area no later than 15 minutes before your scheduled departure time and wait for the carriage to collect you. The service may be cancelled in cases of inclement weather.

Thanks Venom for the coffee pot pics. I may order some stronger coffee for myself. I cannot remember, do the disposable coffee cups they give you in the room have lids?
