Planning Session TR – Day One: The Planning Session! Part 4

Day one is finally coming to a close! Really, though, it was an awesome day and I’m so thankful for this PJ to help me remember it in the future. Once the wedding’s over I’ll have to print out my whole PJ so I can always look back on our wedding planning time.

SO…once the tasting was over we headed back to the lobby of the GF convention center and said goodbye to Jessica. It was time to check-in at Port Orleans Riverside. We pretty much had the whole afternoon to just get settled in our rooms. Once we arrived we checked in, my parents bought their park tickets for the day at concierge, and then we went to our rooms and crashed. Before napping, my dad and I took a walk across the river and past the pool to the gift shop to get some stuff. I really like the gift shop at POR (Fulton’s General Store) for some reason. There’s just so much activity up in the main building with the Fulton’s, the bar, the lobby, and both the restaurants. It’s a fun place!

We pretty much just spent the afternoon napping in the rooms and relaxing after the busy morning. Ryan and I watched the WDW “Must Dos” that are always on TV in the resort rooms. So cheesy but I love it!

We had a 7:25 ADR at Boatwrights Dining Hall that night so eventually we did have to get up. It’s great to have a somewhat nice sit-down place for dinner right in your resort. We were treating my parents to dinner (thanks for the wedding!) and then we planned to spend the rest of the night at River Roost to see Yeeha Bob’s show!

Once we arrived at Boatwrights we were seated pretty quickly. I’ve seen mixed reviews on this restaurant but I really loved the food. I’m a southern girl (born in North Carolina, live in Florida now though) so how can you go wrong with sweet tea and corn bread?! Just watch out, some of their dishes are SPICY! Everyone’s food was great as was the service.

*I have some pictures from dinner but they are just so huge and photobucket is driving me nuts so moving on...*

After dinner it was time for drinks at River Roost and Bob’s show! We had seen Bob for the first time on our site visit trip and we’ve talked about him like crazy ever since so we were excited for my parents to see his show. He’s really so much more than a piano player, he’s an entertainer! So funny and fun. He recently received the Disney Legacy Award if that gives you any idea of his awesomeness. He actually has it on display up on his little stage. Needless to say my parents LOVED the show and we had a blast. We all had to go up and dance at some point and we even ended up in some sort of conga line. It was too fun.

After his show is over, Bob tells everyone to come up and take a picture with him so of course we had to go up. My dad mentioned we would be here for our wedding in October to him and Bob said to bring everybody and we’d have a great time! So now we’re seriously considering doing a very informal welcome get together for everyone who’s in town two days before the wedding at River Roost to enjoy Bob’ show. I know other DIS brides have done this and it looked like a really good time. We wouldn’t really pay for anything, it would just be a “hey, we’re gonna be here at this time, come hang out!” sort of thing. It’s a lounge/bar so they have bar food and drinks if you want but there’s no pressure to buy everyone dinner or something. I think that would be so fun!


Clapping along


Ryan loves Bob!


All of us with Bob. You can see his award off to the left in the picture frame.

Afterwards we were all super tired (again) so we headed back to our rooms to get some shuteye.

Up next: Day Two - Epcot and Hollywood Studios

Your food tasting sounds like everything was so good! I don't think you could go wrong opting to keep the steak over the pork if it was that amazing.
Maybe the trees had something to do with the topiaries in Epcot? That is definitely odd in May, though.
I am so glad you posted a review of Boatwrights. I had always wanted to try it, but I had always seen such mixed reviews. It sounded like a blast. I may have to check it out next year

I am sooo jealous of your food tasting right now! Everything sounds (and looks) so, so good!

I've never seen Yeehaw Bob's show. I need to make my way over there some time. I hear so many great things about him!

Sounds like you had a really great planning day. Fantastic! Looking forward to reading more!

I loved all the planning session info!!! DF and I got engaged two weeks ago and we have our site visit on July 5th! I simply can't wait!! I have a billion questions to ask the wedding planner Michelle and I'm hoping she doesn't mind answering everything! We're hoping for WP and GF for reception on a week day at noon next summer so I'm hoping we will get something!! I'm going to go back and read about your site visit!

When you took pics of the bride and grooms vestibule rooms..are you able to use those before the wedding?? I had read someone else's report and it didn't mention any dressing rooms?

Hi Lindsay!!!!

Oh my gosh, just got finished reading your entire pj and I LOVE it. I am a fellow Lindsay from South Florida. There is so much I have learned from you, not just about Disney but about South Florida. I moved here about 19 months ago and I didn't really know where to go dress shopping but where you went with all your friends sounds like so much fun - Plus the way they helped you in the store is exactly what I am looking for.

I also love all the info on the marathons. It is on my bucket list to run in a Disney Marathon one day. I am in the process of Couch to 5k and My ultimate goal is at least half a marathon. I am not sure if I can do it before the wedding, because it just might not fit into the budget.

Also I cannot believe you won a photobooth. That's so awesome to hear. I could be going to a similar bridal show so it is so cool to hear that someone has won one. You have such wonderful information and I cannot wait to read as it gets closer and closer to your wedding day.
