WOW!! I can't believe how many responses I've had already!! Thank you! Let me get this posted, and then I will answer you!

So let us begin with the first evening!

By the time we sorted out the problems with the room it was getting on for 7.30, and we were feeling the travel, so we decided just to stay on site. We walked down to the Riverside Mill at Port Orleans Riverside, as I had read about the make your own pasta dishes. This looked pretty good up close so I went for it! There are loads of meats, veg and sauces to choose from; I went for chicken, penne pasta, mushrooms, prochuttio ham, and broccoli in a creamy alfredo sauce, with mountains of cheese on top. This came with a bread stick. It only takes a few minutes to make and you can see them doing it. Portions are HUGE! I really, really enjoyed this. Creamy, tasty, and loads of pasta – just the comfort food I was craving. The bread stick was dry so I left that. I give it 8.5/10 (loses a bit for the breadsticks, and found a bone in the chicken!).

MYO Pasta


Tony went for a pepperoni pizza, with some breadsticks and a marinara dipping sauce. He said this was moist and tomatoey, and not dry and gives it 8/10. The bread sticks were a bit dry and get 6/10.

Pizza & breadsticks


Dessert time!!!! No guesses as to what I would have – the one reason I wanted to stay at Riverside! The Magic Cookie Bar. A graham cracker base, covered in choc chips, coconut, nuts and condensed milk, and then baked. DIVINE!!! I ate about half with dinner, and then put the rest in the fridge in our room and ate over the next couple of days. Ok, I ate it the next morning as a pre-run snack, but who’s judging?! Its actually even nicer chilled, so try that! 10/10!

Giant choc cake front, and magic cookie bar


Tony went for the chocolate cake which was moist and rich and gets 8.5/10.

We hadn’t bought the refillable mugs at this point, as we weren’t sure where we were going to end up staying, so the server gave us free cups to use the soda machines, rather than charging us – I love Disney!

And that was our first night – we were very pleased so far!

Coming tomorrow – not a full Disney day . Sassagoula Floatworks for breakfast, starbucks snack, Earl of Sandwich lunch and Tony Romas dinner.

Little bonus picture – on the way to the airport in the UK we stopped for a Krispy Kreme dinner! Yummo!!!

I can't believe what happened with your TA, I am so sorry! Kind of a rotten start, but POFQ is so lovely, and even closer to DTD with a short trip to POR, so really the next best thing!

So sorry about your rough beginning, but POFQ is a great resort so it sounds like a win anyway.
Well I won't be telling our TA until we get some sort of compensation (or even an apology would be nice!!), but we were actually very happy with what hapened! POFQ is our favourite resort ever! We had a wonderful time. If you haven't stayed there yet you will love it - really beautiful and peaceful - just what you need after a manic day in the parks!!
