Would anyone happen to know a decent grocery store near POR that is open later? The plan right now is for dh to pick up the rental car when we get to MCO and for the kids and I to take Magical Express (they love it!).

We're planning for dh to get the car, and then make a grocery stop for breakfast items, water and snacks on his way to the resort. We land at 8pm so he'll be stopping somewhere between 8:30 and 9:00. We'd like to do it this way so he doesn't have to leave Disney property until it's time to go home. We like staying in the Disney bubble until it's time to go. So the first night would work best if there is something close by or easy to get to on the way

Earning My Ears

Huge shot in the dark here...we just got back from our Port Orleans Riverside vacation. It was a fantastic trip except for a temporary set back in the middle. Our two year old son developed a nasty ear infection and needed antibiotic ear drops. Our pediatrician was willing to call in a script to whatever pharmacy we wanted. The problem was trying to find a pharmacy that had the drops in stock. I spent two days practically crying on the shoulder of the world's most helpful concierge worker because I was so frustrated trying to find this medication. This woman from concierge went far out of her way to help me. I don't know what we would have done without her help.

I'd love to send feedback to Disney about her, because I know how important that is, but in my frazzled state I completely forgot about writing her name down. And, of course, now I can't remember it. All I remember is that she was from New York, she was an older lady-not someone from the college program, her name was short, and she seemed to work the night shift (during the two days, I only saw her there after 5pm.)

I know this a huge long shot, but does anyone know who I am talking about? Anyone there now that would go on a name finding mission? It's not the end of the world if I never find her name, but I would love to give her the company recognition that she deserves.

Thanks all!

Answered my own question. Andre's site recommends the Walmart on Vineland Road so I've downloaded the maps and will set the GPS in the morning

If nobody is able to help you before I get there I can take a look when we check in on Friday

My son got very very sick the last time we were at POR and I know what a huge difference it makes to have someone be so kind to you when you are so terribly worried.

Here's a link to someone who has pictures on their recipe site. They are very rich and decadent but delicious and I plan on abandoning my diet to have one next week

I would bet that if you called the resort and gave a description of the person, the times you spoke with her and the station she was at (front desk, concierge, came out of the back office, etc), saying that you want to send a recognition letter, they would be able to look through the past week's records and see who was on the clock at that time.

Unfortunately, you cannot call the resort directly. You will be sent to a call center that answers as if they are in the resort. It is all about the illusion that you are speaking to the resort.

I had a similar thing happen to me a few years ago, when I was at SSR. Two experiences as a matter of fact. One I knew the name, the other I didn't. I sent an e-mail to them from the e-mail address on the Disney website.

They were able to figure out who it was based on the day and time of day I told them; the circumstances, etc. - they have records of who was working - and they were able to pass along my e-mail to her personnel file. Fortunately, the Central Call Center transferred me to the resort, once they realized how sick I was and needed medical attention for severe bronchitis, so they were able to track down who it was I spoke to....
