Dreaming, Then The Beach Club Day 2


Day 2 Sept 2nd.

Last night we made the decision to try to extend our booking (due to start on the 6th) at the Beach Club for the 4/5th and to try to get our park tickets started on Wednesday instead of Friday, but first we went to try out POFQ food court - Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory - for breakfast. I love Biscuits and Gravy even though everyone thinks they look awful, so I chose that and Russ had an omelette. It's a great food court and in the way out we found a model of the Disney Dream that we should have been boarding at that very minute!
We caught a bus to Hollywood Studios and a Friendship to the Beach Club where it was a lot harder than it should have been to book for the 2 nights. In fact I was 'advised' to book it myself online as if I booked with them I'd only go on a waitlist for a room (despite rooms being available on the WDW site), then eventually it took 'discussion' with a manager to get our tickets brought forward by 2 days - I had to explain that we had 14 day tickets and were only using 12 days, they just didn't seem to understand. Pixie dust? Nah, not today pet.
Another bus ride, this time to Disney Springs where we headed straight to Jock Lyndsay's bar for a couple of drinks, some live music, lunch at Earl of Sandwich and a look in the shops before another boat ride back to POFQ where we put our feet up for a while. There had been a couple of very heavy rain showers through the afternoon but it was still hot.
Later on we had a gorgeous walk along the river to POR for dinner at Boatwrights, another first for us. We loved POR and would definitely stay there. Neither of us were starving so after eating the corn bread we both just had Jambalaya and a drink. Service and good were great. After the meal we had a wander round the store and enjoyed the walk back (it's a mile).

Yes - she said that if she booked it we would just go on a waitlist as people were waiting to hear if there were rooms (to get away from the coast etc). I told her we'd seen availability on the WDW site online and thats when she suggested we do it. I was sat 5 yards away from her in my phone! As soon as i booked she then linked the 2 rooms so we didn't have to move after 2 nights. At the time it was quite stressful but it all worked out in the end.

Lovely day and glad you got things sorted out eventually.

I remember the rain on the Monday as we got caught in it and were absolutely soaked we wouldn't have been any wetter if we'd jumped in the pool 😂😂
