You might have heard that I went to this little place called Disney World. (My husband was supposed to come with us but the military said he had to deploy. You might recall the post I did on it called The Pity Flowers. My mother was able to come in Tom's place.)
It wasn't our first time at Disney World. We went in 2008 and 2013. (To read those blog posts, I have a Disney World tag.) But it was our first time staying at Port Orleans: Riverside. Before we stayed at Port Orleans: New Orleans and All Stars Music. My favorite of the bunch? Port Orleans: Riverside.
It was gorgeous. I decided to reserve the royal rooms.

Natalie's favorite part?
The headboards light up!
We arrived in the evening, so we decided to head to Downtown Disney. If you stay at the Port Orleans resorts, you can take a boat to Downtown Disney.
We ate at The Earl of Sandwich. I recommend the Holiday sandwich. It tastes like an entire Thanksgiving meal.
I also had to stop at Ghirardelli.
I should point out here that we had the dining plan with Disney World. We had the middle option where you got one sit down meal, one quick service meal (like Earl of Sandwich), and one snack. Plus you got the refillable mugs at your resort. This meant I could fill it with Diet Coke as often as I'd like. (But only at the resort.)
We didn't stay at Downtown Disney long, because it was late, and we were tired. Plus it was crowded. AND we wanted to get to bed early enough so we wouldn't be exhausted for our first day at...Magic Kingdom!
