Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort’s food court, known as Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory will be seeing a very lengthy refurbishment. This work will begin on July 11 and will last until sometime this fall. (It appears that it will be November 21, 2016.)

Guests staying at this resort will be able to dine at an alternative location, which will serve dishes such as jambalaya, po-boy sandwiches, gumbo, and more. Don’t worry beignet fans! They will be available at this temporary location too. There will also be a selection of grab n’ go meals available for purchase here too.

In addition, Guests will also be able to head over to Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside and enjoy either the Riverside Mill Food Court or enjoy dinner at Boatwright’s Dining Hall.

Guests can also enjoy in-room pizza delivery, which is available from 4:00 p.m. until midnight.

We’ll make sure to keep you updated on further details about this refurbishment.

As much as we’d like a trip to Walt Disney World to be all play, sometimes the career gets in the way. After begrudgingly pulling out your laptop or tablet, you realize the last place you want to be is cooped up in your hotel room. Where else can you go to concentrate and get some work done?

Whether it be answering email or working remotely, here are some places to set up your make-shift office and get down to business (“to defeat…the Huns.” Name that film!).

The Supplies

If you know you’re going to be working throughout your trip, here are a few extras to consider bringing along for a more comfortable experience:

  • A mouse for your laptop
  • A stylus for your tablet/iPad
  • A keyboard for your tablet
  • Chargers for your devices
  • A power strip
  • Headphones
  • Paper and pen (if you don’t have technology handy)

Walt Disney World Newsworthy Notes 3/18/15

by on March 18, 2015

Well, that didn’t take long!  Usually a few weeks go by before enough little news pieces fly across my desk, but today, I have a full set of fun little nuggets; guess it’s because Spring Break season is here. This time, most bites revolve around fun in the resorts with some little changes and unique events taking place that I think are both important to know, as well as could be a great additions to those of you with Spring Break vacations planned.

  • Over at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, they are testing a situation where Guests will no longer receive a parking placard and will instead be asked to present their MagicBand when entering at these two hotel security kiosks, as well as at theme park Auto Plazas to gain entry.  For those returning to the hotel, they will need to touch their MagicBand to the access gate’s readers. For those wishing to visit a theme park, they simply will need to present their MagicBand to the Auto Plaza Cast Member and will receive complimentary parking. This test is being introduced because Guests now have the option to head directly to their resort room, bypassing the front desk, which is where they would receive the parking placard; this placard will no longer be needed by Guests. One would expect this will become standard practice resort-wide here soon.
