I never planned on writing about my recent trip, but a few things happened that I wanted to share.
First, this trip started with two nights at GF. Over five years ago on my future DIL’s first trip we had a bad experience at AKL CL. In response, Disney refunded two of our three nights in the form of a voucher. I never intended to use that voucher, but this year I changed my mind and called Disney. On Saturday December 10th we checked into Boca Chica 8145
I love the EP area resorts at Christmas so we booked breakfast at A&C. I will say that the service was great but my son and I both got refrigerated breakfast potatoes with our eggs. They replaced them, and we will return. As a former breakfast cook, I know how it happens, but I will pay more attention to items that can be pre-cooked and warmed in the future (potatoes, bacon, ham to name a few).
I broke down and bought Genie+ because my son has never been on Remy and Katie wanted to do FEA. We knew we would not rope drop. I booked FEA for 7pm. When we arrived it had just gone down. To say that I was disappointed at these replacement options is an understatement
I should have known the last night of Josh Gad’s CP performances would be an issue. It was very poor planning on my part. We were not going to CP but at 8pm trying to get to any of the booths (our dinner plan) was almost impossible. At 8:15 I started looking for ADRs in the area. My son and I decided to break our “we are never going to Yachtsmen again” rule, and I grabbed an 8:45 ADR. Like all of our TS dining we shared entrees. At Yachtsmen we order one entree, two extra sides, and shared a dessert. I will say that unlike our first experience, the server was amazing. We were dressed in park cloths, sharing an entree, and she treated us like we were ordering the full menu. We did get drinks, so maybe she understood we were not trying to save money, but we will return. I think this is my only picture
They had started knocking on the door before 8am (I was out walking while my son and Katie were sleeping and we told them 11am. They knocked a few more times (there was no room occupied door hanger) and it seems like someone at the lodge checked us out (when I went to do it right before 11 I received a message it was already completed).
Service should never be dependent upon what you’re wearing or ordering. I’ve had it happen at Il Mulino last January that as soon as the server realized we weren’t going soup to nuts his whole demeanor changed and he was absolutely rude. Unacceptable. I’m glad you had a better experience at Yachtsman.
Still none of the service staff’s business. Unless it’s a pre fixe menu you are not held to any kind of minimum and the service should not change. I know you know this. I’m just soapboxing
I would be FURIOUS and I would let them know that. Both the person on the other side of the door and the manager
