    Or you can stroll or take a boat upriver to POR and eat at Boatwright's Dining Hall if you simply MUST have a sit down restaurant!.

    yep! I had a nice meal there some years ago. To be honest, I'd probably hop on the boat to DTD, more choice but yep you're right, Boatwrights is there in an emergency

    We did have dinner at Boatwright's in ummm..2005 I think and we enjoyed it. I do think the menu has changed quite a bit since then and I don't think it would work as well for us now, but it is nice to know it is there. I don't really mind the lack of a restaurant since we are coming from stays in the value resorts.

    The bar has a jazz singer who's really good and it's easy to spend an evening there

    My favourite thing to do has to be getting a boat to downtown disney. Such a lovely relaxing trip and some of the boat captains are fantastic.
    Yup what Keith said!! It is a lovely boat ride (so lovely that it is my dream retirement job...I want to be one of the captains!). We took the boat to DTD, then a second one to OKW and had a great time at Olivia's. Good food and a really nice atmosphere.

    We have only stay onsite, in moderates and deluxe and it ranks as maybe our favorite place.

    Does anyone know if the boat to DTD is ECV friendly?
