Mrs Happy and I recently returned from a family Christmas gathering at the Yacht Club in Walt Disney World. Because of when and how we booked our rooms, Mrs Happy and I were unable to stay with the rest of our family at the Yacht Club resort on the first night of arrival. We arrived late in the evening and spent the night at the Boardwalk hotel, just a hop, skip and a jump from the rest of the crew. On our late arrival, we were pleasantly surprised to find that our room had been upgraded to the concierge club level. What does that mean? Well, normally it means for about an extra $150 a day you are given access to the concierge lounge where you can enjoy an unlimited supply of hospitality in the form of a continental breakfast, midday snacks and evening wine, cheese, cordials and desserts.
That's a lot of money for a piece of cheese. It was nice though. Wake up. Head down to the concierge lounge. Drink some coffee. Socialize with all the other hootie falooties. I figured we weren't going to make our 9 am agreed upon meeting at the Yacht Club lobby. So I decided to text a picture of my breakfast experience to our waiting family with the message "Club level breakfast at the Boardwalk". Here's that picture of the club level breakfast I had at Disney's Boardwalk Hotel last month.
It was a nice assortment of pastries, fresh fruit and juice. They had all the breakfast carbs a guy could want. Cereal. Toast. Bagels. They had everything you could want in a continental breakfast. A few minutes later, I received a picture text from my brother-in-law with the message "Regular level breakfast at the Yacht Club."
That's funny. I don't care who you are. As a side note, if you love breakfast, and if you ever have a chance to make it to Las Vegas, make sure you get to the Four Seasons breakfast buffet. You'll want to make a reservation. It's expensive at around $30 a person. But it's the greatest breakfast experience I've ever had. Put it on your bucket list of expensive cheap things to do at least once in life. You won't be disappointed.
