Who went: Mark
Month of Trip: May
Where we stayed: Caribbean Beach
Where we ate: California Grill at the Contemporary Resort
Mark went by himself as part of a business trip. This is a terrible way to go. How the heck can you justify going on Rockin-Rollercoaster by yourself when you’re over 50 years old? Anyway, there were a couple really special opportunities from this
IBM invited a few of us to dinner at the California Grill at the top of the Contemporary resort. The food was outstanding! We had a private room, and endured the normal sales pitches that we normally get from vendors. Then, they brought out a person employed by the Disney Institute to talk to us about customer service. What an incredible presentation in true special Disney style.
- Following the IBM dinner, they took us out on the roof of the Contemporary to see the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom. The music/audio was piped in and perfectly timed with the fireworks.
- Cognizant took a number of us by bus to a tremendous Italian restaurant near Universal Studios. I thought it would be easy to do an internet search to get the name of this restaurant. Italian, great food, roaming accordion player – there must be a dozen of them.
