Jim heads back to the front desk for more stories from the Walt Disney World hotel.

Last week, my friend Rich Cullen talked a little bit about the procedures as a front desk cast member at the Disney Inn and what the rooms looked like. Today, he continues with his memories.

Jim Korkis: What was the rest of the interior of the resort like?

Rich Cullen: The gift shop was right across from our front desk about 20 feet or so away. Various sundries, souvenirs, beer, wine, snacks were sold there. It was a small shop but it had a lot of things people on vacation needed.

The Summer Room was the only formal meeting space at the Inn. It was small and maybe you could have less than 100 people for a cocktail party. I saw a few luncheon set ups in there. When the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed, I was recruited to facilitate a class in the Summer Room for the cast that worked at the Inn.
