There are cute round iron tables outside the Sassagoula Floatworks. It is a nice place to sit and much quieter. See this thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....849928&page=50, post #744. On the right side you can just make out the tables outside the food court. I don't know about POR.
Thanks for the info. Had to put my glasses on to see those tables - lol.

Hey Andre,

First I want to thank you for the wealth of information you have on the Port Orleans website. It has helped me out so much!!!!

I do have a question though. The activities guide speaks of pool games at Ol Man Island Pool which is Riverside right?? Do they have the same acitivities at POFQ or should we walk over to Riverside? THANKS!!!

The same sort of things happen at POFQ (including poolside games, evening movies and campfire) as at POR. They don't have Riverside's marina for boat and cycle rentals though, so you'll need to do those things from POR. See the specific POFQ FAQ Thread for more details.

Oh, and I've recently posted the June schedules on http://www.portorleans.org/recreatio...s-schedule.php if anyone's interested.

Good morning all

Does POFQ have a pin trading station? Some resorts have the books that you can look through and trade.

Just wondering.

Andre, thanks for posting the schedule. We don't go until August but this gives me a good idea of what to expect. I've also save the site for when it is updated later.

By the way, can anyone tell me how big the arcades are at POFQ and Riverside? DS likes to relax for a while by playing games if there is a decent arcade nearby. I can be persuaded to play Jurassic Park myself from time to time.

Same kind of activities. As I am typing this, my daughter is watching a video I took of her playing the games at the poolside at POFQ and having a blast

You won't have a problem getting early buses. They start running around 6.15 am. Try give plenty time as if you miss an early bus, they are far less frequent than they are around regular park hours so you could wait 30 minutes, easily, for the next one. We tend to leave about an hour and 15 minutes or more and if we arrive early (which we always do) we just take our time walking around the resort where we have the early ADR and getting some nice photos.

I'm a member of AAA. If I book a WDW room only reservation with a AAA discount can I do that directly through WDW reservations or do I need to do it through my AAA office? If a room discount becomes available prior to our stay can I simply convert my AAA reservation (assuming the booking I want is available) to a non-AAA reservation take advantage of the lower rate?
