Actually, since the introduction of the new Garden View category, Water View rooms should now always give you at least a swimming pool view, or maybe even a river view if you're lucky. Courtyard fountains are now classed as Garden View.

Can anyone tell me what toiletries are provided at POFQ? Are they a shampoo/conditioner combination and a bar of soap? What brand? What scent?

TIA

I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

They have the dreaded shampoo/conditioner combo it does not work all that well at least for me (I have fine staight hair and it left it tangled) it would work in a pinch but I didn't use it. The soap was okay, I used it to wash my hands and the scent was not overly strong. It appears to be the same as what I got at ASMu two years before.

Congratulations....you are going to LOVE POFQ. It is our favorite moderate. The boat to DTD is wonderful, nice and relaxing, and the pool is fun. DH and I are staying there on our adult only weekend trip starting tomorrow . Have a great time and be sure to write a review when you come back .

Question Grocery Delivery Question

I've been lurking around for a while, new to DIS boards, but have been to Disney once before and we stayed at POR. We absolutely LOVED it there

Now my DD, DS and MIL are headed back in July with my daughter's Dance Studio to perform at Downtown Disney. I am so lucky that the group got placed at POFQ! This is the resort we talked about checking out next anyway.

I was curious about the Grocery delivery to the resort.....will the resort deliver the groceries directly to your room; or do you need to pick them up at the desk and bring to your room??? If I could have it delivered to the room, that would make more space in the car for other things.

Thanks!

I used Garden Grocer last year and the groceries I ordered were delivered to bell services. I got the text that the groceries had arrived and since we were near bell services at the time I picked the groceries up. Otherwise, you just call bell services and they will deliver the groceries to your room.

Question Special Request Room?

We requested building 5 and I was wondering what the odds are of getting this building since we just have a standard room ressie? Are there any ways I can increase my chances of getting my special request fulfilled?

Fantasia Mini Golf

Hello fellow POFQ fans!

I was wondering if anyone knows how to get to the Fantasia Mini Golf course from the resort.

If it's easier to take a cab how much would it be; approximately?

Thanks for your help!
