And as to recreation, anybody have any experiences with the carriage ride or the kid's Pirate Cruise at POR?
We did the carriage ride in 2009. Very pleasant and relaxing, we'll probably do it again on our anniversary in 2013.

We are going to POFQ in Oct, having stayed at POR 2 years ago and loved it. The only thing I am a bit concerned about is what I have been reading about the food court. Just how bad is it?

Are we best to plan to walk across to POR to use their food court in the evenings, which we liked? How long a walk is it?

Thanks

I didn't think the food court was bad - actually we enjoyed it. We had two dinners here which we really weren't planning on. My son and I enjoyed the chicken quesadillas so much that we both got it both evenings. My dh had the jambalaya and I know the rib dinner. My dd also got the rib dinner. We all thoroughly enjoyed both meals. Not sure how long the walk to Riverside is as the one time we were there we took the bus and then the boat back but I believe it's an approx. 10 minute walk or so.

Really anywhere in Disney if you use a taxi it'll be about $20, not incl tip. and the Taxi driver shouldn't charge you a fee for unloading suitcases after your trip, but if he's just moving the suitcases from one resort to another, probably the same amount as hiring for a regular service.

We liked the food court at POFQ. I had the meatball sub and liked it. It was so big that I had to eat it with a knife and fork, but it tasted good. My DD had the chicken and liked it just fine. And she can be very picky!!

I would definitely check it out before walking to POR.

We also breakfast there most days and always found something we liked. Never had lunch there because we are always in the parks for lunch.

Can we say food issues?

I'm a fan of the chicken quesadillas as well. Ate them two nights. Had a hot dog as well. It was fine, for a hot dog.

Do you know if you have to reserve them beforehand or can you wait till you are actually at the resort? Thanks

You can often get a booking a few days before - it's not like getting an ADR at Le Cellier. But you may struggle a bit if you were hoping for a walk-up, depending on time of year.

Poussière de fée!
