Yes. The Minute Maid Lite Pomegranate Lemonade was there as of this past Tuesday. Really good stuff - nice change of pace from soda.

Internet at POFQ

How is the new free wifi at POFQ?

Does it work well in the rooms?

Is the wired internet in the rooms now free?

Thanks....we leave tomorrow morning!

If I understand the reports correctly, there is no longer any wired internet in the rooms; it's wifi only

Wi-Fi worked great in our room (in Building 4). I didn't see any ability to plug in for wired.

I am on the wifi right now, it works much better then I expected. Occasionally it will drop out and I will need to reconnect but the speed is good, I just did a speed test:

2.97 Mbps down
.93 Mbps Up

Not too bad. I even tried streaming video from Dish Network Slingbox at home to my iPad it was okay. There is a HSIA (High Speed Internet Access) connection next to the table but I have not even tried it as there is no reason. The wifi in the parks also worked fine for the most part my son connected fine with his iPod Touch and was using the My Disney Experience App. Now the App is a little slow and you need to be careful as it doesn't always update.

Question - I am not sure if this has been asked before. Would my 13" Macbook fit in the in-room safe if I stood it on its side?

I don't think the safes at POFQ and POR are large enough for laptops. We always lock our iPads in our suitcases if they don't fit in hotel room safes.

My netbook barely fit standing on it's side and it is smaller then 13". So I would say the Macbook will not fit.

I finally convinced my hubby to upgrade from AoA to POFQ for our adults only anniversary stay We will be there Dec. 11th - 18th! I am excited!! I have always wanted to stay at POFQ; even before the refurbish. I thought the whole place looked cute and quaint I am much more excited about staying here than I ever was about AoA. It looks much more peaceful. I have a feeling we will be very, very happy with our choice

I have a question about the coffee makers. Are they just like the Keurig one cup thingies? Can I bring my own K-cups and will they work with it? What kind of coffee do they normally provide with it? Do they also provide things like sugar or cream or is it something you have to pick up in the food court and bring back to your room?
