For those who are going to POFQ soon, have a great time.

I still have a looong time left. I enjoy reading this thread, so thank you all. And thank you Andre for your website, it helped a lot in the decision to stay a POFQ instead of Pop (which we've enjoyed in the past).

The grounds are beautiful and you can't beat the boat to DtD. The masks in the food court kind of scare me but I'm sure I'll either get over it or send DH in instead.

We just checked out from pofq this morning. There is a salad option, but they make it for you. There's not an actual salad bar. You can get it with chicken or shrimp, i had it one night. it wasn't bad.

Thank you Jane! I am sure I will be having this for our pool days next month!

Apparently they never got rid of the instructions on the back about separating the tags even though each person now only gets one tag.
Will ME take a second bag per person? I'm travelling for an extend period of time (23 days) and each one of us will have 2 bags each.

They should do, yes.

Andre, how soon should I request an specific building? I have my heart set on building 4 so my mom won't have to walk too much before we even hit the parks.

Would they honor my request for building 4, ground floor if I explain to them I have someone with moderate mobility difficult in my party?

My reservations are from Feb 6-15.

Adding your request to your booking now would be fine, and then send a fax 3-5 days before arrival. See http://www.portorleans.org/room-requests.php

Yup! But you will need to request that they send 2 tags per person since they automatically only send 1 tag per person.


We just booked a 2 week stay this AM for POFQ in June 2013. I suspect we may end up switching to POR if their AP rates are better, but POFQ is our first choice.

I just wanted to say thanks to Andre for the great job on both FAQ threads here, as well as portorleans.org. I have learned so much about both resorts just by reading!!

Andre, if you are still here, I would like your opinion. We have reservations for 2 rooms at POFQ 11/3-11/21 and wanted to add three nights to the end. I called this a.m. and agent said only king rooms available, which won't work for us. I'm not sure what my question is? I guess just keep trying? We will change to POP if we have to.

Looking forward to our first stay at POFQ in less than two weeks! We've visited many times but never stayed.

Well I'm certainly still here, but I'm not sure what your question is either.

21 Nov is getting pretty close to Thanksgiving, maybe that's what is blocking your booking extension searches? Have you thought about splitting the stay with POR if you wany to stay in the same general location? Also, did you contact a travel agent to extend the stay, or Disney directly?

Andre

Contacted Disney directly. I guess what I was trying to figure out is if you reserve king room, and get there, you might be able to change to 2 queens. But this won't work with my DD & family, they have 4. Thanks for your response.
