Mostly, yes. However please remember that it is not guaranteed.

I'm so excited!! I just called and switched from Pop to POFQ! This will be our first time at the resort. We enjoyed Pop last time, but I'm looking forward to trying something new! I've stayed at CBR before, so I will be anxious to experience a smaller moderate. POFQ regulars seem to LOVE this resort, so I am praying we will fall in love too!

OK, still got some more work to do, but here's my first panorama from POFQ taken a couple of days ago (might be a bit big so could take a while to transfer, I'll try to trim the final filesize down a bit):

Another panorama, this time of the POFQ registration lobby - again not quite finished, but good enough for now. Right-click on the link to save.

We were thrilled they gave us all our requests! I requested bldg 4 or 5, outside corner corner, upper floor. And asked for my friends rooms to be nearby.
I got exactly that, a wonderful corner room on 3 rd floor overlooking the food court. We just had to walk down our stairs and cross the street to get to food court and bus stop. One friend got the room next to us, and the other was in the room behind ours way to go room assignors. Couldn't be better.

Thank you so much for that Andre. I hope you are able to do some more.

I'm having a POFQ Withdrawal week this week and these panoramics are great because they just give a feeling of really being there! Is it very quiet at the moment? It looks deserted from those pan's!

I was on your site the other night and decided we needed some POFQ music for the house and bought Preservation Hall Orleans vol 1 CD which has just arrived at my office (hard to resist the urge to put it on lol)

Your wish is my command... This one is the main entrance atrium, and even though this is just the first go, I think it looks really good already (I was worried about the varied exposure and possible stitching issues, but it's come out OK):

www.portorleans.org/images/panoramas/POFQ-Main-2013-0808-pano360.swf

It wasn't really that quiet. :-) It takes a little while to shoot these, and each panorama is built up from around 10 separate images. I try to choose my timing to make each image 'clean' by waiting for people to walk out of that particular shot before I take it, then do the same with the next rotation, etc.
