I'd guess at 5-6 weeks or so, but until there's a confirmed start date that's a rather meaningless timescale I'm afraid. As soon as I'm able to quote the start date, I will.

Thanks!
We just returned after staying 3/6-12 and my husband said it was OK. It was the Cuisinart pods that would brew two cups at a time so it was brewed but I still used my Via. I'm kinda particular. I don't recall half and half in the food court but we brought "mini moos" from home which didn't require refrigeration and he liked those. In the food court at the time we were there it was still Nescafe. ICK!

Hope that helps.

Can someone explain to me why POFQ got rid of the half and half dispenser? Our last trip to POFQ was in Aug 2011 and they were using those little creamers in a ice bowl. I was hoping that they would have changed back by now. We stayed at the WL last Aug, 2012 and they had the half and half dispensers, so much easier
Does anyone know if the Riverside has the dispenser?

According to this post from Easywdw, POR does have a dispenser, but as far as I can tell from this post, POFQ doesn't.

We were there in January and was told they got rid of the half and half dispensers as they were having problems keeping them filled. They were constantly being emptied by people filling cups for the cereal they brought from home or drinking it like milk.
I guess they will soon be keeping the creamers at the cashier like they do the tea bags.
I wouldn't mind paying for half and half but I hate those mini creamers...... All that extra plastic.

Oh I think it'll be done by October - it should be complete before the summer in fact. I'd guess it will be finished by around the start of July, but we'll have to wait and see.

Darn, I guess it's my fault then. I really do object to having to buy a whole carton of milk just to put a few drops onto a bowl of cereal I buy at the food court. We usually have a gallon of milk in the fridge back at the room, but I don't want to drag it all the way to the food court for breakfast. The creamer dispenser was just perfect for the job, but a couple of the little cartons will do fine too. They really should supply free milk for the cereal boxes though.

Where is the courtyard with the rectangular "pool" bordered by frog fountains? I can see the parking lot behind it, but I was wondering what buildings it was near. Does anyone have pictures of the other neat courtyards and where they are located? Are there other locations that have views of the narrow "streets" between buildings?

Trying to figure out building/view requests. :-)

Thanks!
