We saw LOTS of squirrels, some bunnies, a nice amount of lizards and lots of birds. Not alligator or palmetto bugs, thankfully!

We saw a southern ringneck snake in the hotel grounds outside our room at the Caribbean Beach Resort in 2011

Is there anywhere that we can store our luggage on the day of departure? We don't fly until late and will obviously need to check out before then...

yes, the Bell Services is located where you get on the bus to the airport and they will store everything there for you until you leave. if you are doing resort airline check in they will check your bags for the plane and store your carry on items there as well while you enjoy the rest of your day

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Yep I saw one of these at POFQ. It was tiny but still startling since I walked up almost on top of it. It was sunning itself on the sidewalk.

I also saw a great big black snake (wasn't sure but it looked like a moc, we were a little far from the water but it had a triangle shaped head so better safe than sorry) in a raised bed at Epcot by the bus stops. It was being flushed out of the grass by the two children RUNNING around in the grassy landscaping while their parents made halfhearted 'don't play in the landscaping kids' attempts to make them heel. Another family next to me looked at me when I told the other kids and their parents that they were about to get bit. In half broken English and half gestures they were like 'snake? viper?' I was like YES don't play in the grass. They bundled up their own kids and put them on the other side of the area and looked at the original parents like they were loony. The snake hightailed it for the next grass patch and disappeared into the underbrush. Smart Snake.

Great, thank you.
We checked in at downtown disney last time but we were travelling with Virgin holidays. This time we booked separately so don't get it free. I was thinking if we are able to store out luggage securely we would save the ££...

That would freak me out! Thank goodness I have never encountered a bug, snake, alligator or other creature in WDW! Well, other than some rude guests a couple of times.

Talking Just back

This was our first stay at POFQ and we loved it. We had requested first floor connecting rooms in building 4. We got second floor connecting rooms in building 2. Initially disappointed but it really turned out to be fine. We were next to the pool and boat dock and since we had Garden view it was quiet. The walk was a piece of cake as it is from most buildings at POFQ. Now- having been there I would not pay the extra money for garden view. Even the rooms overlooking a parking lot appeared to have some sort of beautiful landscaping just outside the doors. The only rooms that seemed to have an odd view to me were those in the back corner of building 4 closest to the main building. and that view was a wooden wall. Everything was clean and well maintained. The food court was just OK but it served its purpose. Our room was clean and the beds very comfy. The kids loved the pool and roasting marshmallows in the evenings. We never made it but they had movies every night on the lawn. oh and we did see a palmetto bug on the sidewalk to the hot tub.
OT-We ate at Be Our Guest for dinner and it was very very very good
Sad to be home, but for those getting ready to leave, Have Fun!

I can't say we've ever run across roaches/spider issues - but there are little gecko lizards running everywhere around the property. Or there were several years ago I also always end up going during love bug season (October) and have been there during one particularly bad season, but just dealt with it. I am a bug hater - mosquitos/bees/wasps in particular - but what're you going to do, right?

I forgot about the little geckos. I don't mind them, and they don't seem to come inside. The grandkids (and I) had fun trying to catch them, but it couldn't be done! Fast little things!
