Those rooms are indicated with red room numbers on my floorplan maps. I'd suggest calling the special assistance line on 1-407-939-7807 and see what they can get set up for you to make life easier.

Thank you!! I will call them,

I like the idea of being close to the action

Hi everyone! We will be spending our 5th anniversary at POFQ & it's our first stay here in all our 20 something trips.

I have three questions.

1) are the coffee makers in the rooms the cuisanart pod ones?

2) are there always taxis out front say 730 am? Or do we need to call for one? We have a 8 am breakfast at GF on our anniversary.

3). In Sept does POFQ share bus with POR?

I have three questions.

1) are the coffee makers in the rooms the cuisanart pod ones? I don't drink coffee, so I can't answer that one.

2) are there always taxis out front say 730 am? Or do we need to call for one? We have a 8 am breakfast at GF on our anniversary. Never had a problem getting a cab anytime of the day. There always seem to be one out there.

3). In Sept does POFQ share bus with POR?Yes they share sometimes. Each trip we have stayed at POFQ, including September, we have only shared with POR once. This was the bus to AK. Others have said they shared going to other places as well.

at POFQ early June

I'm looking forward to my first stay at POFQ with family 2 June - 7 June. I stayed at POR by myself one night after a conference a few years ago and just loved the grounds. POFQ looks like it will be great for lots of park time but also some quality family time hanging out at the POFQ pool, POR pool, taking the boat to DTD, etc. I've loved the great tips from everyone on Disboards that have helped plan all previous trips and this one.

Checked in at POR yesterday. This resort is AMAZING! Did online check in so there was really no wait and to top it off we were upgraded from a standard room to a Courtyard/River view Royal Room. I did use Venom's fax template and mentioned on my fax that my DD8 would be turning 9 this trip. I think the CM saw the shock on my face at check. He just smiled and said " the notes on your reservation say: We want April to have a magical stay in a princess room for her birthday." We are in Parterre Place so just a short walk over the bridge to the lobby / food court / and main pool. What a great start to our vacation!

That's wonderful and I hope the rest of your stay is just as lovely. However, you might want to repost this at the POR thread, this is POFQ.

While I can't say for 100% sure since I haven't stayed there yet I will say I've almost never had a problem finding silk in wdw be it at a resort or CS. But hopefully someone can tell you for sure!

Elliott Dyson Gone?

I just read on another thread that Elliott Dyson had been laid off by Disney. Elliott played at Scat Cat's club during weekends. Can anyone on this thread confirm the news? Andrew?
