Hi,


If anyone is at POFQ now would they mind having a look at what washing powder and conditioner/softener options there are? We are going to bring the powder from home I think but don't want to risk carrying the liquid softener. Also how much it is? Just to give me an idea.

We arrive on Friday!

Very excited now...

Thanks, Lisa. :-)

towels if you go from one pool to the next

If we stay at FQ and go over to Riverside's pool, do we have to take our towels or can we use those over there?

You'll be fine, even building 7 is still pretty close to the main building, and as you say it's a closer walk for Riverside.

You can pick up towels at either of the main feature pools, but not at the Riverside quiet pools.

Coffee creamers in room

Are the coffee creamers in the room dry powder type or the small liquid cups?
Thanks!

[QUOTE="LisaRobinsonUK;48383554"]Hi,

Ares washing powder 53gm small box I shared with someone so enough to do two washes. No liquid softener but a pack of two sheets of bounce. Both $1 each. Laundry directly behind the hot tub so not a bad place to sit while waiting on your washing or pop down to the river and sit on a bench there. Never busy and plenty of washers and driers.

We leave Saturday sadly but loving our first visit to pofq.

Pods. They look like round, flat tea bags.

Halloween at French Quarter

I see that last year there was a Meet and Greet with Disney characters from 4-7 in the Lobby Courtyard. Can anyone tell me which characters were there?

It is Coffeemate in a pack. We don't like this stuff at all so we brought our own 1/2 and 1/2. The advantage of driving!

You get 2 regular and 2 decafs per day. That was not enough coffee for us as dh drinks 2 regular in the morning and 2 in the afternoon plus I drink one in the morning. I requested more but they weren't very generous until our last day when they left us five times the amount of coffee along with a ridiculous number of the sugar/creamer/napkin/stirrer packs.

Post # 2103 shows the coffeemaker, the pods, the creamer packs off to the side and in the cup in the back, all the black packs sugar etc. that they left the day before we checked out.

You can see in the picture that these are pods, not cups. They are about 2-3 inches across and snuggle down into the pull out tray in the top of the coffeemaker. I'm not picky about coffee but dh is and he said this coffee was ok. Much better than what used to be provided, that is for sure.

I never saw a teabag in our room even though I requested them. They are available in the food court but I'm not sure whether one could consider them to be free.
