Our past couple of WDW trips at different resorts, a wash cloth has been folded with the soap on top in lieu of a soap dish, and I've just used it. Works great. I never would have thought of it.

so might a reasonable room request be

Building 2, high floor, quiet room? We are booked with a Garden View.

Should be quiet . You should be overlooking the courtyard that parts of buildings 1 & 3 also face.
We stayed in that building on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool and even that wasn't too noisy.

That's exactly what I started doing our last trip, don't know why it took me so long to figure that out.

Yeah. I was surprised.

I was also distracted by the time, exhaustion and jackhammers that I forgot to request a building. Got put on third floor of building 7. I know this resort is small, but it's still a walk to the bus stop and drink filling station.

One thing of note: life jackets for little kids to use in the pool are now kept in the gift shop. You have to go in there, give them info and sign it out. You can keep it until you leave as they sometimes run out, so you know you will have one for your kid.

Requesting a microwave for your room is this possible? I read it over at another board and it peaked my interest.

Well I'm heading back home, I've been in NOLA for my nephew's basketball tournament. Had some beignets in the French Quarter and my mom is really looking forward to trying some at POFQ. Architecture made me "homesick" for POFQ. I've got two more large trips planned before I get there but I keep finding myself going back over my WDW plans instead of finalizing the stuff I need for Seattle/Alaska and Chicago.


Hope everyone has a blast now that summer is here. I can't wait.

I know the deluxes have a few and it's a first come basis. I don't know about moderates.

Yeah, the same. They do have a very limited quantity of microwaves which can be requested by guests (if available).

I've finally finalized a booking for my special girl and I for 8 nights Aug 31 @POFQ with FD!!

Next thing on my list is room requests (we got the standard room):
I gather that bldg 4 is best location wise (i.e. BUS stop , and maybe mug station?, least noisy area?).

How can I make such requests?
AND is there anything else that's good to ask for?

Thank you! all this thread and this entire forum are awesome
