Thank you! I thought the same thing about 2+2+1 under 3 but will double check. I have issues with the new site. Will definitely find out for sure before booking!

I've just checked and it works fine if you search using 2 adults and 3 children - but you need to enter the third child's age as "Infant", it doesn't work if you select their age as 2 years (I don't know why, as 2-year-olds should be treated as infants by the booking system). You can even book four adults and one infant for POFQ if you want.

If you're hoping for cold weather, you're most likely going to be disappointed. Typicals highs for December in Florida are low 70s.

Except, of course, when we were there - December 2010. Average I think was 35. I wore my ski jacket & gloves all day in the parks! For Fantasmic, it was 20 degrees! (We didn't go, but I bet there was no line!)

We were there then too....we came off the ship on a Thursday (was cold on the ship too) & arrived at WL to freezing temps....that year was horrible, but it was still Disney

Yes, at French Quarter and all of Riverside's pools.

When DH and I went in 2009 in December 2007 and 2009 it was FREEZING. We wore our Columbia coats, and one of the CM's said "You're from the north aren't you?". When we said yes, he said "I knew because you can't buy coats like that here in FL!". We wore gloves too it was so cold! Also, when riding EE, no one screamed because it was so cold.

Either way, December is a great time to go!

The weather in FLorida from December to March is a crap shoot, you never know what you get. It can change from day to day even.

Yup, we were there dec 10 to 17 in 2010 at WL and it was coat and snow hat weather. Makes me scared to go back in the winter

I requested building 3 but am rethinking either 4 or 6 or 7
Will I be able to hear the movie from either of these buildings?
I have booked a garden view
Also how many minutes is it from building 7 to Riverside?
Thanks

From the very end of building 7 to the start of Riverside's grounds, about a minute I guess.

Well we live in the Asian Tropics, where the days are high 90's and the nights high 70's, 365 days a year, one season all year long, so for us any change is good, and fos us these temperatures would be cold, so fantastic
