Echo queen
I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

went to DTD by way of boat which took 20 mins to get on the boat. When we left, the boats were closed bc of the weather so we took a bus which took just over an hour. Next time we will drive, lol. Other than that, it has been a good day!! The lobby refurb is blocked and can't see anything. The CM had us sit at a table and chairs outside the bar while she got our packet. It went very smoothly!
Provided I'm not trying to get to ARD on time, I don't mind the slow transport at WDW.

Hi! We're returning to POFQ in August - cant wait!!
We are considering online check in and are debating room location requests.
Last time we were in building 1. I loved it but DH wants something "closer". (I know it isn't that far but....)
We have little ones who might nap and will be (hopefully) in bed early at night. So how loud are the ferry horns in building 2, and has anyone been kept awake by the movie in buildings 4 or 5??
Any recommendations for a building? Thanks!!

After WL and BC will we be disappointed? We had great discounts previous stays. Pofq os definitely appealing but will it be a huge step down?

I hope this is not a silly question... But is the Queen bed good for two?
It's less than two months for me and my girlfriend s visit and we booked the standard.
Thanks

Depends on what you are accustomed to; if a king bed then this will be smaller, but the queen beds are new, quality and plenty big. Much better than a full mattress. You should find plenty of room.

There are 2 queen size beds in each room unless you book and pay extra for a king.

But yes, there are insects and bugs in Florida, so I guess that in any location where the doorway opens to the outside world, if you leave the door open something could get in. So no one is going to guarantee you won't find anything ever - but best just hope it's a bunny rabbit not an alligator!

I'm way behind in reading this thread (Andre's quote above was from page 125). But I could not resist mentioning that on a vacation my DH & I took to Young Island just off St. Vincent in the Caribbean years ago we had the unique experience of having a peacock strut into our room - what fun! I was able to take a few photos but don't have them in digital form so I can't post a picture.

When we visit POFQ I would not mind a bunny rabbit in the room but think it is highly unlikely since we've requested a 2nd or 3rd floor room.

February this year I was in Bldg 5 facing the lawn. The movie was always playing when I came home in the evenings but only once was I really aware of hearing it from inside the room - it was the climactic portion of "The Incredibles," which involves a lot of crashing and exploding things. Even still, it wasn't that bad, just a few rumbles. I can't imagine you would hear it from Bldg 4.

I really loved my room location: 5344, 3rd floor in the part of Bldg 5 closest to the main building. Go past 4 doors, around the corner, down the stairs, and you're right across from the food court.
