Bounce bounce... just did online check-in for this Friday. POFQ. Requested ground floor near transportation, so we will see how it goes.

This is still a Surprise for my daughter who is 14. She knows that she and I are going somewhere on a mother daughter trip, but I have said - no it needs to be close to home, etc. etc. etc... and I have said we won't figure out until next weekend exactly where and then book it and go. So she is thinking a drive to somewhere. Hoping I can keep silent for another 6 days until we wake her up and head to airport.

That and I hope she won't kill me for planning it without her.

That's exciting! She'll love the surprise!

Do you remember if top floor and a non-connecting room were options for room selection? Thanks!

There were 4 choices. Near Transportation, Corner Room, Ground Floor, Second Floor. That was it. You could pick two. I didn't see a top floor option.

Since I have a feeling she will want to run to the pool, and the food court and, and, and... and since she is REALLY LOUD going down stairs, well and walking (how for such a tiny girl), I opted for near transportation ground floor. It was between ground floor and corner room. Maybe I will get lucky?

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!!
We were in building 4 last November. I can sometimes be a light sleeper. But I never once heard the movie. In fact things were very quiet at this resort. Much quieter than any other disney resort I've visited.

Thank you! We want top floor, so unless Next Gen is rolled out before Sept. (doubtful) I will forgo the online check in.

I hope you get a great room location!

Which seems odd, as by listing "Ground Floor" and "Second Floor", that would imply that they are using the general Ground Floor/1st Floor/2nd Floor numbering system (rather than the US nomenclature of 1st/2nd/3rd floors). So given that all of the POFQ buildings are three storey (or, in the US, three story ) I would have read those choices as meaning Ground Floor or Top Floor. But why not just write that and avoid the ambiguity?

Are they using the Internet from another country like the UK where it would show British English as opposed to American English?

Please stop licking your monitor. It's hard to clean the smudges off, and electrocution sounds painful.

Are the KING beds new as well? I would assume all mattresses were replaced when the refurb happened, what a year or two ago?
