Wireless connections seem to be fairly good (although it can depend on your individual room location of course). My bigger issue is with the quality and speed (bandwidth) of the link on the other side of the router, speedtest.net gave me very variable results even with very good Wi-Fi signal strength at POR.

I think they've listened regarding those annoying T&C login prompts. I did not have to login once during our two-week stay, using six different devices - just connect and use. The same applied in the parks, very easy to use and it re-connected automatically as we moved around. My DD found she had to turn her wi-fi off and back on again occasionally on her Blackberry, but we had no such issues with three other Android devices.

It has always been free since ever they launched it back on 15 December 2011. Prior to that the resort provided a cabled internet service for which there was a $9.95/day fee.

Can you connect devices such as Roku or Apple TV at POFQ? Those devices cannot work on systems that require a login prompt via http.

You can try, but even if they connect I doubt there would be enough bandwidth for them to run effectively.

But aren't you meant to be on a Disney vacation?

So I got one question. I've just been able to link our package to the WDW website (yay for the change to the website that lets us link the UK res number). Just wondering if we're able to do any edits to it? Like we're going for our Disneymoon, so we want to put that on the reservation, but I can't see anywhere for us to put that in. Or is that something we can do during online check in (that is still 392 days away )
