Agreed. I think you'd be able to connect, but the slow speed would be an issue.

Or is that something we can do during online check in (that is still 392 days away )
You'd have to call to add special occasions. Once you have the reservation, you can't edit it until online check-in, and even then there are only a couple general requests you can add, which should probably already have been noted.

I was sure I saw on here that POFQ laundry had changed to card only payment? Now I can't seem to find that. Can anyone help?

Correct. I thought I'd updated the FAQ in the first post, but maybe I forgot?

I'm pretty sure I read this somewhere before but am I correct in that you can get a sharps bin on request from check in?

Thanks in advance

We will be at FQ in 15 days!!!
My question is about the mugs..I missed the whole info on the sensors. Could someone break it down for me or point me in the right direction?
Thanks

Does anyone know if electric scooters (wheelchairs) are able to get on the ferry from POFQ to Downtown Disney?

Yes they are fine.

That's great news, thank you!

Does anyone have any insight as to what it's like to use a scooter/motorized wheelchair around the POFQ property? My mom can walk but she has some mobility issues after being type 1 diabetic for nearly 50 years and I want to make sure she'll be able to have a good time at the resort, despite not being able to steadily walk. Many TIA! :

It should be fine, the walkways at resorts are plenty wide and buses are designed to accomodate reasonably sized mortorized scooters and wheelchairs. POFQ will be particularly good because it is smaller and more compact so she won't have to drive as far to get places. If she has her own and is used to driving it, she'll be well ahead of the game. Disney is very accomodating for all guests. Enjoy!

Just wanted the option as I have a hard time getting to sleep and having a movie on sometimes helps. I tested it with my access point on my Verizon phone w/unlimited data and it works great so if the bandwidth at FQ isn't good then I can do that.
Thank you for all your help on this board. You are appreciated.

Believe me watching the Disney channels that are on the TV will be enough to send you to sleep
