This throws a wrench into my plan of just checking "closest to ground transportation" on online check-in! Would calling to specify a building be our next best option (I'm guessing it'd be too much to put away from the movie but closest to the bus)? Maybe building 2 or 3?? Thanks!
Here now in building four and have not heard anything from movie night. It has been super and quiet!! Can't beat the proximity to buses either. We're loving this room! Hope that helps you!

I had a bounceback that didn't cover the first day of arrival. So I booked one night at Pop Century - no big deal. Well, I had to modify my reservation anyway, and the CM saw my Pop reservation. So she checked that night at POFQ, and got it for me at a discount! So now I stay at POFQ for the whole trip! Much more convenient!

How stressful. We are going POFQ nov 8 and we are praying for magic bands .

I'm not PP, but I'm in room 4137 - faces the movie lawn, first floor. You can hear the movie (9pm to 10:15pm approx.) but pretty muffled if your AC is running. I doubt it would upset a young child sleeping. The movie screen is set up at the farthest part of the lawn from my room (see portorleans.org for map) and the sound seems to be there too. The people and horse drawn carriages going by make more noise (a lovely noise though), but none of it a lot of noise. For a quiet room you probably would prefer bldgs 1 or 7. They spent a lot of time cleaning the bricks areas near us, for example.

I love this room location. My kids can go to the campfire (which as of yesterday is moved permanently to a newly build brick fire pit at the end of the lawn area with the movie, nearest to the river) and the movie without me, and I can see them from our window. And, they have a quick bathroom break during the movie if they need it. It's great.

We were in Building 1, on the far side towards the parking lot. It really is such a small resort that I honestly don't remember it being that far of a hike to the bus stop. Or the pool either, for that matter. And, quiet! Sheesh some nights it felt as if we had the whole building to ourselves.

Building 7. Parking lot side. Same room friends stayed in two years ago, we had adjoining room then. I guess It's A Small World After All!!

Thanks everyone! It does sound like there really are no bad locations. I'm clearly overthinking this! Haha!!

Are the fridges (when they are in the rooms) big enough to hold a gallon of milk? I am trying to remember what we bought last time and I simply can't. I don't know if we bought a half gallon or a gallon.

Here is a photo of my frig at POFQ - taken today (guessing this Magic Chef frig is one of the new ones). Gallon of milk and two 2 liter bottles of soda are visible. (First time posting a photo link - hoping it works.)

I have an 8:30 breakfast at 1900 Park Fare. Will I be able to get there from POFQ using the buses/monorail that early? I think the buses run early but maybe not the monorail? Suggestions for best way to get there?
