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

I'm at pofq right now. My room had a fridge when we checked in on 8/25. My daughters room did not have one on check in day but just a few days later we came back from
The parks and discovered that one had been installed while we were out. We also saw cast members wheeling a large trolley loaded with a bunch of fridges so I think pofq is in good shape.

Yippee, sounds like all will be well soon with the fridges.

I'm taking a break from packing--so excited! I'll be with a 17 yo and a 15 yo. Dh is staying home. We hope to arrive no later than noon via Magical Express. Have a great vacation!! Can't wait until Monday!

Andre,

Did I miss the September Movie schedule post? 17 days to go!!! I am planning on doing laundry (probably 2x over our 11 night stay) and will probably take turns with my DH doing laundry/supervising kids at the movie!

I can't wait!

I'm going to be really honest and ask a question of all you FQ lovers and hopefully I won't get my head handed to me for asking.

I have been planning and saving for this trip for 4 years. It will be me, my sis and your 4 daughters (2 ea). I have always wanted to stay at FQ more than any other Disney resort and was thrilled when sis got FD PIN and we booked at FQ.

Then the announcement came out the POR was going to start testing MD/FP+ in September and FQ is not. So disappointed and I am now questioning my resort choice as POR was my 2 choice. Its too late to change resorts but I feel like my family is missing out on FP+ because of the resort I chose. Still looking forward to the trip, but my excitement sure is diminished. Yes, we will be at WDW but still...

Anyone else checking into FQ in September/October having similar feelings?

Seems like FP+ may roll out to all resorts by November 1. We check in October 19th.

thanks.
