We did the same, see my new ticker! We actually stayed at POR in a Royal Room this time and while we enjoyed it, we definitely missed FQ. We actually went over to FQ for breakfast 3 of the days we were there. Booked for next year with FD at FQ and can't wait.

(I'll snag HE pods from my mom to pack if they're outrageous to buy!)

Also, we will need a portable crib. If I call now and note the crib request, will it be in the room already or should I just request it when we check in (around 8:30pm)? And if he refuses to sleep in there, there's bed rails available too right?

Thanks!
Laundry detergent is $1. I don't remember if it was HE or not. I believe the box is enough to do two loads of laundry.

I would call and request it now so it is on the reservation. I think they are limited. When the kids were younger, we would always slide the bed over against the wall. No rail needed. Just a suggestion.

Too funny we went over to POR to have breakfast and use there pool ( couldn't believe how crowed food court was over there ) I wanted to show my kids other resort but like there mama they liked FQ better so that's where we will be again 😉 6 years in a row and can't wait to go back Aug 22,2014 !!!!

I did a full update at the start of Aug, but POR had a few menu and price changes at the end of Aug (now listed) and I just want to check that POFQ is still correct too. Ideally, a full set of pics for breakfast, lunch and dinner would be perfect - but whatever anyone can manage would be great too.

Thanks!

We'll be arriving on 9/21/13. I'd be happy to do so.

That rather depends on whether there is any special building, floor or room you particularly want... or if you'd prefer a quieter area or to be near the main buildings/pool, an upper floor for less people/noise or a lower floor for easier access, near to a parking lot or a bus stop, or the boat dock, etc, etc. It's a very small resort anyway, so you are never really far from anything wherever your room is.

It can be a bit like saying you're planning on buying a new car and asking a public forum what make, model and colour you should get.

All that said, for an anniversary a quieter upper floor river view room might be lovely - perhaps somewhere like building 6 for fairly easy access for the buses too? Building 7 is nice too, but its river view King Rooms are about as remote as you can get.

I heard (rumor ) they are turning the fire pit that used to be just benches and our favorite bldg into a smoking section. That would be terrible for non smokers in that bldg. I hope that isn't true

I would expect that to happen, yes, as that's what was there before the campfire was added a few years ago. There was a tree located where the firepit was placed.

Thanks, much appreciated.

If you have a smartphone and wi-fi, then email is the easist way to send them straight from the food court. Someone did the same thing at Riverside for me a week ago, and it seemed easiest to snap several pics of each of the rolling menu TV screens (Bakery, Grill, etc) and send each batch of two or three pics together as email attachments. The image files don't need to be big, just as long as they are detailed enough for me to read the text. Send to admin(at)portorleans.org.

Thanks again, and have a great time at Port Orleans!

Andre
