I am checking in on 9/25 and will be missing out as well.
Although I think I am going to check with concierge on 9/30 to see what they can do for us. Worse they can say is sorry, can't help you.

That's what I'm doing too - maybe they'll be nice since it's my DD's birthday!

Sorry, they won't be able to help you, it's a system issue. No matter how much you plead, there is nothing they can to prior to the roll-out date, and they cant fix it then going for retro-active either.

Best way from POFQ to the Poly for 'Ohana dinner?

There will 10 of us, all adults, staying at POFQ in November. We have dinner reservations one night at 'Ohana and am wondering the best way of getting there using Disney transportation.

I'm thinking a bus to the MK and then the monorail to the Poly.

Thanks,
Linda

Building 4 is the closest to the bus stop. Then building 5. MOST of the buildings aren't too bad a walk to the bus stop. We were in 2 and it wasn't bad.

The only way to do it would be to split your stay (i.e. make two bookings, and check-out and check back in on the 30th) but is it worth the hassle?

It doesn't alter by season, but by park. MK never shares, but the other parks often do - although at very busy times, such as park closing after fireworks, they may get separate services.

We were just there in late August and only had to the POR "loop" once the whole week. There were times that I know the drop-off was going to continue to POR, but POFQ always gets dropped first, so no big deal. We went to all four parks, DTD, and Blizzard Beach, at all times of the day, and only had to pick up at POR that one time, heading to DHS around dinner time.

Awesome! Thanks. We were just there in August and it seemed like the first few morning buses went straight from POFQ to the parks then later on, they shared. Just wasn't sure if they stayed that way all of the time. We're taking our DD3 for her first trip in February and we were wanting ease of bus rides. With this in mind... Looks like we'll be staying POFQ again in February. Our new favorite resort!

How are the hair dryers in the rooms? Debating whether to bring mine or not.
