Yep, it does make choosing somewhere else quite trick... and that's why we don't do it! We just stick to POFQ which is perfect every way you slice it!

Oh, how I miss home! Just a few more 400 days

44 more days until we are "home" for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. I try my best not to do the countdown thing so that I don't get complacent at work but it's hard.

My wife is no help too. Every night when I get home she brings up what she wants to eat at our different ADR's. It changes daily so she feels the need to inform me.

I love POFQ and had planned to go back this OCT. However my mom decided to come along on the trip.

She is a deluxe kinda girl. She was also really interested in Free Dining. So I knew we would have a not so great shot at FQ.

When mom came along I decided to let her have most of the input and showed her some options that were rumored. She loved the RGR's at POR, so I was part of the morning rush to get a RGR Garden View w/FD. (not a huge heart ache as I had thought I would eventually try out the AB rooms at POR)

However I miss FQ and am already trying to decide whether or not to change my RO Jan Value ressie to FQ if they get a decent winter sale rate.

FQ is addicting and I'm going to miss it this trip.

Still hoping for a full set of menu pics from the food court if that's possible? Just quick cameraphone snaps of each of the menus in turn would be pefect (anything you can do - breakfast, lunch or dinner - would be great).

Also the campfire area would be nice, I don't think we've seen a posting of what it looks like now?

Have a great time!

Andre

I'll do my best! I'm usually not around the resort during lunchtime, but tomorrow I might be able to do those after we check in. I've actually never been to the campfire, so I'll try to scope that out too.

Normally, we head out during the late morning and don't come back until pretty late at night, but we don't usually go this time of year. I think the heat and humidity might change our plans a bit, so I'm thinking there's a better chance we'll be taking daytime breaks back at the resort or returning home a little earlier this time.

No worries, anything you can get whenever you happen to be there would be great.

We will be at POFQ around the same time. Not sure what my countdown is atm lol.

If a part of your trip falls in October, join our October 2014 Facebook group if you have not already. The link is in my signature.

They opened up November arrival dates for MB and FP+ yesterday, so it's worth trying again.

I assume that fairly soon they'll start using the final rolling 60 day window, rather than setting specific test dates.

We've been able to access the FP+ system up
Until 11/30/13 and personalise our magic bands. It was very strange to make FP reservations for Soarin whilst sat having my breakfast!

I did it a few weeks ago(not at breakfast) but so cool to be able to make FP+ before our trip. Now I keep trying to tweak the times but am pretty satisfied with what I have.would like to get MSEP if that opens up
