Thank you for all the pictures! POFQ is our favorite resort. We stayed there almost every year until the price jump/value resorts. I have so many pictures of me from my youth around the resort - especially posing with those gators

Now that it's up to me, it makes me so excited to see the pictures and plan to go back to FQ. Woohoo!

Thanks for all the pictures! This is our first stay at POFQ- I'm so excited! I was a little leery about staying in a moderate, my last two trips (back in high school with my parents) were at BC and OKW, but now I really can't wait!!

Oh gosh I get goosebumps looking at this thread! We leave in 50 days and it's so exciting. My husband refuses to let me show him any pictures of POFQ because he wants to be surprised. I did all the research, planning and booking and he just wants to enjoy it all with our girls, whatever I have planned. These 50 days can't fly soon enough!

My first moderate experience was CBR, which I wasn't too impressed about, but after staying at CSR and now seeing these amazing pics of POFQ, I am amazed at the theming of the other Moderates!

Facing the pool from the river, Building #5 is on the right. We request that building each year. Good location for the pool, food court and buses.

Love, Love, Love all the pictures! We're taking our 1st ever trip to WDW and staying at POFQ. This helps to reaffirm I made the right decision.

Can't Wait!!!

We are leaving in 22 days for our honeymoon, and this is the first time that both of us are staying on-site. Thanks for the pics- I can hardly wait until August 10th rolls around. I'll be sure to post some of my own pics on here when we get back!

Thanks for all the pics of POFQ. We're so excited for our upcoming stay there! The kids and I just finished our countdown sticker calendar (only 31 more days!). This will be my family's second WDW vacation (my fourth) and first time stay on-site for all of us.

I'm curious, has anyone taken the carriage ride around the resort and if so, did you think it was worth it?

Also, what did you think of the food at the cafes/restaurants there? Is it a long haul to the other restaurants and themed pool at POR?

Thank you for any tips!

Grin, we're a day ahead of you on the countdown front.

The carriage ride is fun, it lasts about 25 mins and is a relaxing way to see the resort. It sets off from the POR marina area and goes over to POFQ and back.

The walk over to POR is about 850 yards and is a very nice 10 minute stroll. The food court there is much like POFQ's in terms of food quality, but is a good deal bigger and has a little more choice. Boatwright's is the table-service restaurant at POR which serves food with a slightly cajun feel.
