Thanks. We have stayed at PORR before and we felt the need to reqeust a room as that is so apreadout but when we walked to FQ it seemed so compact that the need for a specific room request may not be needed?

Last 2 trips have been to POFQ... We really like building 5.... Close to pool and boat launch, short walk to Food Court....

We never request nor want a ground floor... I've seen too many guests with ground floor rooms leave their door open or ajar to hear their children or what not and there's too many creepy crawlers in Florida for me to wrestle with in room..

We request ground floor building 4. Right near the food court and bus loading area. Perfect for us

Thanks, i am thinking maybe top floor of building 4? That way we won't have to worry about people stomping above us.

I finally got my online check-in done two days ago. I went ahead with the second floor, near transportation options. Of course I also wanted the room ready early, which negates the other requests, so we'll see what we end up with.

Honestly, since we've paid for a King bed room, and my understanding is those are all corner rooms, I'll be happy with whatever we get!

Online check in, does that only work when reserving directly with WDW Travel?

No, but you do need your Disney confirmation number. Sometimes if you book through a TA, they don't give you that number right away.

I had one, put it in and my reservation is there, perfect, online check in 20 days away. Question, when can I put in my room request, during online check in?

Do you remember the choices, such as did they offer connecting and non-connecting rooms and is the top floor an option? TY!

We have never requested a particular location at POFQ. So far we have always had a ground floor room, in buildings 2,3 and 7. Never had a problem with any noise in any of them.

There are elevators in the center of each building, so you don't always have to use the stairs.

Im considering booking POFQ for Aug of 2014. We stayed at CSR in Aug 2011 and loved it. The question is do you think our 24, 18 and 15 year old girls would enjoy it, or would it be to lame for them? Thanks in advance

We have stayed at POFQ 7 times We have also stayed at the Poly and the WL a couple of times each. With that said my now 17 yr old granddaughter would rather stay at the POLY but my 9 yr old granddaughter always wants to stay at POFQ. For me I love POFQ but if I could afford it I would stay at the POLY. As far as 15, 18 an 24 yr olds the pool is tame but if you really want to stay at POFQ tell them to consider the boat to DTD and the walk over to PORS. We do both every time and love the contrast.

2 months, 2 wks & 3 days till POFQ
