I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Standard or Garden View depending on where you face. Mostly Garden.

I think Andre's maps on portorleans.org have them marked (so you can see which ones are King or Accessible and therefore a seperate cat). Just click on the builiding map.

Bumping and Joining in!!

We are hopefully heading back to POFQ next June for our 2nd stay. We loved our first visit and can't wait to return.

It is such a beautiful resort with a great location. We were in building 4 in June 2012 and would love to stay there again on 2014.

Have there been any big changes in the last year or so??

No, I said it will be up by 1st of August, but hopefully a few days earlier if I get it in time.

I hope for today or tomorrow, as otherwise I'm going to be editing and posting it from my room at POR when we get there!

So with the possibility there will be no free dining, I have moved past plan A and plan B and I am on to plan C

So plan C is a 4 night stay at POFQ pool view room (just booked), and then head over to the Swan/Dolphin to stay 5 nights on points. I rather stay POFQ the whole time but the cost is outrageous without a discount (we are arriving Thursday night before Thanksgiving and the Thanksgiving week prices are high).

So my question is, will 4 nights be enough time at POFQ? Has anyone stayed here and the Swan/Dolphin. Which did you like better? I would like to check out both resorts, not thrilled about a split stay but this is the only affordable way right now. Thoughts?

I'll give you take.... POFQ all the way.... We're not fans of split stays at all...we're booked for POFQ for 9 nights middle of October....resort is so compact with ease of getting anywhere super quick and the walk or boat ride to POR is great for a day picnic ( at their swimming pool, sisters resorts so its allowed)...nice place for an evening stroll or boat ride to DTD....way better than POR..

Swan and Dolphin have never interested us, at any cost... Not Disney, not for me... We won't even visit there... It's the way we are plus EPCOT is not our area of enjoyment.... We're MK people, we usually stay at the WL, but has gotten too pricey, what we would pay there for a week we could stay 2 weeks at POFQ...

Like I stated, we're not split stay people and we hate dining plan, counters and touring plans but with 49 trips under our belts... We enjoy Disney just fine our way..
