Would it be pool view? I know we want ground floor and reading it said pool view was a top floor.
Building 5 facing the grass courtyard is a fantastic location. Close to main building and pool, short walk to bus stop on front of 4! We love staying in 5!

I think it is a matter of a request is a request. If you were going in a busy time you might not get 5 but if you're hitting during a slow time they'll give it to you if they have it.
Thanks, that makes me feel better. The last 3 years we've always been during off peak times (September/October) so you're probably right about availability. Our trip next year coincides with 4th of July so I will rather request a different building. I figure if there's a better chance of getting something close to our request if we are asking for the right category lol.

The photos Andre recently put up have really made me look forward to staying at this lovely spot.

So, my countdown now officially begins!!
POFQ is the best! . We will be there around the same time as you. We stayed there last vacation and our family is hooked.

Would love to hear if there is a frig in your room when you get there.

We have only stayed offsite and in a value. I had my heart set on staying at FQ this fall and was thrilled when my sister got the Free Dining PIN in May and we were able to apply it to both our rooms. It sounds like FQ will be excluded from the Free Dining promo coming out tomorrow. Can't wait to experience FQ in October.

Okay, I have not yet had a room request noted on my ressie, and I am obsessing over this

We are booked in a King room. DH said he really would like a river view room if possible.
I am leaning more towards close proximity to the bus stop. But from all that I have read, and after studying Andre's maps, it looks like most buildings fit that bill.

So, what would your building suggestion to me be for a King room with a great river view?

I think buildings 3 & 4 are the ones with no River views.So ask not to be in those buildings. Best way to get riverview is to book that category and then request a room with a king bed.

Standard room in building 4 or 3...does that exist? Or are they other views?

Also, does POFQ provides bed rails upon request?

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?
