Just changed to stay at PFQR from CSR in November. I need some advise, which building would you request? We would love something close to the bus stop and if possible close to food area so we can refill quickly. If I would like a ground floor room, should I request that also?

List your requests in the order of importance. So something like close to food court and ground floor. Or switch the order if you really want ground floor.

my sister and are hoping for connecting rooms and the request is in our reservations. I understand it's only a request but am wondering if our chances are any better if we DON'T use on line check in.
Thanks

Whether you do online check-in or not has zero affect on getting your requests met.

Howdy fellow POFQers!

So after a few days to try and calm down (somewhat successfully, somewhat not so much, lol) It occurred to talk to you guys!

A bit of info - my sister is paying for almost all of this trip and I feel she is getting really ripped off b/c we picked the wrong resort. I want this for her. She's being totally cool about the whole thing. Me? Not as much, lol.

So - why no FD for POFQ? Has it been excluded before? What are the chances it will get it between now and October? I couldn't believe it was excluded.

We could of course try and get lucky and move to POR, but we don't really want too. We'd rather stay at POFQ.

TIA!

Because they don't need to. POFQ is a very popular and very small resort. They don't have any issues filling rooms. Disney rolls out discounts, room only and free dining, to fill empty rooms. Even when POFQ is included in a room only discount, it is usually 5% when the other moderates are 15-20%.

Evidently, it is usually excluded from FD promotions - we were just super-duper lucky. I hope you are able to get it at POFQ!

We have free dining for fq. However we got it booking bounce back last year. The resort is so small they don't offer many discounts.

Definitely request ground floor if you want it. (My primary request is always "NOT ground floor.") Rather than requesting a building, I think the best advice is to request "something close to the bus stop and if possible close to food court." You're probably looking at Bldg 4 or 5, but if you just give a building number, you could be at the far end of that building away from where you want to be.

Really? Now, see, I missed that important fact back when researching which resort we were going to stay at! I researched when FD was offered and I didn't pick a value, so I thought I was doing pretty good. If it's been excluded in the past, I guess there's not much I can say, is there?

Does anyone else feel ripped off? I've been accused the last week of acting entitled. Now I deal with entitled people and I've never considered myself one, I just feel like we were arbitrarily excluded from a really good deal that just about everyone else got. It also seems VERY limited. With POR selling out of FD before noon, for example......

Sorry if post high jacking. I'm guessing I just really screwed up. We would have never chosen POFQ if I knew it was routinely excluded from FD.......makes me

When I first made my res. in early June FOFQ didn't have any more rooms for FD so we booked at CSR for Nov. I just called about an hour ago and they had an opening for FD so we switched resorts.
