Jumping in!!! Just changed our F&W reservation from POP to POFQ!!!

We will be there from 9/27 - 10/2! I'm so excited, as it will be my 1st POFQ stay. We have recently only been staying deluxe and we have only stayed at one other moderate (CBR) and didn't like it at all but I think POFQ is about as opposite from CBR as possible. Plus, with my 35% off, it can't be beat!!!

Looking forward to learning more about POFQ! 51 more days!!

My sister surprised her daughters back in 2008. They were supposed to be at school at day, and my sister wanted to tell them when they got home that they were going to WDW. But due to a snowstorm, the girls' school was closed and they were at home. So my sister told them, in front of a video camera, when she got home from work.

She started by saying, "you won't be going to school tomorrow". She then said, "because we're going to the airport, meeting Auntie Kathleen, and going to Disney World!"

Their eyes got soooo big and they started jumping around (after one of my nieces nearly hyperventilated!). Of course, this was right before Disney's TV ads showed people videotaping the same such surprises...what a missed opportunity, if only we'd known...

The girls' second surprise is that my dad and stepmom met us there. We knew they'd be there, but the girls didn't. We went into MK, rushed down Main Street, and told the girls, "look, who is that on that bench?"

What a great way to sprinkle some pixie dust on the little ones. Enjoy!!

Yes, different musician than before though. It's now Tom Casey at POFQ, and he performs Friday to Monday.

Hi everyone, Just arrived today and my room has a new refrigerator - I'm in building 3 and was upgraded to a garden view from a standard I also confirmed that Joffrey's coffee has officially replaced the Nescafé.

Thank you for the info! We have 24 days to go and I've been wondering about ordering a cooler. I may hold off now with the hope we'll have a fridge.

I'm interested in knowing this as well. I've seen his start time listed as 8:00 and 8:30. Does anyone know when the show starts?

The rooms don't have DVD players, right?

(DH swears they do, but I think not...)
Thanks!

I've not seen him yet, but I might pop over this evening and get some pics and maybe a bit of video.
