Just returned home yesterday from a wonderful stay at POFQ! Our stay was awesome! The castmembers were nice and very helpful. Mousekeeping kept our room in tip top shape. We had towel animals most of the time. We ate in the food court a few times (loved the pot roast). We had no issues with the busses they were fine. We had lots of pool days and the castmembers played pool games with the kids.

We love the POFQ and love to stay there but we are going to try a new resort next year. As a matter of fact, I am booking next year's trip next week!

Great!! The riverview rooms are awesome! We were upgraded from the GV room. It was pleasant to look out of your room and see the boats go by.

The actual mugs started to be issued to new guests from today, but the equipment to use them at the drinks dispensers won't be activated until 19th Aug.

The chips are being activated as you buy them (there is a new device at the tills which sets each mug up for its period of validity) so they will work once the sensors are turned on. This is so existing guests won't be forced to swap their mugs when the system goes live next week.

FQ had orange and purple mugs today, Riverside also had green. However I'm sure FQ will have all three styles before long.

I don't drink coffee but my wife does. How does Joffrey's compare to other types? She loves Dunkin Dark Roast, is it similar? Excuse my ignorance, all coffee tastes the same to me, kinda like warm dirt.

Hi, everyone! Quick question for those of you who have already stayed at POFQ... We have booked at sleigh ride at Ft Wilderness during our Dec trip, and we're planning on taking a bus to MK and then riding the boat across Bay Lake the rest of the way. How long do you think we should give ourselves for travel time? I honestly have no idea and would love some advice from anyone who's made this trek before. Thanks!!!

I would be at the POFQ bus stop 90 minutes before your sleigh ride.
