Feel like I've been planning the trip forever and now it's only 10 DAYS and I feel like I haven't done anything yet!!!!

All these lists and tips and notes that I've been meaning to jot down---guess I better get going! Time to drag out the suitcases and start throwing stuff in there that I know I'll be bringing. Time to call the resort and request that refrigerator. Time to start the packing lists.

Anyone else feel like you plan and wait and daydream FOREVER and then suddenly it's here and you feel like uh-oh, I'm not ready?????

But, of course, I'm always ready for Disney!

It's Pool View rooms that are only on the second and third floors of buildings 2 and 5.

There are plenty of ground floor River View rooms.

I'm with you. Just finished my packing last night and made my trip sheets form Easywdw because we have the pats game, north shore music theater and the Lowell spinners all in the next week before we go.

Love seeing all the folks from MA/New England that are staying at POFQ.

Can't wait, FQ is the resort I wanted to stay at more than any other!

This is only our fourth trip and the other three were all at Values. Don't get me wrong--we had a great time and I'd be perfectly fine staying at any of them again. But now all four of us are considered "adults". We really enjoying having the full DP and not just the QS---like that break for one sit-down each day! By the time we paid to upgrade all four of our plans, the price difference to stay at a moderate was minimal (less than $100 for 6 nights!). They didn't have any standard rooms available within the deal, so I did have to get a Garden View, but that's fine by us!

Soooo hoping to book a BB to be able to do this again next year!
We were lucky enough to get the FD PIN in May; my sister got it. I had my heart set on POFQ but knew there was a good chance there might not be any availability there when FQ was released to the GP. Was thrilled when I called Disney to see if I had the PIN everyone was posting about. I didn't but sis did.Had to upgrade to Garden View too.

The kids are so thrilled to be staying a resort with a pool slide; we have only stayed Value before.

Super fun for both of you! Will be cheering from our couch! Who cares if it's just pre-season -- I'm just excited for FOOTBALL!!!

We'll be at POFQ in mid december prior to our cruise. Can't wait for both!!!

OMG, that Pats Jr. Cheerleaders are so cute!

I work closely with Gillette stadium and the New England Patriots by nature of my job, and my company has a suite, so that's where I'll be!!!

From POR FAQ thread:

Emails and letters will start going out today to inform guests arriving in 18 days that they can pre-book their FastPass+ times (up to 60 days out in fact) and customise their Magic Bands (colour and name) via the My Disney Experience site. It may not be possible for Disney to contact all guests (e.g. those who have booked via some travel agents) but the new system will still apply to everyone regardless.

Continental USA guests should be able to get their Magic Bands mailed out in advance, others will need to pick them up at the Front Desk when they check in. Key cards will still be issued as a backup for the foreseeable future.

While this is still officially classified as a "test", the general expectation is that unless there are major problems this will most likely remain permanent from now on.

French Quarter will follow within the next few months.

Andre
we arrive October 19th, wonder if we might have Magic Bands

When we are coming back from the parks- and the PO resorts are sharing buses- does it stop at both bus stations to get the POR then POFQ line up- or block one line up and PO waits at one stop?
