We could not take the boat back because it has started to rain and the boats stopped running.

Andre said you could get another boat at DTD and go over to the other part of DTD...would that put you closer to PH??
How often does the second boat run and how late?

Thanks everyone for your advice. I let the reservation go. I feel it is too much stress and hassle. Too many wild factors to consider coming in from the plane. I found a reservation at a later time at another restaurant at Epcot.

You made a good choice. I noticed on your ticker, you have a little over a month before you are at the World and no reason to start stressing over anything. I believe your celebrtion is a belated Honeymoon. Just enjoy each other and let the and happen as it comes. Congratulations..

My plane arrives from Buffalo @ 12:45pm. My ADR @ Epcot is 2:35pm. I really hope I can make it to the resort by 2:00pm and take a cab over to Epcot in time for my ADR.
Don't push your luck. Head over to the boardwalk and have a nice lunch.

On our last trip I only had three months to plan and managed to get both lunch and dinner ADRs at Le Cellier. I checked daily online, several times a day, and was able to get both within weeks of our trip. Keep checking! You may just get that ADR at the last minute.

Hello,

We are booked at POFQ for December 10-17 right now in a standard room. I am considering upgrading to a garden or possibly river view and just wondered if anyone could tell me if they feel either is worth the extra cost (specifically at this resort?)

I was just there back in June and had booked a standard room. I requested ground floor and building 4 and both requests were honored. The view and the room was WONDERFUL!!! My sister book a riverview room but she even loved mine more! lol.. Have fun! you're gonna love it!

Count us in the fun My family will be heading over to POFQ for Sept 9-14. We'll be at the CR for DH's convention Sept 2-9. My DD and her family come in Sept 9 (they'll be at ASMO for DGS's obsession with Toy Story) and a family of friends will also be at POFQ while we're there.

Stayed at Riverside (Dixie Landings then ) years ago....our first WDW trip and always loved it, but never POFQ.

Looking forward to new fun

How far in advance do you think you will order? I would love to do this also.
