Too funny maybe we will see each other since it sounds like the resort is small

We will be there 9/25 to 10/4. I tried for weeks and weeks to add the night of the 4th on.. but only river view was available. (we are booked with garden view) I ended up going with a room only for one night at AoA...

Our flights got changed, so now we land 2 hours later. Which means that if everything goes smoothly, we'll probably only have time to watch MSEP and Wishes in MK on arrival day

We're still waiting for our Mickey Mail though. Wish it would hurry up and arrive It's a good think I'm at work when the mail arrives, if not I would probably be stalking the mailman by now

On our first day, we have a reservation at House of Blues in DTD at 6:45. What time would you recommend getting on the boat to get over there on time. I heard that it can be crowded especially during the evening hours. OH and I'm staying at POFQ at the end of September

just did my online check in!! We arrive in 10 days Question regarding online check in....I have done online check in for other trips and I know there is a field that you can put in requests etc, but this time, when I click on the button to add a request, it never gives me a field to put in my request Has anyone else had this problem recently? Not a huge deal but I had wanted to put in a request to get a room in a specific bldg (I know it's not guaranteed)I guess I can call and put the request on my reservation over the phone. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this.

10 days!! can't wait!!

The same thing happened to me a few days ago, as well. Today, when I was on the phone with Disney, she happened to mention that the computer systems were undergoing a huge enhancement this week. I wonder if that's where the glitch is coming from.

POFQ Requests??

My sister and I are stay at POFQ Sept. 9 - 15. This is my sister first trip and we don’t have any special needs. As this is my first time staying at POFQ, are there any request I should make or you would recommend for our check in?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I figured it was some sort of glitch...no big deal though! The resort is small enough I think that any building will be fine I'm sure. Have a great trip!

I would recommend this resort.

We just came back from a 9 night stay and we enjoyed it. It was quiet (a need for me) but still had plenty of activities. The pool is nice and the room was spotless. I LOVE the fountains and walkways plus the walk to Riverside (still my favorite but barely) is super. The doorman is a sweetheart and the gift shop is adequate.

We weren't overly impressed with the food court but Disney food courts in general don't thrill us. The bus service was spotty but there was always a CM out there tracking the buses so maybe that's a work in progress.

Yes, I'll gladly recommend this resort to anyone. I'll stay there again.

I always stay at POFQ, and I find everything at the food court fine except for their eggs/omelettes at breakfast. Sometimes they're okay, and other times they're like rubber. I think they're powdered eggs, because they taste nothing like real ones! If you get breakfast there take a look at the food at each station before you order. Mickey waffles might be a better option. Or beignets! Yum.
