I thought, given the recent posts about faxing requests, that some of you would be interested in this post.

If you are more than 2 weeks before check-in, call the reservation center to add your room requests. If within the 2 week mark, the best way to get your room requests added is to call the resort directly, and add them to your room reservation. As someone else posted, even if those calls go to a "Call Center", the call has to be transferred to the resort itself for those requests to be added to the reservation since call center staff doesn't have access to the reservation system.

The most important thing to remember about room requests is that they are requests, and not guaranteed, especially if you have a very long list of them. If you have more than one, list them in order of importance as we may not be able to fulfill all of them. Also, adding more than 2 or 3 requests max will almost guarantee that it will be unable to fulfill them all. Our room assignors work very hard to fulfill as many requests as possible, and they really are masters at juggling availability against incoming requests. They want to do everything possible to make your stay magical, but may still not be able to fulfill 15 different requests for the same room.

Online Checkin

The day has finally come and I can't believe it. It's online check in day.

I would love some thoughts, I paid for a riverview room (free dining) and I am thinking my first request would be buliding 5.
Now what are everyones thoughts on floor levels? I know it says you can make two request (I of course know these are not guaranteed) but I am pulled between two.

I always thought I would request a ground level room- easier with the stroller but my sister said people were having problems with lizards.... is this true??? Also, a ground level room would still be considered a river view, right?

My other thought/option was to request a corner view.

I would really appreciate anyone elses opinions or thoughts.

Thanks a million. I am soooooo excited.

I have always stayed in a ground floor room. Never had any problems with the lizards. Of course the lizards are all around, but this is a good thing, since the lizards each the bugs.

With a stroller ground floor is definately easier. Last time we were down we had ground floor and it was nice with the stroller.

The down fall of a lower floor room is that you have people (and toilets) above you. Generally its pretty quiet, but you definately notice the toilets flushing. If you happen to be below a room where you might have people are noisy or jumping around it definately could be noisy and just hope they don't do it late at night while you are trying to sleep.

We just returned from 13 nights at FQ. We were in building 5 on the backside near the open area where the movies are shown. We LOVED this resort. We ate at the food court a few times..everything we had was good. We even booked for next year!
I am ready to answer any questions...ask away.

I came back from POFQ on tuesday morning and I WANT TO GO BACK!!! I almost started crying on my last day when I realised that we were actually going home the next day! But everything was lovely! There was a powercut one day, so we couldn't get an evening meal at the food court, so we had to go over to Riverside but the window thingy we wanted food from closed at 11pm, so we only just missed it The hot tub was cold one afternoon when we went in, so I notified the lifeguard and they fixed it quickly enough.

We had problems using up our quick service and snack credits though. On the last full day we still had 26 snack credits left :P It was an easy fix though, as I'm a norwegian girl that lives in England, I just went to the Norwegian shop in Epcot and got chocolate for most of it We ended up leaving with 3 quick service credits left though. I was tempted to ask someone if they wanted some free food, but we had to make our way to the airport as we'd already spent too much time in the park.

We will be there in two weeks !!

Just got our confirmation with Garden Grocer last night !!

We stayed at Wilderness Lodge in April and it was great, given the savings over a deluxe it is worth the trade off.

This will be our second at POFQ we loved it two years ago and the kids were so excited about being there again. We are psyched to be there again !!!

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?
