Seems like lots of people have just returned, can someone tell me if FQ has separate shampoo & conditioner now? I was just reading the POR thread and some have said they do now, so wondering.
The 2 in 1 doesn't work for me, and don't want to have to pack conditioner if I don't have to!
38 days to go

Yay, 37 days for me.

I have a bald head, so have no need for a shampoo, let alone a 2 in 1!

Hi..

Spur of the moment adults only trip planned for Jan 14-18. We're staying at POFQ for the first time. I've stayed at Riverside twice, CSR once, all the values (except AoA) and WL. Since it's a last minute thing, we're trying to do it as cheaply as possible, so we are booking Standard View.

I have so mobility issues (no ECV or wheelchair, but I can't really walk very far) so I wanted to request (and yes I know there are no guarantees) a room that is as close as possible to the main building. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm looking forward to staying at POFQ!

Just came back last Saturday and they do indeed have the separate shampoo and conditioners....cute little Mickey Ear tops too. But beware if you take them home...the tops pop open easily.

Can we say food issues?

It did in October. Which surprised me as they have been combos in the past.

I have not used it though...even when staying deluxe I was way underimpressed with the shampoo and conditioner so I don't use any WDW hair care. I have very low maintenance hair and it seemed to dry it out.

We stayed in Building 3 and we were very close. It probably took a minute to get to the food court. Have fun!! We loved POFQ

We are arriving to POFQ in 13 days!
But unfortunately, our plane schedule changed, and we know we'll arrive at 10pm! Do you disers say that there is any chance we can be checked in before midnight? Where we can go for something to eat? DTD? Or pick up? Just me, my DH and DD 3 and we are going to use ME.

If your flight arrives at 10pm into MCO, as long as it's not an international landing then yes you could be checked in by midnight. Take your luggage with you on ME though, or you won't get it until the next day.

At midnight your choices for food at the resorts will be a bit limited, so I think it might be best to pick up something at the airport. Pizza is available until midnight for room delivery.

Tks, Andre!
But it will be international, so probably we'd better pick up something at the airport...

I'd suggest allowing a good two hours from landing then, as you'll need to go through US immigration first, which can take a bit longer than domestic US flights. Assuming you have not already landed in the US that is; some routes go via US hub airports, and you will go through immigration at the first place you set foot on US soil - anything after that and you're on internal flights. So yes, getting a bite to eat at the airport might be a good idea.

I LOVE the H2O products! When my sister and I were there in Oct we asked for extra and they gave us TONS! I keep using them on my post-Disney depression days.
