POFQ question for those who've been there

Long story short, I'm planning a surprise birthday visit (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3066218), and need to know where luggage/bell service is in relation to check-in. In order to set up the room, I may need to send my family to pickup my mom's rental scooter, while I say I'm checking in, but actually sneak away to the room! I've looked at the resort maps, but none of them seem to show exactly where these 2 places are in relation to each other. Help would be greatly appreciated!

Bell Services is located in the Main Building at POR with a door leading to the exterior; the Bell Services desk is right out front at the Main entrance by the parking lot.

I would believe POFQ would be set up the same way.

What time are you planning to arrive at POFQ? Check in starts at 3:00, and I've been able to get into the room sooner and also have had to wait as late as 5:00.

Check-in counter with 3-5 cm's sits along one wall. Bell service is just past it, basically a few feet from the end of the check-in counter.

I am glad you came along; I looked at the pics of the entrance to POFQ on the thread and it was hard to tell if it was in the same place as POR with the angle of the photo.

Thanks for the replies. I'm hoping to get in the room early, but I know it's possible I won't; if you looked at the thread I reference in my OP, I live close enough to drive out there, can wait until noon-ish, then head back home to pick everyone up. This question is aiding me in my Plan B - if I can't get into the room early, and have to send everyone else to pick up my mom's scooter, while I sneak off to the room, since I'll have already checked in and will have the key and number - in that scenario, I won't have a lot of time to decorate, maybe 15 minutes or so. From the way bell service is being described, I don't know if it'll be possible though. If the luggage area is right next to check-in, I'm sunk!

I really wasn't too sure about using Disney Florist & Gifts, because they're expensive and not internet friendly it seems, but I might have to reconsider. Oy, the trials and tribulations of trying to plan a good surprise!
