Ours was the first floor of Building Three. Right next to the service area, but also right next to the main building, and a short distance to our car and to the food court.

Sure - most of the rooms have two beds, in fact.

From our experience......the corner rooms are king bed rooms.

Thanks for the new thread. We were there 2 weeks ago and I'm already homesick for the FQ. This thread may help pass the time until our next trip in Oct. of 2009.

Gotta have my weekly POFQ fix!!

How exciting to see that you made a new thread, andrewilley! We just switched our Christmas reservations to POFQ and I needed to see some updated information. Thanks so much. I have to say I enjoy your website too. Well done!

I know you will like it! We do. I have a request for you, please. Would you take a peek in the area near Scat Cat's Lounge and see if there is still a piano there? It was in this general area, to the left of the tables, a few years ago when we were there:



BTW - I copied this picture from the POFQ pictures thread. Hopefully the original poster won't mind.

We had a corner room in May and it had 2 double beds. It was in building 2 on the first floor.

my mom has mobility issues (can't walk far). I did note that on our reservation to be near the bus and food court. What building would you think would be the best?

Disney Transportation from POFQ

We are staying for the first time this Dec and I was wondering if there is a separate bus for each park or if you just get on the one bus that makes a round trip by each park.

Generally, how long does it take to reach the parks from POFQ? Will it be easy to come back to the room during the day for naps?

Thanks!
(Hope this is the right place to ask!!)

I, too, have mobility issues and have stayed there three times in building three where they have some lovely handicapped rooms. I have had no problems. Fact is, however, unless she needs the roll in shower and handicapped Johnnie, anywhere at POFQ will do as it is such a small resort.

There's a separate bus for each park (although the water parks do share - TL with Downtown Disney buses, and BB with Animal Kingdom buses). The buses often go from POFQ to do some pickups at Riverside first, before then heading on to their destinations. Not always though, at busier times there will be dedicated buses.

The journey time from leaving the resorts varies from 10 to 20 mins depending on the park (Epcot is closest, AK furthest).

Ok Thanks. She doesn't need a handicapped room but she does have breathing issues.

Can anyone help me? We've never stayed at POFQ before and I'm trying to figure out the best way for us to get to dinner at both the Grand Floridian and the Yacht Club. I've been searching tor a transportation guide and can't seem to find it.

ETA: We will not have a car, relying on Disney transportation or cab service.
