Just got back from a few nights at POFQ combines with a trip on the cruise line. POFQ is excellent, with my only complaint being that the doors to the rooms really need to be repainted. If they're going for the beaten up French Quarter look, they're doing a really good job. It's weird, though. Only the white doors look horrible, all the ones that are colored look almost brand new.

Andre: I remember from the Scat Cat Lounge that there are definitely 2 tv's in there. If you're sitting at the bar facing Elliott Dyson there is one on each side of the room. I remember because I was watching the football games at the same time.

What are the busses like from POFQ in the AM? Is there a character breakfast bus we can get to MK, Contemporary and AK? Does it stop at POFQ first? Is it crowded usually in Feb?
Thanks in advance

Beds?

Hi all

This is a great forum. We just booked our first trip back to WDW in 6 years after getting sidetracked with cruises. I'm so excited to be going back!

My question is, when we were there and stayed at POFQ the beds were incredibly uncomfortable. Have they changed them at all? I sure hope so!

Thanks for your help.

a few more pics. These are in the foodcourt:






The price of the 3 and 6 piece serving of Beignets had gone up since our visit in March.


I'll post more later.

20% off rack rates at Value resorts; 30% off rack rates at Moderate and Deluxe resorts; or 40% off rack rates at DVC/Deluxe Villa resorts.

The dates were 12/14/08-12/20/08, 1/4/09-1/8/09, 1/11/09-1/15/09, 1/25/09-2/12/09, 3/1/09-3/14/09, 5/31/09-6/6/09, and 8/23/09-10/2/09.

I think this is right.

Man I can't wait to stay at POFQ next year. We are doing a split stay and were going to do CSR and CR but the CR was just to much so we decided to try CSR and POFQ. We have never stayed in either and have only stayed at POP and ASMovies or off site before so we are really excited but we still have 308 days til then, which is OK since it gives us time to pay off the Resorts and save money.
