I will be there May 24-June 1. Requested Bldg 5 facing the hot tub. Have had this location 2 x and love it. But, really won't be too disappointed with any location.

To those Disers leaving real soon = Have a great trip.
It looks like several of us won't be far behind.

The pool bar menu is available at: Mardi Grogs Pool Bar. However I don't have a list of the beers, but I think someone else has posted that.

has anyone tried the pasta & shrimp dish at Boatwrights at all? thoughts?

I'm thinking that for our first day when my mom and I arrive, we're defintiely going to take it easy. Probably no parks. I definitely want to do the carriage ride at POR. As for dinner, I was thinking Boatwrights but my mom is VERY picky. She won't eat meat, and as for seafood, only shrimp..and nothing spicy or with a strong flavor. HOW we're related is beyond me! Looking at the menu it seems as though one of the only things she'll eat there is the pasta with shrimp or veggies. I tried to look up reviews on here but it doesn't seem like a lot of people have ordered it because I can't find anything!

Thanks!

Your mom and I think alike about food, only I do eat chicken. The only fish I can eat is shrimp, but must be very careful.

Boatwrights is very popular, but we've never liked it. We find it noisy,crowded and dirty. We'd just as soon eat in the food court - but that's just us and many do like Boatwrights.

When we've stayed at FQ or POR we've gone to DTD for a relaxing boat ride and dinner at Cap'n Jacks. What we liked before was that we would request a table by the water and it was such a relaxing way to begin our vacation. The chef was wonderful about personalizing my order so it was free of the things I do not/cannot eat. Here's the dinner menu.

A nice relaxing evening is such a great way to begin a WDW trip! Have fun!

We really liked it, but have not been back since the menu changes (last time was 2006). Seems with the DDP Disney has kind of streamlined menu's and the great restaurants are not so great anymore. Maybe you can find some recent reviews on the restaurant board?

Sorry I couldn't be more help!

Leaving in TWO days!!!!

I've requested a room in Building Four (closest to the bus stop, I think) and crossing my fingers for a corner room. I've heard these rooms have an extra window?

That's the same request I made almost: building four, bottom floor, close as possible to food court and buses. I've made the exact same request twice before. I got building 4 both times, once on the top floor though and once on the second floor.

Hello All

Just arrived and somewhat new to this board and getting some helpful tips to make the magical place on earth more magical, if that possible.

Started planning a while back and wanted to celebrate our 20th anniv. in November 01, 09 and changed to November 30 to celebrate DW birthday and finally changed to December 08-17, 09 to celebrate all our birthdays and anniv.
We are selected POR FQ for our first time and would like Building 4 as well. I think it is the closest to the Bus and dining. Being the Holidays and Winter Season I dont think we will be using the pool much.

We have decided to change the same old air flight home to taking the Amtack train home, relaxing and going over our photos and recaping the days and highlight.

Has anyone taken the Amtrak from Kissimmee before?
