I believe they only have regular and decaf supplied. If you want any flavored pods you can check out this website www.coffee.org
I haven't ordered from them yet but may when we go next year.
I only use the K-cups at home so won't be able to have them for Disney.

Thanks
It takes us 10 min to walk from POR to FQ. Both food courts have nice selections, but I have to admit the make your own pasta is our fav at POR, and for breakfast a make your own omelette.

Does the food court have any cold coffees available like the Starbucks bottles to keep in the refrigerator in the room?

Do they have normal hot dogs? The menu just says chilli dog. Not even sure what this is (I am from UK). Can you just ask for it plain?

A chilli dog is a hot dog with chilli on top. I am sure you could ask for a plain dog.

Just booked our trip for next spring!!
10 nights POFQ garden view in mid April '13. But I haven't made a room request yet. It has been MANY years since our last stay, and now am in need of new knees. I know I can request a ground floor room, but any suggestions as to the closest building to the dining area? Would it be building 5?

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Yep just ordered a plain hot dog and got a dog and bun only. I think I may have asked specifically for hot dog no chili.

Chili is a beef and tomato based sauce spiced with smokey/slightly spicy southwest/Mexican flavor. It is thick but liquid enough to pour onto the hot dog. It was a decent hot dog with enough flavor to taste good without the chili and cheese.

We plan to be there from the 15th to the 26th, so perhaps our dates will overlap.

One end of Building 5 is close to the dining, as is one end of Building 4. You might need to let them know you need to be close to the food court. Do you plan to use an ECV?

I did online check in and the request choices that were available were ground floor and near main building. I know we had building 4 when we stayed there before and it was a minute to the main building.

Hoping to avoid renting an ECV this time. We usually just rent a wheelchair in the parks. But this may have to change this year. I took a closer look at the resort map and it does look like either of these buildings would be really good for us. And Yes! our trips will overlap. We'll be there from the 9th to the 19th.

Those will be the best requests for us to make- probably better than making a specific building request and ending up in a room furthest from where we want to be.

Thank you both for your advice. Really looking forward to getting back. And getting to spend days exploring the Flower and Garden Festival!!
