We had our car as well, but always opted for the buses. It makes park hoping much easier for us.

Just be glad you didn't have one fly at you....
I think it was smaller than a pinkie, probably a baby palmetto bug.

We are staying at POFQ for the first time we we go on our 25th Wedding Anniversary Trip! We arrive on November 29. I am so excited about our choice after reading all the posts. We've camped at Fort Wilderness twice and stayed off-site on our honeymoon. I've always wanted to see WDW decorated for Christmas!

We picked POFQ based on a recommendation from a friend - after being upgraded to OKW last time I just couldnt see us going back down to value. This thread has me PUMPED!

I just hope we didn't get our lifetime equivalent of pixie dust last trip with that upgrade. And Disney has a lil' more left for us.

But how can Christmas at Disney NOT be magical?????!

Ask the people in the five-hour line for Soarin', who thought that having a nice lie-in and going into the parks early in the afternoon was a good idea.

Could one of the upcoming visitors to POFQ do me a favour and snap some photos of the Breakfast and Lunch menu signs in the food court? On our recent trip I got the current evening POFQ price lists, but did not get a chance to go back earlier in the day for the Breakfast/Lunch variants. Thanks.

My camera isn't the best, but I can certainly try Andre! We will be eating breakfast there and probably at least one or two lunches.

That's fine, just as long as I can read the names and prices. Even a camera phone would probably be fine.
