On the Disney website, under reservations; there is a number listed for room only and one for package reservations, depending on the type of reservation you have.

Just returned from our 11-24 to 11-30 at the French Quarter. We were in building 6, room 6112 and it was lovely. We have so many beads and the kids made a wish every day. I loved the Magical Express and the ability to get your boarding passes right at the hotel. We had friends that were offsite and had to go through the entire process at the airport. It took them an extra hour to get to the gate.

It was a great walk along the river to Riverside. The pool was fun for the kids. I preferred the Hot tub especially on the 58 degree evening. The food court was very nice and never too crowded. The decor was creepy for the kids at first but then they had fun with it. We had three meals and all were very good. The muffalleta was delish. And of cours the beignets were awesome.

The rooms were nice. The only downside, there were stains on the chair seats and the bench under the window. OH and the granite threshold from the carpet to the tile is deadly slippery if you are not careful. The only noise I heard from neighboring rooms was the toilet and that was no big deal. I never heard outside activity when we were in our room. The walk to the bus was short. We only shared the bus with Riverside during the afternoon bus to and from Epcot and Downtown Disney. But we were the last ones to get on and the first to get off for EPCOT. We took the boat to DTD and that was okay. Much to long of a wait. But the route is very pretty. OKW Treehouse villas are cool.

We would stay again during the cooler season but I do prefer the Caribean Beach Resort Pool during the warmer seasons.

Thanks for all the information that is on this thread. We will hopefully be visiting WDW in two to three years. If we stay during November again this is definately the resort of choice.

King room locations?

Okay, I just got done looking through about half of the POFQ picture thread. It seemed to me that every room that had King beds also had 2 windows. makes me think all kings are on corner rooms. Is that correct?

We have a king room booked for our upcoming anniversary trip and I think it would be awesome to geta king room, on a corner, with a river view.

Yeah, the river view is just a little wish, not a deal breaker at all.

POFQ on NYE?

Is there anything at POFQ on new years eve?
We are arriving that day and I'm not sure if we would be early enough to get into a park. Can you see any fireworks from there?
Is there a resort schedule for December out now?

See if Bob Jackson is performing at the River Roost at POR on NYE. He puts on a great show! If I were ringing in the New Year at WDW and wanted to avoid the craziness of being in a park, I'd be at the River Roost!

No, there are King rooms that are not on corners. Just put a request in for "corner room, river view" and keep your fingers crossed.

At New Year's last year I think they used the big outdoor video screen to show the New Year's Eve TV broadcast, which went down well so I wouldn't be surpised if they did it again. Individual date schedules are generally only officially posted on the day, although I sometimes get kindly sent them in advance for the website. For the general monthly schedules (including December 2012) please see http://www.portorleans.org/recreatio...s-schedule.php.

Thanks! I may do that next time I call in to add/change things on our reservation.

Can't wait for our first stay at POFQ. We will be there jan 2-12th. This will probably be our last family trip to WDW for quite some time and I wanted to try a different resort. Would have loved to book a deluxe resort but couldn't justify the additional expense. Just one month to go. Can hardly wait to receive my packet and luggage tags.
