. Thanks Andre! 21 more days till we check into our 1st stay at FQ! POR mansion section has been a fav when doing moderate stay, but looking forward to trying FQ, and still be a comfortable walk away from POR in case we get homesick, .

I've requested an outside corner room. Fingers crossed.

And only 17 more days till we leave for Ft. Lauderdale. Going to start packing. Hoping for some

Wow, Andre! I am impressed! You did a lot of work to accomplish this. Maybe other resort threads will follow your lead. I've tried to find exactly this kind of information for friends and always came up empty. Thank you!

I got a Disney visa discount for our April trip. We only saved $200 but better than no discount at all.

I know the Unofficial Polynesian site has full building layout maps (which I think the DIS does not like links to... it's the one run by 'Tikiman' Steve anyway) but I don't know about the others.

Yes, it did take quite a while (the Christmas break helped) and involved cross-referencing quite a lot of photos and other stuff. I think it's now fully accurate, but if anyone spots any errors please let me know. Hopefully it'll help answer more of those room locations questions which keep popping up here anyway.

We had our first POFQ visit in November '12, and we fell in love! Can't wait to go back!

Andre, that is awesome! Good work!

I would be surprised if your friend was going to Rope Drop/Park Open and still sharing that many bus rides with POR. Perhaps they sleep in??

That's what I was wondering too. We were there early December and the only bus we shared was one afternoon bus we took to DHS

Oh, they definitely slept in. They are late night people even though the husband is disabled by a traumatic brain injury. In fact, he fell out of his wheelchair there at POFQ because he went over a curb and tumbled.

So close!

Getting really excited. Only 21 days left to go! This will be our first trip with my two kids. We are staying at Port Orleans French Quarter January 24th-29th.

What does everyone think the weather will be like? I hope in the lower to mid 70s during the day!

That's no good! Hope he's ok!!

My bus experience and disboard findings are that the resort shares most often only after the AM departure rush and before the PM return rush.

We spent 12/24-12/31 at POFQ and loved it! Had an outside corner second floor room in building three. Very peaceful resort! The only time shared a bus was 2x middle of the day, to DHS and ak. The rest were all direct. Enjoyed our stay a lot!

I used the visa discount too (code was Z81). I have a vacation package with dining plan & tickets for easter week. When i first called my price went down $257 on a 7 night stay. The I called back and added an 8th night with another day of dining for $169 more than my credit. Not as big of a discount if I switched to Riverside, but wanted the smaller resort since I will have 2 small kids with me.
