Welcome! I'll get you added to the first post. I've never stayed at POFQ, but there is a great website portorleans.org and there's a Port Orleans thread on the Resorts page. You can ask that question there and get great answers.

Just let me know once you solidify things! As for the MVMCP, I'm not sure. Maybe because of the crowds? Although it's a hard ticket event, so it's not like that's not controllable. I'll have to look back at some historical data.

I would vote for POFQ. We stayed there 2 yrs ago during Nov. and sometimes shared a bus w/POR, but POFQ was always the 1st pick up which would guarantee that you and your mother would always be able to get on w/her scooter. A nice compact layout and imo quieter. The hot tub is also kind of secluded away from the pool. And I second looking at port orleans.org. Lots of excellent info. If you choose POR, I would recommend paying the extra for a preferred room because some of the rooms are very far from the lobby/food court/restaurant area! Have fun!!

We booked for November 23 through the 29th. A little nervous, first time going with a large group, used to just the five of us. One family member traveling has already said how much he can't stand crowds...it'll be fine and fun, we're going to be in Disney, right?

Thanks for the info. I will look into the POFQ. As far as the walking goes, since my mother will have the scooter I don't think she will complain about the walk. But for me and my son I guess we could use this as a way to work off all the food we will be eating

Congrats and give the one member a Disney guide book so he can learn about it. Rope drop will be your best friend.

So many wonderful celebrations! I prefer the grounds at POR. We stayed at POFQ, and I wasn't that crazy about it. We also love CBR though, and that is considered the worst moderate because of the size.

We usually go with a large group. I enjoy it that way. Just be sure not to plan touring together continuously. That gets very difficult with a large group, being it is unlikely you will all have the same interests.

Add me in on the fun! Kristin here- traveling with DH- Steve and our two kids Sophja who when we arrive will be 11 and our new baby Lucy who will be 11 months on her first trip. We have yet to nail down the dates or resort. But it will be somewhere between 11/10 and 11/23 . We definitely want to stay on site. MK area would be ideal but Art of Animation looks very cool, DH wants Polynesian (he hasn't been since he was about 10 and that's where they stayed).

I would love to be added to the Facebook group if I can!!!

Welcome aboard! Just let us know once you nail down your date and resort. I would love to stay at the Poly, but it doesn't fit my budget. lol

I see you are from Conway....I grea up in Kingston (near the Mass. border) and my dad and & grandfather helped build Seabrook (that's why we moved up there - they built the local plant here, too).

Hi Kristin, I've heard the Poly is really great! My name is Christine. We have only stayed at moderates so far and are planning to stay at Coronado Springs this trip. Mostly because of the pool for dd(10) and the hammocks for me(42), lol!! Maybe we can chat on FB about having girls 10 yrs apart as we will be adopting our dd's biological sister when she is born in May! We have a busy 10 months to get through before our trip!

We'll be there in November. The dates and hotel are TBD.

We're saving money by not hiring a maid and cleaning the house ourselves. We put money in a WDW account every week. At least, this is how it started - Sandy screwed us up, and we hadn't restarted. I did move a chunk of money into the account, though, so we are about where we should be.

With the three day weekend coming up, I think it's time to re-start.

The hotel and dates are TBD because it depends on how much money we save, AND if there's free dining (likely). Saved money also goes to spending money. We're likely to want to stay in CSR because we liked it so much last time, so more money could be an extra day. Our goal is a solid week.

Please add us to the list. We'll be coming with my BFF and her family. They are first-timers; hope I don't overwhelm them. We're staying at Boardwalk Villas from the 2nd - 9th and then since school is out on the 11th, DD and I will be staying another couple nights at AoA.

Happy planning, all!
