If you end up at a building far from the bus stops or food court, can you rent a bike for the week? It would be cool if you could and lock it up at the food court or bus stop and save on your feet going back and forth!
Wouldn't be worth it. Even from the furthest buildings you are MAYBE 5-7 minutes at a comfortable walk from the food court/bus stop. POFQ is so compact which is one thing I love about it.

I've been searching for a place to buy the pods for the new coffeemakers since dh has become much more picky about his coffee. I don't think he'll be happy with what is provided. However, I cannot find Cuisinart pods anywhere. Has anyone found them?

Oh jeez - meant to post this on the POR board!
Thanks for the info anyway! Looking at the prices, it totally wouldn't be worth it for the 4 of us.

I found pods last year at Walmart. This year, I may skip in room coffee and use my refillable mug in the mornings. Wish Disney would switch to Keurig; it's much more universal.

I bought Senseo pods at Target--they worked perfectly.

Could I volunteer to be one of your 'last minute items'?

Wishing you a great trip.

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?

I found Cuisinart coffee pods but they look exactly like what is offered in the rooms. I just don't want dh to have to face Nescafe-type "coffee" again. On the last trip, he spent at least $15.00 a day buying real coffee whenever he found a place that sold it.

And I, that thought that I was too OCD, booking my room on the Fantasy (and therefore at POFQ the week before...) 25 months in advance to have the stateroom I wanted!!!!!
So now, I'm finally beating someone with my November 2013 booking by few months but I have to say I'm years ahead of the 2104 one!!!!!

Poussière de fée!

If you ask, housekeeping should give you extras of the Cuisinart [ods. I just happen to prefer the taste of the Senseo ones--I also make my coffee there with bottled water though, so I clearly have some coffee issues
