I've learned & saved a ton on here! I'm on it everyday checking things out. We went down fir 3 days last year but we stayed with my FIL an hour south of Disney. We wanted to stay on sure this time. We can't wait to go...I honestly don't know if we'd have time for the carriage ride anyway.

Food and Wine tends to make Epcot World Showcase fairly busy - especially mid-late afternoon onwards, and at weekends. But not anywhere near Xmas/Easter busy. Otherwise, it doesn't have much impact on the other parks.

Great thread! I'm waiting on my TA to book March 1-8 at POFQ. We stayed at POP in December of 2010 and I can't do a value again. We were hoping for the CR, but wowzie--soooo expensive. So unless they come out with a stellar discount, it will be POFQ for us. We are from Louisiana and are super excited about the resort. I showed my girls (ages 3 and 7) the pictures of POFQ and POR and they chose FQ!
Can't wait to hear about others trips until then!

To fax or not to fax - that is the question! We booked a standard room and have done the online check-in. We requested a non-parking lot room on a high floor. Do you think we should send a fax in? I don't think I'd request a specific building; just a nice view. What do y'all think?

I can't see why you wouldn't.

Hi gang,
CBR man here, but we have decided to give a new resort a try. We have decided on French quarter or riverside, I'm kind of leaning with French quarter. Just wanted to say hi to all here!
It will be 5 of us, with 2 adults and 3 kids with one being a infant and were going for Ds 13th in Oct. Plan to stay Oct 1- 9. I cannot wait.

It will be a family trip with all in all, over 21 family members spread out at this and other Disney resorts. Not to worry we've done big groups before. We usually meet for breakfast or lunch and then do all our own thing in the parks and then meet at night for a night cap or dip in the pool. Look forward to seeing some of your there!!! Plan on buying my Mnsshp tix tonight or tomorrow.

I'm trying to weigh my options for Halloween. To buy tickets to the MNSSHP, it's going to cost us another $300. Not sure I want to spend that...I probably will but...does POFQ do any kind if Halloween things on Halloween night? I just called them and the CM said they normally don't but to call back closer to our trip to see if there's anymore information.

You were probably just speaking to a CM in the main WDW incoming call center, not anyone at POFQ.

POFQ and POR both do a number of special activities for Halloween, mostly during the daytime but they do theme the campfires and outdoor movies to Halloween in the evening. See the archived schedules at www.portorleans.org/recreation-activites-schedule.php for an idea of what they did last year.

However, the Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom is wonderful, with a great parade and fireworks show and lots to see and do. I'd highly recommend going at least once if you can, although I'd suggest maybe avoiding the one on the 31st October itself as that day will be packed - choose one a little earlier if you can (early week days are usually slightly quieter).

So, is anyone planning on going to Elliot Dyson's last night at Scat Cat's Club tonight? I really do hope this is only "au revoir" rather than goodbye, and that Disney do the right thing and bring him back after the lobby refurb.

I'm curious as you're all discussing this gentleman leaving the Scat Cat Club. Does that mean after the lobby refurb there will be no form of entertainment there? Was he the sole entertainer, I guess is what I'm asking.

We are looking to go to the Halloween party on either the 27th or the 29th of October. We'll buy our tickets once we get closer to our date or when we get to our resort. I was just wondering if the resorts were doing anything special on Halloween night. Thank you for the link. At least I know they do something on Halloween night. We'll either stay at the resort or go to one of the other parks that night. But at least I have an idea.

Hi, Everyone! I'm getting more and more excited about my first stay at POFQ as each day passes!

I'm looking at the menus for Sassagoula Floatworks. I see some items are only served for dinner. At what time is it officially dinner time there? Thanks!

The parties typically sell out closer to Halloween, I'd recommend buying your tickets earlier if you plan on attending!
