Since the lobby refurb is almost complete, any word if Elliott Dyson is returning to Scat Cat's Club?

Hi everyone! Just back from my first stay at POFQ June 27-July 2. I have to say going into this trip I was nervous, because I really did not feel like the resort was my taste. But supriseingly I really liked it. I was in building 6. Room 6301, it is a corner room facing the gardens. I had 2 queens. I know I had read on here before leaving that all corner rooms were kings.
This resort really is compact. Nothing really is more than a 4-5 minute walk, and I was not walking fast at all. As far as the bus situation, the only time we shared was going to DTD, and POR was always first pick-up and drop-off. And we also shared one morning going to Epcot. Pofq is truly a romantic resort. I would not hesitate to stay again.

Heard through friends that Elliott is not supposed to come back. We will miss him so much. We always visited POFQ even when we were not staying there on all our trip to WDW just to listen to him. Disney really did a bad thing getting rid of him.

We are supposed to stay there in November and it will not be the same.

According to Elliot, his contract was terminated and he is not coming back. He is supposed to let us know if anything changes or if he will be performing anywhere else around Orlando in the evenings.

No, you read that all of the King Bed rooms are located on corners - not that all of the corner rooms have King Beds. i.e. there are more corners than Kings!

Well, I went ahead and booked POFQ for Thanksgiving week! We have only ever stayed at WL and BC. I hope we love POFQ! I really really did not want to book without a discount. We arrive the Thursday night before Thanksgiving so if there is a free dining promotion then we would most likely arrive in time. I just don't feel good paying for these inflated prices, I don't feel like I am getting a very good deal

checked in at 10:45am (online check-in 10am) and our room was ready! We got our request for building 5 and the same room we've had twice already this year! I love walking out the door and seeing the beautiful river!! Building 5 seems a little busy but the real test will be the food court tomorrow!

went to DTD by way of boat which took 20 mins to get on the boat. When we left, the boats were closed bc of the weather so we took a bus which took just over an hour. Next time we will drive, lol. Other than that, it has been a good day!! The lobby refurb is blocked and can't see anything. The CM had us sit at a table and chairs outside the bar while she got our packet. It went very smoothly!

I hope Elliot's back but it didn't sound promising when I called and asked POFQ

This is sad to hear. I was hoping that he might return after the refurb of the check-in area was completed. It will be interesting to see if POFQ gets new entertainment in the lounge or if this change was just another overall cutback.

Do you know if a Disney Gift card is accepted? (I already have my quarters packed...lol)

You might see if AAA is offering discounts, assuming you are a member. We booked our June stay on Orbitz for POFQ, better discount than offered through Disney at the time, and had no problems at all.
