I will be there with DH 9/2-9/8. His first Disney trip and my 3rd trip in less than a year! Staying @ POFQ. I love it there. Second trip stayed @ AKL - I missed POFQ. So, I am "going home" this time. I am a resident of Louisiana and POFQ is so far my favorite resort.

That made me smile. We also refer to POFQ as our "home" resort

You don't have long now

Ok, we leave in 2 days and already requested a refrigerator but now we really need one. DD is on antibiotics for an ear infection and it needs to be kept in the frig. Is there someone I can contact since now it's a need and not just a request?

I saw in the FAQ's that the Water taxi's don't start running to DTD until 10:10 am. Is this the same for the buses as well? I want to be at DTD early for the launch of the Vera Bradley line on the 21st (7:30 am)

Is my only option going to be to take a cab? How much would that cost?

Call the resort phone number (in post #1) and ask to speak to someone in the on-site room allocation team (as opposed to the remote call center that will initially answer your call). Alternatively, you can fax them directly (again, number in first post).

At worst, you can ask at the front desk and they will sort it out for you, but it might take longer.

Buses do start earlier, but getting to DTD for 7:30am might be pushing it a bit - you might want to get a cab to be safe. Around $10-$15 should cover it.

Sorry, I'm afraid that is absolutely not correct, I assume you spoke to a call-center cast member? Only about 50% of POFQ rooms have working fridges at the moment. Another 500 or so are due at the end of this month, but I assume those will be split between POR and POFQ.

Is POFQ part of the FP+ test for the end of Sept/beginning of Oct? We're there from 9/29-10/3 and don't want to miss it, if so!

Not so far, only POR from 3rd Sept at the moment. POFQ won't be too far behind, but unlikely as soon as 29 Sept.

Just checked in at POFQ today. Two rooms, neither had a frig despite requesting one for medical needs (for only one room) via phone 3x over past two weeks. Rooms were in buildings 4 and 7. The front desk doesn't know when you check in if you have a frig. They suggest you call if you do not, and need one.

I called maintenance from the room, and had one within two hours. They said that if the room doesn't already have one, you can only get one for a medical request.

No freezer section at all, to answer another poster's question.
