I was at WDW this past March and I was able to get a bounce back for this month. So that is only 7 months difference.

I've just been able to confirm my stay dates / resort. & it looks like we will be at PO. We originally booked POR but swapped today to POFQ. We arrive 2/21 & depart 3/4. How is the bus service? I read on another thread the busses go through POR & take forever getting to the parks?

I have never had any problems with bus service at POFQ. Of the times I have stayed at POFQ we have only shared the bus twice with POR and it really didn't take that much longer to get to the parks.

S/P/D stands for "Stay, Play, Dine" - I don't know what the amount is, but it's a package discount (room, tix, dining) as opposed to a room only discount.

My experience the 2nd week of Feb this year was that the buses only went through POR at certain times of day (usually the slower, mid-day periods when fewer people are coming and going). I wish I'd kept track, because I don't think we ever shared a bus during the morning park-opening hours. I didn't stay at any park till closing this last trip; I think we did share sometimes when returning to the resort earlier in the evening (esp. from Epcot), but POFQ is the first drop-off. I had no complaints with the bus service, never had to wait long for one, and even when we did the POR loop, it didn't feel like it took that much longer. (Admittedly, I'm on vacation and so happy not to be driving that I'm pretty relaxed about the buses.)

We have found that the times we had to go thru POR has gotten less with every trip since our 1st in 1998. The last couple of trips we only shared during the off peak times and even then we just plan an extra 10 minutes or so to get to the park we want to go to.

Even when the buses do share with POR, it only adds an extra 10-12 minutes to the journey.

Staying at FQ for the very first time in January. I have stayed at CSR the last two times I have visited and loved it. My sister's family has us all booked at FQ and we are excited and can't wait for our trip. But I am a little bit of a bedding snob the bedding at CSR is nice and soft and fluffy. I HATE that thin scratchy bedding and it's hard to tell from the pics how the bedding is at FQ so if someone could let me know that would be great. Thanks so much.

It's currently only available to Disney Visa card holders. It opens up to the general public on October 8th.

We just left POFQ this week. We didn't share with POR at all and I have to say that the bus service at POFQ was the best I have ever experienced at Disney.

The bedding was not scratchy to me, and at home I sleep on no less than 600 thread count Egyptian cotton.

We are trying to figure out the P/S/D discount for when it comes out Oct 8. We currently have FQ booked with an AAA 20% room only discount. wDW is only giving FQ a 5% discount
But, on the psd promo, trying to figure out the cost of the components, we took out price of 2 day park ticket, as we will use them to renew our AP next August. So it seems room discount is same as POR, 25% and DDP works out to around $42 per person, per night. If our Disney Math is correct

So if it is, we will switch to this promo when it comes out.

Thanks Andre for the information. I agree the old postcards and maps are really beautiful!

I will be staying at PORFQ for the first time this February 12-17. I wish it wasn't President's week but that is when my son's high school band is set to march in the MK parade.
