Question POFQ - how to avoid a room where people smoke outside ?

Not to offend any smokers, but I can not stand the smell of cigarette smoke.

If we stay at POFQ, are there designated smoking areas ?

Which buildings and views are best to avoid smokers ?

Thanks!

All Disney resorts have designated smoking areas (similar to the parks). No one is allowed to even step outside their room to have a smoke. Doesn't mean it won't happen... but, if it does and you have a problem with it, you can go to the lobby and mention it to them.
The smoking sections aren't even usually near the buildings.

If you really want to go all out and avoid the fumes, the resort map they'll give you at check in will have the DSAs on them.
As a smoker, I promise you, I always stay in my designated area

Thanks!

hubby and I are both smokers. we have stayed at all 3 levels. our preference is the moderate resorts. (maybe because we are smokers, and it IS easier and quicker to get to the DSA), but I really think if (when) we quit, we STILL like the mods. we like to open our door and be outside. we find the long indoor hallways a mite depressing. hubby is an early riser, and he likes to walk outside, and a few steps one way or the other, there is a totally dif.l view!
we stayed once at AKL and once at WL, but both times, we had smoking rooms. Dolphin twice.. smoking rooms.
we have only stayed in a deluxe one time since the new rule. Boardwalk villas. and, as I stated, we were on the first floor. just a short walk in either direction to a DSA right outside the door. (but I really wanted a balcony, not a patio. but the better the balcony view, the farther away from a DSA!)
we would love to try AKL again, but I'm not sure how that would work for us. It was a very long walk from our room to the elevator, than a wait for the elevator, then a long walk through the lobby to get outside. ( a lot of hassle for a cig!)
actually, we were at POP last year, on the 4th floor, and it was a hassle too. because 4 flights of stairs is a bit much, or again, a wait for an elevator.
2nd story at a value or moderate is great, cause(for us) one flight of stairs is no big deal)
Just wanted to let smidgy know I had NO bad feelings about YOU! And I think you're clarification was ideal, and right-on! I sooo agree with that explanation of layout!

Here's the link to the PDF map of the Poly. http://www.wdwinfo.com/maps/PolynesianMap.pdf It looks like there are second floor smoking areas at Aoteroa (sic)and Fiji.

And here's the link to the resorts maps in general. http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/

The Link to the Maps is now the second post at the beginning of this thread.. It was in another linked thread at the top of the board (the one that says "resort maps" -- but now it's in both places.

Hope this helps.

Hello! We have standard room at Beach Club booked - any suggestions on a room/area request to have easy access to a DSA? We'll be requesting ground floor, a must for my son. But really want easy access to be able to head out for a smoke late at night but be near room. thanks!
