T-

You made it! But not with great fan fair... So POFQ was not up to Par? That sucks! After having stayed in all levels of accommodations at WDW, I truly feel that there is not much difference between the value & mod's...not enough lets say for $50-75+ a night. We added on to our last trip and stayed at POP for 2 nights and we were kinda thinking it wasn't toooo much different than the 3 other mod's we'd been too (room wise).


I am so happy that Maddie averted the yuck! Know that would have not been a very good start...

I can't wait to hear more.

So I'm getting the feeling that you loved this place

Ahhh that was really nice, now would you get that service at the Poly?

Hey Tracy! It's me, Michelle, mlill, trying out my new screen name. (I wanted to change it before I start my new TR for our October trip.) Wow, I'm stressed out after reading your updates! I think you needed some Lapu's after the travel day you had! Sorry you didn't like POFQ! I know how hard it is to shake that disappointed feeling!!! Here you are, on vacation, and you're upset on your first day! I'm crossing my fingers that you worked some DIS magic with your room situation. I'm glad Maddie pulled thru the sick feeling. Poor baby! I'm looking forward to hearing about your first day in the parks!

Waitin' for more!
-Michelle

P.S. puggymom - I'll PM you and boysmom5150 to see if we can set up our own DIS Meet!

TRACY!
I have been reading in spurts over the weekend and finally got myself to page 6. I am so bummed for you that you didn't like POFQ. We're too big a family to stay there, but we've been to POR. FQ looks nice from the boat, but I can't WAIT to hear about the mousekeeping test. I have cleanliness issues, and if it's gross, I might need a warning up front.

I'm glad Maddie's yucks passed quickly. Your first day sounded like a doosey. I hope it drastically improved (well, far in advance of the 21 Lapus on Saturday!)

Will you forgive me for not quoting as I'd like to? I'm exhausted, but just had to get in on your TR before bed!

Tracy? You have the patience of a saint. For real. Like. Totally. I do NOT know how you do it.

Many bonus points for inclusions of "whilst" and "chewin' tobacker".

POFQ....... not a fan either. POR's lost me, too. And. Once you go Poly, you never want to go back. I get it now.

Okay, I really have to get some work done tomorrow, but I'll be checking in!

LY/MI!!

Bumping, you were on page 2...

So you really werent that impressed with POFQ? I have been thinking about changing our ressie to one of the PO, but not really sure if it is worth the extra money.

Waiting on the ME bus is the worst! It was midnight for us and we were waiting and waiting. Our bus stopped at SSR first too but it then went on to the Poly after POR. So, think of those deluxe people having to wait even longer....

I feel bad that you did not like POFQ at all. I have never been there. I did like POR. The surroundings and all were very beautiful and I would call it a resort. However, I can totally sympathize with you about it not being a deluxe resort. After we stayed at the Yacht Club, we found ourselves comparing things all the time. While we really liked POR, I know we will probably be going deluxe next time....

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to post to let you all know it'll be a few days before I can update this. We're all down with a flu bug and I can barely sit here and type as it is. Maddie's first day of Kinder is tomorrow and today is Andy's birthday.
Thanks for the bump, Jen!
See you all real soon, I hope. OMG I have a funny Waldo story, I'll try to get it up later today.
T.
