Only 97 days to go!!!!
You're welcome. I hope you love POFQ as much as I do, I can't wait to go back. Love the refurbishment, great to have queen size beds rather than the doubles that were there before; the addition of a shelf under the sinks is really good; the color combinations and the bedspreads look so elegant now. We had a great stay last month, all the CMs were so nice, we requested and were granted a late check out on our departure day, too. Buses were good except for one night after EMH at the MK when we waited 45 minutes!

Did they remove a fountain in order to do the cajun campfire?

I was going to ask the same thing. It looks new to me too!

Nope, all the fountains are still there. The campfire is off the river path behind building 6. We didn't do it, no time this trip, but they do give free marshmallows to kids for toasting.

But I like the trees! I am sad that they took out a perfectly good tree for this. In fact, I'm not real happy about the whole re-landscaping of POFQ that has been mentioned. I absolutely love the landscaping -- it is what "makes" POFQ for me.

Help! We r staying at FQ for Christmas this year and I am trying to figure out what color ornaments to get for our Christmas tree. In some of the pics the bedspread looks really purple and in others it looks more like a burgundy. I was going to do a Mardi Gras themed tree with the purple, teal and gold beads and masks with the little mickey ornaments in those colors as well and this really cool purple tree skirt that they have at Target but am worried that the purple wont work if the bedspread is burgundy. I know, I'm a little obsessed but Christmas at WDW is my families tradition and we've had a bad year so this is really important to me.

Can anyone tell me what the actual color is? Please!

Can we say food issues?

I thought they were more purple. (I hate purple ) But mardi gras colors abound in the resort so going with those color ornaments should be fine.
