Any idea if they sell Dixie Blackened Voodoo lager anywhere at POFQ? Haven't had that delicious brew since my last time in New Orleans and I'd love to find it there!

TIA!

Hi Rosie -

I stayed at POFQ during my solo trip in May and I fell in love with the resort .

I love that the resort is small, the bus stop is covered, POFQ usually has its own bus (only shared with POR once during my trip), and the boat to DTD was awesome!!!

You are going to love it!

Yup. I haven't booked yet because I'm not exactly sure of when I will be going.

I''ll be solo at WDW May 1st-9th. Still undecided where I'm staying though. I've made solo trips to POFQ that last two Mays and loved it, but just got back from a solo trip at CSR (Sept 26th-Oct 4th) and loved it there too. I'm also thinking about PORS. I stayed there Sept '08 with family, but not sure If I'd like it for a solo trip. Decisions, decisions!

Hi, Aubriee! Rosie and I will be there April 28th leaving May 5 - so a "Grannie Meet" is a must!! What fun!

Don't think I'd be as comfortable at PORS solo either - it is so spread out and some of the rooms can feel somewhat isolated. I was there for a few ngts solo and requested a room close to the Lobby because I would be alone - never walked so far to a room in 28 yrs of WDW Resort stays!They did move me to a perfect location in bldg 14 later that afternoon though.

FQ is just so darned charming! Sure hope to see you there - let the planning begin?

We stayed at PORS and FQ in April 2005 - both rooms were freshly redone and had been finished just a few months prior to our stay.

The bldg at PORS had just been completed and the room still had a new smell.

Refurbishment was completed the end of 2004.

Hope this helps!

Hi Rosie!! I think you would love FQ!! It is our favorite & have stayed there the past 3 years. The only reason we want to stay at BC is because it is our 25th & want to be close to Epcot & have always wanted to stay there. But we will definitely go to POFQ again. You get the busses first in the am & usually dropped off first at night. Elliott Dyson is wonderful & plays Wed. thru Sat. nights, the hot tub is great, the boat to DTD is wonderful!!! You would love it. I thought you were staying at POP??
