Thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread. It's really helping me to get excited! I just went this morning to reserve my August trip to the All Stars, but I can go to POFQ for less money in June with that 3 days free promotion. I'm so thrilled not to have to wait for the entire summer to get to Disney and hoping the weather is a little cooler in early June. I wasn't expecting POFQ, but now that I'm reading all about it, I'm really happy with my decision. Thanks everyone!!

Coffee?

I've heard that POFQ has horrible in-room coffee and I'm planning on bringing my own down. Do I need paper filters for the 4 cup machines in the rooms?

We returned a couple of weeks ago from POFQ. The rooms have 4 cup coffee makers and use the basket style filters. We also bring our own coffee, raw sugar, 1/2n1/2, and filters; then we buy a couple of glass Disney coffee mugs to use in the room.

Have fun!
