Rooms looked great (last stay at this resort in 2000).

Did not notice any new overwhelming smells of paint.

Room cleaned by 2pm everyday and we received towel animals!

Many hidden Mickeys in room also.

Shared bus with Riverside only to Animal Kingdom late night.

Food court food was good.

Great Moderate resort!
Did you also have the room request in your reservation or did you just do a faxed request? I'm glad to see that the room assigner is looking at both the faxes and hopefully typed requests that are called into 407wdisney!!

Just got back from POFQ and it is my favorite Disney hotel I've stayed in by far! I requested a refurbed room and the cm checking me in was so nice, he asked me what floor we'd prefer and everything. I was in building 7, less than 5 minute walk everywhere. The room was so nice, and you could see Illuminations straight ahead from our room! We enjoyed the food court as well, everything we had was delicious. Our bus service was for the most part really good, and the boat to DTD is wonderful as always. It was so peaceful! Definitely will stay here on my next trip, but nothing planned yet

Can't wait to see the pics! Requested Bldg. 4 for the end of the month. Thanks in advance for posting them and enjoy your vacation.

Can I ask you a big favor? Would you be willing to test the water in the pool and let us know whether it's warm or not? In addition, if you take the boat to Downtown Disney, does it stop at Saratoga Springs both up and back?

Thanks for your help!!!!!

The boat from POR/POFQ doesn't stop at Saratoga Springs - up or back. You would get off at DTD and get on another boat to SSR (there's also a walking path from DTD to SSR; it's a very nice, relaxing walk).

Oh- And we took the boat to DTD three times, and didn't stop at SSR at all.

Thanks for the info. Haven't been to POFQ since 2008 and wasn't sure about the boats stopping at SSR. I remember seeing a dock on the left on the way down to DTD after passing by the Treeshouses. Wasn't aware of the walking path. I love to walk, so for me, it is an adventure. DH & DS15 not so sure!

If I recall, I think there is a boat ride from Old Key West?? Not sure on that one either. Would be nice to stop in and check out the resorts for the future.

Can't wait to go at the end of the month--NO MORE SNOW

Thanks again!

Thanks for the info. We'll be there the end of the month and wondered if the pool would be warm enough. It would be kind of an adventure to swim in a nice warm pool in cool temps.

Trying to remember about the boat situation. Want to check out the areas by boat if possible.

Glad you had fun in December--a whole different experience at the holidays I bet.

There is a boat to and from SSR and DTD but I believe it is down by Pleasure Island.

Requested Bldg. 4 on reservation, but no fax. Is there a certain number to use?

Thanks for your report. I'm getting so excited now. I didn't realize you could see Illuminations. What floor/room were you in?

We were there that same weekend too (at WL) and it was FREEZING!!! It was fine the first few days we got there and after that rain on the 12th it was only in the 40s the rest of our trip!! I'm hoping our March one to POFQ will be better..I guess the only good thing was that since we were at WL + Christmas, we got a lot of use out of the lobby and decorations!
