I don't mind if kids are in the hot tub as long as they treat it like a hot tub and NOT like a swimming pool. Of course, I'm not to shy to tell them if they are not using proper hot tub etiquette (much to the embarrassment of my family!)

Sounds like you had a great time. I agree with your assessment of POFQ vs. POR!
ashleyrm, I hope you have a wonderful time with your DH this weekend!!!
And ITA, about the hot tub thingie, too! It's NOT a swimming pool for small children.

Glad to hear such great reviews about POFQ. We are staying at that resort for the first time in August and we are really looking forward to it. It will be a surprise trip to Disney for our two sons. I can't wait to see the look on my oldest son's face when he hears we are headed to Disney!

For boys our age, is there a certain building we should ask for?

weheartdisney, go to Andre's website which is portorleans.org
And then click on maps and directions. There will be a map of the two sister resorts.
To me, buildings #5, 4,3, or 2 seem to be in the middle of the action.

Hope this helps!

The resort is so pleasantly compact that there's no real difference between one building or another, in my opinion. The very farthest building from the food court is only a 3 minute 20 second walk. There's no such thing as an inconvenient building.
