Add us in!

Me, my ds(12), and dd (10) will arrive 1/2 to 1/7 staying at POR-- garden view -- so please add me to the list. I would appreciate a room recommendation for POR. I have only read about Oak Manner but don't have a royal room so would love a recommendation. Dh and am oldest (college boy) are staying home. We hope to surprise kids at Christmas. Can't wait! Thanks, Megan

EMH stands for extra magic hours; the additional hours you can access the park when staying on Disney property.

Just to add to the previous post about EMH days and crowd levels, one of the strategies when trying to decide which park to tour on a given day is to try to avoid going to parks that have Extra Magic Hours (both morning and evening hours) as these parks attract larger proportions of guests staying at Disney Resorts on those days. Easywdw.com does a great job explaining and incorporating this in its crowd calendars.

We prefer too cold to too hot -- and we think it's too hot in May! Not thinking we'll brave August anytime soon.

I love easywdw.com -- Josh empowers the reader by giving you the whys and wherefores, but also offers a basic calendar of recommendations for those who just want to know when to go.

Been hunting around for an answer, so I thought I'd come to this thread first. We're staying in POFQ late in January, one of the things I like most about FQ is the dedicated bus service. Is this still the practice during low crowd periods? Or will the buses "merge" with POR? Thanks for the help!

Been meaning to say our jan trip was cancelled. When I tried switching races they were all full. And I didn't feel like biting off more than I can chew. So no Jan trip. I will be coming in Feb instead for the princess half. But no Jan trip this. I will update my Jan PTR to show the ADRs I have before making it a Feb PTR.. If anyone wants them PM me with a time in mind before Friday when I will be canceling all of them.

We have stayed at POFQ three different times of year. Once being in January, once over Labor Day and once in May. The only time we shared buses with POR was early in the morning for AK and HS and then sometimes on the bus ride home for those two parks too. Never did we have to share/merge for MK or Epcot. When we did share POFQ was always first to be picked up or dropped off.

Did you all know that the Osborne Lights ends on January 6, 2013? I just found that out yesterday and was very excited because that is our arrival day. So I made some dining adjustments to make sure we can see the lights again in 2013.
