Have any of you made specific room requests? I haven't because I heard there's really no bad location at FQ. We did book a king room (so hoping we actually get it because I know there aren't many), but didn't bother requesting anything else.

How about you?

We haven't made any requests. I'll be happy wherever they put us and I don't think that there could be a bad location. Although,a corner room would be nice

Funny, because we are also hoping for a corner room I'm really considering doing the on-line check-in, but I'm worried that sure as I do, I'll not get the king room we booked and then we'll tie up the line trying to figure something else out, etc. I don't want to inconvenience others, ya know?

Brand new here! We will be at POFQ from 9/1 - 9/8 with Free Dining! My oldest will be turning 11 on 9/6 so we are going to be celebrating her b-day there! We are not telling our kids until the night before! How is one supposed to keep such a secret for so long?

to our group ... and to the DIS! Have you made ADRs yet?

As far as the secret keeping - I'm so bad about that I could never keep it a secret for that long! I couldn't even keep the ADR @ Biergarten a secret from DH (the only place he requested - was going to tell him I couldn't get it, but I just couldn't take a chance of him being disappointed).

Jump on in and join the conversation - we're a friendly group!

I'm going to see if I can ask a Moderator to move this to "The Happy Dance" section - I didn't realize that's where threads like this one belong. Hopefully you all will follow!

I also love the corner rooms at POFQ. We've been in a few different buildings at the resort, but never found a bad location!

Well,I hope you get a good room. I always wonder if I should make room requests or not. We've always gotten rooms that I've been happy with. The only time I made a request was last month at the beach club. I requested a full balcony and I know they don't have them in many of the rooms but on our trip to AKL we had a balcony with a pool view and we all loved it. When we got to the room it did'nt have the full balcony,no big deal,I know they can't grant all requests but I called the front desk and kindly asked if they had another room for us with the balcony,and they did So,i guess if you are not happy with your room it never hurts to ask if they have something else that meets your requests.

While a corner room would be nice , not had one before , we're quite easy osey about where we end up in this resort.

Do have my LGMH ready to stick in the window , not sure if i'm brave enough to wear one round but i hope to . My brothers think i'm a little nuts wanting to stop and chat to a stranger if i see a green Mickey on their person but i'll give it a whirl....at least once.

Yeah, I have mine ready also, but DH is kind of resistant to this! He's not on the DIS and just doesn't "get it."

This is off topic but I am doing the happy dance today
I just booked a very last minute weekend trip for next weekend 4/20-4/22 at CSR. I'm excited and had to tell people who won't think I'm crazy for going to Disney again. I would have liked to stay at POFQ but they had AP discounts for CSR and CBR and they didn't have anything discounted at the values other than family suites. I told DH that we need to get some use out of these season passes and surprisingly he went for it! Have a great weekend everyone.
