Technically there aren't really any Standard rooms in building 5 (other than perhaps an odd stairwell-facing room) but you never know, they might give you a pixie dust upgrade anyway if you have requested it.

A cab would probably be easiest, but otherwise the course is located just across the road from the Swan hotel, so you could get a bus to a park or to Downtown Disney and change there for a Swan/Dolphin bus.

What buildings are most of the Standard rooms? Thinking if we cannot make sure we get a Mansion standard room at the POR than we will go with POFQ standard. We really like both but do not want the Alligaor Bayou rooms at all. Not my thing!

Basically any of the ones with rooms facing out toward the parking lots - 1, 3, 4 and 7. But don't worry, if you request a mansion building at POR and explain very clearly that you really don't like the concept of the Alligator Bayou area, you should be fine. Might be worth sending them a fax a few days before you arrive to reiterate your request too.

Thank you SO much! I have been to your site many times and can't thank you enough for the time and energy you put into it. I probably won't make up my mind until it the packages are announced for 2013. We are going Feb 2013 and I need 2 rooms- 1 for 4 people (2 adults and 2 Disney adults) and 1 for me. We need some privacy and could never comfortably fit into the Bayou room for 5 anyway. So I am hoping for 2 connecting rooms either in the standard rooms Mansions at POR or standard POFQ!

Does POFQ have the new pod-style coffee makers?

Requested our rooms today, building 4 or 5, corner room! Fingers crossed that we get our choice.

Anyway, I have a question... our first day we are going to see the Hoo-de-doo review. What is the best way to get from POFQ there?? Also, how long should we leave to get there, our tickets are already paid for.

Thank you!

You should always give yourself up to an hour or maybe more to get to any ADR on property, just incase busses are later than usual or something. The best way I think to get to HDDR from POFQ is taking a bus to MK and then there is a boat that goes straight to Fort Wilderness so that is the way I'm taking when I go to HDDR from FQ in September.

So excited. Just booked French quarter for dec 18 to 23.

I wondered if someone can help me, I have hip problems and was thinking of putting in a request for building 4 (from the information I have read on this thread ) as I thought this would have us close to the main building. Am I able to request building 4 if I have booked standard room?

I understand there is no guarantee but thought it doesn't hurt to ask.

Yes, that's fine. Make sure you mention that your request is on medical grounds to keep your walking distances down.

Just out of curiosity, since we requested an AB room, what is it that you don't like about it?
