We returned from POFQ on Saturday. We were not offered ME pick up at DTD. I saw an area for ME at Pleasure Island. We didn't have a fridge, but were told, just call if we didn't have a working one in our room. We passed up on the call, but I saw one outside for the room next door. There was a one in five chance the room would have a working fridge.

I am not a card holder, it's an option I consider every time FD looms.
I know getting in early is key especially for POFQ. We love the resort and it's perfect for our vacation style.
That was great you were able use the discount at POFQ even after the Disney Visa holders had their chance.

When we went in 2012 I called about the free dining which they had that year and was told I had to switch resorts. We REALLY wanted to stay at POFQ - our daughter had done research on all the moderates plus my husband and son had stayed at the CBR previously and felt it was a nice resort but way too spread. We had only stayed off site and at the Polynesian many, many years ago but felt the Polynesian was out of our realistic price range - back when we stayed at the Polynesian there was this work related discount called "The Magic Kingdom Club" and the cost was a lot more affordable back then - plus they did not have all the resorts they do now. Anyway - my daughter called back and got a different CM who applied the free dining discount no problem! My daughter explained that she had just found out she was pregnant with her second child and we had to change all our plans and that is how we stumbled upon the free dining - we were true WDW "newbies."

Thanks for the information - truly helpful

We check in on the 25th and can't wait!!!! We were lucky enough to get a FD PIN and I was able to snag a room at POFQ. Our first stay there and we're so excited.

This is only our fourth trip and the other three were all at Values. Don't get me wrong--we had a great time and I'd be perfectly fine staying at any of them again. But now all four of us are considered "adults". We really enjoying having the full DP and not just the QS---like that break for one sit-down each day! By the time we paid to upgrade all four of our plans, the price difference to stay at a moderate was minimal (less than $100 for 6 nights!). They didn't have any standard rooms available within the deal, so I did have to get a Garden View, but that's fine by us!

Soooo hoping to book a BB to be able to do this again next year!

We are booked Sept 17-28th with FD we originally booked thru the 25th, but had a change in out schedules and ability to change our flights fr no extra cost so we added on a few extra days!!!

In order to add the days though, we did have to upgrade to a riverview room. So which is the best groundfloor riverview room to stay in??? I am going to fax my request for a groundfloor room since I have to rent an ECV

I'm so excited!!!

My understanding was that River View rooms were on 2nd and 3rd floor. I could be mistaken however.

We had a river view first floor last year right by the boat dock.
