Yes. In cooler weather you will need a jacket. We were comfortable walking around DTD but when we rode the boat back to POFQ we were freezing.

GirlDreamer. Why not write on a little note (please don't mention the tour, it's a surprise) and sneekily hand it to the check-in person.

Sorry, there is no publically accessible general email address for the resort. If you don't want to phone them, you can send a fax though. Phone calls from the UK are cheap enough if you use a prefix dialling code though (I use www.telediscount.co.uk - no registration needed, and calls from the UK to the US cost 1p/minute)

If you do phone, make sure you ask to be connected to someone on-site at the resort if your question cannot be answered by the central call centre which screens all incoming calls.

Sounds like you had a lovely time. Might be worth posting your message in the Riverside thread too (this is the French Quarter one).

M wife and I are staying at the French Quarter 28th October - 12th November, I can't wait. It's a holiday for our first wedding anniversary so I'm looking at ways to make it really special. I'm loving this forum it has so many great ideas.

That ended surprising dh. Maybe you could send DBF on an errand while you take care of check in.
Thank you for the heads up! Will have to think about if I should use the note idea, or to ask him to wait with the bags or something :P Does he need to be there for check in though? I managed to get his name as the main one on the reservation as I put his name in first...

I have a random question - I'm one of those people who are obsessed with hotel soap and shampoo and I know Art of Animation and Pop have gotten the new bottles with the Mickey ears and I was wondering if anyone who has been recently could tell me if they have the new shampoo or the still the same blue shampoo bottle and round white soap? Maybe have a picture to post? Thanks!

My DD and I were at POFQ July 14 - July 22nd. My DD has a way to get Mousekeeping to give her a box of Soap and Shampoo before we leave the resort. This is what they offer as of the week we were there.

Question, Noticed you are from Arkansas. What part? I graduated from UA at Fayettville. I may live in Texas but I truly am a Razorback Hog..... Forever and ever.....

DD walks up to Mousekeeping office with the box and shares with them we are leaving today and can I have 25 shampoo, 25 facial soap and 25 blue bag soaps. They asked her this time what room are you in? She tells them and the Mousekeeping Supervisor told her let me have the box and I will knock on your door in 30 minutes. Low and Behold Mousekeeping comes back with the box full. DD gives her 10.00 and thanks her.

DD has done this the past few years and gets away with it. I do not have the nerve to ask because I know they will just say no like they are supposed to.

Once time my hubby asked for a few extra coffee packets (before they started the Keurig pods) and they brought him a whole garbage bag of coffee packets!!!

I thought I read this awhile ago somewhere else....can anyone else confirm that you can transfer to another boat for the West End?


Last year we took the boat but the walked ALL the way over to Wolfgang Puck o a hot August evening (walking into the sun). It felt like we were walking on the sun, no joke.
