It was so fun to bump into you. I hope you are having a great end to your trip. We are missing WDW, I'm already thinking about POR for 2014.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

I luckily don't have to do much with my hair as it is short mostly straight and very low maitenance, however I travel with a cell/ipad/ipod/camera (sometimes 2)/and the previously mentioned cpap all of which charge from an outlet. I am an electricity hog and I have no excuse.

power outlets - King room

I'd also like to chime in about king rooms and power outlets... Are there power outlets located on both sides of the bed in a King room?

We just returned from our week at POFQ, and we are sad to be back!

This was our first non-monorail-deluxe trip since 2008. Three years of 40% off codes were just too good to pass up, but those days seem to be gone for now....

I wondered how it would feel to go back to our favorite moderate after three years at deluxes (with wonderful upgrades for the last two years)... and I have to say it was nice to get back to POFQ!

The room was lovely, and we did not miss the extra space of POLY or CR. The food court was better than the quick service offerings at the deluxes (though DD missed the flatbread pizzas so we made a side trip to CR for lunch on MK day).

Theming of the entire resort was wonderful, as were the CM's.

WiFi did not work in our room at all. We had to be outside or in the lobby/foodcourt, but that was OK as I just used it to check email. Better than no internet at all.

The main difference was transportation (obviously). We had gotten very spoiled by the use of the monorail, especially at MK. Bus service was overall very good. There was one day, that bus transport was just odd.

Going home from MK, that day, we were waiting at the FQ spot, and for whatever reason, buses are backed up so that the OKW bus is in front of our stop. The bus drivers all get off and yell to/at each other. One driver says that the POFQ bus is behind him. Well, instead of waiting, we see the POFQ bus pull out and leave completely empty. We have been waiting 15-20 minutes at that point, and figure he is just circling back around to get us after there is room. But he leaves and doesn't come back. It is an additional 15-20 minutes till the next bus. So the next bus gets there, and before we pull away, another bus driver comes over and complains/fusses to our bus driver. Couldn't hear about what- there just seemed to be lots of frustration among drivers that day!

Any bus issues we had seem to be related to MK. Otherwise, bus service was quite smooth. I will say the only times this trip I was wishing we were still at Poly or CR was trying to get to/from MK!

So overall we still love the POFQ!
