How potent are the hair dryers at FQ? I have very curly hair that I need to tame in the mornings, should I bring my own hair dryer?

Overall, however, the resort was as great as always. Just bring your patience.
If you got on the boat to Riverside, doesn't it then go to DTD . Not sure, this will be our first stay at FQ, but we've stayed at Riverside 3 times.

If anyone knows the answer, please post, would be good to know for our January trip.

Yes the boat does go on to DTD, but as it's technically a one-way trip you might be asked to get off and queue to re-board if there are a lot of people waiting to get on at Riverside.

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?

Just booked our trip for May at POFQ. We've never stayed in either resort but it looks wonderful. In September we stayed at CSR and I was not a fan of the large resort size, so FQ seems more what I am looking for in size and amenities. We have a 2 and 4 year old who utilize the pool, and we tend to head to the main building fairly often so centralized location is important.

We stayed there a few weeks ago for the same reason. I have a 3 and 5 year old and the resort was perfect.

This happened during our SB trip - nobody could ride to POR and stay on to go to DTD - needed to get back in line. Glad we did not try that one!

We just booked POFQ for march 5-10. So excited -it's the first time we are staying there! Im sorry if this has been asked, as i haven't had time to read all the posts. Do they have activities at the pool for the kids? We stayed at ASMu last time and my boys loved the games and movies at the pool. Thanks!

We are booked at POFQ for the first time Jan 30-Feb 10. Last time we stayed in a pirate room at CBR. I liked that resort on our first stay there but then last time the pirate room was just too far away and soured me on the resort. So I am looking forward to something much smaller
