I feel the same way as your DH. We stayed at POR last October and beautiful as it was, it just wasn't "home" for us. We spent the entire week wishing we were at POFQ. Just hoping for a PIN or another kind of discount that includes POFQ for next fall.

That's so fustrating, the constant exclusion of FQ for discounts. Lucky for us, FQ was included in the Stay/Play & Dine promo. I was able to get a 20% AAA room only discount for FQ, but switched when the S/P & D promo came out.

For those asking, the current Visa offer comes out for everyone Jan 3.

I was asking because I have a Disney Visa but didn't get any e-mail or snail mail. I was able to find it on the internet though.

Here's a link - Disney Visa Offer

We're going to POFQ for the first time in February, can't wait! We'll actually be there during Mardi Gras. Does this Mardi Gras themed resort do anything special for Mardi Gras?

Of course! There are Mardi Gras events and activities for the kids, and the cast members have an annual pargo decoration competition between the different departments, and then there's a little pargo parade around the streets of the resort.

Thanks for the quick reply, I figured there had to be something, but searcing Mardi Gras for POFQ yields up endless results since it's Mardi Gras all the time there, heh.

I've been a busy bunny over the Christmas break, and have finally managed to complete all of the remaining room layout plans for Port Orleans for my site. This has been a very regularly requested resource, and I hope people will find it useful.

So as a New Year's present here's building one of POFQ as an example...



I won't paste them all in here (as some are quite wide) but the rest of POFQ can be found via hotlinks on the map at www.portorleans.org/frenchquarter-accommodation.php
