Are we still trying to figure out the "big project?"
The answers are probably right in front of us

We're tentatively going Feb 24-Mar 2. I do have a question about EMH. There seems to be some discrepancies between Dis and the official Disney site when it comes to EMH's during our stay. Is this normal? What source should I use to plan around?

Is there a way, ANY WAY to just skip November, December and January altogether? Those new pictures of the Fantasyland expansion is driving me bonkers, I'm SO excited!

I already made a list of purchases from that amazing gift shop and that includes:

- EVERYTHING IN SITE



Sorry, I might be a tad out of control right now!

We moved from AoA to POR to take advantage of the S/P/D discount for our trip.

Traded a Little Mermaid room for a Royal one!

So happy to be joining this thread! We will be at POFQ Feb. 2-8! It is my 3rd trip to Disney but first stay at POFQ. I have a 3yr old princess who shares my excitement, the rest of my family just thinks I'm nuts. I'm glad to find other people here on the boards who can relate!

THIS is why I just booked for February!! So add me to the list. We are DVC'ers who are out of points (trying not to borrow), so with the new special that was added and all those photos floating around everywhere, we couldn't stand it. So we just booked ASMo 2/25 - 3/2!! I know absolutely nothing about this resort. Can anyone fill me in?

Also, can anyone fill me in on the weather for February? I did ZERO research, just booked. HAHAHA. I'm so giddy.

Well folks I got the free dining/ room discount PIN code and it's good for my February dates. I was super excited to take 1200 off our trip total! But (with me there is always a but) then I started the scheming and the planning to change resorts. Afterall we have AP's and the 35 percent off at AKL or BWI is looking really appealing!

Alas, it still would end up costing more than 7 nights with free ddp at POR and the bottom line for this trip is COST. We went in May and August this year (darn AP's) and there is ZERO reason to spend more money on this trip.
So here is my solemn vow that I will stick with POR. I LOVED Port Orleans when we stayed in 2010 and have been wanting to go back. I might consider POFQ instead since I have never stayed there but I am NOT upgrading to a deluxe. I promise.

So there you have it. I've put it out there and now I have to stick to my word. Pin code for free dining can be booked until late February but I really should call and put down my deposit so that it doesn't fill up.
Anyone have any opinions on POR vs. POFQ? We love the pool at POR but I doubt we'll use it in February and POFQ looks like it might be a little quieter.

I'd go with POFQ. The pool is lovely (we were there end Feb / early March this year and had quite a few days warm enough to use the pool - fingers crossed for a repeat of that weather in 2013) which is a great perk in itself, but overall I think the resort just has more charm. Its smaller too, which is handy. The buses start and stop first at FQ if they are shared, and it didn't take us more than 20 minutes to get to any of the parks. I loved it. But then POR was just too big for me, I prefer a cosier resort.

Wherever you end up going I'm sure you will have a wonderful time - enjoy
