I love POFQ... but you are right- the parade thingees are creepy.

Happy Thanksgiving!

If there are two things I know will happen in one of your trip reports, those two things are: 1.) You will eat food. 2.) Wingnut will stick out his tongue.

Every time I see POFQ pictures I just want to stay there so badly! It's so beautiful, despite the horrendously creepy heads everywhere!

Yes - it really IS all about food, isn't it? Bananas in the last post. Crumbly cranberry muffins in this post. When will it end?

That is the same entrance we had in June. It must be that whole DTD area. Boo!

The POFQ rooms are really pretty. I like! Was building 7 near the water. I love that walkway along the water. So pretty.

We are staying at POFQ for the first time in February and I can't wait!

Epcot is definately my favorite park. I happen to be a Figment fiend as well.

We ride it at least 4 times a trip.

And I will definately share some wedding pics.

Wow...two pastries while waiting for the plane. Color me impressed. Your room at POFQ looks lovely. I've always been curious about staying there, so I'm looking forward to hearing your overall opinions.

And..of course EPCOT!!!

I think I could have guessed that you would head directly to EPCOT!! I think I see a trip through Living with the Land in your future and the blueberry kid!

I completely endorse as many pastries as possible on vacation....sometimes a pancake or waffle cone get in the way but they are mostly sugar too so I suppose I'm stuck in the carbs food groups!

Glad to see Wingnut in fine form (and look, no blue tongue)!!

I'm going to come out of lurk-dom and officially follow your report...Your trips are just wonderful to read about - if fact I'm enjoying reading your 2010 report while listening to the You Tube channel that was linked in one of your updates (you know, the one with all the park music looped - it is just awesome)!

Can't wait for more... Including your wedding (even if it is months away)!

Your photos have me missing POFQ. It's so calm and pretty there (floating heads not withstanding of course).

You got some good snacking in! and now you're headed to Epcot? What a wonderful snack filled day!

Consuming multiple pastries in the morning always improves the day. I'm sure there must be scientific research proving that somewhere.

Loved the drive-by pics of Saratoga and Old Key West, and also the pics at Port Orleans - such a regal room!

ITA on the parade heads. I never like eating in Sassagoula - the giant grotesque heads always seem to be watching you. Creepy.

Wow... two food reviews... and you haven't even hit the parks yet

POFQ had a very romatic vibe to it...

NOT Epcot...

I have that you and your FIANCE have a lovely Thanksgiving...

I thought I joined your new TR but I guess not! I do remember reading the first part of it when I was still on my trip but maybe I never subbed! Oh well, I'm here now!

Haha, you guys and your pastries, I love it!

POFQ looks adorable, but some of their decorations are a little creepy! I can't believe I was at POR for over a week and never made it over to POFQ once to check it out! I really love the look of the rooms there, I love purple!

The excitement of the arrival!!!


Love this beautiful walk along the river!


When we stayed there, our room was right across from this fountain, close to the main building and food court - corner room, perfect location. We got lucky!
