I think I read that there is a hot tub at POR? Is it child-free or are kids allowed?

I didn't mean that you can't stop it or to scare you. I literally meant there are no brakes, you stop it by not accelerating anymore. Instead of Stop or Go, it's Go or Stop Going.
That's interesting. It may be different according to type and brand of scooter, because ours stopped too quickly! When Patty started driving, she'd let off the throttle and it would immediately jerk to a stop! It was actually annoying until you got use to using the throttle. It also depended on the speed setting. I assume some brand scooters don't stop so fast. Ours was light and fast so that may be why.

I a do agree people cutting in front can be annoying, it's hard not to hit them sometimes.

Yes, there is a hot tub by the pool and I saw kids using it constantly. I did not see a sign forbidding children.

Question

I was listening to a WDW Today podcast, comparing the different moderate resorts - I think they've pretty much swayed me to stay at POR over POFQ.

I have a few questions. I really like the Magnolia rooms more than AB. I'll request those rooms, but what's the likelihood of getting that request? I'm going late September 2014, and it's also going to be my birthday.

Also, I was wondering for the quiet pools, are they really that quiet? I'd think that most kids would go to the main pool and not use the quiet pools.

Thanks for the help! I'm excited to try out POR and learn more about it here!

It was always full of kids when we were there in September. Our 6 year old DD wanted to go in too but it was stayed crowded, at least when we were at the main pool.

The quiet pool between Oak Manor and Parterre Place was actually pretty quiet during our stay in September. We swam there while doing laundry one night. Our 6 year old made a friend and she liked the quiet pool even though there is no slide.

Bumbershoot - congrats on your weight loss! That's awesome!

I seriously never thought about scooters not being able to stop. I hope I haven't cut someone off in the past. I will definitely be more aware in the future.

There is a small hot tub. Kids are allowed to use it, which is somewhat bad for the adults. When we were there a few weeks ago there were two different times my hubby went to get in, but couldn't because it was full of kids who were treating it more like a kiddie pool. There was a lot of splashing which took away from the relaxing aspect . However, the main pool and slide more than made up for it!
