I always make sure we drink something before we go out anywhere too as going out if you are already thirsty reduces the value of the mug and increases your cost by having to buy something as soon as you arrive at the park, or wherever you are going.


On a different topic, when do you think the activity schedule for June will be out. It's not that I'm in a hurry or anything ... just casually wondering
You mention filling them when you are at the pool...is there a place at the pool to fill them, or do you still have to go to the food court to do so?

I may have worded that ambiguously. We take sodas to the pool but we get them from the food court. It only takes about a minute, if that, to walk over and get them. I have no idea if they fill mugs at the pool bar. It's never occurred to me to ask about it. Perhaps someone else on here can comment on that.

I don't see why not, if you want to. They will provide free marshmallows to roast, but anything else is up to you.

No, they don't refill mugs at the pool bar, wish they did, but as you know, it's not a long walk back to the food court for a refill.

They think we're staying at POP, which we like, but we decided to splurge on POFQ. This trip is a celebration trip for our daughter, who graduated from nursing school last year, so we decided to surprise her with a new resort. Can't wait!

We have 3 garden view rooms reserved and I was wondering what building has our best chance at getting connecting rooms? We have grandsons that are going to be going back and forth between all rooms...we've never been to POFQ and I know its all very condensed, so walking to/from pool and buses shouldnt be a problem for any building..

Reason being, I'm gonna fax my request about 5 days out and I need something new to obsess about! Everything else is in stone..

The wait is killing me!!!!!

There's no particular advantage for any one building in terms of getting connecting rooms - see the individual floorplan maps of each building at www.portorleans.org/frenchquarter-accommodation.php for more info.

I love getting my mug each visit, and yes, between soda, hot cocoa, tea and coffee I get my money's worth!

I just switched my marathon weekend reservation to French Quarter from POP. FQ is the only mod I haven't stayed in yet, and making the call to try it rather than CBR (my first on property and what has felt most like "home" to me) was tough. Part of me is still second guessing it, but I'm trying very hard to resist that part.

One question with the mugs... If you are at FQ can you only use it at FQ? Or can you use it at Riverside as well? Thanks!

With the new RFID mugs you can use them at any Resort. POFQ is a great resort...you're going to love it.
