From everything I have been reading on the boards, even the resorts that are trying the "band only" approach will give KTTW cards, if asked. Some are just not doing it automatically though.

We thought the same thing, but didn't get a king. We backed the ecv in between the tv cabinet and the table & chairs, which we moved a little. It worked fine but there wasn't a lot of room.

Arcade

this is a silly question for my child. How is the arcade at FQ in comparison to Riverside? And does the pool have fun activities for the children at FQ as well?

We didn't go to the arcade at the Riverside when we stayed there so I can't compare but my kids (6 &11) had fun the FQ arcade. Didn't spent a lot of time there but probably about and hour, twice.

They LOVED the pool games!

The pool games are great for the kids. I confess to enjoying lying on a lounger an a slothful state, sipping a cold drink and trying to answer the Trivia questions on my mind as they play

It's great because they can swim in between during any games or activities they are less interested in and then run back around to join in for what they like.

Thanks for the info on the arcade and pool games. it rained a lot but we spent an hour one day at the por arcade. we loved our stay at Riverside but have an opportunity to stay at FQ with a good discount. Just wasn't sure if we would wish we were over at riverside. We did eat at FQ and thought it was nice. The kiddo would probably prefer the slide at riverside though and I know we want to rent a sea raycers and maybe a surry bike so maybe it's silly to stay at FQ! So confused!!!!

I guess my question is: what makes FQ special and appealing for kids ? I have a boy in second grade. Thanks!
And do they have the pitch burst water balloon game at the pool- we love that silly game!

I guess I would say that you can still go over and enjoy the amenities of POR any time you want. But I absolutely loved the small size of POFQ. One bus stop instead of 4. Easy walk from any room to the arcade, pool, food court, gift shop, etc. No hike to refill the mugs. Easy walk from the bus stop after a long day at the parks.

Lots of activities, nightly movies, campfire, boat ride to DTD. And you get gold doubloons or beads in the lobby!
