DD and I will share a bounty platter for breakfast to use up some of our CS credits and have never had a problem having it meat and egg free. They offer another biscuit or extra potatoes, pancake or anything reasonable that we have wanted to sub

Also I have had dinner there many times and asked for a plate of sides as a meal and they have done it with no problem.

The make your own salads are awesome and also, I have ordered the quesadillas with only cheese and no chicken so if you ask, you may be pleasantly surprised

Oh and also, they will do an adult portion of the kids mac n cheese

So sad to be leaving, but had a nice time - though many technical issues - including water that was delivered to the resort the day before we arrived and not getting it until 3 days before we leave - thus extra waters! Still trying to figure out how to personal message on here, so please be patient if you want the water.
We will have it- thank you. We are here now. We can use the name Owen. Thank you!

Hello all,

We just left the great POFQ on Sept 27th. We did not receive a bounce back offer which I dismissed as a random event we were not selected for. After reading through the boards it seems that even though I didn't receive a flyer I could have still participated.
Is there anyone who may have stayed around the same time that can verify they were being distributed?
Thank you.

We left the same day! Building 2, rm 2232, corner room river view! Loved every minute of it!!

The bounce back offer was in the "be our guest guide" that was in the room, I believe on the dresser in front of the tv or maybe the table. But either way, the offer is in the booklet. You have to book before you check out though.

Thank you for your response!

Building 4 room 4207. Second floor close to transport, garden view. Exactly what we requested.

I called Disney and they said since I didn't receive a flyer I could call the POFQ front desk (or the pretend number for the front desk) and they could issue issue one to me.

When I called the CM said that the likelihood was the deal was not happening at that time.

Disappointed at the free dining is what we long to get and I know we will be back next September.

Yep! I wish we could have booked it, but there is no way we can go again in a year.

I would call Disney reservations asap and ask for Guest Service....only guest service can help....even if the first CM says it is not possible, speak with guest service...beg if you have to. We have had this happen ....Guest Service was able see we had stayed and allowed us to book the BB. Worth a try! Good luck!!

I got through to someone somewhere and after being put on hold they gave me the same phone number and code I found on another thread for the room-only discount.
In the same thread I discovered the free dining number and code and noticed that it doesn't apply to late September dates at Moderate resorts. Which doesn't work for me.
So I'm going to have to wait for offers to become available throughout the year.
For all those interested about bounce back offers. Comb through your check-in booklet, check your notices left at your door, and talk to the front desk before checking out to fully verify that there is or is not an offer available.
Thank you to those who reached out to help.

Quite. It is very rare that there isn't a bounce-back offer running, but they don't always make sure that rooms have the paperwork refreshed so it's always worth asking at the front desk if they have one.

We are going in August 2014. I'm not booked yet and still researching resorts. Once SO gets his vacation dates set in stone (in January) I will be booking.

Renting DVC points for AKL is at the top of my list but if that falls through I will be staying at POFQ. I would book POFQ if I had a RO discount but I know if those come out it's usually around May. So it's a toss up.

Love the thread.
