POFQ vs POP

Help me with dh. With this new code, POFQ is now what we initially would have paid at POP (yes, we got it lower with AAA quickly of course). DH sees it as look how much cheaper we can now get POP with this AZZ, I see it as wow, we can now stay at a moderate! Somebody(ies) help me with convincing arguments for POFQ. I think his main concern is transportation, but help me please! I know ds (11) will love the slide, but we will do a day at Typhoon Lagoon.

I just stayed at Pop and it was a wonderful resort, but one of the things I didn't like was the sheer amount of people because of the size of the resort. It was crowded on all of the busses, in the food court, and the store inside of the resort. The transportation was good, but I believe that the bus transportation at POFQ is also good.
We went in July during one of the most crowded times of the year, but others have said that this resort has been staying full because of the newness of it.

If your husband dislikes crowds, you could use this as a reason to go to POFQ because it is a much smaller resort. Pop has 2880 rooms and POFQ has 1008 rooms available.

I also have an 11 son and he enjoyed staying at Pop, but is excited that we are going to try POFQ next year because of the slide.

" maine_jennifer" If you can take pictures and find out what kind of quick snacks they have in the food court I would be grateful. Something like sandwiches or fruits, chips. Whatever they have. Thanks for any info that you can bring back.

We are going at the end of August, so I am really getting excited. I was wondering if someone could suggest the best building for me and my husband.

I had to convince him to stay at POFQ instead of POP for the price (we used a code). I would like the building to be quiet yet convenient to the main building and bus stop so he can see the added bonus of this resort.

We have previously stayed at POP and CBR.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

Lori77, the truth is none of the buildings are truly INCONVENIENT. I suppose the ones surrounding the pool area would be considered the most convenient. The ones to one end are closer to the bus stops....the other end closer to the parking lot...we faxed over a room request to be near the pool/hot tub about 3 days prior to arriving and got a room in building 2 overlooking a lovely courtyard. Don't worry about requestion a vew....my personal feeling is it's a waste in a moderate resort, because you usually have your drapes closed for privacy....not like you have a balcony to sit out on, you know?

dawgfan, you will love POFQ, and we'll miss you at the TAGLIARCHY

Lori -
We just returned from our first trip to WDW in mid-June and stayed at the POFQ. It was a wonderful resort - I can't imagine that you and your husband won't love it. We were in Bldg 3 -rooms 3337 and 3338 - and thought that the location was perfect. It was very peaceful and quiet but was still very close to the gift shop/lobby/food court, pool, laundry, etc. Technically, we had a "parking lot view", but the building is set back a ways from the parking lot, and there is a nice grove of trees between the two, so you don't really see/hear the parking lot but are close enough to get to your car quickly when you want to. I don't know if the entire building is non-smoking, but our rooms were. We would definitely ask for the same building the next time we go. Hope this helps!

Does anyone have any tips or activities for 3 adults (who are not romatically involved together) to do while at POFQ? We're going up for our annual Food & Wine Festival weekend. Would appreciate any info.! Thanks!

The boat to downtown Dis is very relaxing and there is Pleasure Island where there are adult nightclubs. We haven't been in quite a while because we always have the kids with us these days, but I remember the comedy club being very funny.

Does anyone have a link to the POFQ map that has not been mentioned in this thread? I've seen this one http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/portorleans.jpg But I swear I've seen another out there that is just POFQ with more color and another map that shows POFQ & POR together. Anyone?
