Is ALL of building 4 a smoking building? I know it's closer to the bus stop, but I'm not going to request it if it's got the smoky odor in its rooms.

Yes, all of building 4 is smoking. But as the building was recently renovated, the rooms may not have that smoky odor. If you don't want to chance it, how about building 7? Not too far from the bus stop. Actually, nothing really is because the resort is so small.

Hope this helps!

I am going to be married at the Swan this Oct. I have decided on staying at POFQ for the first part of our stay. I will have a number of family members and a couple of friends coming as well but we will be booking less than 10 rooms so no group booking for us. If I mention when I book my room and have everyone else mention when they book there's that we are all travelling together will they put us in the same building?? I would hate for us to be scrattered all over the resort even though it is not very big. Will need to know each others reservation numbers when requesting this? Of course our luck is that we also have a few smokers in our group so they most likely will be in a different building right??

I'll give you the standard Res. agent answer:
"Room requests are taken into consideration but can not be guarenteed" Its very difficult to with people checking in and out on different days to try to keep a block of rooms open but they usually do a pretty good job.

Thumbs up Thanks!

Thank you for the wonderful photos! Now, if someone who stayed there this weekend would post and tell us all about the new renovations! I would LOVE to hear about that!

Im so excited, we are going May 5-11th (just convinced DH to add a day-Yeah!)

I have requested a King, River View, Building 2. Can I be more specific? LOL!

I too have heard this is a smaller resort and I am looking forward to that- CBR was just too big for me.

April is gonna seem like the longest month ever!!!

Any more photos?
How about inside a room?

I'm a little confused. The 2004 Passporter shows that only building 2 and the third floor of building 6 are smoking. Is it possible there was a change in this along with the renovations?

I'd like pics of the rehabbed king rooms if any of you can get them when you go!

The Passporter may be right. I'm trying to gather information, so some of mine might be outdated. I'm going to try toverify which buildings are smoking.

I'll be checking in four weeks from today!

I'm really excited about staying at this resort. Our plans are for this WDW visit to be a bit more on the relaxing side, and I think this location will be just the ticket. I love traveling by boat whenever possible (just to slow things down and relax) so I'm glad to have the opportunity to float to Downtown Disney!

My question is, where in DTD is the boat dock?

Just checking in as I ponder whether or not checking in has begun at POFQ? Wish I was there right now and I can't wait until it's my turn!
