Oh good grief, I'm excited but I'm not THAT excited. Please excuse the forum faux pas, I tried to delete the extra messages but I couldn't. Don't know what I did wrong but I'll try not to let it happen again. Yup, that's my story and I'm stickin to it.

currently planning

I am currently trying to decide between the moderates for a trip at the end of May. I have stayed at POFQ before (although it was 10 years ago,) but the new room renovations look beautiful! For those of you who have just returned frrom staying there after the renovations, I'm wondering if any of the following have changed...
1. Does POFQ still share bus transportation to the parks with POR?
2. Someone had mentioned on here that the boats from POFQ no longer go straight to DTD, they pick up at POR first. Any truth to this?

Taking boyfriend (hoping to be fiance' when we return ) for his frist trip and I want everything to be as PERFECT as possible for what we can afford :D

A few questions

My DH and I decided to split our stay between POFQ and YC this coming May, and I have a few questions about POFQ-
1) We booked a king bed, are all king bed rooms water view rooms?
2) Does POFQ and POR share busses?

Thanks-can't wait!

Before the renovation, POFQ and POR shared buses. It'll probably be the same after the renovation.

The DTD boat will most likely be again stopping at both POR and POFQ. This is what they did before.

Honestly, when i called to switch from POP to a moderate because of the great Visa Rate, I wasn't very happy about POFQ being the only mod available.....all of us are not the laid back type..but after reading all the posts on FQ and it just having gone through rehab we are REALLY REALLY excited about staying there in a few weeks!! I know my step-mom and sis will love it..just hope the kids (16, 15, 12, 8) will enjoy it!! Heck their going to WDW..what's not to enjoy!!!

Although we have been to DW a number of times, this will be our first stay on property.

I was a little hesitant to stay at POFQ, but thanks to all the posts I can't wait to get there and see the new renovations!

Hopefully the pics will be posted and questions will all be answered real soon.

We go in 2 weeks!

Looking at the photos, it appears that there is a hairdryer by the sinks. Didn't used to be. Yea! I also like the privacy curtain. That's a nice touch.

Procedure for room requests?

We are checking in on April 20th! Can't wait. So what is the procedure for making building requests. We booked a standard view (although thinking about changing it to a water view). I'm thinking Building 1 or 7. How do I make the request?

I got the following info off allearsnet.com

No requests should be sent until 4 days prior to actual check-in

Be sure you include the pertinent information in the fax. Your name, home address and telephone, your reservation number(s), the dates of your arrival and departure, and the requests you wish to make. It would be in your best interests to list your requests in the order of importance to you. And remember that the more requests you are making the greater the chances you will not receive all of them.


You should always give a reason why you are requesting something. This is to help the room assigner figure out what your intent is if he can't fulfill your specific request. Did you request a second floor room because of the view or is the first floor too noisy for you? Is the building you wanted because it is close to the bus/food/pool/etc or because it is a nonsmoking building? If the room assigner knows the reason, he can put you in another room that will better meet your needs if what you wanted isn't available. The more narrow and specific your request is such as with a specific room number, the harder it will be to fulfill.

Remember that it is always best to use the friendliest tone possible in your fax. "May we", "could we possibly", or "if it's possible"


the fax number to POFQ is Fax - 407-934-5353

NOW, just a note that the website did also say that a phone call to CRO is just as good a way to make a request....last year I faxed and got exactly what I wanted at the ASsports...this year I gave them my requests when I paid in full..the guy was real nice..told him I wanted somethign close to the pool..he said he would put me down for waterview room and its a possibility that I might get it w/o paying the extra a night. But I will also fax my request in 4 days prior. Hope this helps

I seem to recall reading somewhere that FAX's would be ignored. This was a fairly recent development (end of 2003??). Anyone else hear the same?
