Grover, congradulations on getting married. Have you considered signing up for magical gatherings. Then all of the reservations will be tied together and you might have better luck keeping everyone closer together. Also, the Magic gatherings wishes cruise was awsome, so if you are looking for anything extra to do you would have that option.

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??

Like the poster above, how about considering a magical gathering? If you have some smokers there is one building where there are smoking floors and non-smoking floors, so you may all end up in the same building.

Congratulations on the wedding!

Hi,
I just saw on allearsnet.com it says that they now provide coffeemakers and two packs of coffee.
I dont know about you all, but This is great news for me. I like to have a cup asap after I wake up.

Actually another dis'er emailed me the other day to tell me about Grand Gatherings- I will be looking into both!
Anything i can do to kind've keep us together-that would beat having to run around the resort and make it easier to get everyone organized to go to the parks and such!
Ohh and I hope they have a coffee maker-then no need to stop on the way to the parks!

YEEEHAAAA...don't have to bring my coffeemaker! One less thing to worry about...so now the real million dollar coffee maker question is this....what kind of filters does it take? the triangle ones or the round ones? This is very important as I don't want to have to go running out to the store after I check in cuz i got the wrong kinda filters!!!

POFQ Slide

We're staying June 11-19 at POFQ. Does anyone know how long the slide is? Is it about the same length as Coronado Springs?

I'm just surprised in this day of instant technology,that the FQ has been open for 3 days and we have not seen a single photo I think all the guests are being selfish and keeping all the secrets to themselves its like a little power trip !

Don't they know that there are people out here trying to live vicariously (my 50 cent word of the day) through them




(this was all done tongue in cheek I dont really expect people to interupt their vacations)

I also agree. Don't these people know we are waiting desperately to see some pictures?

Some people, I tell you.

Well, I am going to finish this FAQ thread soon, I promise. Classes are just a tad too crazy right now. Sorry.

Talking

Just back! I am trying to figure out how to post these pictures for you. To answer a few questions: There was coffee and a coffee maker in the room. The pool slide was fun but shorter than CSR.
The resort was beautiful but crowded. (We usually go the first week of May). We were in room 5139 which was a great location. There rooms were bright and cheery. The mattresses were very comfortable and must have been new. They were a lot more comfortable than those at CSR where we stayed at the beginning of the week. It was a very short walk everywhere except to the parking lot. When you have a 3 kids and a ton of luggage, being close to the car is important. We really enjoyed our stay. Snow White left an autographed birthday card in the room for my DD's 2nd birthday! We ate beignets for breakfast yesterday . They were delicious! The food court was a madhouse because it was packed with people. I will keep trying to figure out how to put the pictures on here. My DH will be home later if I don't figure it out before then. Check back for pictures. Any questions?

OH MY GOSH!!

I hope your husband hurries!! I cant wait- finally someone back to fill us in!

Did you stay in a king? Or doubles? How was the water taxi to DTD? What was the bus system like? Did you share it with POR? How many stops before you left for the parks? Did you do all 4 parks?

Oh! Oh! I cant wait for photos!

We did ride the boat to DTD. It was a pleasant ride. We were pretty tired because we had eaten at O'hana and watched the fireworks so we didn't catch the boat until 10:00pm. Make sure you are back a few minutes before the last trip, because there was a line. We did not use the bus system there. We just drove to the parks. (Taking a stroller on the Disney buses makes me nuts.) We did MK, BB, Busch Gardens, USO, and IOA. We stayed in a double room. We went swimming and the kids went down the slide. The pool area hasn't changed from what I could see from previous years. The courtyard outside the room was beautiful. We only stayed there for 2 nights after 3 nights at CSR and 2 nights at Royal Pacific.
