How many King rooms?

Anyone have any idea how many King bed rooms are at PO-FQ? We made very early reservations (room only) to get a king and a regular room in January (marathon weekend). When our TA switched it to a package last week she messed up and got us 2 standard rooms and now all the King rooms are gone. She is going to call every day but I seem to remember from our last trip that there are few King rooms at all. My Dad/Stepmom are coming with us a few nights and they only want a King. If we can't get it we may have to do a split stay which I'd rather not do....though we considered switching to a Deluxe if there is a good sale BUT we really LOVE PO-FQ.

Ugggh!

About the TV's at POFQ... Do they have hook-ups so that you can plug your little dvd player into them?

Hi there! Really enjoyed all the work everyone has put into this thread. I requested a non-smoking room in bldg. 4 but I see that bldg. 4 is listed as a smoking bldg. Does this bldg. have rooms that are non-smoking or are they all designated as smoking? I don't have a problem sharing the building with smokers as long as I am in a room that is designated as non-smoking.

I was in a non-smoking room in building 4 in January. I never saw smoke or smelled smoke.
Great location!!! Close to the bus stop and close to the food court.

What's the BEST standard room/building to request? We're going in Sept-Oct 2007, me, DH, DD(4) and DD(2), MIL and possibly FIL or SIL. We want to be close to food court and pool and busses, but in a relatively quiet area. What should I request when I book?

They had front access that I used for my camera so I'm sure you could do it.

I'm here right now, looking at our TV and there is quite a bit of ports on the back for plugging various things in, so I'm gonna say yes. If you'd like, I can take a picture of it and post it for you (?) There's also ports on the front for what looks like maybe a video recorder hook up.

Just chiming in. We are staying at POFQ for 5 nights in December at Christmas. This will be our first stay here and it sounds like we will love it.

Construction / Remodeling

I read in a thread somewhere today that there is construction/remodeling going on rifght now @ POFQ...building 4. Of course that's the building I have requested when we get there this coming Sunday. ( I might not get my request, though ). Does anyone know exactly what kind of work is being done?

Oh that would be awesome! Thanks! That way I can show it to DH and he'll know exactly how crazy I am, er I mean, exactly what to bring! lol. (He will think I'm nuts when I show him a picture of the TV ports in the rooms! lol)
But yes! PLEASE!

We used our portable DVD player with the TV when we went in Sept last year for Granddaughters movies. It worked fine.
