Tagless and bitter about it but apparently only thing I hate is when I 'spring a wire. ;-)

I would take the bus to MGM/Disney Studios. From the bus stop, head over to the water on your right. You can hop a boat to the Boardwalk resort area from there. Hop off at the Swan/Dolphin and walk over the bridge. You can also walk from MGM, which will take about 10 minutes or so. Just follow the sidewalk.

Does anyone know if you can get a hair wrap at POFQ? If not, is there some place at DTD? Thanks!

Not sure about FQ but there is a hair wrap place in DTD. If it hasn't moved since I was there last year, then it is by the Rainforest.

Yes, they did have a hair wrap station at POFQ. I only noticed it because my DD's had their hair wrapped earlier that day at Universal.

Question Why Do You Like This Resorts vs Other Moderates???

Our family (Self, DH, kids ages 12, 14, and 17) will be making our first trip to WDW in early June. Decided to book 2 rooms at a moderate resort instead of a deluxe room elsewhere (less $$, two bathrooms!) Since we've never been, we want a great Disney experience, and my first choice was CBR because of the heavier theming. But we got POFQ instead. After reading as many posts and reviews as I can find about the moderates, I still don't know if we should stick with this resort or keep trying for CBR or maybe even POR. I think my DH and I will love the fact that POFQ is smaller, newly renovated, and (hopefully) a little quieter. But will it provide enough of the Disney atmosphere for our kids? Granted, they are older and don't need as much atmosphere as the little ones, but will POFQ seem like Disney or will it just seem like a nice hotel anywhere? Would love to know why you like this resort or whether we should keep checking back for openings at a different one. Thanks so much!

Ironically enough, when my family stayed at this resort my sisters and I were the exact ages of your 3 children & it was also our first trip. We had a BLAST! It's a very good hotel for that age group because it's not too overly 'kiddie.' 2 of us girls were also taking French classes in High School so we thought it was really cool to be able to use some of our knowledge. The boat to DTD was nice since we were old enough to be able to go alone if we wanted, and they had special things around that were a little more 'teen oriented.' They had a French Caricaturist, bands playing music in the courtyards, and the grounds are BEAUTIFUL! I have never stayed at CBR so I can't make a good comparison for you, but if your kids are a little cultural and like artsy stuff like art, music, & dance then this resort is GREAT! If your kids are more into adventurous and extreme experiences then this resort may be a little too low key, but then again, that's what the parks are for

My sister (the 14 yr old) even bought a beret at the gift shop and wore it the WHOLE tip. She thought she was pretty cute Every picture we have of her from that trip has her wearing the beret

All the things you mention sound wonderful to me. But since my 12 and 14 yr olds are boys (action & sports oriented boys!), I'm just not sure.... Now I'm wondering about Coronado Springs as a possibility. Will probably show the whole family photos of the various moderate resorts when they get home tonite and see what the consensus is. If the resort they like isn't available, we can always keep checking back to see if it opens up. Thanks for your advice!

Penguingal- We just got back from both resorts. I think your boys would like CSR better. The Dig Site pool is far superior to Doubloon Lagoon pool. It just seemed like older kids would enjoy it more. My girls had a blast at both but preferred CSR.

Yup, one bus stop. It's right outside the building with the restaurants and lounge. POFQ shares transportation with POR but POFQ is picked up first and dropped off first.
