We were going to stay at POFQ last year because of the boat to DTD and that's where Quest is and that's where DH and DS 12 spend a lot of time. They like DTD anyway. Just a thought. And, it's close to Typhoon Lagoon. It would have been nice for them. Too bad it closed last year when we were suppose to go

hi everyone,

we are leaving in 2 days and I'd like to fax in my request. We have reserved 2 adjoining rooms. Seems like Bldg 5 or 7 would be good -- non-smoking, close to the food and bus stop, fairly close to the pool. Does that sound right?

Does anyone have any specific likes dislikes about these buildings?

Thanks!!

Gregg

I haven't been yet but looking at the map one of those buildings would be good, the people who have been most seem to prefer number 5.

Question connecting rooms

We are arriving May 2nd and I've requested connecting rooms so my sons can have their own room (so I can have a peaceful night's sleep!). There was much confusion with the CRO about whether you can have a king connecting to two doubles. Anyone been to POFQ know for sure if you can have that configuration? It sounds like a wonderful place - we are very excited!

Anyone out there have pics of the king rooms at POFQ?

My DH and I have a king room reserved, and I was just curious what those rooms looked like.

Also, does anyone have a map of the complex at POFQ? We were just wanting to see how the buildings were laid out and where the pools were, etc?

Thank you!

From what I could tell when I was there you really can't go wrong with location if your main concern is closeness to the main building and bus stops. We were in the middle section of building 1, and it really wasn't too bad of a walk. When you get there they have long golf carts that take you & your luggage to your room (or at least they did when we were there.) My grandmother didn't have much trouble at all making the walk to the main building and bus stops. I would say it took about 5-8 minutes, and the landscaping and fountains on the way are beautiful! Have fun everyone!

Mom 7011 - I actually called FQ this morning to ask about a king room connecting to a double; the room assigner said there are not any rooms that do that.

Sorry to hear that - we are staying at POFQ in June and had requested a king room adjoining a room w/2 doubles. The Disney-specialist travel agent thought they had some - will have to let her know what you found out. Thanks.

Does anyone have any new post - renovation photos??????

Well he told you a non truth. My family just had these rooms we left yesterday.
Rooms 3134 and 3133 are adjoining one is a King non smoking room but is disabled accessible and the other is a non smoking double. 3133 is a corner room they face the parking lot but are very quiet and convientent.


hope that helps.

I am sorry I did not think to take pictures of the rooms

but the King room is in my OP the nicest it has a large Wardrobe where you can hang your clothes also has drawers for storage and a place for the TV. The dbls have a triple dresser that the TV sits on.

The furniture is Red Mahogany colored and very elegant looking.
The bedspreads are extra thick and have a New Orleans MadriGras theme with hidden Mickeys. The color scheme is excellant with everything coordinating perfectly.

Each room has hairdryers, iron and ironing board, luggage rack and coffee maker.

You will not be disappointed with this room. In fact I thought it looked more like a Delux Resort now than a mod!


Have a great stay


Mal

Thanks for the responses!!!

Are all the king rooms corner rooms? I love windows, so it would be pretty cool to have a corner room.

Thanks!!!

Please save me from 5th grade math!
Why oh why do retailers think weird shaped packaging is appealing?

I have a question. I keep reading that POFQ is really small and everything is close to everything. Then I read this review: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....hreadid=551184 which says that the bus stop was really far and one day they even drove to the bus stop. Can anybody comment on distances from the Bldgs to the food court, pool and bus stop?

Thanks!
