    We have a room booked at POFQ in April but are thinking of switching to a SSR studio. What are everyone's opinions of this :confused3 We are a family of 4 and the 2yo ds sleeps with us...this isn't going to work in a double bed (my dh and I in a double is stretching it :rotfl: ) My 12yo dd hates to sleep with dh and dh sleeps too soundly to sleep with ds. I'm thinking the queen bed at SSR might work better for us. Of course money is an issue or we'd stay somewhere with a daybed for dd. Our other option is a standard room at AKL (which I :love: :love: :love: ) but we've already stayed there and would like to maybe try somewhere new.

    Also do they do fireworks at DtD every night?

    SSR is very nice. In a studio there is a queen and a sofa pull out that is comfy. There is also a nice kitchenette that could be really handy for some meals and snacks. I don't think they do fireworks at DTD anymore :(

    Why not stay at POR and get a Gator Bayou room with a trundle bed?

    I have no idea what I'm talking about, but....

    I read somewhere that one of the PO pools is being refurbished sometime soon. That may effect your decision. I'll see if I can find the thread.... OK, here it is:http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1719982

    POFQ pool is closed, but only till mid March. But the POR option is a good idea.

    OMG there is no question, stay at SSR! The resort is so much nicer and more comfortable than POR/FQ.

    I've stayed at POR and SSR. I would choose POR. We stayed there and my DD was quite comfortable in the trundle bed. I didn't like that we didn't have maid service at SSR (but we stayed in a DVC one using a friend's points so maybe you would have maid service). I also much preferred the pool at POR. Actually, I think we took a boat or bus to POFQ, but we also had to drive to the pool at SSR because it was so far away. Also, SSR's pool was SO crowded. I did like having a kitchenette at SSR.

    Also, if you want to stay at POFQ and don't want to share a bed with your 2YO, you could get a twin areo bed. We do that for my DD whenever we go out of town because we also have a 15 YO DS and they can't sleep together. It fits in a suitcase and really doesn't take up much room. Just a thought. We got ours for less than $100, but I'm sure you could find a cheaper one.

    SSR guests paying "cash" do receive maidservice everyday, just like any other resort.
