    We are scheduled to leave FQ tomorrow (10/2) and have extra bottled water for whoever responds. We will be checking out around 9 so will be checking the boards before that. We can leave it at the desk for you if needed. So sad to be leaving, but had a nice time - though many technical issues - including water that was delivered to the resort the day before we arrived and not getting it until 3 days before we leave - thus extra waters! Still trying to figure out how to personal message on here, so please be patient if you want the water.

    :rotfl: I wish they'd standardize it here (Canada). Depending on what form you're completing it's either dd/mm/Y&Y or yy/mm/dd. I don't know how many times I've filled it out wrong if I'm in a rush and not paying attention

    I have found them quite accommodating. I am not vegetarian as I eat fish but I don't eat any red meat or pork and don't like eggs ......

    DD and I will share a bounty platter for breakfast to use up some of our CS credits and have never had a problem having it meat and egg free. They offer another biscuit or extra potatoes, pancake or anything reasonable that we have wanted to sub

    Also I have had dinner there many times and asked for a plate of sides as a meal and they have done it with no problem.

    The make your own salads are awesome and also, I have ordered the quesadillas with only cheese and no chicken so if you ask, you may be pleasantly surprised :)

    Oh and also, they will do an adult portion of the kids mac n cheese :thumbsup2

I'm very excited we will get to spend our last few days in the Christmas spirit. 37 dats to go and the knee is healing slowly. Thinking if I use a scooter on resort property and to buzz back n forth to riverside maybe I won't need it or he actual parks .. Praying hard and not missing one day of pt....

    Hello all,

    We just left the great POFQ on Sept 27th. We did not receive a bounce back offer which I dismissed as a random event we were not selected for. After reading through the boards it seems that even though I didn't receive a flyer I could have still participated.
    Is there anyone who may have stayed around the same time that can verify they were being distributed?
    Thank you.

    We left the same day! Building 2, rm 2232, corner room river view! Loved every minute of it!!

    The bounce back offer was in the "be our guest guide" that was in the room, I believe on the dresser in front of the tv or maybe the table. But either way, the offer is in the booklet. You have to book before you check out though.

    Thank you for your response!

    Building 4 room 4207. Second floor close to transport, garden view. Exactly what we requested.

    I called Disney and they said since I didn't receive a flyer I could call the POFQ front desk (or the pretend number for the front desk) and they could issue issue one to me.

    When I called the CM said that the likelihood was the deal was not happening at that time.

    Disappointed at the free dining is what we long to get and I know we will be back next September.

    Yep! I wish we could have booked it, but there is no way we can go again in a year. :(
