    Its funny, because if you CAN find it in the US, its often Called Canadian Bacon ...

    Despite being a Canadian, I actually prefer the strips, although lean strips, most of the stuff you get is, as you say, mostly fat :(

    Yep, if you want anything similar to bacon that you get in the UK you need to get Canadian bacon.

    If you think the regular US bacon is mostly fat, you should try fatback sometime.

    Just back from my 1st trip to FQ and LOVED it.

    I'm still not sure I'm sold on Mods in general, but I would certainly stay at FQ again over ANY other Moderate resort. LOVED the small size and knowing I wouldn't have to walk another 10-15 minutes after I got back to the resort.

    We only had one bus issue and that was the DTD bus. We had to use the bus because a storm went through so boats weren't running and FQ came AFTER Riverside so it was a looooong commute.

    I found the food court to be pretty good. The rooms were surprisingly quiet considering the movies were shown right outside my door every night. I could hear them but they weren't overly loud and didn't keep my son up.

    I thought the arcade wasn't as good as the Pop one (the only other one I've ever been to) but we just use that to kill time anyway so not a big deal. The pool was colder than I would have guessed but the hot tub was great! My 5 year old was super proud of himself for becoming (in his words) "Master of the Waterslide!!"

    Certainly no complaints and I would quite happily stay here again. I was in building 4 (with connecting rooms) which was just about perfect. Ground floor, which I always avoid in values, but had no problems with here!

    I think I'm a may be a POFQ convert, lol!!

    Hi everyone! We will be spending our 5th anniversary at POFQ & it's our first stay here in all our 20 something trips.

    I have three questions.

    1) are the coffee makers in the rooms the cuisanart pod ones?

    2) are there always taxis out front say 730 am? Or do we need to call for one? We have a 8 am breakfast at GF on our anniversary.

    3). In Sept does POFQ share bus with POR?

    I'm looking forward to my first stay at POFQ with family 2 June - 7 June. I stayed at POR by myself one night after a conference a few years ago and just loved the grounds. POFQ looks like it will be great for lots of park time but also some quality family time hanging out at the POFQ pool, POR pool, taking the boat to DTD, etc. I've loved the great tips from everyone on Disboards that have helped plan all previous trips and this one.

    Checked in at POR yesterday. This resort is AMAZING! Did online check in so there was really no wait and to top it off we were upgraded from a standard room to a Courtyard/River view Royal Room. I did use Venom's fax template and mentioned on my fax that my DD8 would be turning 9 this trip. I think the CM saw the shock on my face at check. He just smiled and said " the notes on your reservation say: We want April to have a magical stay in a princess room for her birthday." We are in Parterre Place so just a short walk over the bridge to the lobby / food court / and main pool. What a great start to our vacation!

    That's wonderful and I hope the rest of your stay is just as lovely. However, you might want to repost this at the POR thread, this is POFQ. :flower3:

    While I can't say for 100% sure since I haven't stayed there yet I will say I've almost never had a problem finding silk in wdw be it at a resort or CS. But hopefully someone can tell you for sure!

    I just read on another thread that Elliott Dyson had been laid off by Disney. Elliott played at Scat Cat's club during weekends. Can anyone on this thread confirm the news? Andrew?
