    I owe you a huge thank you, Andre. Your website is spectacular. I've stayed at Riverside many times now, and now at FQ (always wanted to stay at FQ, but always get much better discounts at Riverside). Anyway, I stumbled upon your site a couple of years ago, switched from Poly to PO and have never looked back. The kids and I and DH all love it here, and part of it was my ability to plan via all the info on your site. So, THANKS!

    And in case this helps anyone: I just now booked free dining Bounceback. Dates are as described before: August 20, 2014 to September 29, 2014. 2 day base ticket minimum. FQ garden view, POR garden and POR preferred were all available for late August.

    Room only Bounceback is still the old 2013 dates. She was surprised: said she thought they were out for 2014, and I should call before I check out. Will update if any news.

    Building 1 would be a good location. It is away from the pool, next building out from building2. Building 2 is closest to the boat dock but you might end up hearing noise from the pool. If that doesn't bother you, then 2 is closer to the food court.

    Here now. It is lovely! Lobby really looks great and the updated rooms are great. We got building 4 ( we asked for something close to bus stops) but didn't get a corner room ( our other request). So far though we're happy with the room anyway. They said it is a n upgrade but seems like we are looking at a maintenance building so I can't see how that is possible...

    Still -- it has been great and we're so glad to be here!

    Oh and there was a fridge in the room but it didn't seem cold so not sure if it is working...

    Such a great place to be!!

    Did you ask to have the two rooms together? We have two rooms and I linked the reservations and asked for adjoining and we will not be happy if we are separated like you are.

    Post for no reason other than to see my countdown clock. I have already begun telling the wife of the great bounceback offer and how free dining may not be available again.....:rolleyes1

    I agree, the full refund is the biggie for her, as I say we can always cancel (which we won't)

    I am here right now - literally sitting on my bed in building 4. Checked in two rooms yesterday, this one and another in separate bldg and neither had a frig.

    She might not have known- I have talked with a reservation cm who didn't even know about the issue at all. Or maybe they know they will be 100% by your check in date - they said they were half done previously (not sure what day they said that). Good luck.

    They don't always have bouncebacks. But if they do, it's either free dining or a room discount. Sometimes you can choose one or the other; when I was there, the offer was only a room discount.

    Yes, you have to book a specific reservatoin for a specific date. It's not an open booking.
