    Wow, how long are you going to be there for, it's only $2 per load! :) They do take debit cards as well as credit cards by the way, but not KttW cards or Magic Bands. The Riverside laundries all still take cash.


    I would suggest allowing at least an hour to be safe. So maybe get to the bus stop for around 7am, and then if you're at the MK a bit early you get extra time on an empty Main Street USA to take photos.


    It's really down to personal choice, there is no "one size fits all" answer. Upper floors can be a bit quieter (as there's no one above you), and corner rooms can be lighter and feel more airy due to the extra window. Close to transport is nice, but it's a very small resort so not such a big issue unless you have mobility issues or strollers to worry about.


    No one recently that I recall, but if the resort is not at full capacity then it should be easier for them to allocate guests to rooms with fridges.

    I always request 3rd floor so I don't have noise from someone in a room above me. That's not included in your list though. I always have DRC make a note of this request when I make my ressie.

    We decided to go for it!! Spoke to a lovely lady on the phone who changed us from 4 nights at CSR to 5 nights at POFQ. We added tickets to our package (which we were going to buy separately, anyway) so qualified for the free dining plan as well.

    Really excited!!

    There are lots of joggers out early in the morning. It's harder later in the evening because of the horse carriages. The path is only around a mile round trip between PO-FQ and POR and there are no sidewalks on the nearby roads so if you are a distance runner it can be frustrating.

    I just realized I have to be up in 6 and a half hours. Maybe I should go to sleep?

    Did any of our recent POFQ visitors manage to get those food court menu photo that we talked about a couple of weeks ago? I don't think there are any news items, but some prices have changed I think...

    I meant to do that several times when I was in the food court this week and every time we were in there we were in a hurry or I was trying to help my daughter (and husband) get what they needed!(love free dining!!). Just wanted to comment on the food court. We loved it!! It was never to busy and the meals were huge!! It is actually funny how big the shrimp and chicken po boy sandwich is!!! Loved the beneigts and ice cream. We went over to riverside and swam and ate at there food court and loved the make your own pasta!!

    Thanks, that'd be great.

    Amanda999 (whose name isn't Amanda; I get really confused by different screen names!) was a real star over at Riverside last month, she emailed me pics all the way to the UK direct from her phone as she took them, and we had a little email chat while she was still at the food court! Neat, gotta love all this new technology!
