    A cockroach is typically brown, a palmetto bug is black. HTH :rolleyes:

    They can have a brown coloring as well... also a mix of black and brown. If it was anywhere the size of your pinkie finger, it was most likely a palmetto bug. We get them down here. It's not really a sign of bad conditions as they mostly stay outside and then will enter homes and the like based off of weather conditions and the like. They are something you get used to when you live in the south.

    Just be glad you didn't have one fly at you....

    We had our car as well, but always opted for the buses. It makes park hoping much easier for us.

    I think it was smaller than a pinkie, probably a baby palmetto bug. ;)

    We are staying at POFQ for the first time we we go on our 25th Wedding Anniversary Trip! We arrive on November 29. I am so excited about our choice after reading all the posts. We've camped at Fort Wilderness twice and stayed off-site on our honeymoon. I've always wanted to see WDW decorated for Christmas! :dumbo:

    We picked POFQ based on a recommendation from a friend - after being upgraded to OKW last time I just couldnt see us going back down to value. This thread has me PUMPED!

    I just hope we didn't get our lifetime equivalent of pixie dust last trip with that upgrade. :rotfl2: And Disney has a lil' more left for us.

    But how can Christmas at Disney NOT be magical?????!

    Ask the people in the five-hour line for Soarin', who thought that having a nice lie-in and going into the parks early in the afternoon was a good idea. :)

    Could one of the upcoming visitors to POFQ do me a favour and snap some photos of the Breakfast and Lunch menu signs in the food court? On our recent trip I got the current evening POFQ price lists, but did not get a chance to go back earlier in the day for the Breakfast/Lunch variants. Thanks.

    My camera isn't the best, but I can certainly try Andre! We will be eating breakfast there and probably at least one or two lunches.

    That's fine, just as long as I can read the names and prices. Even a camera phone would probably be fine.
