    Thanks for the live report! It helps with the wait!

    I'm a huge "once upon a time" fan myself. What did you think about the ending?

    We only ever used the bus once last year and once the year before I think, coming back from POFQ but we knew both times that we would be as we were going to be there really late. You'll have a great time there! :goodvibes

    Just wanted to pop in and let everyone know that we had another amazing stay at POFQ!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it here! We had booked a standard room, but just like last year ended up with a beautiful 3rd floor river view, this time in building 2. last year we got bldg 6. if given a choice i would choose 6 over 2 simply b/c with the river view in bldg 2 you get a lot of boat noise...boy they love honking those horns! ill try and post some pics later.

    After 3 years of staying at the All Star resorts, we visited POFQ for an afternoon last year and fell in love with it. We're booked there for our trip this September and can't wait!! I think we'll request Building 4 - I know it's a small resort but that building seems to be closest to food court, buses, etc. Does that sound ok? Any recommendations on what floor is best? Is there a lot of noise going by if you stay on the ground floor? Thanks for your help! We're newbies to POFQ and I love reading the posts here to pass the time until we can finally be there ourselves!

    We requested bldg 4 but ended up in bldg 6 ground floor, just across the rue from bldg 4. It was great. The whole resort seemed quiet and peaceful. We were teir the 1st week of May.

    What is the earliest your room has been ready? We are arriving on a Sunday morning and planning to head straight to the park after checkin. But, just curious, if there is any chance our room might be ready - thanks.

    Sorry that I haven't done any updates lately. Got busy. We got home yesterday evening. I will try to post some pics later. I have a hair appt. and dd has an orthodontist appt. later, so it may be a while. We had a great stay. Only one issue with the buses. I'll give details later. Gotta go!:wave2:

    We got there around 11 am Thanksgiving week, and our room was ready. I was shocked! I think it really just depends on how full they were the night before, and how early others checked out. I have to admit that we have had awesome luck with our room being ready, at a variety of resorts. (now I probably jinxed myself, but I hope you get lucky like we did!)

    For me it's the fact that it doesn't matter which building you get. They each are awesome in their own way. ;) Making a request is just too difficult for me so I am leaving it up to the pixie dust! :wizard:

    So glad you had a great time! POFQ is my favorite resort! I will be there in September and I was just able to get free dining a few days ago, in a River View room.. I know no matter where your room is, you are pretty close to anything there, but are bldgs 2 & 6 the only river view buildings? I'm used to just a standard parking lot view so I'm trying to see on the map where I could possibly land lol.
