    I'm at POFQ now. We arrived on Monday and leave tomorrow. I love it SO much! I would totally stay here again. The grounds are gorgeous, we love the food, took the boat to DTD a couple times, rooms are clean and lovely. So happy with our choice!

    Thank you for all the info in this thread! :)

    That's exactly what we requested. You can always request it again if you check in and you are at a different location. The CM that checked us in was so very helpful in getting us just what we wanted. I can't express how much I love (and miss) POFQ - I really loved everything about it and can't wait for our next trip!!! Have a great time!

    No age or height restrictions, anyone can use it.

    I booked a POFQ room only with the winter discount (changed to POR Royal Room, though), and booked my bounce-back to POFQ - 30% off. So I think it's often the availability that decides if POFQ is included in a discount or not.

    Can't wait for our trip in May. Booked a garden view room with AAA discount. Booked room only as got the park tickets separate and wasn't interested in a dining plan.

    Hi all!

    Thanks for the advice on the online check-in. I did do the check-in, but did not get the screen that Andre got? I even installed Google Chrome! I just got the options of ground floor and close to transportation, but no other options. Am I doing something wrong? I did check ground floor. Should I just cross my fingers and hope for the best? Any other ideas or suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Nothing much you can do about it, at the moment Disney's updated WDW website is partially working, and sometimes you'll get the new site, sometimes the old. Maybe clearing cookies might help, but equally it might not (and if you've already tried a different browser then I suspect not).

    I wouldn't worry about it anyway, just turn up at the desk and see if it worked - the worst that can happen is they'll check you in manually rather than just handing you a pre-prepared packet.

    When we stay here in May my son will be driving his car down. Can you please advise what the actual street address is so he can use it for his GPS? I've seen 2201 Orleans Drive and also 1251 Riverside Drive listed.

    2201 Orleans Drive is the address for POFQ and 1251 Riverside is the address for POR.

    A decent GPS ought to have the hotel name listed. I know mine (just the freebie Android one) does. The road names and numbers are a little invented. :)

    8 months till I check in for my third stay. The first was in 2002 with my parents while I was on my CP. Got a great third floor, corner room with a river view in building 6 on my cast member rate. It was awesome.

    Second stay was in 2008 again with my parents and my sister. Separate rooms but again 3rd floor in building 3. That was when it became my dad's favorite resort. He loves the water taxi to DTD.

    Our third stay we just booked with the Military Salute discount. This time it is 3 rooms since my brother and his GF are coming. And this year it's my parent's 40th wedding anniversary so I am hoping to do something special for them.

    I can almost hear the jazz and taste the beignets. And I think I spelled that wrong.

    Hi All:wave2:
    Just introducing myself. DH and I are going July 14-20 alone without the kids (ages 22, 18).

    This will be our first time at POFQ. We've stayed at the Dolphin, CBR, Beach Club, Pop Century with about 15 plus visits to WDW and this is our first time alone for the whole stay!

    I can't wait to visit again and read your thread!
