    Just finalized our booking for October! We can't wait! First time staying at POFQ. I hope they end up offering free dinning this year. I heard they did last year for the time we are going.

    I am afraid to fly so we are taking the Auto Train out of VA. Should be an experience. We are taking our 7 yr old and 4 yr old. I am due in 50 days with Baby #3 and she will be staying with my parents when we go.:)

    Thanks for this awesome thread! My family and I will be staying at POFQ for the first time in May. I go to school in New Orleans, so it should be fun spotting all of the authentic touches :)

    There is a thread about the Autotrain under on the Transportation Board. Check it out, there is lots of helpful information.

    Do you find that when you make a request for a certain building, that they give you it?

    We asked for specific building and connecting rooms with our daughter and her family and had no problem whereas my son, who came later in the week, asked for same building and a room close to us (not connecting or even adjoining) - he did get the same building but on the other side. He came over MLK weekend and we had arrived the week prior. We did note many rooms close to us that were empty.

    I'm so excited!! :cool1: I just called and switched from Pop to POFQ! This will be our first time at the resort. We enjoyed Pop last time, but I'm looking forward to trying something new! I've stayed at CBR before, so I will be anxious to experience a smaller moderate. POFQ regulars seem to LOVE this resort, so I am praying we will fall in love too!
