July 2013 will be our first time so those overlays do the trick! Be nice to Stitch if he ends up in the POFQ pool you never know what could happen
Andre, you have a nice map overlay above. Any chance that could find it's way to page 1 along with the map of room types/categories?? That would sure be helpful for newcomers and for those who only stop by occasionally. Thanks!
I just posted that awesome pic of POFQ in the rain by expressmonorail as my wallpaper on my iPad. I'm thinking GV upper floor, outside corner, buildings 6 or 4 preferably? I was going to do River View, but not sure it's worth the extra money since you don't have private balconies.
Due to the small size of the resort, I never think it's worth the extra money to upgrade the room, but that's just my opinion
You're quite welcome Oh really? DH and I was wondering about that because we aren't planning on having kids until he's done with med school (he starts next year). So I'll also end up being an older mom.
Glad to know it works out well!
You and your friends will have a blast! Staying at POFQ?
Also, it's surprising that some rooms you would THINK are garden are actually standard. So doing some research into that may help with costs as well ^_^
those are great diagrams.. looks like some one had some extra time on thier hands
Yes, we are staying at POFQ. We just booked a standard room this time. Normally we do a garden, but since it is just us, we don't really care.
I do know I don't want to be near the pool.
I first gave birth at 38, and I still wouldn't have it any other way.... 13 years later!
Poussière de fée!
If you want to be on the river, then you will be in the rooms farthest from the bus stop and food court. But the walk was very short in our opinion. As for the pool, I liked being in Building 6 better than 5 since 5 is right there at the pool but Building 6 gives you a bit of space away from it. (I would never pay for a pool-view room -- you'd have to pay ME to take one.) For us it was a quick walk through Building 5 to get to the pool. Not a problem at all.
Glad to know I am not alone. Had dd at 36 and ds at 40.
Adults are allowed on the pool slide? I had a terrible experience on a slide 20+ years ago at a water park in VA and have not been on one since -- too scared. I'd really like to try a little slide just for the fun of it, but I thought adults weren't allowed. I'm planning on doing a roller coaster for the first time in 20+ years on this trip. Might as well do a slide too!
Absolutely, adults are allowed on the slide!
And the POFQ slide is pretty tame compared to the POR one.
It's better than no slide though ^_^
Done. I've also update a few other items in the first-post FAQ which needed tweaking for 2013 too. If someone could give it a quick read-through and let me know if there are any silly mistakes in there? Thanks.
So I showed DH videos and pics of both FQ and Riverside. (And the RGRs) He seemed like he was with me in leaning toward FQ until seeing the RGRs vs the FQ rooms. I think the pool and slide at FQ would be better for our DS6 and DD2 than POR and I like the idea of the smaller resort and 1 bus stop. Thoughts?
Also, how busy does the FQ pool get in the summer (early August)?
Yup! DH (32) and myself (30) enjoyed the slide in January. And if anyone is wondering, there is NOT a weight limit on it. DH and I are not precisely small, and I about died laughing when he asked the lifeguard, "So, how fat can you be and ride the slide?" I thought the lifeguard was going to choke trying not to laugh. "As large as you want sir, as large as you want."
