    What's the best way to request two connecting rooms, ground floor in buildings 2 or 5?

    Should i limit my request and not specify a building?

    We booked garden view.

    Thanks your all your help! This thread is amazing!:flower3:

    Have fun in Gettysburg. We avoid it! (I do want to go over some time and try Cafe Saint-Amand, but definitely not during the tourist season and not on a weekend!)

    You should be real close now! Have a great time! If you would, check out the in-room coffee for me and, if you are going to use it, could you take a picture of the coffee pod before you put it in the maker? Thanks!

    I had read that the Melita coffee pods are compatible. They sell them in my local supermarket $5.59 for 16 pods.

    Put your requests in order of preference if you have more than one.

    I have a photo, but need to upload it somewhere to put in a post.

    We did not get our request of building 5, but are on the top of 1 with a river view. It's beautiful & quiet. My parents like this better, so we'll happily hike to the pool!

    Bet the view is nice, but wouldn't you be more comfortable in a room rather than on top of the building?

    :lmao

    Does anyone have any information about the construction set to begin in May? What will be affected? When will the construction begin?
    Thanks!

    I'd guess at 5-6 weeks or so, but until there's a confirmed start date that's a rather meaningless timescale I'm afraid. As soon as I'm able to quote the start date, I will.

    We just returned after staying 3/6-12 and my husband said it was OK. It was the Cuisinart pods that would brew two cups at a time so it was brewed but I still used my Via. I'm kinda particular. I don't recall half and half in the food court but we brought "mini moos" from home which didn't require refrigeration and he liked those. In the food court at the time we were there it was still Nescafe. ICK!

    Hope that helps.

    Can someone explain to me why POFQ got rid of the half and half dispenser? :confused3 Our last trip to POFQ was in Aug 2011 and they were using those little creamers in a ice bowl. I was hoping that they would have changed back by now. We stayed at the WL last Aug, 2012 and they had the half and half dispensers, so much easier:thumbsup2
    Does anyone know if the Riverside has the dispenser?
