    We just switched our reservation from POR to POFQ. Arriving May 19th and staying till June 2nd. I'm excited because it'll be our first time at POFQ. We stayed at POR last fall and yes the place was huge!! Walking to the food court was a hike but you get to enjoy the scenic routes to get there.
    As for as POFQ, my DW is uber excited. The kids can't wait and I'm looking forward to the whole experience once again.

    41 days and counting.

    My DD (14) and I just got back from POFQ. We both LOVED the resort, it is our new favorite resort and as you can see in my signature I've stayed lots of places. She loved the pool, the compact resort, easy walk to the food court, easy walk to the bus, the theming, the grounds... everything. The slide is a little lame for a thrill seeker, but the pool was fine.

    Does anyone have photos of a king bed room at POFQ? Hubby and I will be booking one for a mid-May stay.

    Just got back from a 4-night stay at Sports yesterday and I'm already ready to be back. After that, no more Disney trips until a short cruise in January. Not sure how to survive those intervening months :worried:

    There's a link in the FAQs post at the start of this thread to http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3080566 where you can add your dates and see who else is going the same time. Please read the first post in that thread first to make sure you use the correct format to make updating the list easy.

    Well, I never get it right when I try to add on to those posts where everyone can add on, I do it wrong! Anyway, it looks like we'll have a lot of DIS company on our trip! We'll be there 10/30-11/3! Really can't wait for the Eat to the Beat concert dates to be released!

    What are the beds like here are they comfy? And I hate to ask but does this resort ever have any bug problems that's why I switched resorts?
    Thanks

    The beds were all replaced with new queen beds two years ago when the resort was refurbished. They are the same as the Riverside ones, which I found very comfortable. The pillows seemed a little hard though, but I gather you can request softer ones if you want.

    As far as bed bugs go, they are brought in by guests arriving at a hotel, and are nothing to do with any particular hotel or chain. Although it does obviously help that you are dealing with a company like Disney who will deal very quickly with any infestations that are reported - but thankfully reports do seem to be very infrequent.

    To be really honest, I doubt there is any hotel in Orlando that has not had bed bugs at one time or another - and even if you did find a hotel that has never had them, if the guest just before you happens to brings some in from elsewhere, they will be in your room. In short, your only complete guarantee to avoid them would be to buy your own hotel room and never let another soul into it.

    Thanks but I wasn't referring to bedbugs I'm not worried about that I know how to check for that
    I was worried about roaches that one poster seemed to have a problem with at riverside that seemed to be infested in quite a few rooms?
