    We may be staying at riverside this trip over FQ (well see)

    If we go my daughter has to know. Do they have cookie dough ice cream at riverside like they do at FQ?

    Also does the greater at riverside hand out coins like the greater at FQ?

    Thanks

    They hand out coins and beads at POFQ. I was just at POR (and POFQ) late August, and have stayed at POR many times in the past few years, but for the life of me I can't think of them handing out anything. But maybe I just keep missing it happening.

    The ice cream flavors change periodically, but as of August 31 or so they had what is in the attached photo: no cookie dough. They had vanilla bean, strawberry, chocolate, mint chocolate chip, rainbow sherbert. Pretty limited. POFQ had more flavors, if memory serves, but I didn't take photos there so don't know if they have 'dough. (My kids eat chocolate and vanilla.)

    They are Edy's brand, which doesn't have the best cookie dough flavor anyway. Perhaps she'd be ok with a vanilla or chocolate sundae? It is included as a dessert on the dining plan. The toppings are only hot fudge, whipped cream, cherry I think, but I could be wrong. They have large, good cookies at that food court, too.

    Pics of the ice cream at POR food court late August - only 5 flavors:

    When I stayed at Riverside we did get coins. We were sitting there and I was looking at the ground and all of the sudden a coin rolled by me and after I grabbed it I looked up and the coin guy was smiling. I have been to WDW many many times and that is still one of the moments I remember most. Don't know why but I do.
