    Could you also check to see if there are TVs in the bar, as someone else asked a while ago? I while I'm pretty sure there are, I couldn't be certain. Thanks!

    Hope your head is feeling better now, did they resolve the issue for you and apologise properly?

    I think that is with every resort heading back from the parks. We have experienced that at both ASmo and CBR. What building are you in, and how is the walk from the room to the bus stop? Is POFQ picked up first, then PORS?
    We will be here in just 49 days!:cool1:

    If I were you, I would make a point of letting the MANAGER know what happened in the room. I am as concedrned about the attitude of the cast member as much as the falling object. She needs to know which of her staff is not responding in the Disney way. I understand the manager there is a lovely lady. I am sure she will want to take care of this. Good luck and let us know the results.

    It's there and it is exactly the one you described!

    I know for sure there is at least one TV in the bar. DH says there were two, I can check if you like.



    We are in Bldg 3, short walk to bus, boat, pool, lounge/food court. I actually underestimated just how small this resort is. I don't think it is possible to have a long walk to anything!

    The bus situation as far as POFQ/POR seems to vary each day and with each park. Some days we are picked up/dropped off first, others we are second. We've even had separate buses for POFQ and POR!

    I'm subscribing...we will be there over New Years and I haven't spent more than a night or two there in a few years (due to DVC) so I'm curious.

    We are December 27th to January 2nd. We are going to spend New Years Eve at Epcot.

    I couldn't believe how lucky we were to get all those nights together. I only booked last week after trying for 2 days straight. I was willing to switch mid vacation, sleep on the pool chairs, I didn't care :rotfl: . When DH says lets go to Disney, he doesn't have to tell me twice lol.

    We had been butting heads for a while...he wanted to use points (I said no way too high) I wanted to use cash...and well he's CHEAP but he finally "blinked" first.

    Kathy... You just made my night! Chances are they will play Christmas music that was recorded by 2 friends of mine on that thing in the mornings and I can sit there with my coffee and book and read until I want to go into the parks or my DH and DDs wake up!

    Does POFQ have microwaves in the food court that you can use? I only ask because if so I want to pack cups and tea bags,sugar etc. for my morning cup of tea.

    Im just interested in the space of the room comapred to a non adjoining room. Where the door is with reference to the window and beds. are the headboards on the door wall or not. If we have a roll away, is there room with the door still able to open?

    The internal door opens inwards (in both rooms - it's actually two doors, one behind the other, for security so each room can lock their own side). The doorway is located next to the beds - just where a rollaway would go, so I guess it'd be a bit tricky to open/close the door with the bed made up.

    You'd put the bed in the space where it says Trundle Bed in the plan below (the next-door room would be a mirror image of this one):
