    Do they still serve hot food?
    We are hoping that the cutbacks don't interfere too much with the great talented folks who perform at the hotels. We would love to visit Scat Cats when we stay next September.

    Last time we were there (August) they still had hot food, but we know how quickly things can change at a Disney resort!

    Scat Cats/ Elliot is wonderful!

    I just booked our honeymoon at POFQ! This will the first time at Disney for both of us and we are so excited. It sounds like we made the perfect choice for our resort! June can't come fast enough...

    Yes, the two resorts are very close to each other (although you probably wouldn't realise it while you're inside either one). There's a lovely pathway alongside the Sassagoula River running between the two, which is a really nice walk - just 10-15 minutes walk from the door of one food court to the other.

    The River Roost lounge (right next to Boatwright's) is never locked so you can take advantage of its comfy chairs whenever you like, and the bar itself is open from 4pm if you want to get a pre-meal cocktail.

    Being a Brit I guess I'm probably not the best person to advise on US tipping ;) but I'd have thought around $5 would be quite acceptable. I'm not sure if it is considered a tipping position though - I do know that the boat pilots and bus drivers aren't meant to accept tips.

    I had planned on tipping the driver $7 if he had been willing to take the tip.
