I LOVE reading peoples' plans, so great :)

That looks like so much fun :yes:

The bay lake towers at the end of the hols for wishes from the balcony is one of the things I LOVE LOVE LOVE to do!!! and its perfect for mvmcp, short walk there and back... I'm already excited :D

I'm really going to have to look into the new restaurants at MK ! I didnt even realise they'd be open in december! what are the choices?

When does it open?

I don't believe we have official dates yet. When I asked a CM last week as we both stood looking over at the construction, he said "as you can see it's still being built so all we can tell you is that it's on schedule for late 2012 opening"

When does it open?

There isn't an official date yet John it is supposed to be towards the latter part of the year, so my guess is they will try and open it for Thanksgiving :shrug:

I might just keep an eye out when we are there in case they have a soft opening or something :fingers: I can't see it happening though :sigh:

easy tigers...... it's supposed to be open for when we go. I decided that it would probably be a french menu so didn't particularly want to eat there so we would eat there at lunch time when it's a counter service. If i do like the menu then i will change plans and we will eat there, does that make sense? LOL

Absolutely Brilliant! You have chosen so well! I couldn't think of better choices! You are going to love PORFQ...maybe our favorite (even over the featured resorts we have stayed). Boat ride to DTD is fantastic.


I want you to plan the Skip's next trip!!!

Never mind I will print yours!:yes:

i'm so glad i'm getting some good feedback on POFQ, people tend to book POR and prefer that from what i've seen and i thought i'd made a mistake. Lots of people have said this week they prefer it though, Caitlin and I like to think of it as the Princess and the Frog resort :yes: Think i'm going to ask for a first floor corner room.

No, it is a wonderful resort. It is smaller than the riverside part and quite beautiful. Ideal location really.

We stayed at POR for so many holidays in a row because once we found it, we loved it so much.

It took us a few walks round POFQ and a full up POR to persuade us to try POFQ but once we did, we haven't looked back.

POR is fantastic, wonderful. I love there being a restaurant there , piano bob and so on. HOWEVER, it's huge and if I'm not in the mansions then I like it less because of the walking around involved.

POFQ is so small that there's no walking involved, the food court is great and if you want to go to POR it's a short way away. There's a jazz singer at the POFQ bar who I enjoy more than piano bob to be honest.

I'd stay at either in a heartbeat but POFQ has become a personal favourite.
