After a lot of research, my husband and I decided to stay at POFQ. It was a surprise Disney trip for our children (their first time). Our children are ages 9, 7 & 2. The staff did a very good job keeping things hush hush while we checked in. Upon checking in, we were told our room was ready for us (at 8am!). We stayed on the third floor in building #8. We would request #8 again, it was next to the pool, river, garden where they did the nightly campfire and also close to the food court. The resort was very quiet and peaceful.
The swimming pool was awesome, our children really enjoyed it. We had quite a scary incident with our 7 year old son, who required a lifeguard jumping in to his rescue. There were always 5 lifeguards at the pool and they took it very seriously. This lifeguard saved my child's life and I'm forever grateful to her.
The food at the food court was pretty good, however I wasn't a huge fan of their breakfast. Their Philly cheese steak sandwiches were very good!
Overall, we had an amazing time and we'll definitely be staying at POFQ again!
