Really enjoyed POFQ!!

We are die hard values folks, mostly because of the price. The money you can save adds up to alot of mickey ears. (at least this is what I use to tell myself). We were required to stay at POFQ or POR for a dance event my daughter was apart of. And wow has my attitude changed! The atmosphere, pool and amenitites were completly worth it. I never knew how handy having a fridge in my room could be. Needless to say we will be staying there next time ! Loved it!!

POFQ is one of my favorite resorts. I do think the value resorts have fridges too though, at least we had one at AOA last month.

Oh oh... we are "value" people, too. Love Pop Century... but are staying at POFQ for the first time ...ON SATURDAY!!!
I just thought this would be a one-time-thing upgrading to a Moderate because of the dining plan offer ... so, are you saying I should prepare for DH not wanting to go back to a value?

Glad to hear you enjoyed POFQ! We are soooo looking forward to staying there ourselves.

OH YEA!! I never dreamed I would be saying these words because I am lil Miss Thrifty and famous for quoting "your never in the room anyway". However those few extra square feet and amenities were AWESOME! Have fun & get ready to convert lol!
