    What do you love about POFQ?

    I think you made a good decision choosing 2 rooms at POFQ - you want everyone to be comfortable! Having your own personal space is important. I have stayed at POR with my mom- not POFQ- however I am booking POFQ for an upcoming trip. Many report that the beds are super comfortable. The...

    Magical express from AKL to MCO but not flying

    I have totally done this - took ME from AKL to the airport to pick up a rental car on my departure day. I called ME - it was super easy - no issues whatsoever.

    Grocery delivery vs Uber to Publix

    I would go with Prime Now or Instacart - no jacked up prices.

    Are the value resorts worth it?

    In my mind there is not that much difference between values and moderates - but I often travel alone so room size isn't an issue for me. For some families an upgrade to a moderate is needed for more room. You could always start with a value resort and if you find it way too cramped or lacking...

    STRESSED: AoA, AKL or POR???

    AKL definitely no question!! It is a Disney resort in all of it's creativity, beauty and innovation. The food would be fine for kids - though there are ethnic options, there are also plenty of options that everyone will enjoy. All buffets have a kids area as well with things like chicken...

    Priceline Express Deals

    I also think this is Ft. Wilderness Cabins! Better than the AP rate too.

    Is DVC worth buying into when you live close to Disney World?

    I am moving to Orlando next month and still plan on buying into DVC. I want to have points to use for runDisney races and special events like the Food and Wine festival. I lived in Orlando back in 2012 and still had three onsite stays that year - just because I love it.

    Best hotwire deal for a Disney resort

    I have booked lots of hotels through hotwire - several in Orlando, one in France and once a 4 star hotel on the Danube river in Budapest Hungary (for $49). All without issues. I would book again through hotwire and am so glad Disney resorts are available. However that said, it may not be for...

    What is the Cast member discount for resorts? Specifically Art of Animation.

    I think the discounts for cast members are based on season and availability just like any other offers, so the resorts and the discounts are always changing- for example I remember Pop being 50% off sometimes as well as Aulani as much as 45% discounted. I don't remember having discounts more...

    Wow!!! I am amazed at what is out there - so glad Disney is doing this now. I stayed off site last trip because I was really "priced out" of it but now - maybe not!

    What's the best hotwire hotrate deal anyone has gotten on a Disney Resort? Maybe I'm a little late to the party, but I just realized Disney resorts are now on hotwire! I have often used hotwire before but not for Disney resorts. Curious!!

    Once you go Deluxe, do you ever go Moderate or Value?

    I enjoy all of them and choose whatever I am in the mood for - however if I want to spend more time at the resort just chilling, I am more likely to book deluxe. In my mind there is not that much difference between value and moderate - but I often travel solo so room size isn't any issue there.
