    I asked about this on facebook yesterday cuz we were trying to decide between the two and haven't stayed either before since we're DVC. The things we heard about FQ that lead us to book that last night with mousefan:

    better pool theming
    hot tub
    first bus stop for wdw transportation
    smaller
    quieter

    we'll only be there the two nights for the pre-cruise package and will go to a park that saturday...so we weren't worried about food much and there is the food court and its not a long walk to riverside.

    Re: Lou's Cruise...before or after or both

    As much as we want to go to Lou's Illuminations dessert party we decided to do our land portion after the cruise since the Flower and Garden Festival starts that week (and we have never been) and according to the crowd calendar at touringplans.com it is much less busy (4s and 6s verses solid 8s that week of President's day). We'll probably be staying at FQ.

    The plan as of today is to head down late Thursday, stay with Mom (and yes - miss the Illuminations party) til we sail on Sunday. My reason for being onsite after is for the 5K....and to hang a bit closer with my Disney Buds, and then prob go home early Sunday. I totally forgot that's F&G time! Haven't seen that since 1997~

    You should totally do POFQ after and write up a true review of pros and cons for each

    We stayed at POR & loved it but buses were crowded. We heard the same as Shelley said right from my boss, they loved POFQ. Loved being on the water to boat to down town Disney.

    That's why my DD can't go with us. But she will be in nursing so that makes it harder for time off.

    You know, we should do a Yeehaw Bob gathering that Friday night. But not too late since some of us are doing a 5k the next day.

    Just a thought!

    Oh that would be so fun. We'll have to chat about that. As we aren't renting a car we plan to use magical express.
