    Having stayed at both POFQ and POR, the only one we would return to is French Quarter. It's very pretty and much quieter.
    Also it's much easier to get on the bus there as it's often full before it reaches POR. (Unless they've split the bus service since we last went.)

    Next time though, you may want to give it a try. We find it to be terribly convenient. And, if you're park hopping, you can get a receipt for your key deposit at one park, take it to the next park, and all you have to pay is the key deposit. The actual locker fee "transfers" if you will from one park to the next.

    Very useful info!! Thanks Catrancher!!

    Thanks Di, I hadn't really thought about it but the bus service was pretty full from POR, but I did love that swimmin hole

    Odd. We've never had an issue with the bus service at Riverside. We always use the main bus stop out in front of the lobby and have never seen a bus so full that we couldn't get on it. Full, yes. So full we couldn't get on, no. In fact, I don't remember a time when it was so full we had to stand.

    Tom (... get me to the park on time!)

    We've been to both and like both. POFQ is a very compact resort, easy to maneuver around and everything is close by. POR is much larger. Both are really beautiful resorts and it is fun to walk around them exploring! Both have comparable services, although POFQ no longer has a sit-down restaurant (they did many moons ago and it was terrific!).

    We haven't been there in a while, but bus service was shared between the two resorts. POFQ has only one bus stop. POR has 4 or 5 I believe, counting the lobby stop. During busy seasons, the bus can get pretty crowded from our experience. We always felt POFQ had the edge there because it is the first stop, but the route may have changed.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either resort!

    I prefer the look, feel and theming of Riverside but much prefer the Magnolia Bend (mansion buildings) to Aligator bayou. It is completely personal choice and I don't think you could go wrong with either! We don;t use the buses so that isn't a consideration for us.
