It sounds weird but with regards to walking, it's the last half mile that kills me! So proximity to a bus stop is important to me!
Then you'd want to request Acadian or Magnolia for your building. They don't always honor those requests but it doesn't hurt to ask. However, keep in mind that the order of bus stops is South Depot, West Depot, North Depot and East Depot. South is the main depot and quite frequently, the bus will fill up there and everyone at the other stops who can get on, end up having to stand. My DW and I always stay in Alligator Bayou and always request either building 14 or 18. Don't always get it but we request it anyway.
However, it's really not a bad walk even from the back of the resort to the South depot out front. We've done it many times. But it's not our preferred method.

We have always stayed in the Alligator Bayou section, building 14 to be exact. It is very close to the main building. I personally drive so I don't know what the bus transportation is like.
it sounds like a wonderful resort :)
and I think not walking at Disney is really not an option hahahaha, however, it sounds like the walk is doable, wherever you are placed in the resort, which is a big plus with two little ones :)
So POR is larger and has more pools, the foodcourt and the restaurant and lounge
Does PORQ have its own foodcourt? The pics on the Disney website show the same foodcourt for both

So yes, POFQ has a food court of it's very own.
Tom (... POFQ also had a really cool slide in the pool but POR is still our favorite!)
I think the Disney website is lacking in showing all these resorts have to offer...
Guess in a way its a good thing? keeps people interested in staying at more expensive resorts hahahaha, but from what Ive read here, it is really worth a stay there :)
Ive never been to New Orleans, but would love to go sometime... :)
