I have stayed at both. I like Caribbean Beach, however, we tried POR for the first time last summer, and that is where we are staying this summer, needless to say I would definitely suggest POR. It's my new favorite now!

Have never stayed at either (we stay at a different moderate when we do a mod), but we have visited POR-Riverside numerous times and that would be our choice if ours wasn't available. The food court is very good, and you have the boat to DTD.

My first vote is POFQ, but that wasn't on your list. Riverside is much better than CBR in my opinion. There are more things to do at Riverside, and the boat to DTD is a nice freebie.

Enjoy your trip!

We love CBR! We have stayed at both and we just didn't care for POR. Good luck in your decision. Your at Disney so either resort you choose, you can't go wrong.

Stayed at both. I liked CB but didn't like the room. Only double beds but loved the kids pool/pirate ship. Riverside has queen beds, plus DTD boat. Out of the two I would pick Riverside only for the bigger beds, but agree with other post French Quarters is my favorite Mod.
