Port Orleans FQ?

We’re planning a quick weekend trip to WDW at the end of February. We generally stay at the Epcot area resorts, but wanted to try a different resort this time, and POFQ came to mind. I think the theming of POFQ is great, but DH is a bit skeptical about having to take the buses to all of the parks. For anyone that has stayed at POFQ, would you recommend it? Were there long waits for the buses ( I heard POFQ shares with POR)?

Thanks!

We love POFQ - have stayed there at least 10 times and shared with Riverside just a handful of times over those 10 stays.

I stayed at POFQ in September and it had honestly the best bus transportation that I have experienced at a Disney resort.

Just back from staying there during Christmas week!First time staying there(we have always stayed at POP) and we loved it!Loved it so much that we are staying there again in October! It's small,peaceful,beautiful and it only has one bus stop! Regardless of what building you are staying in you are so close to the bus stop! We thought the buses were great too,we never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus! We only shared a bus with Port Orleans Riverside two times also(they were during off times).

I agree with this. When we stayed at POFQ in 2010 the buses were awesome. We never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus and despite some of those buses being shared with POR, we were the first stop.

The resort itself is quite lovely, very quaint with a lot of beautiful landscaping. Our room faced the courtyard with a view of the Sassagoula river to our right, really nice. It took no more than 7 minutes to walk anywhere on its property, and we enjoyed the boat ride to DTD and POR (we would take the boat over so DD could see her "horshies!" and eat a late dinner on most nights).

Even though both Port Orleans share a bus, the bus stop at POFQ is the first to pick up, so going to the parks you won't need to worry about space on the bus. Also, the boat to DTD is fantastic!
