There are lots of ways to do this, but using Disney transportation all require a change of bus (so allow at least double the time you'd expect for the journey - an hour should be OK).

For GF, I'd get the bus to the Magic Kingdom and then get one of the small ferry boats from the dock located on the left just before you get to the monorail station. If there's no boat in sight, the monorail might be a quicker option but remember that it's the fourth stop.

For the Yacht Club... you could get a bus to Epcot and walk through the park to the International Gateway between UK and France, then walk over to the YC (quite a lot of walking). You could also get the bus to Studios and then either walk from there or get another bus over to the YC if you don't fancy the walk.

ETA: We will not have a car, relying on Disney transportation or cab service.
Andrewilley gave you excellent advice on WDW transportation. For meals I would use a cab, I think. Mears has a link on their website that will allow you to get an estimate of what the ride would cost.

We're staying at POFQ in a few weeks, and our EMH just got changed on us, so instead of being at the club to watch Elliott Dyson on Thursday, we will have our free night on Friday.

My question is - Does Elliott play on Friday night?

We will be staying at POFQ this weekend. On Halloween we are considering taking the kids to Boardwalk. I believe they have some good Halloween festivities there in the evening. What would be the best way to get from POFQ to Boardwalk? Should we drive or take the bus?

We know Downtown Disney also has trick or treating but I thought it would be more crowded than Boardwalk.

Thanks!

Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Or...French_Quarter

I had an occasion to check out the POFQ listing on Wikipedia. While mostly accurate, the first outside link points to Intercot. There is no mention of The Dis. What's wrong with this picture?

I assume you have added one, as there's a wdwinfo link now.

Just back from 3 fantastic nights at POFQ. We had room 5102, which is right across from the hot tub. It was just a few steps from the food court. We thought it would be the perfect place for a romantic vacation. The resort just ooozzed charm and southern hospitality. This is my favorite moderate by far! We ate a bushel of beignets...those things are soooo addictive! we also ordered a pizza one night; it wasn't bad at all. The boat ride to DTD was great and was the beautiful walk over to POR.

I am glad you all had such a great time! It is also our favorite moderate!

Did you spend any time at Scat Cat's lounge? I am very much looking forward to that next month when we are there.

Does anyone know if there is a TV in the lounge at Scat Cats? I can't remember and lord forbid that DBF miss the Big XII Championship game. It's bad enough he'll miss the KU-MU game.
