When we stayed @ AKL 3 years ago we stopped at all the AK zone resorts plus CBR. Karma, I suppose, for the years we've been first (Poly '09 and GF '12.) I don't remember where we stopped the year we stayed at POFQ - not first but not after a tour of practically every WDW resort like the AKL year.

Well, as you can see....there are no set routes. I have been on the DME bus to BWV, and they have stopped at POR/FQ as well. Just figure on it taking you up to 90 mins, from gate to resort, and you should be fine.

ETA: never been at a slow time of day. The ME lines at the airport were ridiculously long the day I saw both POR and POFQ
As noted a bus can visit several resorts in a zone. But the zones are mainly for baggage handling to be perfectly honest.

A given bus can hop skip and jump between the zones.

Quite right my little Canadian buddy!!! Those 'zones' you see noted on the yellow tags are for baggage handling only.
Those bus routes, for guests, can vary from day to day. There is just no way to be sure which route your bus will take. Yes, they usually are pretty similar but they can change. So, it's never a good idea to count on a particular route...or length of time it takes to get to your resort.

This was my experience in June.
We are debating whether it is worth $~110.00 to bypass ME.

Last month we went to AoA, Pop, then CBR.

As you can see OP you can make your best guess, but there is no way of knowing for sure what route you will be on.
