Conversely, we had zero problems at CSR but other people complained. I think it's luck of the draw, but your odds are probably improved with just one stop.
We just got back from POR a week ago and also found the bussing disastrous. It was a nightmare. One morning at 10am we waited 33 minutes for a bus to MK and who knows how long the people already there waited. Buses were almost always full when they arrived at the south depot and we had to stand on nearly every bus we took. We finally started taking POFQ buses from the parks back to the resort and would grab something to eat there and then take the boat to POR or walk. It was faster and less stressful. We also preferred the food at FQ. Unfortunately we are a family of 5 so we can't stay there but we would LOVE to.
We loved the POR grounds and cast members but it was too spread out for us. I think the only way we could do it again is in a preferred building but even then I can't imagine dealing with the bussing (although timing is everything and perhaps we just kept hitting it at a bad time).
