what other resort shares DME with POR

We have never taken DME to POR usually we drive. Im just trying to figure out which resorts we will be on the bus with. Also is POR the last to be dropped off? TIA!!

There's no set route. Usually it's on a route with POFQ (naturally), often OKW, sometimes SSR, sometimes Pop Century and AOA. Sometimes even Fort Wilderness. Could also be the Epcot resorts (Boardwalk, Yacht Club, Beach Club). The number of resorts on the route totally depends on how many they have going to nearby resorts, in general up to 4 resorts are on the same route - sometimes more if you're arriving very late at night or something. On occasion I've seen five resorts on one bus at midday - but not that often. And that was the 3 Allstars, plus CSR and AKL. But if there were enough people to fill a bus, I don't doubt you could see five resorts on a bus in the POR area.

As for dropoff order, there's no set order to that either. It completely depends on how many resorts they are supposed to stop at and what route the driver takes.

When I stayed at POR last October, the resorts included on the route were POR, YC, BC, and Boardwalk. I was surprised that POR was the first stop given that it's a moderate resort and not deluxe. I'm sure the route varies depending on the time of day and number of people waiting on a bus.

There's no preference for deluxe resorts. They won't necessarily get dropped off first.

Thank you! Good to know! Im one of those crazy people (maybe im the only crazy person) That likes to drive through other resorts just to see what it looks like. We always have meals and the poly and GF but don't normally see other resorts. Like when we stayed at POP a few years ago we dropped off at CB first and I was really excited to see the property!

I have noticed that the DVC resorts tend to get dropped off first, but that's just an observation and not necessarily always the case.

ETA: On my last trip ME stopped at Yacht Club, Beach Club, Saratoga Springs, POFQ and then POR.

It's definitely not always the case. I'm usually dropped off last, mostly at Boardwalk. No priority for DVC resorts either.

In January we stopped at YC and then POR, and then he had to go somewhere else because a family staying at another resort was put on our bus in error.

On our most recent visit in early February 2013 we stopped at YC, BC, Boardwalk and POFQ all before arriving at riverside. On our way back to the airport it was POR, POFQ, OKW and SSR.

For what it's worth:

Feb 2012 I was at BC - ME stopped at POR first, then BW, YC, BC.

Feb 2013 I was at POFQ - ME stopped at OKW, SSR, then POFQ (POR was on a different route). Our bus wasn't even half full, and I was the only one going to POFQ.

Hmm I guess it changes depending on the time of year.

All 4 times I have stayed at POFQ/POR we shared a DME bus with SSR and OKW.

It was always in this order- OKW, SSR, POFQ & POR

When I used DME in September for the Tower of Terror Ten Miler weekend I was staying at Yacht Club and was aboard a bus that stopped first at Riverside, then at Boardwalk, then Beach Club, THEN Yacht Club.

I guess it goes to show you that is really is random!

Just for more proof there is no rhyme or reason to it, first trip was POR/POFQ/SSR with POR getting dropped off first and last trip it was POR/Poly/GF with POR getting dropped off first. Looks like it will be a surprise
