We are staying at POFQ, it was the one bus stop that was the decider for us. We plan on walking to POR and eating there and spending time there on non park days. I think POR looks nicer but the size and the fact we do not spend a huge amount of time in our room or resort made use choose convenience over looks.

We prefer POR because its larger and therefore the people are more spread out. We stayed in September which is a slow time, so the resort felt nearly empty. No elbowing at the bus stop, no hunting for seats in the food court. We also loved the quiet pools. POFQ seemed much more crowded to us since it was so compact. It also has a bit of a "city" type vibe since it's supposed to be modeled after Bourbon St in New Orleans. POR has a much more tranquil, peaceful vibe IMO.

have only stayed at POR, visited POFQ though. We prefer POR for all the reasons stated by others on here. My MIL prefers POFQ, but really just for it's size. She has trouble with her back now, so likes less walking. But, she does really like the landscaping at POR and the food court better, too. It really depends on what your priority is for staying someplace. I vote for POR, but you will love either.

POR Mansion section is our choice. POR has lush greenery and a more tranquil, relaxing feel to it. We like that better than the over-the-top Mardi Gras theme of POFQ.
