If there are more than 2 of you, I'd choose SOG because the rooms are large.

Next choice would be CSR. It's deluxe lite.
Limited room service
Fantastic food court
Great pool and play area
The rooms feel more like a deluxe. There is a set of beautiful sliding doors to separate the dressing are from the bedroom area.
Bus only serves CSR
There are 3 themed areas which are very pretty. We like to walk around the lake to see the landscape.

I appreciate all your comments very much!
A word of caution if you didn't call already to check -
Often with the military discount, you may find that the only rooms at POR available are the Royal Rooms. Sometimes that can be a tad more when you are doing your cost analysis. We had lucked out twice and got regular, garden view rooms, but other times I've called all they have is the Royal rooms.

Well, I'm back from our trip and can now post my opinion on this question. We stayed at POFQ and thought it was mediocre - housekeeping was really dismal and the room was pretty dirty. The beds made this awful, loud sound every time we twitched. In comparison SOG was luxury, huge and clean. But the 60 days out for FP+ at POFQ allowed me to get 2 FP for Mine Train and 1 for Anna/Elsa. That was pretty cool.
Next time, I think I'll choose SOG and hope for some Fastpasses.

I really think Disney needs to do something about housekeeping! Stayed at Polynesian last fall & and it was not clean! Had an awful time getting coffee cups & pods - housekeeping came in & made beds and swiped bathroom - couple times did not leave toilet paper!! After day at parks went to front desk late at night but they could't give us any - it was delivered about 2AM!
