POFQ - it's the perfect size. You'll never wait long for anything - bus, food, slide.

We stayed at both last year and POFQ was our favorite of the two. POR was just too big for us with 2 small children. (Our kids were 5 and 2 at the time). The buses for POR were always jam packed and there are 4 stops so it felt like we were always stopping when we'd rather be on our way to the parks. One night, after standing in line for over 20 minutes at MK, we opted to take the POFQ bus and walk back to our room.

We said from that point on we'd rather stay at POFQ without getting a discount vs. staying at POR with a discount. The rooms at both were nice so for us, it just comes down to the size. And, for what it's worth, my son absolutely loves the slide at POFQ. It's a dragon theme and he thought it was great. He doesn't remember much more about either resort but the dragon slide made his trip.

I'm sure you'll be fine at either resort but if it were my pick, it's POFQ without a question.

Note: We didn't care too much about the food at either resort so our preferences are solely based on the size of the resort, the transportation, and the overall feel. We did use our refillable mugs at the food court and we did have one quick meal during each stay at the food courts but I felt like they were all serving the same food. If it comes down to amenities at either, know that you can use both at either resort when you stay at one.
