Last year, we were in AB building 24, about as far from the main building as you can get facing the parking lot, and right near the path to the west depot (Partierre Place closest to POFQ is about the same) and it was only about a 7 minute walk to the food court. POR and POFQ are sister resorts, and joined by a walkway along the river. You can use the POFQ pool, and even from building 24, it was about a 20 minute walk to POFQ for Begniets.

Did you walk through the parking lot? I was in building 35 and it was a LONG walk to the food court. Longer than just 7 minutes through the twisty-turny paths. If I were to stay at POR again I would stay over at in one of the Mansions but I realize that is not an option for the OP.

No we followed the path, but it wasn't as twisty as some of the others. We could walk off the stairs near the quiet pool, and it was a pretty straight shot down past building 27 (the side farthest from the food court). I timed it a couple of times when I went to get coffee for myself and my wife.

I think we were also in Bldg 35, but I felt like the walk was more of the journey rather than just a way to get to the food court. It was a really nice walk.
