    Which resort is better for bus transportation to the parks, Pop Century or Port Orleans Riverside?

    I would say POP.

    POP does not share with other resorts, POR Shares with POFQ most of the time.

    POP tends to have more frequent buses at peak times but that is because of the loads POP has more rooms than POR. - This translates to more fuller buses (but POR has it's share of full buses too!)

    POP has one huge bus stop for the whole resort. I've see nthe crowds waiting here be huge for MK. PO has one stop at POFQ and then four stops in POR if the bus run hits all locations. The bus usually fills up by the second POR stop unless it's an off hour.

    I'd recommend POFQ as it's usually first on the bus pickup list, has a smaller feel than either POR or POP, has a great food court, and has a cool theme pool (especially for the younger set).

    I actually prefer the buses at POP. Yes, it is a far larger resort, but it does have more buses running back and forth.
    But, I tend to recommend against choosing a resort based on buses. There are too many other variables.
    At POP you have just the one stop. But, you do have many more people at that stop. Each park does have it's own que though.
    POFQ is a terrific resort. But, it will most likely share a bus with POR, which has four bus stops..which is a total of 5 for that route. I have been on the bus when it has already stopped at FQ before heading to POR..so it's not a given that FQ is first.
