    We've stayed @ all 3: POP, POFQ, & POR. Our favorite is POR. We love the lush landscaping, laid back atmosphere, the food court selections, the main pool area with slide, hot tub, pool bar, & rocking chiars under huge ceiling fans to relax in with a nice playground right by. The boat to Downtown Disney is wonderful, as is POR's location to DD. You can also use the amenities @ POFQ, its sister resort. Give it a try!:D

    We stayed at POR on our last visit. It was excellent. It was clean, kids loved the pool, good food court. We loved that we could take the boat Downtown. It really had a great atmosphere.

    We have stayed at POR and POFQ. We prefer POFQ because it is a smaller and more compact than Riverside. We also like the theme a bit better - my DH is an avid jazz fan. At FQ all rooms are convenient and there is only one bus stop. You share a bus with Riverside and often you are the first stop at FQ giving you a better shot at seats ... and the first off at night. That may have changed but it was that way two years ago, before they closed it.

    Riverside is also very nice. Rooms are the same size. The decor inside the rooms and on the grounds is what is different. Keep in mind that POP is newer so everything will seem very clean. FQ was just recently completely refurbished and Riverside is in the process of being.

    We much prefer the food court and the general atmosphere at Riverside and FQ than when we visited All Stars. Haven't been to POP so can't comment. For us, the moderates are the best choice. I think it may depend on what you are used to ... and what theme you like.
