    Starting to plan a solo trip in February. This would be my first solo trip. I am thinking POFQ would be a good resort for a solo traveler. It is a small resort and I like that it close to DS. Thoughts???
    If after I book and a big enough room discount becomes available I was thinking of trying to switch to CR garden wing. Thoughts???

    I travel solo often. I can't think of a resort that would not be a good resort for a solo traveler. So my thoughts are POFQ would be a good resort for a solo traveler. In Sept I'm doing my third stay there - my second solo. My last solo trip there was during Irma. CR garden wing is also a good choice for a solo trip. I think if you can get the discount you want you will love that one, too.

    I did POR for my first solo in June and thought it was great. FQ is much more compact so there's less walking between your room and the lobby, buses, etc. but the resort itself it very nice (I took a walk over from POR to explore and get some beignets). I wouldn't pass it up if you can help it.

    I actually originally booked POFQ for my first solo in September because of the quick boat ride to Disney Springs. I ended up getting a great rate at AKL so i switched, but i would not have been disappointed with POFW.

    I agree with the above. I've stayed solo at POFQ, AKL and CS and all were great. I think it's more about the vaca experience you want than the fact you are solo.

    I always stay @ POFQ...I love it as a solo resort. I like the compactness of it, no matter where you are, it's never a far walk to anything. And bonus points for having the boat rides to & from DS. They're relaxing, and I like the close proximity for being able to go there for any meal & not eat a big chunk out of my time.

    I love to boat ride from PO to DS. So much better than dealing with a car or riding on a bus. I think it's a great choice.

    POFQ is my favorite moderate resort solo.

    I stayed at POFQ in February with my family and we loved it. Like Mike above it was actually my first choice for my upcoming solo trip when I booked it back in May but I ended up switching because I got a crazy deal at WL and haven't yet stayed there. That said I think POFQ would be an almost perfect spot for a solo trip. The boats to DS are awesome and the bus service was reasonably efficient. Add in that it's a quick walk over to the amenities at Riverside and it's hard to beat.

    All depends upon your budget. Any resort is great for a solo stay!
