As I said before I want to stay at Port Orleans next time. I have stayed at one of the all stars and Carribbean Beach (which I loved). But I want to try a new one and I have to stay in the moderate zone.
Can anyone give me some differences between riverside and french quarter. What do each have? Benefits, limitations, where is it located, busses???

I am not going for quite a while but wanted to get thinking about it, I know nothing about either one.

The biggest difference between the two resorts is size. The POR is much more spread out, though it isn't as spread out as the CBR.

POR has large swimming with a slide that is more enjoyable for older children and a lake to rent boats. The FQ has nicely themed pool but it's slide is more for small children.

POR has a table service resturant, both resorts have food courts.

The POR has 4 bus stops IIRC, the FQ has only 1. The POR and FQ share Buses but the FQ is the first stop.

POR has a great show in its lounge performed by Bob Jackson. Here is is his web page if you want to see his schedule http://www.yehaabob.com/

Both Resorts have a shuttle boat to Downtown Disney.

Ultimately you can stay at one resort and use the other's services since they are right next to each other. I prefer the POR.

I stayed at both last Thanksgiving and FQ is far larger in walking distance. In FQ, it was a good 5-10 minute walk from my hotel room to the parking lot. At Riverside, it was a 2 or 3 minute walk.

I believe FQ has a great restuarant (dont remember the name) where we went for breakfast and it was really good. I believe it has a seafood theme and has a large unfinished wooden boat inside.

Are you sure you are not mixing them up? POR has the wooden boat in it's resturant Boatwrights dinning hall.

I stayed at French Quarter when it was still Dixie Landings back in 2000. It was alright, but my family took a long walk through Port Orleans and it seemed tons better. Plus, the walk from our bus stop to our room was a good 10 minute walk. That was my only problem.
