[QUOTE=skunis1;1041514]Well, FQ only has one bus stop so that is very convenient and I think it has a dedicated bus to MK which is really nice.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=buzz2001;1041517]Not really, they share with POR. I believe the dedicated MK bus is in the afternoon/evening hours.[/QUOTE]
FQ having it’s own bus is heavily dependent on time of day, time of year, and overall park population. The most often single bus is MK, but I have seen singles for the other parks during the heaviest attendance periods (Christmas, Easter).
So plan on sharing all your buses with Riverside. This means 5 stops total ( 4 at Riverside and 1 at FQ), but you’re the first stop when returning except the DTD bus.
CBR is 4 stops. I have stayed at POR as well and when we stayed there, we did not share any buses with FQ.
There is one other downside to FQ. They do not have a sit down restaurant, Boatwright’s at Riverside is the only sit down for both hotels and Boatwright’s only serves dinner.
But French Quarter is much smaller than any of the other mods and smaller than all of the values.
There is now only one one stop bus route in WDW and that’s Pop to anywhere, but Pop has 3,000 rooms. Compare that to the All Stars, which do share some buses between a total of 6,000 rooms!
I’d still stay at FQ over CBR.
