    Staying at POFQ 6-12 thru 6-18, travel from resort by bus to Epcot or MK then rail or boat to Gr Fla for ADR, which would be quicker/easier, & how long (@) is transport from POFQ to Epcot vs MK?

    Hi John!  

    Unless you choose to take a taxi cab from Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you should allow at least an hour for travel.  By Disney bus, board one heading to Magic Kingdom Park.  From there, you have two options.  You can board the Resort Monorail, and the Grand Floridian will be the forth stop.  Alternatively, you can board a Disney Motor Launch (boat) from Magic Kingdom Park to the Grand Floridian.  It will be the very first stop.  If you catch the launch right away, it will be super quick.  If you just miss one, you could wait another 15-20 minutes.  Look for the gold flag on the bow of the boat, and confirm your destination with the Captain.  Depending on which mode of transport is first available upon your arrival at Magic Kingdom, either route could be "quicker."

    Once you board a Disney bus,  the actual travel time to Magic Kingdom Park is quicker than the trip to Epcot.  It's about 20 minutes to Magic Kingdom Park, and roughly 35 minutes to Epcot Theme Park from Port Orleans French Quarter Resort.   I'd definitely stick with the Magic Kingdom route.  The Grand Floridian is a Magic Kingdom Resort.  

    I hope this helps, and I wish you a MAGICAL vacation!
