    Trying to decide between POFQ or POR for our June '12 trip. Daughter has special needs and we need to be close to the buses. What's your recommendation? Thanks!

    Hi, Jacqueline!

    Without hesitation, I would send you to Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter. as the smallest resort on disney property, you'll find everything to be within easy reach. The grounds are lovely and quiet, but there are enough activities available to satisfy any family group.

    When you call to book your reservation, tell the Cast Member that your daughter has some special needs that will require her to be close to the main building (at POFQ, there is one bus stop in front of the main building, which is  also home of the food court and small shop). Request building two (2), which is a two-minute walk from the front, and is right near the playground and pool.

    The Cast Member will do his/her best to accommodate you; unfortunately, these requests are not always able to be met. That's why I highly recommend you get your request in as early as possible - and reiterate it when you are at check-in.

    Have a wonderful stay!

    See you later, celebrator,
