i like riverside alot
Riverside has always been the choice for my family. We have 3 children and Riverside had all the ammenities you'd expect for a family. We always stayed in the Mansions (Mangolia Bend mostly) which is close to the bridge to the pool and close to a bus stop.
From what I've heard, FQ is good for adults and is certainly much smaller. But the winding trails, onsite restuarant, beautiful landscaping of Riverside "had me at hello".
My vote is for FQ. The pool is just cool. Also, it was nice only having one bus stop and having a seat on that bus.

I can't vote, as I haven't been to either resort. But the main question is whether the rooms are nicer in one hotel or the other, since you can travel freely between the two resorts and use the restaurant,pool, etc. I am also thinking of staying there in Dec for 10 days so any opinions to the actual rooms would be great!
We loved POFQ for our honeymoon as it was quiet and v romantic. Riverside is probably better if you are a family.
French Quarter and the Magnolia Bend mansions are three stories with elevators; Alligator Bayou buildings are 2 stories with no elevators.
Here is a room in French Quarter:

Hope this helps!
