    Andrea, thank u 4 response about trans from POR to 9:30A Cindy res. You suggest earliest bus to make res, traffic may be heavy for personal vehicle. Would a taxi would be quicker and more reliable than bus, or would we experience same traffic? Thanks!

    Great question, Kim!

    We have taken a cab from Port Orleans to a breakfast reservation at the Contemporary when we felt that the bus ride might make us a bit too late. It was affordable, quick and very easy to obtain right at the lobby entrance. This could surely be a back up plan. If you go for this option, several of us on the Moms Panel suggest that you take the taxi to Disney's Contemporary Resort and use the quick and easy walkway to get to Magic Kingdom (Taxi service drops MK Guests off at Transportation Ticketing Center, which will only further delay your arrival.)

    Whether or not it will get you to Magic Kingdom before a bus relies on one thing: do you get onto the first departing bus, or do you miss it and have to wait for the next one? (We've been in both situations...) Either way, you'll have no worries getting into the park, after you get through bag check and the turnstiles, so get ready to have a wonderful day! What a great way to start, too, with breakfast at Cinderella' Royal Table! Enjoy!

    Send more questions as you think of them, Kim; we love to help!
