    Approximately how far is each park via bus transportation from Port Orleans - Riverside? Also, how far is Disney Springs via water transportation from this resort?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Jessica, and welcome back to planDisney!

    September is one of my favorite months to visit Walt Disney World because the weather is warm, the crowds lower, and Magic Kingdom Park is spooktacularly decorated with jack-o-lanterns for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    I love Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside as it reminds me of growing up in the South. I think you are asking about travel times and not travel distance so let me share some approximate Walt Disney World Bus Service travel times from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside to each of the Theme Parks. Please note that these approximations are from the time the bus leaves the Resort bus depot until it pulls into the theme park bus depot.

    Bus service routes to Walt Disney World Water Parks vary. To get to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park you may have to take a bus to Disney Springs and then transfer to a bus to the water park. To get to Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park you may have to take a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and transfer buses. Please check with the front desk of your Resort for more specific details when you arrive.

    The journey to Disney Springs aboard the Sassagoula River Cruise will take about 20-25 minutes and if you have some leisure time, take a walk along the Sassagoula River to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter for some delicious beignets at Scat Cat's Club - Café

    planDisney Pro Tip: When I attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, I typically use the day to explore Disney Springs or relax by the pool. Even though the party starts at 7:00 p.m., the ghosts and ghouls allow Guests in around 4:00 p.m.

    Jessica, please let me know if you need any further assistance.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
