    We arrive at Port Orleans quite late on a Friday and have breakfast booked at chef mickeys the next morning at 7...how do we get there?

    Hi Nadine!

    It sounds like the beginning of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is practically perfect in every way!

    Whether you are staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside or Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, you are going to love your Resort hotel! Both are absolutely beautiful, have wonderful pools, and both have great dining options.

    Your first dining reservation is fabulous! You will absolutely love Chef Mickey's! It's one of my family's favorite restaurants! The buffet is great, and meeting some of your favorite Disney Characters amidst the splendor of the iconic A-frame Contemporary tower, while the Monorail zooms by, is 100% MAGIC! I know you and everyone traveling with you will enjoy every magical moment!

    One recommendation to get from your Resort hotel to Disney's Contemporary Resort is to use the Minnie Van Service. The red and white polka dot vehicles are an efficient, magical, and whimsical way to make your way to select locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort. The Minnie Van Service operates from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM daily, and hours of operation are subject to change. When you arrive at your Resort hotel, if you stop by the front desk, they can also assist you by providing information regarding all of your options to Chef Mickey's. A taxi or ridesharing service may also be a perfect option given your early reservation time.

    I couldn't be more excited for you! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just a few short days away and I know you are going to have a magical time!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you have any other questions as you put the finishing touches on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
