    What is the best way to travel from Port Orleans riverside resort to the Tri D ranch?


    My family just got back from a Spring Break trip to Walt Disney World, and a visit to the Tri-Circle-D Ranch was on the top of our list! It has been completely rebuilt, and the facility is beautiful.

    The most convenient way to get from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside to the Tri-Circle-D Ranch is to take a bus from your resort to the front of the Magic Kingdom. You are only a short walk away from the boat dock where you can catch a ride to Fort Wilderness. When you arrive at the dock, you are just a short 1/4 mile (1/2 km) walk to the ranch.

    BONUS TIP #1
    Just so you don't think that we Walt Disney World veterans don't ever get it wrong, I will warn you that the ranch is not open to visitors all day long. I did not think to check ahead of time, and on the first day we visited the ranch had closed just an hour before we arrived. So be aware that the ranch is only open for visitors from 10 am to 5 pm.

    BONUS TIP #2
    If time allows, and you have a little one with you, consider planning in a pony ride!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
