    We have an 8:50am Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment at Disney Springs. What is the best way to travel from New Orleans Riverside to Disney Springs at that time? Am I correct that the boats/bus will not provide service so early? Is it walkable?

    Dear Rebecca,
    Thank you for bringing us your questions about transportation to Disney Springs from Disney's Port Orleans Resort- Riverside!
    You'll see that an experience at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Disney Springs is a must-have for kids. I'm so glad you've booked one, good for you! 
    Complimentary bus transportation to and from all Disney theme parks and Disney Springs is offered usually 45 minutes Park opening, including Extra Magic Hours, which is normally at 8:00 am, meaning that there should be buses running from 7:15. If you were not in a bit of a rush, I would recommend hopping over to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter to enjoy a super calm cruise over to Disney Springs on a complimentary water taxi. However, if you are trying to get there early and want to avoid the stress, you may request a Minnie Van Service ride through the Lyft app. These are super cute polka-dotted vehicles operated by Disney Cast Members. Can you imagine your child arriving at Disney Springs for a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation in her own super cute Minnie-themed taxi? How cool that would be! 

    You can also request a ride-sharing vehicle and meet in the lobby or ask a Cast Member to help you find a taxi, they're usually very helpful with that.

    Rebecca, I hope this answer is useful in your planning. Don't forget we'll be here should you need more assistance with your vacation planning efforts!

    We wish a fun-filled vacation with all the pixie dust there is!

    See ya real soon,
