    Are the boats currently running at Port Orleans?

    Hello, Heather! Thank you for visiting planDisney, your resource for tips, advice, and personalized insights from Guests just like you!

    Whether you’re planning on enjoying the Alligator Bayou of Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside or treating every day like Mardi Gras at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter, you’re Walt Disney World Resort vacation is almost here. 

    I have been visiting Disney World for over 30 years, starting with my parents and brother as a child and now continuing the tradition with my own family. My first visits were always spent at Disney’s Dixie Landing Resort (now Port Orleans—Riverside). I remember walking along the Sassagoula River to the French Quarter for a Mickey-shaped beignet, and the boat rides to Downtown Disney (now Disney Springs)—such a cool experience!

    As of this answer, and subject to change based on water and weather conditions, the Sassagoula River Cruise is running. The boats run every 20 minutes between each resort's Boat Launch and the Marketplace. While at Disney Springs, check out World of Disney, the world’s largest collection of Disney merch, Disney’s Days of Christmas for a personalized ornament to memorialize your visit, or swing by Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew for a warm homemade donut!

    Please let me know if you have any additional vacation planning questions for your upcoming visit to The Most Magical Place On Earth! I’d be happy to share more tips and recommendations with you!

    See you real soon!
