    Changed from CSR to POR Royal Room Garden. Seems to be good location to food/pool. 1) where is best to catch buses w/ 2.5 yo & infant? 2)will we be able to catch a bus for our 8:35 am ADR @ CRT on 6.28.13 or do we need to look at alternatives?

    Hi Mysha,

    I think you are going to be very happy with your choice. The Royal Rooms at Port Orleans Riverside are gorgeous.They are located in buildings 90 and 95 of the resort, which are convenient both to the East Depot bus station and to the main bus station in front of the hotel lobby.

    Magic Kingdom opens at 9 a.m.on June 28, so you will get to enter for your breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table while Main Street is empty. It's a great bonus to get to take pictures in front of the castle before most guests arrive.

    I would suggest you plan to be at the gates of Magic Kingdom by about 8 a.m. There will be a special entrance designated for those with breakfast reservations.

    Normal bus service won't start until about 8, but the resorts make special arrangements for guests with early dining reservations. You can double-check with the guest services desk at the hotel the night before to let them know you will need early transportation, but, generally, if you are at the main bus station by 7:15 to 7:30 a.m., you should find a cast member organizing special buses.

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if I can offer any more advice before your vacation. Enjoy your time with your family!
