    We have a dinning reservation at The Boathouse at 8:45 on our last night at Disney. We will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside and would like to take the ferry boat to and from Disney Springs that night. How late does the ferry boat run?

    Hi there McKenna,

    There are few things in life more soothing and enjoyable than a ride down the Sassagoula River at Walt Disney World. If I close my eyes, I can hear the crickets chirping, smell the magnolia blossoms, and feel the water lapping gently against the side of the water taxi. I highly recommend that you take this form of transportation from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside to your dinner at the Boathouse on the last evening of your vacation. 

    Guests typically can rely on water taxi service being available between your resort and Disney Springs until 11:30 pm so you should have no trouble concluding your meal in time to catch that boat back to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. (As you head to the Boathouse for dinner that evening, it would be a great idea to confirm the hours of the water taxi service with the captain who is transporting you.) 

    However, if the food and beverages at the Boathouse are too delightful to leave before 11:30 pm, rest assured that you can catch a Disney bus back to your resort until a few hours later.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
