    Will be in Disney first week nov 2013 staying port Orleans riverside booked a standard room will I be really far from the food court and bus stops? Don't plan on spending much time at the resort but have 3 children to get to bus stops. Thanks for the help

    Hi Angela!
    My family and I are true fans of Disney's Port Orleans Riverside!  The resort is beautifully landscaped, and offers guests the opportunity to stay in stately Mansions or Alligator Bayou rooms.  Ole Man Island has a fantastic pool area, and the proximity to Downtown Disney (via relaxing water taxi) can't be beat!
    Standard rooms are located in the Magnolia Bend and Acadian House of the Mansions section.  They traditionally will face the parking lots or offer obscured views of the grounds.  There is a bus stop outside of each of these Mansions.  Closest to the North Depot bus stop is Acadian House, and Magnolia Bend is located near East Depot.  In the Alligator Bayou section, buildings 16, 17, 24, 25, 26, 28, 34-28 all offer standard accommodations.  Closest to the West Depot bus stop is 24, 25 or 34.  We've stayed in Magnolia Bend and were able to take a short stroll to the food court and hopped on the bus right at the front of the resort.   It took us less than five minutes, so I would definitely recommend looking into the Mansions section. 

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
