    DM & I arrive 8/8 @ 3:40. Taking ME to POFQ. We have reservations for Artist Point. Will we have enough time to make the reservation. (originally staying at WL, but couldn't afford it, so we have to downgrade-how can you downgrade at disney? you can't!

    Hi there Ellen,

    First, let me assure you that Port Orleans is a wonderful location to call "home" while on your Disney vacation!  In fact, I just returned for a fantastic visit there myself, and fully intend to go back!  You are absolutely correct that all of the Disney resorts are magical and filled with fantastic amenities.  You don't mention what time your reservation at Artist Point is, so it's a bit tough to predict if you will be able to make it in time.  In my experience, you can anticipate arriving at your resort about an hour after you arrive at the Magical Express counter at Orlando International Airport.  Once you check-in, the best way to get to Artist Point using Disney transportation is to take a bus to the Magic Kingdom, and then take a boat over to Wilderness Lodge.  I would allow a bit over an hour to do this.  If you are pressed for time, you could also take a taxi from Port Orleans (the valet can help you secure one). 

    Have a magical trip!
