    What would be the easiest way to get from POR to HDDR and how much time should we give ourselves for travel. Will we be able to see the fireworks after at MK? I want to keep travel time low as 2 members of our party don't arrive until 5pm that day. risky?

    Hi Kim!

    The easiest and fastest way is to take a taxi from Port Orleans Riverside to Fort Wilderness for the show!  If you want to use free Disney transportation, then I suggest taking the bus from Riverside to the Magic Kingdom.  Then instead of heading into the park, head down to the boat launch for Fort Wilderness.  Get on the boat to Fort Wilderness.  It's a nice relaxing ride on the Seven Seas Lagoon and then Bay Lake.  I would show up at the bus stop at Riverside an hour and a half before show time.  That should give you plenty of time to make it to the Magic Kingdom and then on to the boat!

    I don't know what show you're signed up to see to have an opinion about your 2 guests that don't arrive until 5:00.  But if you are concerned about the time, then definitely go with a taxi.  They're the fastest way to get around Walt Disney World and relatively inexpensive!
