    My family is staying at the Port Orleans Riverside resort for our upcoming trip. How long does it take to get to each of the four parks via the Disney bus?

    Hi Britney!

    Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney! Your family is going to love Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. I will never forget when I stayed in the Royal Guest Room here with my daughter! I was amazed at the attention to detail in the theme of the room - from the genie faucet to the princess artwork to the magic carpet rug - it's absolutely gorgeous.

    As you mentioned, you can take the Disney Bus Transportation to the Disney Theme Parks and Disney Springs. The Disney buses begin running 45 minutes prior to the park opening up until an hour after closing and run every 20 minutes. Both Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter share a bus, so the bus will make multiple stops along the way to pick up additional Guests. This can result in a varying timeframe for how long it will take to get to the parks. However, I will provide a general guideline:

    From Port Orleans - Riverside (once the bus leaves the resort and picks up all Guests at both Riverside and French Quarter):

    Magic Kingdom: ~15 minutes
    Epcot: ~12 minutes
    Animal Kingdom: ~20 minutes
    Hollywood Studios: ~12 minutes

    When you are at Walt Disney World, I highly encourage you to check out the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration! At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, don't miss Disney's Kite Tails! This fun show features kites from The Lion King and The Jungle Book. You will also want to check out Avatar Flight of Passage!

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
