    My family is staying at the Port Orleans. Where does the water taxi take you from there?

    Hi Camille! Welcome to planDisney!

    Every single one of the more than 25 Disney Resorts Collection hotels is amazing.  They each have their own unique theming, delicious and intriguing snacks, and incredible areas to swim and play, but I have to say that Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter have to be a couple of my very favorites.  I don't know if it's the nostalgia of staying here so many times as a child or the delicious beignets (let's be serious, it's probably the beignets) but I just keep returning to one Resort or the other!

    When you stay at Disney's Port Orleans, whether it's Riverside or French Quarter, you're in for a beautiful and easy trip down the Sassagoula River to Disney Springs.  The water taxi is a perfect way to relax after a long and exciting day at the Parks and is a great time to work up an appetite for some of the delectable treats you can find at Disney Springs, such as nearly half-pound cookies from Gideon's Bakehouse or some homestyle Southern fried chicken from Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'.

    While you're visiting Disney Springs you may want to think about taking in a show! The new Drawn to Life presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney is a theatrical dream that is NOT to be missed.  I've already seen this show twice with friends and I'm desperate to get my entire family down to Florida so that they can experience it too. Since you're just a quick boat ride away it will be easy to spend an evening enjoying dinner and a show at Disney Springs!

    Enjoy the rest of the planning process and come back to see us again if you have any other questions!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
