    How do I figure out what time to leave Disney Riverside for our dining reservations and the best way to get there! I know the buses start 1 hr before the parks open. 12/2 800 1900 Park fare. 12/3 745 chef Mickey. 12/4 800 akershus 12/5 830 Tusker house.

    Hi Erin!

    Disney bus transportation is a very convenient and comfortable service.  It is always recommended to arrive at a bus station at least 60 minutes before your dining reservation.  During holidays or other high season the suggested time is at least 90 minutes.

    To ensure the best transportation experience, I suggest asking a Disney Cast Member at your resort Concierge Desk to help set up an early pick up for your early breakfast reservations.
    The Cast Member can arrange the best transportation to all the restaurants, including the ones in other resorts.
    Make sure to ask at least 2 days before your reservations.

    Driving a car or taking a taxi will probably save plenty of time, but at an extra cost.  These are also the best way to travel from resort to resort.

    Disney Port Orleans-Riverside is a beautiful big resort, and I always recommend asking for a room close to a bus station and laundry room.

    Thank you for visiting and letting us help you plan a magical Disney vacation.
