    We are "first timers" staying at Port Orleans Riverside in September. I am still uncertain about the best transportation to and from each park. Is there anywhere that gives options to each park from our resort alone?

    Greetings Jackie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Walt Disney World vacation is just around the corner. How exciting!

    You are going to love the rural Louisiana theming, casual charm and fun recreational activities at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Complimentary bus transportation will be available to all four theme parks, both water parks, and Disney Springs; whereas, boat transportation is also available to Disney Springs. Minnie Van Service is a ride service that works with the Lyft app and is available to all Guests at an additional cost. Prices will vary depending on the distance traveled from your pick-up location to your final destination. Taxis and other ride-sharing services are also available. If you will be dining at another Disney Resort hotel during your vacation, I would suggest traveling from your resort by car. However, I recommend utilizing Disney's complimentary bus transportation when traveling to and from the parks. 

    During your visit, I highly recommend spending one evening in the River Roost Lounge at your resort to hEAR the entertaining Yehaa Bob Jackson. The complimentary show is available to Guests of all ages and is a family favorite. Be sure to venture over to Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter to try the delicious Mickey-shaped Beignets.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Jackie. Let us know if you have any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Happy Travels,
