    How often do buses get shared between Riverside and French Quarter? I have read that they sometimes share buses, but have not been able to find any specific information about when this sharing is most likely to happen. Thank you in advance!

    Hi Lucia, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian!

    Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter is probably my family’s favourite Moderate Resort Hotel. I absolutely love the Resort’s Mardi Gras-inspired theming, those amazing beignets that you can find at Scat Cat’s Club – Café and the Resort’s relatively compact size. You never have to walk very far from your room to access any amenities, which is always a great feature when your feet are tired after a day of touring the Theme Parks. 

    Another advantage is the fact that, sometimes, Disney Bus Transportation will run directly from Disney’s Port Orleans – French Quarter to some of the Theme Parks. Based on my experience, this is typically the case all day for Magic Kingdom Park (yay!) but I’ve sometimes found that the bus will head directly to a park from the Resort, especially around that park’s scheduled opening time. Please note that, even if you are sharing a bus with Guests staying at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, the French Quarter stop is typically the very first to drop Guests off (and pick them up) in this area. If you have any questions about the transportation schedule during your stay, please don't hesitate to ask your Resort's Lobby Concierge

    I hope my answer helps you plan a smooth journey throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day!
