    Hello Moms Panel! We are planning our 2nd trip to WDW and super excited. We will be staying at the POR Riverside resort this go around and wondering if you can advise on which building at this resort would put us closest to the bus stops? Thanks greatly!!!

    Hi, there!

     Khadijah, I'm excited about your second Walt Disney World Resort vacation too! You will love Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. We stayed there a few summers ago and really enjoyed the unique theming and amenities. I'm happy to answer your question about the bus locations at this fabulous Resort hotel!

     I can certainly understand your desire to be near a bus stop. After a long day in the parks, we're always eager to get back to our Resort hotel room! Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside has four bus stops conveniently located around the hotel property. Whether you're staying in Alligator Bayou or Magnolia Bend, I think you'll find that the nearest bus stop to your hotel room will only be a 5 - 10 minute walk away.  To ensure closest possible proximity to a bus stop, you can request to be placed in a "Preferred Location," but this is generally an upgrade you will have to pay for. Did you know you can complete the check-in process online, prior to your arrival? In completing the check-in process online, you can add up to two room and amenity requests to your Resort hotel reservation. These requests are not guarantees, but an option to request a room "near transportation" is usually listed. 

     Khadijah, in addition to great amenities like water taxi transportation to Disney Springs, Guests of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside can also enjoy a variety of recreational activities. I hope you have time to enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride down the Sassagoula River or a swim at Ol' Man Island!

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
