    Jenny from MI Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Is there a way to get from Port Orleans Riverside to any of the parks by boat? (Other than Disney Springs). Also, can anyone ride the bus/boat from a resort to the parks. My mom is mtg us at the resort and going to the parks. Can she ride along with us?

    Hello, Jenny, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question.

    As a Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guest, you will have the convenience of many unique amenities. Disney Resort Transportation includes Ferryboats, water taxis, the Monorail, and motor coaches throughout. As well, any Guest visiting for the day has access to Disney's transportation system, so your mother, Jenny is most welcome to join you on your trip to the Theme Parks.

    Reaching all the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks from Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside can be done so by using Disney Bus Transportation. The Sassagoula River, unfortunately, does not reach the four Theme Parks, thus, cannot be reached by water taxi.


    Enhance your vacation plans by customizing through My Disney Experience with such details as Advanced Dining Reservations, securing FastPass+ experiences and personalizing your MagicBands.

    Over at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter, just a short distance away, head over for those ever-popular Beignets, as well as the Southern jambalaya and gumbo.

    We hope this information is helpful and wish you a magical and memorable vacation. Please feel free to consult us for any future planning.

    Best Disney Wishes~
