    Just reserved for my family of four(11yo, 6yo, hubby)at POR. How long will it take to get to the MK? Would it be more convenient to stay at Wilderness cabins? Don't have lots of $$, but convenience to parks is priority. Is the other PO resort nicer?

    Hi Mary!
    I think where you are staying, Port Orleans Riverside, is just fine. In fact, it is the only moderate resort that I recommend to is my favorite! It would not be more convenient to stay at Fort Wilderness. In some ways, it is actually less convenient when it comes to Disney transportation.
    Expected travel time by bus to Magic Kingdom on average, once you have boarded the bus, is about 20 minutes or so.
    I would not have any reservations about staying at Port Orleans Riverside...the theming is great, the pool on Ol' Man Island is great, and the food court is one of the better ones on property.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical vacation!! :)
