    We have resv. for Calif. Grill on 5/21 and staying for the fireworks. How do we get back to POR from the Contemporary? Someone suggested to take a bus to DHS and transfer to POR bus, but DHS closes at 9. Do buses still run TO a park after it's closed?

    Hi Deanne!  The best way using Disney transportation back to your resort, Port Orleans, from the Contemporary resort is to walk to the Magic Kingdom bus area and catch the Port Orleans bus from that point.  It is a short 8 minute walk from the resort and I recommend this versus the monorail since you would have to make the full loop to get back to the Magic Kingdom. When parks close the monorails will be quite full and crowded.  The park bus area is close to the Contemporary which makes it even more convenient.

    The Magic Kingdom park closes at 9:00pm on 5/21 and buses and Disney transportation will run for at least one hour after closing or until all park guests have been accommodated.  You would not have any difficulty finding a bus at this time.

    The absolute fastest and easiest way to reach your resort is to simply catch a cab outside the Contemporary.  It would most likely be about $20 but it would be quick and easy!  Our family has cheated many times and done just that!
