    We're staying at the PO: Riverside but have dinner reservations on our first night at the Grand Floridian. Will we need to drive ourselves to the other resort for dinner or is there transportation that is available for us?

    Hi Andrew, With Disney's wonderful transportation system, you can get anywhere on Property that you need to go without renting a car!

    From Port Orleans Riverside, you have several options. You can get on either the Epcot or Magic Kingdom bus (just jump on whichever happens to come first). Once you've arrived at the Park, head over towards the monorail entrance. You'll ride the monorail to the Grand Floridian Resort. Going back to Riverside, just do the same in reverse. Allow a little over an hour from when you leave your Resort to when you want to check in for your dinner reservations. This is because the buses come every 20 minutes or so, and you never know if you just missed a bus or if one is coming around the bend.

    Another option is to ride the ferry from Riverside to Downtown Disney, then take a bus to the Grand Floridian from there. This option is great if you wanted to browse the shops at DTD for awhile before heading to dinner.

    Of course, if you have your own vehicle, it would be much quicker to drive yourself to the Grand Floridian. It's up to you whether you want to park your car and leave the driving to someone else while you are on vacation.

    Enjoy your trip!
