    Hi there! We are staying at POR and we were looking at the boat transportation options. Was wondering if you are able to take the boat from Riverside to Saratoga Springs ? Thanks 

    Hi Tiffany!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. In just over two weeks, you’ll be on your way to experience the Sassagoula River, Disney style!

    Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside is a beautiful lush property and one of my ultimate favorite places to stay. There is something so quaint and serene about this property. I love the dining options and enjoy taking a stroll down the Bayou to Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter.

    One of the most unique features of this Resort hotel is the man-made, recreated Sassagoula River that winds through beautiful wooded space past Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa to Disney Springs.  If you are looking for a relaxing and serene ride, then hop on board the complimentary water taxi, where you will enjoy beautiful views and a leisurely ride. While the water taxi will take you past Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, it doesn’t make a stop there on its way to or from Disney Springs. You could consider transferring water taxi’s at Disney Springs to get to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa; however, you would then have to take the water taxi back to Disney Springs and transfer again to get back to your Resort hotel.

    I hope that you enjoy this Resort hotel and the amenities as much as I do! If you are able to head over to Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, make sure to try my favorite snack, the beignets!

    Have a magical time!
