    We are staying at Port Orleans FQ in November, and have a reservation at Tusker House at 8:40 am. How long should we allow for the bus ride from POFQ to AK?

    Hi Christine!

    I'm happy to hear that you are planning on visiting Tusker House Restaurant because it's one of my favorite Character Dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort! I love the wide variety of dishes that this buffet offers because there's something for everyone in the family to enjoy. Plus, it's so much fun to meet Safari Donald Duck and his friends while you are enjoying your meal.

    Generally, it takes around 60 minutes to travel from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Since Tusker House Restaurant is located towards the back of Disney's Animal Kingdom, I recommend that you allow an additional 20-30 minutes to enter the theme park and walk to the restaurant.

    Keep in mind that you are enjoying an early breakfast reservation and complimentary resort transportation buses generally begin 45 minutes before park opening. So I recommend that you call the front desk of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter the day before your breakfast to get a bus schedule for the next morning so you can determine the bus time that will work to get you to your breakfast. If for some reason there isn't a bus available at the time you need or if you would like to enjoy a quicker transportation option, you can take advantage of the Minnie Van Service, which offers private, direct transportation throughout Walt Disney World Resort!

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app because it will give you navigation information for destinations throughout Walt Disney World Resort, as well as travel times when using the wide variety of complimentary transportation options available.  Also, come back to see us if we can help you again as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
