    Hi, we will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside first week of March 2018 (2 adults and 3 children ages 3, 6, 8). How long is the bus drive to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Epcot? And which bus stop at the resort is best to take the bus from? Thanks!

    Hi Kalina,

    Your family is going to LOVE Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside with its overall southern charm, stately mansions and serene atmosphere.

    You can use the Walt Disney World® Bus Service to reach the Disney Parks. Jump on a bus going from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside to Magic Kingdom Park. The travel time will be approximately 46 minutes door-to-door. Board a bus headed from the resort to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This ride should only take about 41 minutes. Finally, take the bus going from Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside to Epcot. This is your shortest ride yet. It only takes 38 minutes to get there.

    Keep in mind that Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside and Disney's Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter often share buses. When the combined bus service is operating, the shared buses will first stop at the French Quarter bus stop. Afterward, they will move on to the various Riverside bus stops. Within the Riverside resort complex, the theme park buses stop in the following order before departing for the parks. The first stop is at the West Bus Depot, the second at the North Bus Depot, the third at the East Bus Depot and lastly at the South Bus Depot. The bus stops have wait time screens displaying the current expected arrival times for each bus.
