    We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside and when I was making my reservations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Downtown was all that was available. They suggested I take the Water Taxi instead of the bus. How do we take that and what hours do they run?

    Hello William!

    One of my favorite things about staying at either section of Port Orleans is the water taxi service along the Sassagoula River.  Guests staying in the Riverside section can board dockside just outside the Sassagoula Steam Boat Company (where the main lobby is housed).  The boat ride is a relaxing tour that takes around 25 minutes before reaching its final destination at Downtown Disney.  The boats typically run from 10 a.m.- 11p.m. and when catching the boat back to your resort make sure to take note of the flags, the yellow flag signals the boats route to Port Orleans.  If  you are traveling during a busy time of year make sure to give yourself plenty of time.  Although it has only happened to me once, we have had to wait for the next boat.  There is also bus service to Downtown Disney, if you would prefer to try that option.  These buses run until 2 a.m. and can also be a good option for park hopping in the evening.  I hope this helps and please let us know if you have anymore questions!

    Enjoy your "Disney Time!"
