    We will be staying at Port Orleans - Riverside. I am wondering which bus depot is the FIRST to be picked up of a morning? (This may help decide room preferences.)

    Hello Deborah, Welcome to the Disney parks Moms Panel.

    Many years ago, I visited Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside to catch Yehaa Bob Jackson at River Roost Lounge, a Disney legend and not-to-be-missed entertainer, and fell in love with all the resort had to offer. It is a resort with so much charm and offers so much to experience that I dreaded having to leave at the end of my visit.

    If there is anything that can be said about Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is that it is as big in heart as it is in actual size. This sprawling tribute to rural Louisiana is so big, that it offers multiple stops along the resort-wide Complimentary Bus Transportation to shuttle guests closer to their rooms.

    During the times that I have used the transportation at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, the shuttles have circled the resort clockwise starting at the Riverside West Depot before making their final stop at Riverside South (at the main building). When the bus service shares transportation duties with Disney's Port Orleans Resort- French Quarter, it stops at the Bus Depot at French Quarter first, before continuing on to Riverside West Depot. This applied to shuttles to and from the 4 Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

    For transportation to Disney Springs and the new Internal Shuttle between the 2 Disney's Port Orleans Resorts, the first stop is Riverside South then all stops around to Riverside East.

    Wherever you stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, I hope you have a magical vacation!
