    We are staying at Riverside and have an 8:20 reservation at Be Our Guest. What time should we catch the shuttle to get there and through the gate on time?

    Hello Elsa!
    Wow, you have chosen a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort to stay at! Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is awesome and it is one of my favorite places to stay in Walt Disney World! I would plan for a minimum of 60 minutes of travel time using Disney transportation to get from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside to the Magic Kingdom Park and then to get to your Advanced Dining Reservation at the Be Our Guest Restaurant. There are some factors that add time to this journey-like how long you have to wait for a Disney bus to pick you up at Riverside (typically buses come approximately every 20 minutes) and then how long it takes to go through security and the magic portals (the touch point ticket/MagicBand scanners). Also once you get into the Magic Kingdom Park you will have to walk through the Magic Kingdom to New Fantasyland to get to the Be Our Guest Restaurant. I would recommend that you get to the bus stop at Riverside (there are four bus stops-you can choose the closest one to the building that you are staying in) between 7:00 pm and 7:20 pm be ensure that you have enough time to get to your 8:20 pm Advanced Dining Reservation for the Be Our Guest Restaurant. I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
