    Thanks for great information. Now I need specific advice: Staying at the POFQ from September the 10th till the 15th, how much time should I consider from the room to each of the parks to get there 20 minutes before park opening by WDW bus? Best, Single dad

    Hi Victor!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Port Orleans French Quarter is a guest favorite!  Enjoy!  Also, take the opportunity to explore Port Orleans Riverside.  As a guest of French Quarter you can use all of the services and amenities of Riverside, including its pool; if you have older children, the Riverside pool has a relatively long water slide.

    Buses typically run about every twenty minutes at Walt Disney World and it typically takes between 15 and 20 minutes to get to a theme park from Port Orleans French Quarter.  If you want to be at a park about 20 minutes before park opening, then I suggest showing up at the bus stop about 60 minutes before park opening.  If you don't mind just arriving as the park opens a few times, you should show up at the bus stop about 45 minutes before park opening and hope that you just didn't miss a bus.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
