    Are Ubers allowed to pick up guest at hotel eg Port Orleans and drive to Disney Spring. I was told the only transportation was boat. Thank you

    Hiya! Kathleen and welcome to the most sensational place on the internet to answer your specific Disney vacation planning questions, planDisney. Getting from place to place is what Tiggers like me do best, so let's get it.

    Uber, Minnie Van Service Connected by Lyft, and other rideshare options are allowed at specific locations at all Disney Resorts Collection Hotels. We have used rideshare at every visit (we do not drive our own car) to take us to and from the airport, to Disney Springs, to all the theme parks, and even to other Resort hotels. There is complimentary Walt Disney World Bus Service and Walt Disney World Water Transportation also from Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside and Disney's Port Orleans - French Quarter Resorts. Buses take you to the theme parks and Disney Springs and the boats take you down the Sassagoula River (about 20 minutes) across Lake Buena Vista to Disney Springs.

    Now that you know you have a complimentary option and a paid rideshare option for transportation your decision on which to use will depend on how fast you need to be somewhere and where that somewhere is located. Here is something really cool. The My Disney Experience app will create real-time turn-by-turn directions using the available complimentary Disney transportation. Just enter the beginning and final destinations and watch Mickey's magic work.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Whether you are at Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside Resort or Disney's Port Orleans - French Quarter Resort make sure to head over to Scat Cat's Club - Cafe for some delicious Mickey-shaped beignets. My mouth is watering just thinking about them.

    Kathleen, I hope this information helps with your October adventure.  Please write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
