    My wife and I just booked a 2 day stay at Port Orleans Riverside (with a 10, 7, 4, 1 yr olds) and was wondering what section we should stay in. Also, what is the order of the bus stops (trying to maxiumize the chances of getting a bus seat)? Thanks!


    I would suggest that your best bet is to ask for a room in buildings 14-18 or 27, near the hotel's main building. This keeps you close to the main pool, as well as all the amenities in the hotel's lobby building.

    This also places you near the first bus stop, also known as the south depot. It can be pretty packed in the morning as the breakfast crowd boards buses to the parks. But that is always preferable to the buses being packed to the gills when they get to any of the other three stops.

    Let me know if you have any other questions by asking me directly at my bio page.

    Have a magical vacation!
