    Hello! My wife and I are planning a trip to Disney this June and cannot decide between PO Riverside and the Carribean Beach resort! The biggest thing we look for when booking the resorts are ease of bus transportation. Which is best for getting to parks?

    Hi Brett,

    Thank you for your question. Both the Disney's Port Orleans--Riverside and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort are so beautiful. I can understand why you're having a hard time deciding! When it comes to getting the parks, both Resorts offer great bus transportation. It's very easy to get to and from your favorite parks and the resort you decide on. One thing that does separate the two is that Port Orleans Resort--Riverside offers ferryboat transportation as well. I'm one of those guests that loves options, so knowing that we can decide to take the ferryboat during one of our mornings to the park is a plus for me.

    You may also want to think about what will be on your agenda during your trip. Port Orleans--Riverside is in the Downtown Disney Resort area while Caribbean Beach Resort is located in the Epcot Resort area. If you plan on spending quite a bit of time in Downtown Disney, then it would make sense to stay at Port Orleans--Riverside. 

    I hope this answer helps you with your vacation planning, Brett. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask us at any time.

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
