    Hello, my wife and I are going to be staying at the PO riverside from may 26-june 3. I was wondering is this time busy? Does anyone know if it would be easier to get bus transportation if we take the boat to downtown disney rather then catching it at PO?


    So the start of your trip will be fairly crowded, but as the week goes on you should see levels drop a bit. Even then it will certainly not be a "light" time of the year, but you should notice a pleasant easing of line wait times, bus wait times, etc. That's good news, right?!?

    As for bus transportation, here is the rules you should follow;

    • If you are going to a theme park, take the buses from your resort.
    • If you are going to another resort (say, for a meal), take the bus to Downtown Disney and then to that destination resort.

    There are a few exceptions to the second rule. For instance, if you are headed to a Magic Kingdom area resort on the monorail line (Contemporary, Polynesian, Grand Floridian), it can often be MUCH faster to take a bus to the Magic Kingdom, then the monorail to the respective resort.

    But if you are not 100% sure, there are two things you can do. First, you could send me a question via my bio page with details on where you are going (and what time of day, i.e. for a breakfast, etc.). I would be glad to provide a specific suggestion. More valuable is to always ask the resort transportation desk cast member what you should do. They will know, on a case by case basis, what to do.

    Have a magical vacation!
