Disney Hotels with Water Taxi to Disney Springs

The shuttle continuously runs between the two properties and also to Disney Springs. The trip takes about 20 – 30 minutes depening on where you get on. The French Quarter appeals more to the younger families with the main pool having a serpent tongue for a water slide and a fun kids splash park.
Port Orleans Riverside Resort is at the upper-west side of the two (2) properties.
