The transportation options make the resort worth its price tag.
One of the biggest issues my family has with some of Disney’s moderate and value resorts is the lack of transportation options.
At Port Orleans, the parks and Disney Springs can be reached by bus, boat, or Minnie Van Lyft. During most of our stay, we were able to ride the complimentary Disney bus straight to the park of our choice.
Depending on the time of day and level of demand, occasionally French Quarter and Riverside share a bus.
The boat transportation to and from Disney Springs is also unique — it’s a must-do at least once. Disney vacations are often fast-paced, so it’s nice to slow down and enjoy the boat ride.
