Port Orleans French Quarter Transportation Options
Bus service to all four theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs (formerly known as Downtown Disney) runs one hour prior to park opening and one hour after park closing. Buses are scheduled to run every twenty minutes. That’s the official word from Disney; however, guests may notice that they run earlier, later and more frequently than the official time.
Port Orleans French Quarter has a single covered bus stop and it’s located near Port Orleans Square (the main lobby). The buses at French Quarter sometimes share with Port Orleans Riverside. If that is the case, the buses normally stop at French Quarter first when picking up and dropping off.
