    Transportation to Port Orleans

    On an upcoming trip we are hoping to see YeeHaw Bob at River Roost at Port Orleans and are staying at Old Key West. Will we be able to drive and park at the hotel even though we are not guests? Is it possible to walk? I just don't want to wait for a bus or boat from Downtown Disney and then another connecting bus to get to a place that is only about a mile away.

    Drive if you are not drinking. The guard shack will instruct you where to park. There are not sidewalks so walking is not an option. Those roads are high speed around there, way too risky especially at night.

    POR and Key are very close to each other. My suggestion if you want to enjoy some of the fabulous drinks at POR Lounge is to hop a cab both ways. The bell hops (tip anticipated) at both hotels will call a cab forward for you and the fare should only be the minimum 'cause it is so close.

    I agree the boat/bus option could take an hour each way and hardly worth it. But if you are coming from a park or DTD to see Bob, that would eliminate on taxi ride. Enjoy the show, it is so much fun.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I would recommend driving. Old Key West is just down the road from Riverside. We have driven many times and no problem with parking. You can drive and park at any resort to have dinner or just look around. Keep your parking permit in your window and show the guard your room key. Bob plays Wed thru Sat at Riverside. Get there around 745 to get a seat usually very crowded show starts at 830. We go every time we are at Disney it is sooo much fun!!

    The drive would be very short...but not if you're going to drink. Unfortunately the alternatives would be to take bus to Downtown Disney, then a bua to Port Orleans or take a cab.
