1. (French Quarter) “Blues and Jazz” Platforms (located right outside the main Port Orleans Square building
2. South Depot (Main dept located on the right as you exit the Sassagoula Steamboat Company main building, just outside the rear exit of Fulton’s General Store.) "Blue Bayou" Platform: Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Downtown Disney and "River Delta" Platform: Magic Kingdom and Disney Hollywood Studios.
3. West Depot, serving Alligator Bayou buildings in the areas 24-26 and 28-35.
4. North Depot, serving Alligator Bayou buildings 36-39 and also Acadian House.
5. East Depot,located behind Magnolia Terrace and also serves the garden-facing rooms of Oak Manor.
Boats This cruise runs approximately every 20 minutes and takes about half an hour. This water taxi also runs between Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter.

  • Transportation Start Times :
    • Buses to the Magic Kingdom generally start running at 6:30; to the other parks, 7 AM. Information provided by a Disney bus driver who posts on DIS Transportation Board.
    • Disney does not strand Guests in/at any park. Transportation will run until all Guests exit. Note that this does not mean you can linger in, say, the garden area at the United Kingdom pavilion. At/after a certain time, Cast Members will cordially urge you toward the exits.
  • Time between transportation pick ups:
    • Buses about every 20 minutes (average wait would be 10 min)
    • Monorails about every 5 min to the Magic Kingdom generally start running at 6:30; to the other parks, 7 AM. Information provided by a Disney bus driver who posts on DIS Transportation Board.
    • For the purposes of this Itinerary I am using 15 minutes for bus & boats, 5 min for monorails, 20 minutes for boats.
