    Staying at POFQ in September 2014. Does the boat that takes you ro Downtown Disney dock at the Marketplace or the West Side? We Have reservations at RainForest Cafe and trying to plan on how long it will take us to arrive. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Nancy!

    Currently, the ferry dock for Downtown Disney Marketplace is closed.  It is anticipated to open later this year.  You can still take the water taxi from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter to Downtown Disney though!  You'll be dropped off at the Pleasure Island dock instead.  It'll mean a slightly longer walk for you, so I'd factor in some extra time.  Also, make sure to ask at check-in if the Marketplace dock is available, it just might be in time for your vacation!

    The Sassagoula Water Taxis are one of our favorite things about the resort, and our kids always request that we 'take the boat' everywhere!  It's truly a relaxing time for everyone!

    I always plan an hour to an hour-and-a-half for travel time when using Disney Transportation.  I hope this helps you plan out your schedule.

    Have a magical vacation, and have a Beignet for me!
