Is this Port Orleans Riverside, or Port Orleans French Quarter? And where exactly is the Outer Lane (especially if it is Riverside, as I've never been there before.)

Also, if we miss the bus going back, will there be cabs somewhere to get back? (I'm sure Ray is sick of me asking this question, lol.) I wouldn't mind getting stranded at a Disney park, but don't really care to get stranded at Universal.
I should have caught that - sorry. We will contact the bus company and let you know which of the Port Orlean Resorts they plan on stopping at. We may not hear from them until Monday so you and your Mom hang in there

The Outer Lane usually refers to the driving pathway furthest from the front door at any resort. This is the lane usually reserved for buses that are not WDW transportation. I say 'usually' because I know there are exceptions to this and I'm sure someone will point them out to me

So - hang tight - we will get the info on which Port Orleans resort it will be. I will post that info here, update the first post and email everyone affected.

As far as taxi's after the resort the short answer is yes. You may have to get to one of the hotel's or the valet area to get a taxi but USO internal transportation (i.e. water taxis) will be running well after our event and City Walk is still open until about 2 AM I believe that night so you won't have an issue getting to where the taxis will be.

OH - and I forgot to mention that the buses will have a big DISApalooza Sign in their window/windsheild so there isn't a chance you might accidentally get on the wrong bus.

Hi Halloweenqueen, I'm coming from Toronto, Canada! I'm flying in on my own on Dec. 8 and staying at Coronado Springs but meeting up with old friends on Friday and Saturday who I'm going to the party with. I can't wait!

p.s. was happy to read that credentials sent to Canada will also be priority...lets just hope they don't get held up at the border to be checked! I ordered something from Disneyland that got held up at the border and checked and I ended up being charged extra when it got delivered! Not sure why they thought something dangerous would be coming from the Disney mail order department lol.

KSWM30b,

If pickup is at Riverside, this aerial photo shows the front of the POR lobby where buses typically pick up passengers. There is even a bus in the outer lane. If I'm wrong, I hope John will correct me.
And our credentials arrived in today mail. I'm jumping for joy.

I received my Mom and Sister's credentials today. They must be sending them out by room reservation. Hopefully I'll get my package on Friday.
