    I have heard that the boats to DTD are from both POFQ and POR. Which is correct or do they both have them?

    There are boats from and to both French Quarter and Riverside. The boats start running around 4:30 each afternoon until around 11:45 each night. While there are also buses from the resort to DD, be certain to take the boat at least once. It is a wonderful 20 minute ride! :smooth:

    When we were there in Feb. they were not running. But i have heard that they are running now? Does anyone know why they where closed? was it due to 9/11?

    It was all due to the scale back in operations after 9/11. There are things that have still not returned (early and late hours in the summer, EE, frequent e-ride nights, and so), but the return of the boats and the reopening of French Quarter early (wasn't supposed to open until November) are good signs that the crowds are indeed returning!
