    Hi! I was wondering if its possible to walk from port Orleans to downtown disney? I know that there is a ferry service, but I was wondering if maybe there was a walking trail or something!

    No. It is way too far. You can walk from Port Orleans, Riverside to Port Orleans French Quarter, and that is a bit of a hike. However, my grandson and I made the walk, so that he would swim in the French Quarter Pool, with the dragon slide.

    People just don't realize how big WDW really is, until they visit. You are definitely at the mercy of their transportation system, unless of course you drive your own car, and/or rent a car.

    Oh okay!! Thank you!! It's been stormy here so we had hoped there was an alternate transportation option other than the boat as even if there is no rain, the boats don't run in lightening storms

    Yeah.... No you can't. It's too far. No walking trail. Either take the bus or the water taxi.

    FYI, the water taxi will still run when it's raining but yes, if there is lightning within a 5 mile radius, it'll get shut down and the bus will be your only option (or a taxi if you want to spring for it).

    Honestly I wouldn't bother walking resort to resort or resort to park. It's so massive it's literally ridiculous. I'm a bit of a hiker and I bet you it would take you a few hours to pull off walking anywhere, even if you are ambitious, I wouldn't even feel safe. The roads are highways and the walking trails are full of all kinds of wild southern animals and reptiles that I personally am not accustomed to or feel safe being around.
