A lesser-known launch takes Port Orleans resort guests to Downtown Disney ever 20 minutes before 7pm and every 10 minutes afterwards. Great for a romantic evening or a Girls' Night Out. The river ride is perfectly serene at night.
I love using these boats to get to the MK hotels. Much more fun and scenic than the buses, or even the monorails. Service is always personable.
The launches offer a nice ride across the lagoon between MK and the monorail resorts. Last time we stayed at the Contemporary, there were times when the launches actually got us back faster than if we had taken the monorail! Overall, a relaxing trip on the water and a good mode of transport to the MK or your monorail resort.
These boats are very relaxing!!! i really enjoy them. If you are not staying at a monorail resort, and have some time, here's a relaxing idea...go to the MK, take the monorail over to any of the monorail resorts and look a the shops, grab a drink and enjoy the sites (and dream of the day you can afford to say at a monorail resort)...then take one of these boats back to MK. all of this means an extra special, relaxing vacation!
IF YOU ARE NOT IN A HURRY THIS IS A NICE WAY TO GET TO MK. SINCE IT ONLY SERVES THE THREE ORIGINAL HOTELS AND THE WILDERNESS IT'S USUALLY NOT AS CROWED. BUT THE LIMITED BOATS MAY MAKE THE WAIT TIMES AT THE DOCK SEEM LONG.
