Disney Springs Area Boats Reopen After Lengthy Closure


Great news for Disney Springs visitors! The Sassagoula River Cruise boat transportation is operational once again, after being shut down since the end of April due to low water levels. Guests staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, Disney’s Old Key West Resort, and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort can now enjoy the convenient and scenic water taxi service between their resorts and Disney Springs.

The water taxis were out of service for a month and a half, during which bus transportation was provided. However, with water levels restored, the boats are back in action, offering a delightful way to travel. Due to the nightly “Disney Dreams That Soar” drone show at 9 p.m. and 10:45 p.m., the last boat departs Disney Springs at 8 p.m. For guests staying out later, bus service will be available after 8 p.m.
