We loved the water taxis too. They always came so quick in the mornings which is the only time I’d consider walking. I, too, considered them an extra ride. It is fun watching the boat captains.
At Royal Pacific, Hard Rock, and Portofino?
Our question is, why would you take a bus to CityWalk and how do guests at those resorts know about buses?
For various reasons such as the room might be closer to the bus stop than walking or mobility issues.
Royal Pacific I’d say take the boat is best as you get dropped off in the middle of city walk.
