Porto to Frankfurt Airport options?

I have a dilemma, I am going to Porto for a concert(Primavera Sound) ends on the 9th of June. I HAVE to be at the Frankfurt Airport BY 9am June 11th? I am having issues with the website finding the best/fastest/easiest route. Any suggestions?
I have a Global 1st class pass and will be traveling with my daughter.
Thanks

    Hi Rob,

    A rail connection from Porto to Frankfurt Airport would take at least 25.5 hours in duration and involves at least 4 train changes en route; once in Coimbra, once in Hendaye, once in Paris, and then once in Karlsruhe. The portion of this route from Coimbra to Hendaye would be on an overnight train.

    The trains from Porto to Coimbra would require reservations, however, reservable trains operating within Portugal are not able to be reserved from anywhere outside of Portugal. For this train, you would purchase the reservations locally upon arrival.

    You would purchase the reservations for the rest of the connection by clicking on 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass' from the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. To do this, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment of the trip. Therefore, you would do one search to access the night train from Coimbra to Hendaye, another search for connecting trains from Hendaye to Paris the following morning, another search for connecting trains from Paris to Karlsruhe, and another search for connecting trains from Karlsruhe to Frankfurt Airport.

    The night train from Coimbra to Hendaye is only able to be reserved within 60 days of an intended date of departure, while the rest of the trains comprising of the connection from Hendaye to Frankfurt Airport can all be reserved within 90 days of an intended date of departure. The passholder rates on these trains can sell out very quickly, especially during the busy Summer travel season, so it is recommended that the reservations be purchased as soon as possible.

    For planning purposes, you can just view the schedules for the portion of this route we aren't able to reserve from Porto to Coimbra by entering the cities under 'Check Fares and Schedules' on the homepage of our website and clicking the option to 'Check Schedules'.
