We travelled to WDW during the week between Christmas & New Year's. It was very busy. Our room was downright filthy!!!!!!! We went to the front desk after our first night---we'd had a late check-in---to talk to the manager, who was condescending. That attitude immediately changed when we showed her the photos we'd taken of the filth in our room.... More

Stayed here for five nights in January which is supposed to be low season at Disney. Resort buses and counter service food area were very crowded at peak times. We booked a river view room (so we wouldn't be too far from the center of the resort) and were assigned a room in Alligator Bayou. Room was average and no... More

As usual, Disney does up its hotel for Port Orleans Riverside in beautiful classy style. Who else would install a fireworks button on the headboard of the beds? The grounds were lovely, and the bus depot was very convenient. Their food court had the BEST cheese danish I have ever eaten, and Boatwright's Restaurant is wonderful. The down side is... More

My wife booked us in the Port Orleans Riverside property for our Disney trip this year, and I can honestly say I am very pleased with the choice. The property as a whole as a nice laid back feel, and the room was comfortable and clean. Despite some reviews of being far from the lobby and or the busses I... More

We paid for a "preferred room" and requested building 14 (closest to the cafeteria). We traveled with other family members and needed 3 rooms next to each other. They met all of of our requests. It was a nice quiet resort. Food at cafeteria was good, not great. Kids enjoyed the main pool along with the activities, and a quiet... More

Took the family (husband and wife - mid 30's, and 2 children - boys ages 7 and 5) to Disney October 16 - 23, 2014. We wanted to stay on the property and chose Port Orleans - Riverside as it was a middle of the road hotel, in terms of price. When we booked, we ended up upgrading to a... More

Let's not compare apples to oranges- this is a moderate resort so you have to be prepared for a large property and fewer amenities than the Grand Floridian. That sad, it is much more quaint and accessible than other moderate resorts I have stayed at WDW. The property is beautiful and it's so fun for the kids to ride the... More

I am not a picky traveler at all. This is the letter I sent to the Port Orleans Riverside about our stay in May 2014. We enjoyed visiting the Disney theme parks, however we were disappointed in our stay at the resort. We had paid extra for a "preferred room" under the advise that these rooms were easier to access,... More

This is a large resort, but the walk from the room to the main building didn't bother us. The landscaping is beautiful and the place seems very peaceful. The pools are very nice. Room is on the small side and pretty basic for the price. Food at the food court is overpriced and mediocre. You are paying for being at... More

Was upset when we got there after a long day of travel to find out our room was not ready. The room is suppose to be ready at 3 p.m. but the customer service rep said that they didn't have to "officially" have the room ready until 5 p.m. So we dragged all of our lugguage to the buffet diner....
