This was our first time at this property. We were assigned to Alligator Bayou Section in Building 16. I would recommend this area as it is close to the lobby, food court and Ol' Man River (the main pool). The standard room was average and had a pocket door into the bathroom. The mini fridge was nice and there was... More

I have stayed here 3 times in last 7 years, all amazing stays. We are returning again next year. Just love everything about Disney is so magical, my family always stay for 3 weeks and never get bored. Can't see why anyone can write a bad review, but hey there are many picky people about.

My family and I stayed at Port Orleans Riverside and it was one of the best experiences of our lives. The grounds are beautiful and clean just as you would expect from WDW. The restaurants were great. The water taxi to Downtown Disney is incredibly convenient. The resort is ideally located on the WDW bus route that goes to the... More

Planning a trip to Disney? Well I would recommend staying at a Disney Resort for several perks. But one resort i recommend staying at is Port Orleans Riverside! Very nice, clean, and comfortable with that southern, New Orleans feel. One part is the plantation style buildings. the other halfis the bayou style. It offers a general store, the Roost (... More

The Riverside and the French Quarter area are awesome. The two go hand in hand. If you have seen the Disney princes frog then you know you need "some man cathin' beignets !" And you get them at the float works food court in the French Quarter! The food is traditional new Orleans style food with po boys and all.... More

I recently attended a conference on the Walt Disney World property and stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside resort for 5 days. When I arrived at the entrance via taxi, I was dropped off with my luggage. No one came to greet me or to offer assistance with my luggage, which is even more strange since I had a knee... More

Excellent hotel for families! Beautiful gardens. I stayed at "Alligator Bayou" and i loved my "Princess and the frog" themed room. Very comfortable rooms. (Nice bed!!) Excellent restaurants, food for every taste! (Loved the "create you own pasta") Many pools around the whole hotel. Liked the bicycles for four! We enjoyed going to Downtown Disney by the boat. I want... More

We recently visited Disney World with our two young daughters and stayed in one of the Royal Princess suites. We really enjoyed our time at the resort and the themed Princess room was a huge hit for our daughters. The pool area at the resort was also very nice and large. Two items, however, keep me from making the review... More

We are disney annual pass holders and have stayed at a number of hotels both on and off-site. This has to be one of the worst. The hotel is huge, and confusing, with all room entrances being from the outside. Signs are sometimes wrong throughout the property and are hard to read to begin with, good luck finding your room....
