The room was lovely, nicely decorated (we chose the royal princess room), with everything in very good condition. However, there was a small used towel from the previous occupant in the bathtub and a long hair in the tub that did not belong to one of us. There was a large yellow stain (looked like the sheet had been washed,... More

There were nice pictures on the walls and the resort was huge. The lines for pizza were very long at the café, but almost everything else was superb. Port Orleans is not too far away from the other parts of the Disney World. I liked having the bus stops close to the hotel rooms. Overall, I thought Port Orleans resort... More

This hotel didn't ruin my trip. We did enjoy our stay. I didn't have high expectations, but they didn't deliver on what I wanted in a Disney resort. This was our base of operations for our 2nd trip to Disney World. Our 1st choice for accommodations (Off property see my other reviews) was booked up so we decided to try... More

The customer service at this place is phenomenal. We had some issues with another resort that we were staying at in WDW and were transferred to PORS in the middle of our trip. We had stayed there before and loved it. The staff there are so friendly and they went out of their way to make up for the poor... More

We loved Port Orleans Riverside! We had booked a preferred room, but when discounts were offered we had to change our room type to river view in order to take advantage of the discount. We were extremely pleased to have a river view room in alligator bayou, building 27. We were in a corner room on the 2nd floor. It... More

This was our third time staying here and we really enjoy this resort! The staff is very friendly and we love the grounds and easy access to Downtown Disney. The rooms are always clean and kept up to date. The bar/restaurant and resort shop are all great! Looking forward to returning.

This was our first trip to Disney World, so we didn’t really know what to expect. We picked up our rental car from the Orlando International Airport and drove to our resort. Use your GPS, as it will help you to maneuver through all the little turns that you have to make to find your way to the resort. Since... More

This is a very nice hotel in the heart of the Disney World resort. The surroundings are quiet, attractive, and well-maintained. The rooms are large and included a pullout bed and a refrigerator. There is a large swimming park called 'Ol Man Island' and plenty of activities. Also there is a store and a restaurant on-site. There are a few... More

We've only stayed at this resort once, and were satisfied with our stay. This resort is a very large one, and is usually the most expensive of the Moderates (POFQ is about the same price too). The transportation is fast and is usually NOT linked to Disney's Port Orleans-French Quarter. The rooms were bigger than expected with one bathroom and... More

Just came back from our Spring Break family trip. The resort is huge. We were in Building 34 of the Alligator Bayou section and although I had hoped to get a room in Magnolia Bend, I was satisfied with our room and we were very close to West depot bus stop. Room was very clean, beds were comfortable, and housekeeping... More
