A great moderate resort, wonderful staff! Would stay again in a heartbeat! It was the most peaceful Disney hotel we've ever stayed at. Our room was so quiet, got a great night sleep. We had the royal room, fun for our 1st stay by would most likely get a regular room next time. Movies under the stars, pools, carriages and... More

These cabins are great! The updates are impressive, clean and very nicely done. The cabins have a play area for kids, BBQ, and they are dog friendly! Would recommend for stay and will return again! Tv, microwave , refrigerator, coffee pot. The owner thinks of everything! Even leaves a garbage bag for your dirty clothes! This would be a great... More

We've stayed at this resort numerous times over the years and have always had a great experience. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are comfortable and quiet. The best part is the curtain you can use to divide the bathroom area from the rest of the room, especially if you have kids who are still sleeping. Everything was... More

Port Orleans Riverside is a beautiful Disney property. We have stayed at several other Disney resorts (Boardwalk, Beach Club, Animal Kingdom, Coronado Springs and Wilderness Lodge) and have spent time at several others, including most other Deluxe resorts and Carribbean Beach. Although we found the staff slightly less enthusiastic at Riverside, in all other ways it ended up being one... More

The Port Orleans Resort Riverside is a nice resort; however we were not too impressed with the royal guest rooms for the price. We enjoyed the French Quarter side of the resort much more due to its smaller proximity and pool. Riverside has a great food court with various options to choose from, and it's a joy to watch the...

Stayed at the Riverside over Easter, which coincided with Spring break. As a result the resort and all the parks were incredibly busy. As a family of four we found the hotel to be everything we needed for a family holiday. The grounds were beautiful, the boat to Downtown Disney was a relaxing and stress free way to visit this...

The check in was slow. The guard at the gate sent us to the wrong Hotel. It took staff there awhile to stop telling me I had no reservation and actually look at my printed copy and send us to the correct hotel. Once there, we waited for a room. The "Magic Bands" that are now standard at WDW were... More

I am very critical of hotels. But at the same time I am not hard to please when basic things are as they should be. There are plenty of things right here, but so many other things that I had a problem with. Luggage: I used Magical Express and I would be hard pressed to use it again. I was... More

This Disney resort was a dream come true for us. Although our vacation was in July, our comfortable room was heavenly. We had a wonderful corner room on the ground floor. Corner rooms are spacious and I highly recommend asking for one. The room came with a trundle bed which was perfect for my then 4 year-old son. A heated... More

The theming makes this more bayou and not fancy at all. The rooms are fairly small and nothing better than your average holiday inn just with Disney level theming. There are plenty of rooms with room for a family of five with a Murphy bed which is a plus. The main draw backs are that the quick service dining is... More
