I recently stayed here with husband and 6 year old daughter for 7 nights. Check in was quick, lobby was attractive and staff friendly and helpful, and we were in our room quickly...we were in building 34 in the alligator bayou. This was a solid 10 minute walk back and forth to main reception building, not a problem for us... More

My family of four stayed here for a week and over the Princess Half Marathon Weekend and enjoyed every minute of it. We had a princess room with two queen beds with headboards that lit up with fireworks. My seven and ten year-old daughters thought those were pretty cool. The two sinks for getting ready in the mornings were really... More

We stayed in Magnolia Bends, which I requested, and it was just lovely! This is a big resort, so we did quite a bit of walking, but, everything was so nice that it was enjoyable for us. Taking the ferry over to French Quarter (for beignets!) and DownTown was nice.The pool was fun. The s'mores thing for kids was neat,... More

Stayed here for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. You can't beat the friendliness of all of the Disney employees -- it was my sister's first stay and she loved how everyone wished her "a magical day." We had some serious plumbing issues in our room, but they were taken care of. The food court was fine (prices what you... More

Loved this resort for it;s location, friendly and helpful staff, facilities and surroundings. Really beautiful to walk around, rooms also really nice at the alligator bayou; we stayed in lodge 37. Would definitely return there. Boats and buses were regular and easy to use with six of us including toddler. The food court did get busy early morning and around... More

We weren't sure what to expect after reading some other reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. This is our third trip to WDW. 10 years ago we stayed at PO-French Quarter and thought is was good. 8 years ago we stayed off property, and said we would not do that again. We wanted to try something different so went with... More

We arrived at the hotel and had a seamless check in. The staff was polite and helpful and had us on our way to our room quickly. We stayed in the Royal room, which was cute and kitschy. The room itself was clean and the adorable iconic towels in the form of Mickey were a nice touch. The one issue... More

I will start with the positive (the things that move this rating up to average)....the staff was super friendly and helpful - from check in, to quick dine employees, to housekeeping. The pool staff worked hard to entertain the children the lifeguards were super vigilant. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and calming. On to the food. We only ate at... More

I decided to spend my birthday at Disney and booked a last minute stay at Port Orlean Riverside in a preferred room. We chose to pay a little more for accommodations so that we would be close to the main pool, laundry room, lobby, bus stop and most importantly the restaurant. We were lucky enough to be in the building... More

I stayed here with my Family and we loved it! From the pool to just waking around the resort looking at the cool wild life, even the boat rides were fun! Everyone there was really nice, and treated us great! We will definitely come back again! A no doubt 5 stars!
