The hotel / resort had a great pool (I wish we would have had more time to chill at the pool) and the food at the restaurants was really very, very good. The rooms were a good size and having bus service to all the parks was awesome. We really enjoyed our trip. They had activities for the kids including... More

We spent all day at the Magic Kingdom and took advantage of the online check-in. I checked-in several days in advance by using the Disney Experience app. They texted my room number to me while I was at Disney. You can go straight to your room without visiting the front desk; which was perfect since we didn't get in until... More

Everything about this resort was what you would expect from Disney. The on site dining was great. It had casual and fine dining with a lounge for adults. Lots of activities for the kids. The kids loved it!!

This is a lovely hotel, we enjoyed the pools and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The property is quite large and upon checking in the staff member that gave us directions sent us the wrong way, but on the bright side we had a very nice walk and saw a lot of the property we probably wouldn't have. The... More

We stayed at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside in December 2014. We were in Room 8010 which is in Magnolia Bend - Acadian House. Our room was a relatively short walk to the main pool (which is heated in winter) and the restaurants. There is also a quiet pool nearby and the laundry for this section of rooms is... More

When my boyfriend told me he had booked a holiday to Disney I must say I was a bit confused. As we are both over over teens (late 20's) with no children. However we had the BEST holiday. The hotel was amazingly clean. Staff were friendly and food was good. Staying on site have us access to the park later... More

This was our first trip to Disney and its resorts. I don't regret choosing Port Orleans Riverside. So many activities at the resort itself for the kids and family. Our room was in the alligator bayou, tucked at the back of the property so our room faced the trees. We had a small pool at our section of housing, as... More

This was our second trip to Disney, and we decided to not rent a house but stay closer to the parks to save money in parking. My wife found this hotel which is so close to Downtown Disney. We chose the Alligator Bayou section, which some of our friends had said that they have stayed at all of the sections... More

The room was so delightfully decorated! The fireworks in the headboards were really great for the kids young and old. The location to the Main Lobby, resturants, and transportation very convient. The only complaint was about the beds. Seemed very noisy and not that comfortable. Had better beds in more economical establishments. Loved the location, and grounds were immaculate!

I stayed here with my daughter for a long weekend girls getaway trip. Our room in the Magnolia building was clean and comfortable. The resort is huge, so be prepared to do a lot of walking. The pool area was fun, lots of kids and there is a large gift shop also with souvenirs, snacks and even wine. We liked... More
