We had previously stayed in the French quarter section of this large resort but wanted to try out riverside. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. This resort is very large so if walking is an issue then make sure you request first floor, near food, near bus stops, near pool ect. We found our location request was accommodated for two... More

We are frequent Orlando travelers and this was our firs stay at the Port Orleans Riverside. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Check in was fast and easy. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived early, but they texted us our room number when it was, and when we left the park, we went straight to the room. The guest... More

This is our favourite disney moderate resort. It is a fairly big resort but you are never more than a 5 minute walk or so from the main buildings. The food court offers a great selection including build your own salads and an egg white power omelette for breakfast so not just burgers and nuggets! The theming of the resort... More

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed everything about this resort. We were warmly greeted from the moment we pulled in. Magicbands were amazing! Everyone spoke to us by name, personalizing the Disney touch even more. The hotel itself is just as descriptions state; a moderately priced place on-property with Disney benefits and all the little extras, like rolled towels... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times. Lovely grounds and great ambiance. Nice food court and lobby. Rooms are comfortable. Depending on location it can be a bit of a walk to main building and food court. Many activities for children

What you get with a Disney hotel is a really good quality situation that would probably merit a 4 star review if it was a standard experience but with all the glee and wonderment that Disney brings added in Tue form of theming, the little touches like your towels being folded into Mickey shapes, and amazingly friendly and helpful staff....

Visited august 2014 - wonderful friendly efficient staff - everywhere very clean- food could be better at breakfast but evening meal in Boatwrights excellent - evening entertainment (yehaa Bob ) superb. Rooms may need refurbishing in certain areas but I am now being picky. Would I stay here again Yes anytime. Conveniently positioned for Downtown Disney and all Parks.

We stayed from September 2-9. Other than hurricane season (2-3 hours of rain each afternoon), it was a perfect stay. We planned the vacation (2 adults) for the first week of school to avoid all of the kids and favorable rates and opportunity to restaurant reservations. It ended up working out really well. The resort was perfect for us. We... More

Here's the thing...I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I think Disney does an amazing job with recreation and design and activities and even transportation at their facilities. However, I went into this experience having already done some research on the hotel layout. Let me tell you this...there is a LOT of walking to be done. If your family... More
