Having spent our previous two WDW holidays at Animal Kingdom Lodge, we decided after some research to go for something a bit different. We would not have picked a more different hotel than Port Orleans Riverside. We spent two weeks in a Royal Guest Room - aka as the Princess Rooms. I expected quite a lot about the resort to... More

We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside on out last visit to Disney World (early December 2014 - slow time for WDW)(let me say this - the Christmas decorations were very nice. Every where you went Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. And every hotel and park has Christmas decorations. So of course that adds to the overall visual effect)I booked two connecting Royal... More

This was a very beautiful place to stay. We had a garden view room. They really keep this resort well maintained. We had a princess room. The headboard lights up with fireworks, when you push button on side. We were lucky enough to have a room close to the pools and dining. I will stay here again in the future.

We loved Port Orleans Riverside! We had the best time! We stayed at Caribbean Beach three years ago which was nice but we didn't care for the bus sevice and all of the stops. One thing that sets Port Orleans above is the riverside taxi to Downtown Disney which was so much fun and made our stay that much better.... More

We stayed here for 6 days at the end of August. While it was nice and the CM's were very accommodating (we had an issue with the first room we got) it didn't have that same Disney "magic" that we've felt in other resorts. We had a room in the Alligator Bayou section, which we found to be a big... More

Bed was like sleeping on a box spring ... no help or rolling luggage carts and it was a long way for two partially handicapped people to carry luggage ... and be careful plugging things in around those beds. They are resin made to look like wood but they are spiked and I cut my hand on one not knowing.... More

We had not stayed in this hotel in a very long time, and I had forgotten how pretty the grounds are. We stayed in the plantation section. I thought the room was a little dirty. It was fine for two adults, but if I would have had small children with me, I would have been concerned. To be specific, in... More

I LOVED our stay at Port Orleans Riverside. The theme was excellent. The property was beautiful. There was plenty to see and do at the resort itself. I liked that it was more spread out allowing for a quieter experience. We lucked out with an excellent location in Magnolia Bend -- close to a bus stop not many people used... More

My family and I stayed at the Port Orleans's Riverside in 2012 with 5 people. We went back this year for two years with 5 people again. Since 2012, the rooms have undergone a renovation. It is even more comfortable for a family of 5. After out 2nd night, we learned that the next day was suppose to be a... More

I booked the Royal suite for my daughter's 10th birthday and she absolutely adored it. I had asked them to put a sign in the room for her birthday, which they told me they would do, but sadly when we arrived there was nothing. The room however, made up for this oversight. The headboards had LED lights that made it... More
