Love love love Port Orleans Riverside. We stayed in the royal guest rooms. Best Disney resort I've stayed at so far. I will definitely stay at this resort next year when we come back. Rooms nice and roomy, Great Disney service as always. Only complaint...need more shuttles. Buses very crowded.

It's like a mini holiday camp. The rooms are small for a family, but you don't spend long there anyway. The food is great although the portion sizes are way too big and you can share with others. Most US portions seem enough for 2 Brits. The hotel has a pool area with lifeguards and all sorts of different activities... More

What more could you ask for if you would like a beautiful place to stay in the park circuit. We met people who have been staying here for years and say they have no interest in going to another hotel because this place has everything you need right here. I agree! Kid friendly and perfect for every age group really.... More

Family of 4, two daughters 12 & 7, first time at Disney. Stayed in a Royal Guest room 4 nights. Decor was very cute. Both girls really got a kick out of it. The resort is HUGE. We were very close to a bridge to the main building, so we didn't have to walk far too far, but I could... More

We had 5 rooms at Disney's Port Orleans Riverside for 11 family members ages 20 months through 65 years for a week in June. It was wonderful!! The rooms were extraordinarily comfortable, we loved the Riverside food court and the pools. The transportation to the resorts was efficient and overall the experience was all we hoped it would be. Thank... More

I have stayed at this property three times now. All three were very pleasant. I requested a "preferred" room the second and third times. It is closer to dining and shopping. Will really save some shoe soles. The service at the inside lounge is terrible. But, the rest of the resort really makes up for it.

We stayed in a royal room in Oak Manor from June 9-16. Decor was beautiful and cleanliness was perfect. Our housekeeping staff brought us extra hangers within 10 minutes of requesting them and left us cute towel animals daily. This room was perfect for our two young girls. The resort itself is big but my husband and I liked putting... More

This was our 2nd stay at Riverside, things hadn't changed much in the 8 years between visits. Firstly like anywhere on Walt Disney World (WDW) cast members/staff are extremely helpful. However in the dining rooms they need to smile a little more, many long faces. The grounds of this resort are very lush and have a great relaxed southern style... More

We just did a hotel stay for the 2 nights we stayed here. The room was clean but we did have a light bulb burned out and the plug in was coming off the wall that was beside the bed. The cushion above the air condition had a large black stain on it. There was a curtain that separated the... More

We were so delighted with our stay here. Lovely homey decor of the main lobby and rocking chairs on the porch facing the river and docks. We found this very large resort to be a nice reprieve from the bustle of the parks with out being boring. Large path system to go around resort and along river, double bikes and... More
