4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I've stayed at several Disney Moderate and Deluxe resorts and found this one to be the most peaceful. It was definitely one of the smallest which had the least amount of walking to the lobby and shuttles. A plus after a long day at the park and for running to refill your mugs. The lifeguards are very attentive and saved... More

We arrived at our budget Disney hotel, and were offered an upgrade to Riverside. When we arrived at this hotel and were excited at how nice it looked inside. They a had refreshing lemon water dispenser and a TV playing a kids movie in the lobby. Very friendly staff as you would expect from Disney. We were told our room... More

This review may be most helpful to families with young children. Ours were almost 4 and 6 during our visit. I debated whether we should book POR or a deluxe. The tanking Canadian dollar helped my decision, but after our visit, I'm still unsure if it was the best decision because there are many goods and bads from our visit.... More

We really enjoyed staying here as it was our first trip to Disney, food was good and staff was friendly. We were a little disappointed the main pool was closed for renovations and were not notified until a month before our stay, other than that it was great!

We had another great visit to this hotel for the second time in 3 months and look forward to a return stay. The staff is so friendly and meet all your needs. Check in was painless both times. The whole property layout is very efficient and works so well. Consumers can always count on Disney to do everything first class!!!

If this hotel wasn't on Disney property it definitely would not have been worth the money we spent. While I agree that the grounds are more interesting than your typical Disney "value" property, the rooms were really no better. For over 200.00 a nite I do not expect to have awful wi-fi reception, sketchy direct tv service, no microwave oven,... More

Our favorite moderate in Disney. Great location near the parks and a gentle boat ride to Disney Springs. Beautiful grounds and nice rooms. Stay in Alligator Bayou if you can, although the other areas are very nice. By all means catch Yehaw Bob Jackson at the lounge. He's the hardest working man in show business. Get there early.

We have stayed at WDW resorts for our last 6 trips to WDW, These include, the Cabins at Fort Wilderness, Wilderness Lodge, Saratoga Springs, and Coronado. By far and away, our favorite is Port Orleans Riverside. The décor and landscaping is fantastic. The food court offers a wide variety of choices and has plenty of seating. While all WDW resorts...

This was our first stay at this resort and will not be our last. The room was spacious enough for 3 adults. Double sinks was a nice feature. A pull down bed was a great help for the person in our party who has a bad back - it provided strong support. The food court was very busy in the... More

It was my husband and 7 year old daughters first trip to Disney. We had a Royal Guest room close to the lobby and food court. The room was clean and had ample amenities for us. We had fun searching for hidden Mickeys. We did online check in and used our magic bands to enter the room. The hotel grounds... More
