This resort has always been our "go to" for a moderate property at WDW. We hadn't stayed here in several years and were happy to find out that things were just as pleasant as ever. I had booked 3 rooms and our requests for location and Pack & Plays were honored. We were surprised with no wait on check-in and... More

Stayed at Parterre Place in one of the Royal Rooms 12/8 to 12/13/14. Resort is large and well maintained.. We have stayed at value and moderate resorts when the kids were little. Now we tend to stay at Deluxes. For a quick trip we decided to try a moderate we had not stayed in before. It was a good choice.... More

We went in the beginning of Dec. 2014. We loved this resort. This was our first time to Disney with our 2 girls and we had a blast. The first thing they noticed was the head boards of the beds. You press a button and you see a fireworks show. Loved it. The rooms were nice and clean. The cute... More

Staying here 4 nights with our 2 girls aged 4 & 2 and only arrived yesterday but feel compelled to warn others. As soon as we arrived my wife noticed that the garbage cans were full. I called the front desk and they had someone come right away and empty them. We then went out to explore and have dinner... More

Hotel grounds are well maintained and it has a very spread out layout. We asked for a preferresd location but we were still about a 5 minute walk from the main building and put on a 2nd floor room when we requested first floor room. Surprisely, no one asked to help us with our bags when checking in even when... More

Every time my family and I visit Disney World, we do not even hesitate to book our stay at Port Orleans Riverside. The rooms are a perfect size for a family of 4 and seem to be well maintained! The resort or resort pools are never too noisy or overcrowded. Transportation is always great. I do not remember a time... More

My friend and I needed a place to stay for a couple of nights and the Royal Rooms were the best deal we could get at the time. I'm glad we stayed here once just to try it. If you have a princess or think you are a princess then this is the place for you. The whole room is... More

Just returned from Port Orleans, Riverside where we stayed from December 16-21, 2014. We loved the resort. It is huge; the grounds are quite vast. We had a great, central location in Magnolia Terrace; but, I could see where some families with small children could have quite a hike to the food court from some of the outlying rooms. The... More

Hotel grounds are clean and well maintained. Staff is very friendly. Food services vary. We ate at the riverside mill food court twice. It was okay and portions were adequate. We should have tried Boatwrights. Drinks in the bar were very expensive. The rooms are on the small side and need updating. The beds are horrendous. Feel like they've been... More

Stayed in December 2014 in the Royal Guest Rooms. Staff was extremely friendly... Room was ready at 10am. Loved the monitors at the bus depot with wait times. Big campus like atmosphere, but you learn your way around!! Would definitely stay here again!
