There is definitely a difference between Disney's premier resorts and the next tier. We wanted to stay in the New Orleans themed resort so we did. But we were used to the perks and restaurants of the next level up. The Port Orleans restaurant was hugely disappointing to the kids. Oh well, live and learn. Back to the Yacht Club... More

It was my first trip to Disney, and I was expecting something different from one of their resort hotels. Other than the front desk, and the restaurant, the property and room had a Red Roof or LaQuinta feel. This hotel could use a facelift, inside and out. I would repaint and completely refurbish the rooms. They are very drab and... More

Just returned from a quick four-night stay at the Riverside. This was our third visit this year and we are still very pleased with the staff, accommodations and quirky layout. IF you use the signage, keeping on the correct path is fairly easy. Realize that the food court will be quite busy and hectic, and having a sense of humor... More

Port Orleans Riverside is really hyped up online and I went in with pretty high expectations. Our first three hours in Disney World were a nightmare after planning the trip for almost 4 months. When we arrived they tried to move our room after I had specifically booked a Royal Princess themed room for our first visit to DW with... More

This resort was a great choice for our anniversary. It has a very relaxing, laid-back feel. The Magnolia Bend mansions are beautiful, and the rooms, though on the small side (especially the bathroom), are well appointed. Be prepared to walk - the closest rooms are still a 5 minute hike to the main building, but the paths are very pretty.... More

We stayed at Riverside for an October 1-night, 2-day anniversary get-a-way. As background info, we have also stayed at the Wilderness Lodge, Yacht Club, All Star Sports, and Coronado Springs resorts. (Incidentally, I'm a previous cast member who worked at the Yacht & Beach Club in Guest Services and was also a Disney Rep for the Swan & Dolphin hotels.)... More

Of course Disney Hotel Rooms aren't worth the value, but what's included is. Pros: • Green Everywhere/ Really Pretty • Close to the Parks • Theming of Alligator Bayou Rooms was great! • Food Court had good options • Pool is one of my favorites of all the resort • Boat to Downtown Disney • Super Friendly Staff Cons: •...

The last time I was at this resort, and Disney World in general, was 19 years ago with my family when it was called "Dixie Landings." This time, it was just my husband and me, and I am happy to report that the quality, hospitality, and hotel grounds are as wonderful and beautiful as I remember them. It was surreal... More

Stayed here 5 nights in October 2014. It was terrific. Very clean, lots of beautiful paths to walk along, and a really nice, relaxing vibe. Our first breakfast landed on a Friday morning, and it was insanely crowded in the dining area. But after that, the cafeteria was convenient, and kept well-stocked and clean. There is a good variety of... More
