5 women stayed in the princesses rooms. The princess rooms are ornate but I do not think they are worth the extra money. The bathroom that contains the toilette and bath tub is very small. The sink area has a lot of room. Flushing the toilette was super loud. I liked that the air conditioner had slots on it to... More

Loved our first ever stay at Disneyworld. This resort is set in beautiful location on the Sassagoula river and the accommodation set in Mansion Houses or more rustic Bayou properties. Rooms were just spacious enough for four people, though I would have liked some additional hanging space rather than just a three drawer unit. The beds were comfy. I also... More

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this resort. We opted for a "royal guest room" in the Magnolia Bend area, which is themed after Princess Tiana from the Princess and the Frog movie. The room is supposed to look like one that would be in a castle; the decorations are really charming without being over done. The entire Magnolia bend... More

The grounds are gorgeous, lush, and well kept, with much in the way of interesting flora and fauna - the lizards are adorable and were a great discussion piece for our kids. :) The riverfront is beautiful with the feature of the riverboat a nice addition to our trip. The pools are clean and well kept and absolutely fun. The... More

O.k., so we've been here a couple of times. People ask why we keep going to the same place over and over again. Well, I'll tell you. 1) It's beautiful!!!! So well kept. 2)In true Disney fashion they are Always making improvements. If something isn't working for families, they fix it. I don't just mean light bulbs I mean if... More

We are so glad we stayed in one of the Disney hotels. The staff along with the whole atmosphere was fantastic. The shuttle service to and from the parks was excellent. My only criticism would be that during mealtimes the queues can be a little bit long to get your food. After a couple of days a member of staff... More

This was our third time staying at Port Orleans, Riverside. The grounds are simply beautiful. The pools are relaxing and the cruise to Downtown Disney on the Sassagoula River is a nice way to avoid sitting in traffic. They need more boats to travel to DD - one for Riverside and one for French Quarter. We waited a while between... More

I've always wanted to stay here so spent the night before embarking on a cruise. My room was a good size & was ready early :) The pool with the waterslide was quite overcrowded, so took a quick dip & then strolled the property. It brought back memories of camping in Ft Wilderness as a child- very rustic & well... More

Disney World is the happiest place on earth and this hotel is part of it! Travelled here in 2013 and it did not disappoint this time around. There was no question of where we would stay because Port Orleans Riverside is perfect for us. We booked the Royal Guest rooms, Standard view. I called up Disney Reservations to ask for... More

We stayed here for six nights and loved the resort. The theming was immaculate and the scenery around the grounds was gorgeous. The tall magnolias and the river running though the center of the resort, along with the beautiful mansion buildings, really gave a feeling of being at a resort in Georgia or Tennessee. The main building was stunning and... More
