I visited this hotel with a friend over the Memorial Day weekend to attend the coolest summer kickoff party. I had never stayed at this resort before but it had been recommended to me by several people. Because it was a short trip we didn't spend much time at the resort, but what we did see of it was beautiful.... More

Excellent place to stay from arrival to departure. Don't bother staying on off Disney hotels, Disney knows how to do it right. Clean, comfortable and beautiful. The pools were refreshing and clean. Great drinks at the bar near the pool on Ol' Man's Island. Very helpful and friendly staff. Will stay here again!

You would never know there are thousands of people at this resort, it is always quiet and peaceful with the heavily wooded and manicured grounds. Nice big pool with a waterslide for the kids and great restaurants with great entertainment. one of the few places in WDW you can put a family of 5 in a room and not have... More

We spent an adult only 5 nights at this wonderful resort. It is very quiet and relaxing. We were in building #18 with a view of the small pool. The on-line check in is the only way to go. We waited all of 2 minutes to walk up to the counter while the regular check-in was about 10 people deep.... More

We stayed for 5 days and received great service and had a clean and comfortable room. The beds were a little too soft but otherwise very comfortable. The pool and food were also great. Will definitely be back.

Port Orleans in Walt Disney World offers two areas: French Quarter and Riverside. Riverside itself has a few sections of its own: Magnolia Bend, Arcadian House and Alligator Bayou. Of the three, the latter is one that I would not suggest. In fact, I would recommend others, specifically, to not stay there. While there, we saw rats around the bridges... More

Selected this resort as needed 1 room that would accommodate party of 5 & the Alligator Bayou rooms fit the bill. We had submitted list of few requests w/orig reservations, as well as when we submitted on line check-in. Also followed up w/fax few days before arrival. Rec'd all requests which included connecting rooms, 2nd floor, proximity to 1 pool,... More

the room was clean but average. The way the resort was done was very cool. The boat to downtown Disney was great. I prefer the Saratoga springs but this price was nice and so was the staff. Bring your own beverages and snack as with any Disney resort they are expensive. Our room had a fridge so we filled it... More

This is our second time staying at the Port Orleans resorts and Riverside is definitely the nicer one. Great staff, nice amenities and love the boat rides to Downtown Disney. We will be back in a few years and look forward to staying another week.

We stayed here for 5 nights in May. I did the online check in prior to arriving but found that upon arrival, I had to repeat all the information I updated online so I found the online check in pointless as it didn't save us any time. The hotel property is large, charming and quite peaceful with swamps, rivers, paths... More
