My husband and I stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort last week and loved mostly everything about the resort. I gave it an average rating because we had a couple of issues that affected our stay. The first night we checked in, we didn't go to bed until midnight and that's when we realized our mattress was broken (springs... More

We stayed at Fort Wilderness cabins 2 years ago and had an awesome time. Family decided they wanted a hotel this time with better access to a pool. When I booked the reservation, I requested close to a bus stop because husband had had a stroke, didn't want a scooter (we rested a lot at parks). We also requested pool... More

So many positives to list. Only stayed one night but wow, well done Disney. 1 adult and two children under 8. Did online check-in and at 1:47pm I did get an email and text saying my room was NOT ready. I did NOT get a second alert that the room was ready so we did have to park, get kids... More

Preferred room was great compact but had the added bonus of the pull down bed and very near to the restaurant. Disney dining plan worth having as the food was cooked fresh, plenty of it, couldn't fault it.

The Port Orleans resorts take a back seat to none. The walking paths are quite lovely, as they wind along the river.They also connect the 2 resorts. About a 15 minute walk at a moderate pace. Nice walk with a great view. The boats that run to and from Disney Springs make for a nice option. Rooms, while not huge,... More

The check in experience was not at all like I remembered. The front desk clerk was missing the typical Disney enthusiasm. I have gotten a more cheerful welcome when checking into a hospital. In spite of this, I still had high hopes for our accomodations, as we had chosen one of the newly remodeled Royal rooms. When I stayed at... More

I recently went for a Jambery Nail Wrap conference in Orlando and we took our grandchildren. 4 days later their parents came in and we had a Disney adventure. I like this property. It had everything we needed for the stay, pools which were kept clean, clean rooms (although the bathroom shower area is a little small), and we were... More

The property is well kept and the rooms are thematic, of course. Check-in was quick, friendly, and efficient. The price is the only thing preventing a four star rating; it's pricey. To be fair, however, it is Disney which is synonymous with expensive. If you understand that going in, the sticker shock is a little less bothersome. Transportation to and... More
