Port Orleans is of Disney's moderate resorts. It is by far one of the best resorts owned by Disney. The ground are absolutely beautiful! We stayed in one of the Royal Guest rooms With a Garden View. It was beautifully decorated with Disney touches...was it worth the money....no. The room was no bigger than the normal rooms so for the... More

Port Orleans Riverside is a great Disney Resort conveniently located close to all parks and Disney Springs. My only complaint is the Disney bus system. If you stay at Riverside, many times you risk the bus to the parks being full by the time it gets to you. The rooms are spacious and many great resort amenities to enjoy.

Our 3rd trip to Disney. We wanted to try sometime different. The property is very beautiful. Very quiet and clean. The grandkids loved the Royal Guest Room. The pool was right outside our door so the kids loved that too. Just a very large property so it was a long wait for the buses and they were always full. One... More

This is our 47th stay at a Disney resort and we have stayed at better. No clocks in the room or at the pool. Room floors are filthy to say the least. Brand new footies were black just walking around the room carpet and floor. Bus service is deplorable, 4 stops on Riverside plus occasionally French Quarter. Worse bus service... More

Our room was so comfy and cozy and clean. The property is just lovely. Very clean and very quiet. Love the dining hall- food was very good. The large pool was very nice and my daughter enjoyed the water slide.

I arrived early and had used the online check in system - it seemed to know when I hit the ground as I received a text that my room was not quite ready - well it wouldn't be ready for a long time. Transport worked as advertised then I went about busying myself until the 3 PM check in time.... More

We love Port Orleans Riverside, this year was our first year not in the mansions. We have a family of 5 so we stayed in the Alligator Bayou rooms. It was way far from front entrance, but so glad we were right beside the west depot for the buses. It was literally a 1 1/2 walk from our room. That... More

We had a Royal Guest room and loved it! The room was amazing! The room was very clean and spacious. All the details in the room were so fun and made our stay even more "Magical". The whole resort was lovely and we can't wait to return and stay here again!

We stayed from September 4th through the 9th. The resort itself is beautiful in every way except for the room we stayed in! Our room was located in the Alligator Bayou area building 35. It was not ready when promised and when we did get our room it was not as clean as it should've been. The carpet was dirty... More
