We are huge Disney fans. We have stayed at every moderate resort Disney has to offer. Our favorite is Port Orleans Riverside. It doesn't matter if it is peak season Port Orleans never seems to feel as if it's overcrowded. Are the buses full? Yes but it never feels as if there are too many people. It is the perfect... More

This was the first time we stayed at this resort in Disney. In our prior visits we stayed at the cabins at Fort Wilderness, although we still love staying at the cabins, this was a great alternative. We stayed in one of the royal rooms and it had all of the amenities of a basic hotel room. Which is all... More

We went July12-18 2016. Stayed in room 2729 in alligator bayou. Clean room adequate space. There were 5 of us and the room suited us quite well. Grounds are well kept. Pool bar is awesome. The 2 kids enjoyed the pools. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed two nights here, and enjoyed this mid range hotel very much. Outstanding pool, and sprawling property that is typical for the mid-range hotels at Disney. This is the third one we've stayed at, and although they all follow the same formula - all the rooms and buildings are laid out similarly, the amenities are similar, the pools are all... More

We loved staying at Port Orleans Riverside. The resort is very calm and tranquil, it is a vacation in itself. The rooms are quaint, fun and attractive. The resort has huge trees and feels cool even when it is hot outside. Our room had a coffee make and fridge. We went to the general store to buy a few snacks... More

This is our 2nd time staying at Port Orleans - Riverside. Nice scenic hotel. The single fold down bed is a favorite of my grand daughter. The building layouts are "complex". You can tell by the number of signs required to get you to your room. Ask for a room in a building by the lobby. Otherwise it might be... More

We just left after staying for 4 nights. Overall, I liked the hotel. There are pros and cons on staying here. I will probably try a different hotel next time. Also, I find it discouraging that management does not take the time to comment on these reviews. I would expect more from a Disney hotel. positives -comfortable bed -princess room... More
