5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a great room on an upper level that was a few minutes walk from the main dining facilities, and even shorter walk to two different pools. Found the main pool to be busy with families, but the Jacuzzi less busy. The boat ride provided a very relaxing and romantic ride to Disney Springs for an evening's enjoyment. Never had... More

Long overdue review but we are planning trip number two so I thought I would get this done. We got into Riverside early afternoon as we transferred over from Universal. We knew we were early so our rooms were not ready as yet. The cast member we dealt with was amazing as she got us a ground floor corner room... More

My husband and I just got back from a week long stay at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort and had a great time. I had not been to WDW in 15+ years, my husband in over 20 years so we were excited to go, just us, before we have kids. We took the Magic Express from the airport to the... More

I initially decided on Port Orleans - Riverside when I saw the pictures of the Royal Guest Rooms. The decor in the Royal Guest rooms are amazing and make you feel like a princess! I have stayed there on three different occasions and my favorite room is the Royal Guest Room - River View. I definitely look forward to staying... More

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.
