We stayed at the Port Orleans – Riverside property for two nights at our family vacation last week. The property is huge, with a number of small buildings each containing a few dozen guest rooms. The rooms themselves aren’t huge and don’t have some of the amenities found in luxury hotels such as closets and separate toilets from the bath. The doors also face to the outside, which is not my preference. But the hotel rooms have some wonderful elements as well. We satyed in one of Princess Tiana’s Guest rooms. The headboards are huge carved pieces with images of a mystical swamp on them – and then you press a button on the side of the headboard they light up with LED fireworks displays! My daughter also recognized Jasmine’s magic carpet worked into the rug and the photos on the wall appear to be ones of Tiana hangin’ with her princess friends. One 3D image features all the princesses hanging out in front of the guest house you’re staying in. Another shows all of the princesses with their princes on the steps of a guest house. It was realistic enough that may daughter wrote Tiana a thank-you note for allowing us to stay at her guest house!
They also have a fun piano bar and nightly outdoor movies at the Oak Manor Guest House, which happened to be where we stayed. The Disney transportation is convenient too. It takes longer than I wish it would, but it’s still better than driving and parking. And it is lovely that the Disney service at the parks translates to the hotel as well – I love that the staff still trades Disney pins!
