Rooms are very dark in the days due to lack of windows but this wasn't much of an issue. staff were friendly only downside was lack of food choices available - however...

We visited friends who are staying here. The resort is 3 times as large as the Port Orleans resort. They preferred our hotel and pool. Especially the water slide. It was much eadier to find a chair poolside. Our trips by boat were quicker due to the shorter distance. We never had to wait in line or for a 2nd...

It's smaller and doesn't have YeeHawBob. ( who puts on a great show) but I liked it better then the bigger Riverside. Staff was great food court was also good. We...

We have been to Disney 15 plus times in last two years. Each time we have stayed on property the resorts have been beyond perfect , the service perfect, rooms spotless, and exactly as described. Sadly Port Orleans Riverside did not live up to what we find is normal standards for Disney. Upon arrival we found out no elevators in...

We thought the room here was great. Nicely decorated, clean, comfortable bed. Lots of walking paths, lots of parking, carriage rides around the property. Sit-down restaurant (Boatwrights) and bar were good, food court was not (really not).

My Mickey band doesn't even work. If there is a problem the manager is not available for even a discussion!! It's our first day here and Disney...

We just came back from a 3 night stay in a Royal Room at Port Orleans Riverside. We loved the resort! I loved all the Disney touches in the Royal room, especially the fireworks in the headboards. Room was great, resort was quiet and beautiful. The bus service was great, never had a problem, and we were there on a...

I treated my daughter to a quick trip to WDW for her 30th birthday for a quick 2 nt stay and she chose this hotel. The cast member who checked me in was super friendly and helpful and was able to find a room already available in the building that we asked for even at 10 am during Easter break...
