This was my first time taking my five year old daughter to Disney World. I have been there before, but I've only stayed at the All-Star Resorts or off-campus properties. Boy were we in for a treat! The resort is beautiful, and in wonderful shape. We stayed in a Royal Room, and my daughter was impressed with all of the...

Not fancy but clean and simple. We went for a quick getaway and we're pleased enough with accommodations. The property itself is lovely. We wish the pools hours were open later and we were annoyed by lack of business center or even just a place to do some printing. I also did not care for the pillows. Too hard for...

Really a lovely area. However, this is a very large resort ( I think all of the Disney resorts are) so you need to think about what is important to you. If you want to be close to the food court area, lobby and transportation you might consider building 14. My sister and I have some knee issues so this...

We just stayed in this hotel. It was nice to have the perks of booking our park tickets and meals together but the hotel room was just so so. We are a family of five so space is always limited and we needed to use all the selves and such to store stuff. We had to clean the shelves before...

Overall a nice place to stay-- well kept, clean, and (as you'd expect) a super-friendly and helpful staff. The grounds are large, so things can be very spread out-- definitely check on a map before you check in to make sure you understand how far the walk is from your room to the restaurants / front desk. That said, Disney is...

This is Great Resort! Room was clean and had plenty of space for a family of 4. Included 2 queen beds, nice bathroom, sitting area and mini fridge! Walking the beautifully maintained grounds reminded us of being inside a Disney park. The gift shop at the resort was also great! We all enjoyed the complimentary boat rides to Disney Springs!...

Stayed here for part of our time at Disney. Very different feel from our other hotel but still loved it. Fantastic grounds to walk in and the pools available were fantastic too! Once again easy to get buses to and from the different parks. Would happily come back to this hotel!

Our family of 5 stayed here the week after Christmas and we had an amazing time. We were at Disney 5 years before this and stayed at Caribbean Beach resort and although we liked them both, I preferred Riverside. If you are debating whether to stay on property or off site - I highly recommend staying on Disney property. Disney...

The hotel is very good. Although the room isn't very big, it is very well distributed. The room was well cleaned, the pool and pool bar really nice. The Bus to the parks worked very well. It was a very nice experience. We will sure go back.

As many, many other reviews have written... Port Orleans-Riverside is likely the best of all the moderate Disney resorts. I particularly thought the Alligator Bayou section was well "themed". Rooms are well decorated and while on the small-ish side could accommodate a family of five. The smaller pools were usually empty or nearly so which is nice for adults. However,...
