I'm a big Disney fan and we loved our second floor room here last year. But this year's room, #1414 Bldg 14, Water View, (the priciest rooms in Alligator Bayou) had the dirtiest carpet I've ever seen in any hotel room. Filthy, stained, dingy. And a main floor room means you hear every toilet flushing in the overhead rooms and...

I've been going to Disney World since I was a kid ( early 70's) and have stayed at almost all of their resorts. We started with the value resorts, but were interested in the moderate and deluxe resorts so we booked a few days at the Caribbean Beach, New Orleans Riverside and the Animal Kingdom Lodge resorts to give us...

When I arrived to the hotel, my family and I were greated by a man at a gate. He directed us to the lobby so we can check in. When we got there we were amazed at how much beautiful it was in person. We didn't wait at all to check in. The guy at the desk attended us quickly...

This resort is under disney's moderate resorts , I have stayed in a few of disney's deluxe resorts and this resort I would say is a little bit above moderate. I only say that though because of the beautiful scenery and the resort decor is pretty beautiful. However , it is not my favorite resort ive stayed at. I guess...

Stayed here based on recommendations from friends. Check in took a while since it was a trainee. Bell service staff at check in: wonderful. Stayed in alligator bayou section in a room with a small Murphy bed which my kids fought over. Room was clean, housekeeping was ok, but not great and kind of hit or miss each day. Lovely...

had a lot of fun at the parks... and the resort is really beautiful... with a very nice pool... but could not enjoy the room; our first room had a smelly shower curtain which was replaced, it was poorly cleaned, and worst of all - had some mean biting bugs... once we figured it's in the room we changed it....

We arrived March 27th, 2013 and left April 1st. We already had our magic bands before we left home so all we had to do was go to the check in area and find out what room we were in. This resort is pretty big and spread out! We had a royal guest room and it was really cool to...

We booked a trip here for my son's birthday. When we first arrived all seem great. Until we saw the room. We stayed in the Alligator Bayou close to a bus depot. The room was DIRTY! There was dust/small debris all over the floor, especially in the corners and underneath the sink vanity. The phone looked as though it had...

I just got back from spending 5 nights at Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort. Overall, this is a lovely resort and I would go back in a heartbeat. I found a really good online deal for their Royal Guest room with a garden view. Our 5 year old daughter absolutely loved the LED headboard and all the "gold" fixtures. It...

We booked 2 Royal Rooms (river view) at Port Orleans Riverside from Nov 30-Dec 14 after receiving an amazing Free Dining PIN. It was our first stay at a Disney resort and we'll definitely be back. Our rooms were located in Oak Manor which is an easy walk to the main building and food court. The Royal Rooms are beautiful;...
