This is our second stay at Riverside and the hotel has grown on me considerably! First of all, this hotel is HUGE. Fortunately, as we arrived after dark, we were transported to our room by Fritz on the golf cart. I won't say the buildings are WELL marked, but if you pay a little attention, you can find landmarks to... More

My wife and I took our 3 year old daughter to Disney recently and stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside resort. We stayed in a Royal Guest room which I recommend for the decor, however, the size and layout is average. Our daughter loved the princess pictures and colors, so for that it was worth it. The room was clean... More

This was out first time staying here. We thought the place was very nice. Check in was easy and the CM was great! We didn't spend too much time at the resort but the grounds are so pretty. We stayed in the Magnolia part. We had a garden view. The room was so cute. Bright and airy! It's so quiet... More

The theming was amazing, the plants, turning pathways, and small bridges of the bayou and the trimmed hedges and large pillars of Mongolia bend, this resort had it all. The pool was amazing, the water slide delighted young and old alike. A very nice resort if you are on a budget.

This was our first experience staying at a Disney property. With no experience and somewhat of a last minute decision to take this vacation, we chose Port Orleans - Riverside purely because of the price tag. With a package discount, we paid around $165/night for our room. I feel we got what we paid for! We were in building 39,... More

This is our 2nd trip to Riverside. And we really like this resort. When we checked in we had requested Magnolia, but were placed in Alligator Bayou, we were also told there were no other rooms available. We were a bit disappointed, but off we went, didn't take our bags out of the car as we thought we'd check out... More

We have now stayed at all of the Disney moderate level resorts after staying at Riverside. We liked Riverside a lot. The quiet pool near our building was really nice and in a picturesque setting. The quick service restaurant is very good. Love the muffaletta sandwich. There are 4 bus stops around the resort. We got dropped off last every... More

Cheap hotel..cheap feel.. terrible service on every level so far except the bell hop. He was nice and on time. At check in the girl was a little snobby and not really helpfull at all. Asked questions about the grounds and facilities and got a map with scribble on it. They stuck us in the 34 block of rooms which... More

From check in to check out, the experience was awful! I will preface my review with a warning about customer service! This is by far the worst customer service of any hotel I have ever experienced, especially in terms of rude staff across the board and providing misinformation or erroneous information. They made mistake after mistake after mistake, consuming 2-3... More

Booked three rooms for 2 nights each at the Disney's Port Orleans Riverside after not staying at a Disney property for 6 years (have stayed a dozen times at a Disney resort in the past). BIG Disney fans but Riverside was a great disappointment. The property is tired looking (chairs with stains, furniture chipped, bed conditions very and carpet worn),... More

“Wouldn't want a room overlooking the pool, especially in the summer months.”

“Avoid this Disney resort. Disney offers many better options as do surrounding resorts.”

“When traveling with girls, try their Royal Guest Room, they'll love it”
  • Standard Bedroom. Don't spend more paying for a garden view. You don't need it
  • Bathroom is OK. 3 star bathroom for the price of a 4+ star but his is Disney, so it is worth it
  • Bedroom is clean and comfortable
  • TV and coffee machine
  • Double sink. This is a normal bathroom. Expect a much better one in the Royal Guest Room
  • Disney amenities. Quality just average, but kids love them
