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...

Gorgeous location and grounds. Lovely rooms excellent service. Not ideal or practical for families, any person or persons with more than one child. When you consider a three day or more vacation you are looking for more comfortable resting place. More space in the rooms is necessary. For the price I was expecting more. Again lovely rooms but not practical....

We recently spent a week at POR and this hotel exceeded our expectations. We booked a Royal room to surprise our girls and they absolutely loved it. Our room was located in the Oak Manor section, which we found to be very convenient to the bus stop and to the food court. The rooms are fairly small, but perfectly suitable...

My family of 4 stayed here for 7 days. We booked a last minute deal ($2700 for everything) and did receive the free Disney dining plan. We were very pleased with the room. We had two queen beds and a murphy bed twin that had one of the characters from Princess and the Frog inside of it. My 8 year...

I just came back from Walt Disney World, staying at Port Orleans Riverside. I've stayed at two of the other moderate resorts at WDW (Caribbean Beach & Coronado Springs) and POR is my favorite moderate resort! The layout of the resort makes it very quiet. Even though they told us at check in that the resort was full, it did...

Resort layout and feel: This is quite a large resort (connected to the French Quarters as well) and you can have quite a bit of walking to do to the lobby depending on which lodge your room is. Saying that, the resort is beautifully landscaped with a river running through it, plenty of greenery and an old world rustic nature...

We stayed here for 7 nights. Last year we stayed at one of the All-Star resorts. That was very crowded and the pool was really minimal, just a big hole filled with water. So this time we decided upgrade. I will tell you the pros and cons of upgrading. It was much more quiet, and walking around with like walking...

This hotel offers rooms with a pull down trundle bed, allowing 5 guests, which is what we needed. This is the only resort you can pool hop with it's sister site, New Orleans French Quarter. The lobby is beautiful. There are two styles of buildings at this resort, Alligator Bayou and the Mansions. I thought the Mansion buildings were much...

Beautiful grounds, well decorated and themed rooms, fast and courteous service from room attendants. If you are planning on dividing your time between hotel and parks, this one has a lot of options to keep the family entertained. If you are here just to sleep, there are more affordable options on property. The self-serve dining is pretty standard across the...
