Large dated resort in need of a major overhaul. As if a family does not walk enough at Disney, factor in a HUGE resort requiring a 10min walk to get anywhere. Rooms are dated with horrible mattresses. There are also a large amount of mosquitoes and bugs around. I wouldnt pay Disney prices for this again.

I have to start by saying that Staying in a Disney Hotel wasn't something I thought I would enjoy. But I absolutely loved every minute of it. Port Orleans Riverside is understated Disney, its clean,so very clean and tidy. The grounds are immaculate, the rooms are lovely. It really doesn't feel crowded at all and its so well set out...

Very nice hotel. We stayed in the Alligator Bayou section and was impressed with the spacious room and really cool décor. There was a small fridge and coffee maker in the room. Area was quiet but safe. The pull out couch was not comfortable (very hard to sleep on), but the regular beds were comfy. There was a Disney Park...

This was our second time staying at Riverside on a Disney trip. We enjoyed it again as much as the last time. This time we had a regular room instead of a royal room. While it doesn't have that Disney touch like the royal room, it was still very nice. The room was big enough for our family of 5...

We booked Port Orleans Riverside after we heard many great reviews. We were not disappointed. This environment is so beautiful and romantic even though we were there with the entire family. Rooms are adequate but somewhat small compared with standard hotels. Beds were comfortable although could be softer. Housekeeping did an amazing job ensuring that our room was always ready...

Rooms were nice and clean. Very quiet. Beds ok. Buses - not good. At every park had to wait for bus. The only place that had a line at every park, every time was the Riverside. We seemed to have the most people and the least amount of buses. It got to be a joke among the passengers. We stayed...

Stayed in the princess rooms. The theme is cute and I imagine kids would love it. The room was nice enough. As with many Disney rooms the bathroom is not the nicest. It's not the cleanest looking and looks dated. Also, the resort is huge so you could be a far away. I would recommend paying for a room close...

Amazing... no real point waxing poetically, as Disney is simply the greatest place on Earth! A few tips, though... - Book FastPass - Take advantage of extra hours on site - Take meal plan if offered, otherwise, depending on pickiness of family members, better off "a-la-carte". - If travelling in summer, plan mornings at parks, come back for lunch and...

We stayed here for 2 nights to go to Disney. The grounds are gorgeous and rooms are very, very clean. We stayed in a Royal Pool View room. Location is good to the lobby and food court and just a short walk to the main pool. Our room overlooks the quiet pool. The rooms are a little small and the...
