Overview

Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside, in Lake Buena Vista, transports travelers to the Southern setting of the Louisiana Bayou, but features the accommodations expected of a Disney resort. Guests choose from royally refurbished rooms inspired by Princess Tiana in the plantation-style Magnolia Bend, or in Alligator Bayou's spacious and secluded rustic cottages.

Swimming options include five relaxing leisure pools, and a swimming and fishing hole with a traditional sawmill slide, allowing guests to experience Disney resort amenities in a setting true to its rural inspiration. Visitors also enjoy pool parties, campfires, and occasional outdoor movies to complete the Southern experience.

First visit to Orlando

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 23, 2015
My husband and I spent three nights at Port Orleans Riverside, and I'd give our stay there a B. I booked there because the reviews were positive overall, and it was the recommended moderate Disney resort on a travel blog. I think I might have given a little higher grade if we had allotted ourselves more time to experience all the resort has to offer. It wasn't a bad stay, but I didn't feel it was anything special. I also found the rooms to be a bit noisy, even though we were there during between the peak seasons. I could clearly hear the water rushing through the pipes of a room either next to us or above us, and because the rooms open to a metal and concrete balcony, there's nothing to absorb the sound of people walking by or talking. The staff were friendly enough, and while I appreciate that it was tastefully decorated (as opposed to an explosion of Disney characters), on the other hand, I didn't find anything about it quintessentially Disney. SOME Disney references here and there would have been lovely. Basically, I wouldn't tell people to NOT come here, but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend that people stay at Port Orleans: Riverside, either.

Very nice stay at a great price. The grounds are very pretty with plenty of pools and it was very quiet which is what we were looking for. Our only complaint would be that the food court could have had a lot more choices.

It was a nice hotel with s very tropical feel but it was too spread out for our taste.... Be sure to ask for a room close to the main lobby for ease of travel to the parks whether by boat or bus

Great Time @ Food & Wine

Would recommend Mon, Nov 9, 2015
The Disney hotel was everything we expected it to be, and since we did not spend a lot of time in the room, it was perfect for us. We enjoyed the convenience of Disney Transportation, although multiple times we had to wait 30+ minutes for a bus. But Port Orleans Riverside is fairly close to Epcot and Magic Kingdom which was the primary focus of our trip.
