Thanks for being one of the trusted frog family reviewers.
Guests like you make vacations better!

What we love

  • Tom Sawyer himself would feel right at home in the swimmin' hole on Ol' Man Island
  • Some standard rooms sleep five, with a trundle bed
  • Within 20 minutes of all resorts by bus and a short boat ride to Disney Springs™
  • Beautiful grounds with manicured magnolias and bayou "swamps"
  • Above-average table-service dining at Boatwright's Dining Hall
  • Princesses will love the theming of the royal rooms
  • Mom and dad (and the little ones too!) can enjoy a romatic horse-driven carriage ride along the banks of the Sassagoula River
  • Overall Frog Family's best pick of Disney World's Moderate Resort Hotels

Keep in Mind

  • Hotel charges $19 per night (sales tax included) for overnight self-parking
  • There are several bus stops; resort often shares bus service with French Quarter
  • Although not as far as most of the other Moderate Resort Hotels, your walk to the lobby, pool and dining areas can be quite long if your room is far away

Notable Facts

  • The food court is themed after a Southern cotton mill and includes a 35-foot, working water wheel
  • The grand lobby is meant to look like the inside of a river boat, with various ports of call listed above
  • Tiana's friends, the other Disney princesses, have left "gifts" in the decor of the Royal guest rooms. See if you can find them!
  • No room is more than a four-minute walk to a bus stop

Frog Family Tips

  • If you need room for five select a room in Alligator Bayou, which offers pull-out beds
  • Consider upgrading to a preferred room in building 14, 15 and 18 in Alligator Bayou if you want to be closest the lobby and dining areas
  • Request a standard room in buildings 17, 26 or 28 in Alligator Bayou if you want to be closer to the lobby and dining areas (not all requests are guaranteed)
  • Book a room in Oak Manor in Magnolia Bend if you want to be closest to the lobby and dinning areas
  • Go for a swim while you're waiting on laundry; each of the laundry facilities is located near a quiet pool

Best For

  • Families of five; those who want more amenities than the Value Resort Hotels offer but don't need multiple on-site table service options and the other amenities of the Deluxe Resort Hotels

Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside Information

Hotel Information
  • Return to the charming days of riverboats and Mark Twain and discover this moderately priced resort. Courtly pillars, grand staircases and splendid gardens blend with the Mississippi-style waterways and gracious Southern hospitality. "Mosey over" to Alligator Bayou and discover its rustic architecture, front porches and meandering walkways. A country-style pool, flowered fields and two-story cottages create the nostalgic romance of down-home charm.

FastPass+ allows you to pre-book up to three ride or attraction reservations per day. 

    The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

    • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
    • Free Airport Service - With Disney's Magical Express® Transportation, the convenient motorcoach service transports you between Orlando International Airport and your Official Walt Disney World® Hotel. Have your MagicBands ready to go at the airport before boarding. Learn more about Disney's Magical Express® Transportation.
    • Free Park Transportation - Along with complimentary transportation to the airport, you'll also receive free transportation to all Disney Theme Parks! Depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Monorail, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
    • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants and more.
    • Extended Theme Park Hours - With Extra Magic Hours Benefit, you can enter the park on select days one hour early, or stay an extra two hours after park closing. If you want to be able to stay at a park during regular hours, but use your EMH for a different park, you'll need a Park Hopper ticket. Read more about Extra Magic Hours Benefit and when we recommend you use them. (Valid Theme Park admission and Resort ID required)
