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

Second time at Riverside...last time in Alligator Bayou, this time in a Royal Room. Both were lovely experiences. Becoming a favorite resort for us. Enjoyed the pools and how quiet this resort is. Good quick service meals. Does get crowded on transition days/the weekend but I'm sure that's the same everywhere. Spent a week here...enjoyed all the parks but also... More

This is not the best hotel I've ever been but I highly recommend staying at a Disney Hotel when going to WDW. I mean, children love the magic these resorts offer. Went there with my wife and the property is amazing, although the room is just OK. If you go with children I probably recommend the Disney value hotels (any... More

It was nice to have the murphy bed for our grand-daughter to sleep on but the curtain that pulled across the sink area was torn and hanging loose. The bathroom was poorly lit. I think it is time for disneyworld to reinvest some of the money back into this property. We stayed here about 20 years ago and it looks... More

“Alligator Bayou can fit more people per room”

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