Return to the charming days of riverboats and Mark Twain as you 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 stocked fishing hole, country-style pool, flowered fields and two-story cottages create the nostalgic romance of down-home charm. Resort features 2,048 guest rooms, pool with slide, five quiet pools and one kiddie pool, arcade, playground, bicycle rentals, family fishing hole and a marina with watercraft rentals. Rooms are available for guests with disabilities.

Complimentary Wi-Fi service is now available in all Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Guests will now be able to access complimentary Wi-Fi in their rooms as well as in select common areas within the resort hotel, including restaurant locations, bus load zones, feature pools, arcades, convention spaces (if applicable) and the porte cochere.

Disney Hotel Resort guests also enjoy their Extra Magic Hours Benefit. On select days, Disney Resort hotel guests can enter a Disney Theme Park an hour early-and on select evenings, enjoy a Park up to two hours after regular closing time. That's when lines may be shorter and the weather can be more comfortable. Guests have time for a midday break or a dip in the pool. Then the gang will be ready to head back to the same Theme Park for more fun! Don't forget your Magic Your Way Tickets with Park Hopper Option! The Park Hopper option is the only way you will be able to fully enjoy the Extra Magic Hours Benefit when the extra hours in the morning is a different Disney theme park than the extra hours in the evening.

Disney Resort

Had a great time here! The main pool at Riverside is a bit small, but there are several other pools that were less crowded. Shuttles ran on time, staff friendly. It would be ideal if there were more restaurant options on the property, but all and all, Disney lived up to its great reputation!

Fun weekend getaway

Location is good. Provides Disney's magical express service to and from airport. Easy to get to Disney by bus, and they even offer a ferry service to downtown Disney which is great and runs more frequently. Room was a little small even for 2 people. Multiple pools and a family fun environment. Overall, pretty good hotel that we'd probably stay at again.

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

Bus transportation is good but if you can choose the French Quarter take that one it is closer to all the parks.

Epic Food and Wine Festival at Epcot

Check-in was a breeze, and the staff were super nice. The location of the room on the property, and the proximity of the property to Epcot were fantastic. I'll definitely be staying there again.

Disney Port Orleans Riverside

Staff of course was great, room was clean. All good except refrigerator was missing in room. We were so far away from the food court, but OK because food was just OK and over priced, with a car we went to other local restaurants.

Family Friendly Hotel

We traveled to Disney World with our 7 year-old. The pools at this location were great--we liked the big one at Riverside better but the big one at French Quarter is fun, too. Lots of other (presumably quieter) pools around the resort. Location is pretty central to the 4 Disney parks--but if using Disney transport plan on at least 1/2 an hour to your destination,; more like 3/4 to 1 hour. The staff here, as all over DW, was VERY friendly and efficient. We ate at the sit-down restaurant and the food was pretty good. The boat to downtown and FQ was noisier than I thouhgt it would be--but it's still a fun way to get to these places. Overall, for the price, it's a nice, quiet & clean place.
