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 Hotel Resort guests receive complimentary Disney's Magical Express Service for roundtrip airport shuttle from Orlando International Airport, luggage delivery and airline check in*.

If you are not on the dining plan purchase the Disney cup for $15.00. It has free refills, it will pay for its self.

A childhood dream come true

The resort was beautiful. The landscape was awesome. We took a scenic boat ride to and from Downtown Disney which was great. The motor coaches to the parks where very convenient. They would arrive to the resort every 15 to 20 minutes so you could go anytime you wanted to. Please take my advice as a first timer to Disney World and stay at a resort! Transportation is included and believe me the traffic and parking could be quit a challenge. We had so much fun we are planning a trip for next year.

Great getaway and value

The service was impeccable, right down to the room service. Attention to detail was amazing. When Orbitz overcharged our reservation, hotel staff brought it to our attention and made an adjustment without us even requesting it.

The Port orleans Riverside was very comfortable with easy access to all amenities and very friendly staff. The housekeeping staff was extremly friendly and went out of their way to please my wife by making her special little wash cloth and towel animals.
