I picked this hotel primarily because of price and was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and had cute little touches to remind you that you were at Disney such as towels in the shape of Mickey Mouse ears. It was a little bit of a walk to the bus, but was very quiet. On average it took about 20 min to get to each park. There is a gift shop/general […] store on site and a food court. We only ate here once and thought the food was good. Even better, there is a bar so that after a day of Disney fun you can get a get a glass of wine to relax. There was entertainment most nights and seemed pretty lively as we passed by late on a Saturday night. The hotel has a water taxi to downtown Disney. I have stayed at many Disney hotels, but would likely return to this one. It was a fun Birthday celebration with my 21 year old! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Disney hotel at at great price"
We really enjoyed staying at this hotel on the last day of our hotel, the facilities were great and we really enjoyed the swimming pool and entertainment. Excellent location close to the parks.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sweet princess-themed rooms but too soft bed"
Very nice hotel in beautiful surroundings. Disney princess decorations and firework lights in bed-ends. Small fridge was very convenient. One of the beds was too soft (made my back really ache in the morning) but the other one wasn't that much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Loved the resort but the mattresses need to be replaced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We loved the accomdations and the bus service to and from the parks and the children enjoyed all the activities at the hotel and pool.,Genuine Expedia guest review
"A favorite stays that way"
Because of quality, price and convenience, we often like to stay at Port Orleans Riverside. This trip in April continued that feeling. In spite of how crowded all of WDW was during this "spring break" week, our room and the area was peaceful and quiet. Everything was up to the quality level we expect.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Disney parks."
Very nice hotel. Food is a bit expensive but the hotel is on Disney property so it is close to the parks.Genuine Expedia guest review
Concierge very helpful,friendly hotel.liked not having to drive placesGenuine Expedia guest review
"Port Orleans Riverside"
When we checked in they upgraded us from a garden view room to a Princess room in Oak Manor. It was a great surprise. I prefer the Riverside to the French Quarter. I loved that the hotel played a Disney movie out on the lawn every evening.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good location. Clean and comfortable. Service was prompt but not always complete. Hotel amenities were excellent. Wonderful food complex for quick service meals. A short (Disney) bus or car ride to the various parks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with great pool!"
We didn't stay long, but it was my second stay there. I really enjoyed myself each time. Love the boat ride to downtown Disney, and the carriage ride. Great food, friendly staff! Cleanliness was tops! I will stay again, next time we are there!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, quiet hotel-I love the river!"
Our room, which was a 'royal', was SO convenient to the lobby, restaurants, and shuttles. We ate dinner at the main dining room one night and the food was excellent, as was the waitress. The main pool, with waterslide was great and we also enjoyed the smaller pool near our room. This is one of my favorite resorts at Disney now!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Big not always best"
Sprawling hotel with hundreds of rooms and therefore lots of guests. Dining Hall is a zoo in the morning and food quality is average minus. Staff were helpful as you would expect from a Disney property. Check in was a long winded experience. Rooms are fairly basic and beds not very comfortable. Paid for a water view but did not get one.We liked the […] convenience of location, swimming pool and boat service to Disney village but unlikely to return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Haven't been to this hotel in years ..."
Haven't been to this hotel in over 3 years, and my has it improved. Rooms are all renovated and beautifully decorated. You don't have to stay in a princess room to get a nice room. Staff were fabulous, and helped us out in a difficult situation with a lost teenager.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was very clean. I always have high expectations when staying ON Disney property though. We had zero problems, except we never had enough coffee in the morning. We had four adults staying in our room, but only two coffee pouches every day. And you do you have to walk a little ways to get to a bus or even to the lobby. Otherwise, no complain […] ts!

"Nice hotel, easy access to Disney parks."
My husband and I brought our son, his wife and their 2 sons. The hotel was a great place to stay. My grand sons loved the pool with the water slide. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Disney Hotel"
A great place to stay. Would stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean and quiet room"
Easy check in, rooms always cleaned promptly and always a little something extra done with the towels that reflected DisneyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and very relaxing."
We had a great time at Port Orleans Resort Riverside. The only complaint I would have is that I would like to have had luggage carts onsite of our room and also the beds were a little hard. Other than that it was a great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
My only disappointment is that I had to call maintenance twice to fix a drawer that wouldn't stay closed and there was dust on bottom section of the shelves.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with direct access to Disney and Epcot"
I stayed in the Mansion portion of the hotel which I would highly recommend. They seem to have been updated and were very nice. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was VERY large which is great for families. My building was the 8500 numbers and was perfect for location. We had a pool right by the room that was very large and a lot quieter than the […] main pool. Highly recommend. Also only a short walk to main pool and the center with restaurants and store. The shuttle ( taxi and bus) took long. Allow up to an hour to get there regardless of which you choose. But was definitely convenient and comfortable. We've stayed in a number of Disney hotels from Fort Wilderness, Swan and Dolphin, Caribbean beach etc and I would stay here again. From the room to the amenities to the price ( I paid only 158 night through Expedia) it was well worth it. Remember request the Mansion side not the rustic. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love Disney Riverside!"
Love this hotel. We upgraded and my kids loved the lit up headboards! We had fun laying in bed in the dark and watching them. Also beautiful grounds!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in an Alligator Bayou room. It was nice and clean. For the price it was great. My kids loved the pull down bed. We had just stayed at the Grand Floridian which was extravagant and extremely convenient with the monorail and elevators so when the kids passed out in the double stroller we were able to keep them sleeping all the way back to our […] room. At Port Orleans that was not so easy. We had to go up stairs with the kids and then get the stroller. So ask for a first floor room if you have kids in a stroller. The boat ride to Downtown Disney was nice! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Disney at its best"
The room was clean and fun decor. Only thing is it is spread out be ready to walk to the bus stops.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed everything about our stay. The resort was beautiful and had many things to do for the kids and adults. Additionally, it was clean and everyone we met on the staff were great. I have a gluten allergy and the chefs at the hotel were able to fix me virtually all of the food that others were eating with no problem-amazing pizza and pasta, etc. […] We would absolutely go back!

Port Orleans riverside was a fine place to stay. We were in oak manor so the location was good for the pool and the bus stop. The biggest negative were the awful beds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and out of the way"
Quiet and out of the way but still close to the parks and downtown Disney! You can take a boat ride to downtown Disney as well. But there are plenty of activities right there at the hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. Good location."
Stayed there with 2 teenagers. Very clean. Could've had better pillows but no complaints. Would also have liked a blue ray player or movies on demand for a rainy day.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved Port Orleans Riverside....hotel staff was very helpful.....our room was very far away from lobby which was difficult for my husband to walk. When I asked them to change to a closer room, they did without reservation. Everything was very clean.....loved the ferry and bus transportation to all the theme parks and Downtown Disney. we never had to […] wait more than 5-10 minutes to get transportation. There wasn't a lot of dining choices at the hotel, so we went to Downtown Disney to eat dinner......The food court was very convenient at the hotel. the concierge staff was very helpful and always aiming to please. The housekeeping staff was always busy keeping everything clean. Would go back again to this moderately priced but nice hotel resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a room for five and it was excellent! Plenty of room and was very clean. Pool was fun for the kids with the water slide and the pool party everyday. We roasted marshmallows everyday also. Plenty to do and would recommend for everybody.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved our stay there. I wish it could have been for more than one night. So glad the main restaurant was open until midnight so that we could get a snack after a long day at Disney. Beautiful grounds and room!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for adults and kids"

"Very convenient place to stay."
Disney Port Orleans was a great place to stay. Very clean, very quiet and had almost all the amenities that we needed. A microwave in our room would have been great. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect spot. Right at Disney. Away from Disney. All wrapped Into one!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Mother Daughter vacation"
enjoyed the stay and grounds. frustrating misinformation provided by staff on departure - lost hours of valuable vacation timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We did some research before we decided to book the Disney Port Orleans Resort--River Side. I am glad i made that decision, and i have to say we were really impressed from beginning to the end. Very accommodating staff, super happy and friendly and helpful as always. They are very knowledgable pretty much about everything you need to know to plan out […] your day. The transportation to downtown Disney could be some wait but the route is very organized. The Bob Jackson piano performance at the Hotel bar is a must see if you stay here from Thursday to Sunday. Beautiful property, well maintained. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
we had a great time but my daughter got sick so wasnt the overal best but made the best of the time we hadGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, moderate-priced Disney hotel."
Everything was clean and comfortable, and the free transportation was great. Staff was like all of Disney, 95% happy and cheerful :) Less kids than some other disney resorts (quieter), but plenty for them to do.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved it I will come againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quite and relaxing"
Exceeded my expectations, had a very relaxing stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel close to Disney, has ferry to downtown"
perfect affordable hotel on Disney property. Has food court and restaurant on site and plenty of activities for the kids. has buses to parks and ferry to downtown Disney.Genuine Expedia guest review
Disney Port Orleans Riverside was just perfect. The grounds are beautiful - it was so nice to just meander and enjoy - very relaxing after a busy day at the theme parks. The beds were comfortable, room was spotless, and there were a lot of food selections at the food court. The "cast members" were great, too, and went out of their way for you. Downtown […] Disney was easily accessible by water taxi, which was fun to ride. The theme parks and water parks were about a 15 minute ride by the Disney shuttle, which had 4 different locations at the hotel, so you should be able to find a location near your hotel room. Also, Fulton's General Store not only carried a nice selection of gifts, but also had drugstore items, plus milk, cereal, bagels, wine and beer, along with plenty of other snacks. We will definitely return to Port Orleans Riverside. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointing for a Disney Resort"
We have been to Disney World five times in the past eleven years. Our very first time in 2003 we stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside and had a wonderful stay. It was everything you'd expect from a Disney vacation experience. We returned to the Port Orleans Riverside (POR) 11 years later. Unfortunately, this time around, the POR did not meet what one […] would expect from a Disney vacation. We booked a garden view room, but got a parking lot view room underneath a dark stairwell on the first floor. We switched rooms, but our luggage from Magical Express ended up delivered to the old room, even though the front desk said that would not happen. It took 5 hours to finally get our luggage. Our new room was not vacuumed and there was old milk in the refrigerator. Housekeeping was poor the entire stay. One day they did not even show up. It took 3 hours of waiting late at night and 3 different phone calls for them to finally show up. Another day, they took away all the extra soaps and shampoo, leaving us with nothing. They never restocked the coffee maker, and glasses during our stay, and worse, they didn't restock the toilet paper either. The hotel telephone operators seemed dismissive rather than apologetic whenever we called about all of the above. Not acceptable at all for Disney customer service! Wi Fi was terrible throughout the POR. We ended up using our iPhones' 3G/4G connection instead. We requested a late check out at the end, but the POR wouldn't allow it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It's good to be home...."
As the Disney's Magical Express coach pulls into POR, a small sign says, "Welcome Home." That's the way we feel about Riverside. It's been our family's vacation home for more than a decade. This trip to POR was top-notch. The rooms were very clean and airy; the food court was very good; and the staff were attentive and friendly as always. If you're […] interested in going to all of the parks, POR has a central location. It offers bus transport to all Disney destinations, and water transportation to Downtown Disney. A few feature was the omelette bar, which transforms into a pasta bar at dinner. A single pasta dinner filled up even my 6-4/230 lb son! The pasta is served in boxes to make it easy to take leftovers back to your rooms and keep in the refrigerators. Combination of great location, wonderful layout, and terrific staff. Don't miss Port Orleans! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
