About Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, Lake Buena Vista

Location.
Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is located on the Sassagoula River in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. This resort stands 1 mile from Epcot, and 2 miles from the Disney Springs® Area.

Hotel Features.
Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is inspired by Louisiana's southern charm and Mark Twain's vision of life on the Mississippi River. A paddlewheel churns alongside Boatwright's Dining Hall which serves breakfast and dinner, and specializes in southern dishes, steaks and seafood. The Riverside Mill offers quick-serve stations that prepare everything from pastas to burgers. This eatery houses a country market stocked with "grab-and-go" items. River Roost lounge provides fireside seating and serves evening appetizers and refreshments. Sassagoula Pizza Express offers room-delivery pizza. A 3.5-acre outdoor pool complex known as Ol' Man Island features rock formations, rope swings, a waterslide and a play area. Recreational amenities include six outdoor pools, and rental bicycles and watercraft. A fishing hole is stocked with catch-and-release bass, bluegill and catfish. Horse-drawn carriage rides operate nightly.

Guestrooms.
The resort is divided into the Magnolia Bend and Alligator Bayou sections. Magnolia Bend reflects antebellum grace with smoke-free guestrooms housed in three-story, mansion-style buildings positioned along the river. Alligator Bayou's smoke-free guestrooms are set within rustic, country-style lodges. Alligator Bayou beds are lit by overhead lanterns and feature 250-thread-count sheets, gingham bedspreads and tree-branch accented headboards. Armoires feature stamped-tin doors. Pine-paneled vanity areas display bark-framed mirrors, and inlaid stone and tile floors. Accommodations include satellite TV, coffeemaker, mini fridge, and complimentary wireless Internet access. The hotel has connecting rooms, available on request.

Check in was 4 pm versus 3. Over 45 minutes to check in / get park tickets merged with magic pass. Hotel is dated- not worth $$$ . Better to stay off site - not much value added.

I think they are having house cleaning staffing issues. Although it was nice to not be bothered by someone wanting to get in the room, after five days house keeping should have come by to tidy up.

Not impressed with Disney magic at this property

Very Good8.0
Riverside was fine, just hard to find
Fell into the trap of going to the wrong port Orleans resort - riverside is a separate place. Tip: Uber can pick up at a guest room building, and is a fast and easy way to get to other resorts.
