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

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.

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.
