We stayed here for 2 nights to go to Disney. The grounds are gorgeous and rooms are very, very clean. We stayed in a Royal Pool View room. Location is good to the lobby and food court and just a short walk to the main pool. Our room overlooks the quiet pool. The rooms are a little small and the...

I've never been to Louisiana but this hotel reflects the storybook setting. Let's start with the hotel aspects. We arrived on a Sunday morning and the line to check in was about average (10 or so people in front of us). The lobby is beautiful and includes the front desk, bell desk, general store, bathrooms, entrance to two of the...

We had a king bed room on 3rd floor in Building #30 Acadian. It looked over the river and the largest pool on the property was a short walk across the bridge. There was a quieter pool on the side of our building which we used every day,only complaint was that they didn't have pool towels there. You needed to...

This was our first stay at the Port Orleans Resort- Riverside. Disney does a great job of picking you up at the airport, they picked up our luggage too and put it in our room. they have busses to the parks that come pretty often and they have buses and boats to Disney Springs. We only took the boats because...

Would definitely return here. Quiet and laid-back atmosphere, great for younger children. We were quite impressed by the quantity and cautious attention of the lifeguards at the very kid-friendly pool. Rooms were clean and very generic (not overtly Disney-themed), which suited us fine. Staff were mostly friendly. Upon checkout, we expected to be asked how our stay was, but we...

Family of 4 had a dream Disney vacation in a Royal Guest Suite. Room was not overly large but enough space for us. Comfortable queen beds and spacious double sinks. Great hotel staff and absolutely beautiful property! We had a huge quiet pool near our building, Parterre Place. We were a 5min walk to the buses and main building. Would...

We received the corner room we asked for in the Oak Building of Magnolia Bend. We had a 'Garden View' room with the light up headboards, so cool even for adults. Location was quiet and peaceful, even when they did the outdoor movies in the courtyard below us.

We have two little girls so we stayed in the princess room. It's a little more expensive, but the experience was worth it. It gave it a more magical feel. The rooms are clean, staff was amazing, the grounds were beautiful, and everything was so convenient!

This is the first time I have stayed here and being a DVC member this is a step down from what Disney has its DVC members accustomed to. The resort is big though and the bus stops are not nearly as convenient as they are at most of the luxury resorts. That being said the grounds, buildings and overall theme...

Our "go to" comfort resort on Disney proper. Calm open spaces, winding walkways, amazing landscaping with friendly staff. Just be sure you enjoy walking as the resort is spread out and never know in advanced where your room will be. Do make any special requests AT TIME OF MAKING YOUR RESERVATION. They should try to accommodate you.....as they have for...
