Overview

Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside is themed around the southern charms of rural Louisiana. Divided into two distinct sections, this vast resort presents plantation-style mansions on its Magnolia Bend, and rustic charm around its Alligator Bayou. The main pool imaginatively resembles a swimming hole with a sawmill water slide, and there further quiet pools (five in total) dotted throughout the resort. Southern hospitality abounds Boatwright's Dining Hall, and complimentary steamboats transport guests to the Disney Springs Marketplace and West Side.

The resort lies in the Disney Springs Resort area, just over two miles from Disney Springs. The scenic Sassagoula River winds through the resort and offers Disney transportation to Disney Springs, West Side and the neighbouring sister property – Disney's Port Orleans Resort French Quarter. The resort’s Disney bus service operates between the hotel and Disney theme parks, so you can easily reach Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park (around two miles away) and Epcot (three miles away). Beyond the Walt Disney World Resort, you can travel to Universal Studios in less than 13 miles, and Orlando International Airport in around 21 miles.

The two main room categories include standard rooms and Royal Guest Rooms. Rooms in the Alligator Bayou section feature more rustic, Cajun-style furnishings and magnolia walls, while rooms in the magnolia section have Wedgewood blue walls, paisley soft furnishings, and elegantly painted headboards. All rooms are equipped with coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges. Royal Guest Rooms are regal-themed and feature more opulent touches such as ornate drapes, patterned bedding, gold-framed princess portraits and elaborate headboards which depict firework displays, with special optic lighting.

Other facilities

Offering almost 200 acres of land, the resort’s grounds are lined with oak trees, magnolia plants and fragrant rose bushes. Meander past the white-column mansions of Magnolia Bend, and cross one of the bridges to reach the wooded Ol’ Man Island. Here you will discover a central swimming pool with a waterslide which is built into the “abandoned” millworks. Nearby, there’s a hot tub, a smaller children’s pool, and a themed playground for little ones. Catch-and-release fishing and evening “campfires on de'Bayou” are also hosted here.

Elsewhere on the property, there are five quieter leisure pools and an array of family-friendly activities on offer. You can go on two-hour guided fishing excursions, rent bicycles and boats at the marina, or go on horse drawn carriage rides in the nigh time (all available for a supplement charge). Gamers can spend time in the Medicine Show Arcade and, on select nights, you can watch complimentary Disney film screenings on the Magnolia South Pool deck. Otherwise, amble along the Sassagoula River to enjoy the facilities at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort French Quarter – including the impressive Doubloon Lagoon pool area. 

Dining information

Riverside Mill Food Court is a quick-service restaurant which has been designed to resemble a cotton mill. Inside, there are six food stations which serve fresh bakery items, pizza and pasta dishes, healthy salads and take away items such as sandwiches. There’s also a carving station and a grill.

Head to Boatwright's Dining Hall to dine on Cajun-style cuisine and popular American fare. This nautical themed restaurant overlooks the Sassagoula River and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. Menu items include New Orleans-style Gumbo, burgers, jambalaya and grilled cuts of meat.

Scat Cat’s Club Lounge is renowned for its Mardi Gras inspired cocktails and live jazz music on select nights. For light snacks and drinks, there’s the charming River Roost lounge which offers live musical entertainment too. Otherwise, order refreshing beverages at the poolside bar, Muddy Rivers.

Make use of the convenient pizza delivery service if you would rather relax in your room.

Additional information

Come for the themed hotels, stay for the benefits: there are many good reasons to stay on-site when you visit Walt Disney World, not least you'll have 30-minute early entry into Walt Disney World theme parks every day. You'll also have the chance to have breakfast with your favourite Disney characters. With the complimentary Resort transportation, getting to the gates of each park is a breeze. Or if you've hired a car you can enjoy complimentary standard parking at Disney theme parks, Disney water parks and the Disney Springs area too.

If you book a Walt Disney Resort you can also purchase the MagicBand+, at a pre-arrival price, which opens up lots of key features. You can make your first individual Lightning Lane purchase from 07:00 each day of your visit, before the park opens, and you can select a one-hour arrival window, one at a time, for up to two different attractions per day.
