Elegant Southern-style riverside resort

Located in the Downtown Disney, this Disney Resort Hotel has fantastic facilities and will take you back to the days of giant paddle-steamers to sample a Southern life of luxury. Return to the elegance and charm of riverboat days at Riverside where gracious mansions and bayou accommodations line a Mississippi-style waterway, whilst over at the French Quarter, the fun and excitement of New Orleans comes alive.

Royal room

Beaumont, Mississippi

We loved our Royal Room at Port Orleans. It was a little on the small side, as we unpacked our clothes, there was no where to move them out of the way but the kids loved it. At night, before lights out, they would watch the tv, which would read them Disney stories. The grounds were beautiful, with lush green grass and the beautiful antebellum home type buildings.

Loved this beautiful hotel!

Leeds, United Kingdom

We stayed here for a fortnight when we visited Disney World for the first time this April. We had a wonderful 2 weeks, as you'd expect, but this hotel really was an idyllic retreat from the hustle and bustle of the parks. We chose a 'Royal Room' as we thought our daughters would like the theming. They are decorated beautifully with pictures of Tiana and her princess friends as well as Aladdin's lamp taps and beautiful carpets adding to the atmosphere and make it feel really special. The little lightshow/led fireworks display in the headboards was a fab touch. The short walk round to the lobby/food court area is extremely pleasant. I did this a number of times to refill my resort mug and loved looking across the water at the main building with its water tower, boat works and mill wheel. Also, the grounds are very large and you could make a lovely evening out of walking around the bayou section and down to the French Quarter and back (obviously stopping for some beignets at Sassagoula Floatworks!) Absolutely beautiful! Let me think of some negatives... Check in took a while and they hadn't taken any notice of my request for an upstairs room, but they did alter our room on request and gave us extra fastpasses to make up for the amount of time it had taken, so all forgiven. Also, Disney hotel rooms are small when compared to other hotels, so that is worth bearing in mind if that's important to you and, as with all hotels in my experience, there wasn't enough space to dry towels and swimming gear properly but in general we found there was just enough room and were extremely happy. Would I stay again? Yes please! If only I could afford to come back...
