    About

    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 Downtown Disney 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 and a complimentary area shuttle is available on-site.

    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. Babysitting and child care services are available (surcharge). The hotel has connecting rooms, available on request.
