What makes Disney World Port Orleans French Quarter Resort NEAT ?

Split in to two very unique themed areas, sleep in the stately mansions in Magnolia Bend or a country lodge in the Alligator Bayou, easily making the Disney New Orleans Riverside Resort a NEAT Stay! The theme is just one reason to visit, others include the property layout on the River and Water Taxi system to take you to Disney Springs. A princess themed room is also another reason and let's not leave out the huge 3.5 Acre water play area complete with a 95 foot water slide and huge Hot Tub for the adults.

Overview of the Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside in Orlando

Stately Mansions line the Disney Port Orleans Riverside Resort as you take the water taxi to Disney Springs. As you enter the main lobby, the style is that of an elegant, southern plantation while the check-in area will remind you of a large ballroom. The Riverside Resort is very large and broken up in to smaller sections of Mansion looking accommodations of comfortable cottage styles. The whole resort is surrounded by a lush environment with perfectly groomed trees and landscaping adding to the charm of the south. When you stay at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort, you also have full access to all of the fun at the Disney World Port Orleans French Quarter Resort.


There are many options to choose from when staying in one of the Guestrooms at the Disney Port Orleans Riverside Resort. The accommodations are broken up in to multiple sections with two distinct themes; Mansions in the Magnolia Grove or Cottages at the Alligator Bayou. Rooms are the same size no matter what you select but they styling is very different. If you are looking to give your kids a more extravagant experience, you might consider getting one of the Royal Guest Rooms. Beauty and the Beast is what I think of when I see these rooms with royal blue trimmings and splendid carpets add to the overall charm of these rooms. The courtyards and grounds are immaculate around the entire property and you will want to take some time just to sit and take in your surroundings for a while. Of course, free WiFi covers the entire Resort and each of the rooms.

Things to do

The most prominent activity in the Port Orleans Riverside Resort would have to be Ol’ Man Island situated on an island in the middle of the Resort. This 3.5 Acre water play area has something for everyone and can only be accessed by one of 3 bridges spanning from the mainland to the island. Added for hours of fun the 95 foot water slide is built in to the Old Mill theme and kids will splash down time and time again. It is a good thing there is a large Hot Tub nearby and the Muddy Rivers pool bar for the adults. There is something fun for all ages. Since this resort is so large, each of the sections have their own, more quiet pool to get away from the excitement if needed. In the evening, the family can gather together and take in a movie together. Other fun can be had at the huge arcade at the main building or take a bike and ride along the paths to see the resort views. Take plenty of pictures.


A couple of different options are available to dine at Port Orleans Riverside Resort in Orlando. From the quick-service walk up options at the Riverside Mill Food Court to the sit down, table service at the Boatwright’s Dining Hall, whatever you are looking for you will find at this resort.

Disney World Port Orleans French Quarter Resort Reviews


At an almost 90% above average rating, most guests love the Port Orleans French Quarter in Disney World. So many visitors just love the style and the beauty of the grounds feeling like they have taken a portal to New Orleans. Staff is very friendly. Since this resort is a little smaller than some of the other Disney World Resorts, it does lend itself to less walking to get where you need to be. Having the Water Taxi service and Buses made it simple to get where you wanted to be.


There are very few below average reviews but some of the guests did not like the size of the resort, being a little on the small side. Others found that the food court dining was crowded. A few guests felt that the buses took a little longer to pick up. It has also been mentioned that the some of the rooms need some updating and were a little dusty.
