    This place is beautiful! The grounds are awesome, staff is very friendly, pools are great (though we preferred the "quiet pools" over the main one) and the Mill food court has some great food!

    Beautiful area for such a relatively cheap resort option. This is a snapshot taken with a cell phone. They're short on amenities and descent dining but it's hard to beat for the price within Disney.

    When you check in to ANY of the resorts ask the CONCIERGE for a list of OUTDOOR movies being shown each night of your stay! Really a blast!Free,& U will meet lovely people frm all corners of the world

    The food court area is very large with a great variety of food at relatively affordable prices. If you don't mind sharing drinks, get a refillable mug and use it all week long for your whole family!

    When getting of the bus from the parks make sure you know which depot they are stopping at. We stayed in Paterra Place and got of at the North Depot. Big mistake. Was a 15 minute walk to get back.

    A great resort with an amazing ambiance. Before you buy at the parks, make sure you visit Fulton's. You can find pretty much all you need and even things that the parks have ran out of.

    The resort is beautiful! I noticed the staff wasn't as attentive compare to other resorts. The plus was that when we checked in, we had a room available! Multiple pools, plus a boat to Disney Springs

    Nice resort. Very popular with families. Food court has good food. Staff is great. The biggest con is the bus transportation. They come once every twenty minutes during peak season. It was 45 mins.

    Take advantage of the ferryboat that runs to Downtown Disney. Better yet, rent a Sea Raycer boat with another person and enjoy a self-guided drive to Downtown Disney and back! Not too expensive.

    The staff at Disney's resorts and parks are accommodating and patient, even when dealing with exhausted tourists possessed with a sense of entitlement. When possible, give them a break and be nice.

    Love how some rooms can easily accommodate a family of 5 with this pull down bench. When it's up it's extra seating as a bench

    Make sure you get a room towards main lobby. Makes everything easier. Riverside is very nice, clean and has pretty grounds! Pools are nice too. Although wasn't a fan of quick service food inside.

    Get a room close to the main pool or lobby. Busses better up front. Great housekeeping, great food 5$ kids meals, piano bob in the bar. Only downside is it is a long bus to anywhere.

    Great hotel. We stayed in the mansions and loved it. The riverside mill even made thanksgiving dinner for those of us away from home! I would highly recommend staying here.

    Really like this resort but it tends to cater to the older crowd. We stayed in room 2821 and it was pretty quiet and about a 10 min walk to the main building.

    Fulton's General Store (right next to the lobby) is one of the best stores in all Disney area. No need to go from store to store looking around.

    If you're celebrating a special occasion, ask concierge for a pin! They have birthdays, anniversaries, etc. or will write what you are celebrating on the pin. Very neat.

    After 2 days here this is my favorite Disney resort. A very spacious, beautifully landscaped property. Even at full capacity, there's still a lot of areas for peace and quiet.

    Really nice resort, south depot is for the main building. WiFi is spotty in public areas and some buildings.

    Nice hotel but very large and spread out. If you are planning to spend a lot of time at the hotel this is the one. Lots to do here, otherwise pick another hotel.

    Very spread out, nicely themed. Ride the boat to Downtown Disney. The dining hall has made to order omelets, pizza, pasta, and salads.

    Large but quiet resort. Great transportation options throughout Disney World. They have a large food court and a sit down restaurant too.

    Be sure to tip your bellman or mousekeeper! You packed your bags, so you know how heavy they are. Your mousekeeper also cleans up after 16 other families (rooms). Be nice!

    Busses shmusses. This resort is almost perfectly positioned between all four parks and DTD. Drive to the parks and be at the gate faster than Disney transportation can get you there.

    Breakfast is crazy in the main cafeteria. Don't bother getting thd oranges they aren't good. Go figure Florida oranges. Bananas are. Also omelettes snc the line is short for healthy omelettes

    Great atmosphere if you want some peace and to be in a more nature themed setting. Jogging trail n pools are awesome.

    You can get a lot of the stuff you're looking for right in the Port Orleans store, without having to wrangle money, kids and stuff at the parks. So check the General Store before or after you go.

    The bounty breakfast makes me sad. It's one notch better than a McDonald's breakfast platter. The eggs are generic, the bacon anemic, etc. :(

    It is easy to get to the Disney World parks by bus, and you can take a free boat ride to Downtown Disney!

    Most nights at 9pm they show any range of Disney or Pixar classics! They have towels for you to sit on.

    Acadia rooms weren't that special. Boring decor of Steamboats. Very long walk to room and felt like a maze. I prefer the French Quarters of the two resorts. Better pool at FQ, more kid friendly.

    Forget the mansion pools. Walk to the island for the big pool and waterslide. And the Bar is there!

    The lunch selection is not so great at the dining hall. However the muffaletta flat bread is not too shabby. Otherwise, prepare to get price gouged for only so so food. :(

    Take the boat from Riverside to Downtown Disney at night. It's a nice way to start or finish the evening with that special someone!

    Huge resort, 1/4 mile walk to bus depot and 3/4 mile walk to main pool no lobby. All this after walking 16+ miles at the parks.

    Make sure your keys to the world are working before heading to your rooms. I got there at night and after a long walk to our rooms, we found out that the keys wouldn't work... Awful surprise

    Did you know that this resort was originally called Dixie Landings? I like that name better than Port Orleans Riverside.

    If you have a little one who can't swim, go to the boathouse right outside the lobby to rent a life-jacket for free.
