Positive Reviews

Immaculately kept

Many visitors have commented about the immaculately kept rooms and surrounding gardens at Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside. The themed Disney rooms provide that "magic" feeling, while the tranquility of the beautiful gardens adds that special touch.

Complimentary transport

Guests who do not have their own transport do not need to worry about getting around. The hotel provides a complimentary airport shuttle, and also a limo service that ferry's guests between the hotel and town. This is particularly convenient for guests who do not wish to have the stress of driving around while on vacation.

Beyond accommodation staff

There have been reports from visitors about the amazingly accommodating staff. Whether you need extra towels and toiletries, or need to upgrade a room, nothing seems too much. One guest who left all her travel documents at the hotel, was surprised to see just how much trouble management went to, to get these documents back to her before her flight left.

Negative Reviews

Limited food choices

Although there are a variety of on-site food outlets, visitors feel that the main restaurant does not offer a large enough choice of dishes. Some visitors have suggested that a healthier array of cuisine should be available for children and adults.

It's a distance to walk

It's an advantage if you are a traveler who loves to do a great deal of walking on a daily basis. There have been some visitors who have complained about the distance from the car park to the hotel. There are others who don't enjoy the walk in-between the different swimming pools. Nonetheless, there are many exciting amenities to choose from.

Early visits from housekeeping

Be careful if you like to sleep-in in the morning. Housekeeping can sometimes visit really early. If you miss them, you will be left to tidy up yourself. However, if you make a special request for housekeeping to return later, they will do so with a smile.
