Come take the ultimate tour of Port Orleans Riverside at Walt Disney World. This is my family’s favorite resort!
Port Orleans Riverside is a laid back Southern-themed resort with plenty to offer Disney guests. It features Fulton’s General Store, Medicine Show Arcade, Bike Rentals, Jogging Path, Boat Services to Disney Springs, a Playground, Fishing, Restaurants and six Pools! Port Orleans Riverside is located near Epcot Center and Disney Springs. If that is not enough, enjoy Movies under the stars, horse drawn Carriage rides, or a Campfire on de’ Bayou.
Port Orleans Riverside offers Royal Guest Rooms for those looking for a Princess themed room. All the other rooms offer a mixture of beds and views, but they all include a Child-Size Pull Down bed in the room.
Boatwright’s Dining Hall
A table service restaurant featuring a New Orleans menu! Jambalaya, Fried Chicken and Shrimp and Grits are just a few of their offerings at the deep south restaurant. Dinner Only.
Riverside Mill Food Court
I think this might be one best quick service restaurants around. My boys always talk about eating here every trip. They have New Orleans inspired menu for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
Entertainment and laughter for the whole family by Yehaa Bob. A lounge to sit down and relax after a long day in the parks! Burgers, Fish and Chips along with appetizers along with a full bar.
Pools and Bar

My family and I love to travel. We have been fortunate enough to live in 10 different states and Europe in our journey together over the last 27 years. From the rivers of Alaska, to the castles of Germany and the surf of Hawaii, we have gotten to experience a great deal with every move. On top of that, we are Disney and Universal fanatics! I can use my experience to help your family with any travel arrangements, from the perfect resort, daily itineraries and ticketing options.
