Overview

Southern mansions and bayou accommodations line the Sassagoula River at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort. Delight in a picturesque setting that evokes the romance of rural Louisiana of the late 1800’s. This charming Southern-style resort is well positioned just a stone’s throw from Disney Springs and Epcot and on days off from the parks, there are six swimming pools to enjoy including Ol’ Man Island, a 3.5-acre refuge with a swimmin’ hole, a fishin’ hole and a 95 foot-long rustic waterslide built into the millwork. Bike and boat rentals are available onsite and the 1.6km jogging trail along the Sassagoula River provides a great opportunity for a stroll with the family.

Why we love it

The theming is grand and classical, yet still very Disney at the same time. Aside from all the wonderful dining and leisure experiences that this Moderate Hotel offers, one of our absolute favourite things has to be the decor of the rooms. The very special Disney princess themed Royal Guest Rooms really add a little extra magic to your holiday.
