Where to Stay Wednesday – Port Orleans Riverside
This moderate resort delivers you right to the Louisiana Bayou along the Sassagoula River…and just a hop, skip and a jump away from Port Orleans French Quarter where the Mardi Gras celebration lasts 365 days a year! You really do get the best of both worlds when staying at this resort! From the white-column mansions to the backwoods cottages of Port Orleans Riverside, you can’t help the feeling that is evoked of being right there in rural Louisiana. And just a short walk away alongside the Sassagoula River is Port Orleans French Quarter where you can be surrounded by the feel of Mardi Gras while you dine on southern favorites!
5 top reasons why I love this resort:
1. I feel so happy!
You can’t help but feel alive and caught up in this amazing resort! The ambiance is perfect for those that love the south…or for those that didn’t even know that they do! You WILL fall in love with this resort! From a 35-foot water wheel, to beautiful arches and gazebos, to stately fountains…you will truly feel like you are on the set of Steel Magnolias while exploring this resort. This resort is so romantic too! You can simply take a stroll around, catch the boat to Disney Springs giving you a chance to see it all from the water, or even take a horse carriage ride around the resort! My heart is melting just thinking about all of the possibilities.
2. The food!
This resort has one of my favorite food courts, the Riverside Mill Food Court, complete with a made to order pasta station! Looking to be waited on with some southern hospitality? Look no further than Boatwright’s Dining Hall located right in the heart of the resort. Here you can enjoy dinner in what feels like a rustic shipyard warehouse and dine on N’awlins favorites! And just down the river you can enjoy gumbo, jambalaya and beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter!
3. Yehaa Bob!!
You absolutely cannot beat the nighttime entertainment offered at this resort! It is the best! And you can have kids, in a bar? YES! The River Roost Lounge is a very kid friendly establishment where the entire family can enjoy comedy, music…and don’t be surprised if Yehaa Bob has you up and moving around the room! This is a perfect night of entertainment for all located right at the resort!
4. Royal Guest Rooms!
This is the only resort where you can truly live like royalty! These rooms are regal down to every little detail. You will see Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen and other Disney Princesses and Princes displayed in this room. And the magical headboards!! Let’s just book your next stay here. I don’t want to ruin the surprise!
5. Pool hopping!
Yes, you heard me correctly! When you stay at Riverside you can pool hop to French Quarter! Enjoy ‘Ol Man Island on a 3.5 acre island with a saw mill waterslide, kids pool, playground, hot tub and a catch and release fishing hole while at Port Orleans Riverside! Want to experience the giant sea serpent water slide, complete with King Neptune, and slide down his tongue in the Doubloon Lagoon Pool? Head on over to Port Orleans French Quarter. Pool hopping is allowed between these two resorts!
