Review: Port Orleans Riverside Resort

This is one of our favorite places to stay.  As a "moderate" Disney resort, the rates are very reasonable.  Combined with the theming and amenities, the value is excellent.  The grounds are beautiful, there are great non-theme park entertainment choices, and multiple dining options.  Plus, as a family of five, this moderate resort will accommodate us in one room!

Pictures from our stay in June 2017
Tabitha and I stayed here during WDW Marathon weekend in January of 2016. We did not have park tickets, but were never bored!  That was the first time that we saw YeeHaa Bob  perform in the lounge (If I say any more about Bob, my wife might get jealous) and I was an instant fan!  During the day, you can fish, go on a horse-drawn carriage ride, rent a surrey bike, lay in a hammock, or just walk around and view the wildlife.  We saw an otter walking down the sidewalk on our last trip!  If all of that isn't enough, you can take a quick boat ride down to Disney Springs for even more entertainment and shopping.
The food court has a variety of stations with their own unique offerings.  We enjoyed the pasta station, particularly the "create your own" pasta dish, and the carving station was also a hit.  If you want a more traditional dining experience, Boatwright's Dining Hall provides a "sit down" experience (menu).  We have not tried it, but it looks and smells very good!
As I said above, one of the reasons that we love this resort is the ability to sleep five in a room.  You can see some pictures of the pull-down bed in the link below.  It is tight, but very doable.  The room is well themed, has a mini-fridge and mini-coffeemaker (neither option is available in a value resort room).  The dual sinks are great for being efficient in the morning.
