Port Orleans Riverside Resort Facts and Fun

Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside opened on February 2, 1992.

It took hundreds of people working over 48 hours to plant the live oak tree (Quercus virginiana) on Ol' Man Island. It is the largest living oak tree ever to be transplanted, with an original height of 55 feet and a weight of approximately 85 tons (including box and dirt).

The Fishin' Hole at Ol' Man Island is stocked with Catfish, Blue Gill and Bass. Fishing is catch and release only.

The cotton press featured at Riverside Mill Food Court is powered by an authentically reproduced 35-foot water wheel.

The partially built sailboat located inside Boatwright's Dining Hall is actually an authentic reproduction of the flat-bottom "New Orleans Lugger" that sailed the Mississippi River in the 1820s.

Sassagoula is the Indian word for "Mississippi."
