Port Orleans Riverside Resort
Stately southern mansions, rustic bayou dwellings and ornate row-house
buildings are recalled at Disney's Port Orleans Resort, a 3,056-room
resort that features two "regions" -- the French Quarter and Riverside.
Southern architecture creates the setting for romance amid trees and
flowers. The resort offers a step back in time into the heart and soul
of the Southern region of our country.
The two themed regions -- totaling 3,056 rooms -- are connected by a
winding road and picturesque waterways to capture the mystery and romance
of a trip up the Mississippi River from New Orleans to Natchez. But in
the Walt Disney World geography, resort guests can travel by flat-bottomed
boats even farther "down river," to the shops and showplaces of Downtown
Disney -- including the Marketplace, West Side and Pleasure Island.
Disney's Port Orleans-Riverside is a 2,048-room fantasy vacation adventure
depicting the lifestyle of the great Old South with wandering paths,
picturesque waterways and the sounds of Cajun music. The resort includes
mansion-style accommodations and rustic retreats. Most rooms sleep four.
Rooms in Alligator Bayou offer a child sleeper and accommodate five.
The cuisine is varied, with a blend of Cajun specialties and American
fare at Boatwright's Dining Hall, a 195-seat family restaurant reminiscent
of a wooden shipbuilding yard. The Riverside Mill food court, which seats
450, features pizza, roasted chicken, spicy fried chicken, pasta dishes
and a bakery in a themed cotton-mill setting.
The focal point of Ol' Man Island is a 3.5-acre recreation complex with
pools, spa, fishing hole and playground. Bicycles and boats also are
available at Riverside Levee marina. The Muddy Rivers pool bar on Ol'
Man Island will quench the greatest thirst.
For a relaxing and entertaining evening, the River Roost lounge provides
the perfect atmosphere. Next door is Fulton's General Store featuring
a wide variety of sundries.
