    Hi- Has anyone stayed at the Disney Port Orleans Resort? How is this resort and the royal rooms? I have two children ages 2 and 3 1/2. Will staying at a resort at downtown Disney be a concern or will travel to and from the parks be to far away?

    Hi there Yelany,

    I am so happy to help you with this question!  Port Orleans Riverside is probably my favorite Walt Disney World "moderate" level resort.  I have a young daughter and I absolutely love the laid-back, southern atmosphere.  There are plenty of areas for her to run around and play, the pool is just amazing, and the Royal Rooms are practically perfect for any little princess. 

    The Royal Rooms feature theming based on the Princess and the Frog movie and your daughter will love all of the magical touches that can be found in every corner of the room.  The illuminated headboards, gifts that were given to Tiana by fellow Disney Princesses, and so much more!  Definitely a room fit for any royalty!  PLUS, you'll be able to take advantage of all of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest perks including Extra Magic Hours, The Disney Dining Plan, and Disney World Transportation to and from the parks.  Nothing beats a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, so this would definitely be my top suggestion.  And this is, in my opinion, the #1 choice of hotel in this pricing category! 

    The Downtown Disney area hotels are nice as well and are not too far from the resorts.  Many guests do choose this option for accommodations, but the convenience of staying at a Disney property resort can't be beat.  Especially with little kids.  You'll be so close, you can hop on a bus and sneak back for nap times, pool fun, etc!

    Best Wishes,
