    Hi, I appreciate the time you folks spend answering these questions. We're (middle age couple)coming for trip #29 11/15-11/20. We're staying for the first time in POR. We have the most economical room. I'm curious to know what building we should request?

    Hi Phil,

    Thank you for asking us a question, we all love helping everyone plan their trips :-)

    I've stayed at Port Orleans Riverside several times and my family loves it there, it's a very pretty resort with a fantastic food court and the water taxi to Downtown Disney is a great perk. Which building you request really depends on what is important to you and which style of room you like. You can view lots of photos and information, including a map, at the fantastic website

    You'll see that the resort is split into 2 distinct sections; Magnolia Bend which resembles big Mansion Houses and Alligator Bayou which have a very rustic feel to them. Once you decide which you prefer, I personally like the Mansion houses better, you can then choose your building. POR is a rather large resort so if you'd prefer to be close to the main building where the restaurants are then I would recommend you request buildings 14, 15 or 18 in the Alligator Bayou or 80 or 85 in Magnolia Bend. If you'd like a quieter room and you don't mind a walk, and to be honest the furthest building is only about a 10 minute walk away, or you have a car then any of the outer buildings would be ideal.

    You can make your requests about 3 days prior to your arrival either by faxing 407-934-5777 or calling 407-934-6000.

    Have a great trip,
