    What is the best section at POR? When it reopens we will be getting a standard room. Which section should we request? We want to be close to transportation and not have a bunch of bus stops before our after ours.

    Howdy Nancy!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    I love Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside!  This resort hotel is a personal favorite!  I have stayed in the Alligator Bayou section and the mansions of Magnolia Bend!  We have also enjoyed the fun experience of staying in a Royal Guest Room!  You will experience the same amount of stops when you stay at all of these locations, but I recommend staying in the Alligator Bayou area!  We love the Alligator Bayou area because it is a lovely walk through lush grounds as you go to and from your room.  I always ask for a room in the Alligator Bayou in the preferred section or a room just outside of the preferred area.  This will allow you proximity to dining, shopping, transportation, the main pool, and so much more!  All rooms at this beautiful resort hotel are a short walk through the bayou or a beautiful stroll through lush grass and bridges!  Whichever section you decide to stay in, I know you will make memories to last a lifetime!

    With all the changes that the Walt Disney World Resort is undertaking to keep guests safe at this time, I recommend checking the “Returning to a World of Magic” site!  This site will keep you informed of all the changes as the phased re-opening continues!

    To stay up-to-date on everything to do and see during your next visit, check out the Disney Parks Blog!  As resorts resume operation, you can view all availability on the Walt Disney World website!  If you have any more questions as you continue to plan your visit to Neverland, please come back to planDisney, Nancy!  We are always here to help you find answers to your questions or give you advice from our experiences!

    See Ya Real Soon,
