    I booked AoA for our trip but got “pixiedusted” by an email offer and got a free upgrade to port Orleans riverside royal guest room. I’m excited about the nicer resort, but I’m worried that we will not have access to the Skyliner. Is the upgrade worth it?

    Hi there Delilah, Welcome back to planDisney! Congrats on your upgrade! My family and I were also Pixie Dusted from a Little Mermaid Suite to a Cars Suite back in October when we stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort! Isn't it just the best?!

    Though Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is not a Resort Hotel featuring a Disney Skyliner station, I can assure you it is definitely worth the upgrade! The Louisiana inspired hospitality of Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside will completely charm you throughout your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    If you're a foodie like me, you'll be happy to know that southern specialties and classic American eats are the focus of the cuisine at Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. There are both table service and quick service dining options, as well as some fun bars and lounges. Boatwright's Dining Hall is my go to! The Southern and Cajun inspired menu is perfectly themed to its setting, and the Jambalaya is always a hit!

    If you have little ones in your party, they'll love making a splash at Ol’ Man Island! Though it’s themed as an abandoned sawmill, this 3.5 acre water area features a 95-foot waterslide, a whirlpool, and a kiddie pool!

    Lastly, Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides are a truly unique offering at Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and my favorite amenity the resort offers! You’ll board your carriage for a 25-minute ride at the Riverside Levee Marina at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside. Carriages fit up to 4 adults (or 2 adults and 3 small children).

    Delilah, I hope you find this information helpful. I'm thrilled you and your family will get to experience one of my favorite resorts. Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
