    booked a room at port orleans riverside preferred handicap 1k 1Qn what bldg would you suggest to stay in that would be closest to bus stop?

    Hello, Michele,

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside has been a family favorite of ours for many years. I think it has some of the loveliest landscaping of all the Disney resorts, especially in the Alligator Bayou section. Within that area, the preferred rooms are in buildings 14, 15, 18, and 27.  All of those buildings are ideally located and not too far from a bus stop. However, building 15 is the closest of those four buildings to the main bus stop. If you did book a river view, buildings 14, 18, and 27 will be your choices with 14 being the closest to the bus stop then 18 then 27. We were always very happy when we stayed in any of those four buildings. Even if you don't have a river view, the path that runs along the Sassagoula River is so pretty and peaceful.

    If you have a chance, you may want to think about spending an evening at the River Roost Lounge to see the antics and entertainment of Yehaa Bob; he is an absolute hoot for families! You can check out his schedule at

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help!  -Kara
