    Hi! Considering Port Orleans Riverside for upcoming trip with DH, DS (6) and DS (10) for their bdays. Interested in Royal Room, but am concerned those rooms are far away from dining, main pool and bus. Would we be better in a Preferred room? Thanks!

    Greetings, Bree, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for your loyalty.

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside is a wonderful choice of resort hotels. You'll be immersed in the romance of rural Louisiana walking through perfectly manicured landscapes, surrounded by the grand white-column mansions and adorable backwoods cottages. As a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you'll bask and enjoy all the unique amenities. Disney's Magical Express complimentary transportation to and from your Disney Resort hotel and Orlando International Airport is convenient, be sure to look for that option during your online booking process.

    Preferred Rooms at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside are indeed closer to the main building and South Depot Bus stop. Buildings offering Preferred Rooms at this resort hotel are numbers 14, 15, 18 and 27.

    The Royal Guest Rooms are not that far from the main building. In fact, they are just a few minutes away over the footbridge. These royally appointed rooms will captivate you with the level of attention to detail that will keep you looking for touches throughout your entire stay. We love the spectacular interactive headboards.

    Deciding on location depends solely on your needs, preferences and budget. No matter what you decide you will not be disappointed with this splendid resort hotel.

    May I direct you to Disney's Magic Your Way Vacation Package including resort, theme park tickets and a choice of Disney Dining package.

    Best Disney Wishes!
