    We are considering staying at Port Orleans- Riverside because we are a family of 5. Which buildings would you suggest that are close to the biggest pool, food court, etc. I love this panel!! Audra, NC

    Audra, thanks for such kind words!  We are having so much fun helping families plan their trips, so I'm thrilled we can help you with yours.  Port Orleans Riverside has become the resort choice for our family these last few years since it works within our budget and holds all 5 members.  I do want to point out that the additional bed for the 5th guest is a trundle bed that is stored under a bed; it fits a child fine, but would be small for an adult.  With that said, we always ask for building 14 first with building 18 as our second choice.  They have lovely views of the river and are close to the main building, bus stop, and Ol' Man Island (the building's main pool/playground area). We have had some trips when we weren't able to get the building we had hoped for, but I didn't hesitate to ask if we could be move if there was availability.  It never hurts to ask, and sometimes we were able to move!
