    Hello Moms and Dads! Staying at PORS in May with my 10 yr old son,his birthday and 3 yr old daughter, her 1st trip! Is this resort kid friendly? I'll also have my mom with us so size and transportation is a concern too. Is it convenient?:

    Hi Cheryl,

    It sounds like you will be doing a lot of celebrating at your trip with a  birthday and first trip for your daughter; how great!  Port Orleans Riverside has been a family favorite of ours for many years, and one that our children enjoyed.  

    It offers bike rentals, horse-drawn carriage rides, an arcade, fishing, 6 pools, a playground and watercraft rental.  Shopping at Downtown Disney is quite convenient by simply catching a scenic boat ride through the Sassagoula River. And of course, there are 4 amazing Walt Disney World parks that are just a bus ride away! And with the current renovations going on in the rooms, I think you'll find it a great choice.

    It is a large resort, so I'd encourage you to make a room request for building #14 with buildings #15 and #18 as back-up choices. These buildings are close to the main building where food/shopping is located as well as one of the bus stops.  For more information on making requests, you can click here. The phone number for the resort is 407-934-6000.

    While you are waiting, you may enjoy exploring  Please let us know if we can help again.
