    Hello, Christina,

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside was our go-to resort for our family for many years, and I think it has some of the loveliest views throughout all of Walt Disney World.  However, I've found that many of the favorite views can vary from person to person, so you might find it actually easiest to see what the actual views are for yourself to make the decision about which is the best view for your family.  

    To do this, I would visit the independent website touringplans.com and do a search for Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Once there, there is an extensive review of the resort, and the bottom part of the article is what you are looking for as there are many photos of what the views are, especially the ones to avoid.  You can also explore other views by clicking on Try Our Exclusive Room Finder at the very top of the article. With this feature, you can virtually see a view from nearly every single room at the resort to see what you like best. I think by doing exploring this link, you'll be better informed about a view you'd like to have. 

    Your trip is nearly here, so I suspect your smile is getting bigger and bigger each day!  May you trip be a magical one!  -Kara
