    We are at Disney from Saturday to Saturday. We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside is there a gym I can go to relatively close with free weights?

    Hey there, Jacob!

    Welcome to planDisney. We’re so glad you decided to bring us your fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! It sounds like you’re gearing up for an exciting trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth. As a fellow fitness enthusiast, I can understand your desire to keep on moving, even during vacation! I’d be happy to help you prepare for a trip filled with a healthy dose of magic.

    Jacob, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside is one of my family’s all-time favorite Disney Resort hotels. Its proximity to Magic Kingdom Park and ease of access via watercraft to Disney Springs paired with its quiet and cozy ambiance make it a very special place to stay while enjoying a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Unfortunately, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside does not feature a gym on-site. However, I’m happy to inform you that you can still get active during your stay! This Resort hotel offers one of the most picturesque jogging trails on property. The path winds its way along the scenic Sassagoula River and wraps around Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter. Therefore, while you won’t have access to strength equipment during your visit, you’ll be able to focus on cardio training between runs on the jogging path and laps in one of the quiet pools on property!

    I understand this may not have been the news you were hoping for, Jacob. However, I hope you’re still able to enjoy your stay at the beautiful and charming Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside! Once your exercise is over, I recommend stopping by Scat Cat’s Club - Café at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter for a fresh, warm Mickey-shaped beignet. In my opinion, it makes for the breakfast of champions after an enchanting exercise-filled morning!

    Jacob, I hope you’ve found this information helpful as you gear up for your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Feel free to stop back by planDisney again anytime with any additional questions you might have before or during your trip. We’re here to help you enjoy every moment of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See ya real soon,
