    We, a family of 4, are planning a trip next summer and are looking to stay at the Port Orleans Riverside. What section do you recommend to stay in? Cleanliness, size & convienience! Are they remodelling any with queen beds before then? Thanks

    There isn't word on exactly when the refurbishments at Port Orleans Riverside will be complete, Marianne.  That said, you can expect some new royal touches in some of the resort rooms there by March 2012.  As for which section I personally recommend, I'm a fan of the cozy charm afforded to guests in the Alligator Bayou section of the resort.  We've stayed in both sections and while I found the Magnolia Bend section to be sufficient, I much prefer the bayou.  The sizes of standard rooms in both sections is the same, but the Alligator Bayou rooms do offer access to the main building without having to cross the Sassagoula River bridges; Magnolia Bend rooms do not.  We stayed in building 18 (Alligator Bayou section) during a stay a few years back and found that it was convenient to everything!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
