    i have 5 guests wanting to stay at port orleans riverside. Do i need to book a preferred room or are all the 5 person rooms in the same place. How much will we have to walk to bus, Husband had a stoke last year.

    Rooms in the Alligator Bayou section of Port Orleans Riverside can sleep five guests, including one guest on a small trundle that pulls out from under the bed.  The trundles are small, and will really only comfortably sleep a young child.  That said, it is not necessary to book a preferred room as your party will automatically be assigned a room that will accommodate all of the registered guests. 

    All of the rooms are located within comfortable walking distance of a bus stop (roughly a five minute walk or so).  If you feel as though your husband would benefit from a wheelchair, you can certainly request one.  A limited number of wheelchairs are available at each Disney resort hotel.  You can get one by inquiring as to availability at check-in.  There is a $315 deposit, charged only if the wheelchair is not returned.  Availability is not guaranteed; if you wish to secure a wheelchair, your best bet is to rent one from a local company.  Have a great trip!

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
