    Hi, I am going to be staying at Port Orleans Riverside In August 2012. I was wondering if a person did not feel like paying for the preferred rooms what would be the best building (closest to the main building) to stay in.

    Hi Susan!

         The Port Orleans family of resorts are my favorite in the Moderate category!  Would you believe that Port Orleans Riverside actually only has Preferred rooms in the Alligator Bayou section?  The Magnolia Bend, or mansion area, is divided into views, rather than Preferred and Standard.  If you are looking for the closest rooms to the lobby/food court area, I would request a room in either Acadian House or Magnolia Terrace.  Of course, if you would rather stay in the Alligator Bayou section, I would request a standard room in Building 16.  Have a fabulous vacation!

    Much pixie dust,
