    I'm a first timer staying at the PO Riverside with 5,8 and 1 year old boys. Is there a particular area of the hotel that we should request to stay in? It sounds like the hotel is pretty big with different style rooms. We are on a budget.

    Hi Maria!

    We LOVE Port Orleans - Riverside!  It's our absolute favorite resort!  We prefer rooms in the Magnolia Bend section, as they have that grand southern mansion look.  Rooms in the Oak Manor and Magnolia Terrace are a bit closer to all the resort amenities.  

    While the resort is big, it isn't overly big.  I think that the grandness of the resort is the beautiful trees you'll find all over the property.  We love it!  

    I hope your boys enjoy the pool and the playscape!  We tend to spend quite a bit of time there as well.  You can even take some time and fish at the Fishin' Hole!  Love, love, love Riverside!

    Have a magical vacation!
