    Planning a trip soon for 2018, saw that Port Orleans Riverside only has elevators in the Magnolia Bend Mansion rooms...do you know if I will be able to request a river view? My husband needs the elevator and I love a water view! Thank you.

    Hi, Jacqueline! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is my favorite Moderate Disney Resort hotel! Make sure to stop by River Roost Lounge and sign along with the musical stylings of Yehaa Bob Jackson! There are elevators in the Magnolia Bend section, but in order to be guaranteed a River View, you must book that Room Category. Room Types at this Disney Resort hotel are:
    -Standard View
    -Garden View
    -Pool View
    -River View
    -Preferred Room (closest to dining and transportation)
    -Royal Guest Rooms (with Standard, Garden, River, and Pool view)
    If you complete the Online Check-In, you will most likely be able to request a section, but I would also suggest adding a note to your reservation that you require a room in a building with an elevator for medical reasons.
    No matter the view, I promise that you will be blown away by the beautiful grounds and laid-back atmosphere of your Disney Resort hotel. Have a magical time, and come visit us again real soon,
