    at Riverside Resort, which room category is closest to the hotel lobby, please? I'm planning to visit during August.

    Greetings Kathy, 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney again. We are thrilled you are back planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    My sister and I stayed at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside last fall and loved it. The grounds of the resort are so lush and beautiful and there were so many recreational activities.

    If you want to be closest to dining, shopping and transportation, you will want to book a Preferred Room. These rooms may have a landscaping, courtyard, garden or bayou view, but are all closer in proximity to the main area of the resort.

    Since you are visiting in August, I suggest the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE®. This EPCOT festival usually begins in late summer and is one of my favorites. Global Marketplaces appear throughout World Showcase and offer delectable dishes and drinks. There are also concerts, live entertainment and more ways to celebrate this culinary explosion. 

    Happy planning, Kathy! Please let us know if you have any more planning questions prior to your August visit.

    Magical Wishes,
