    Hi I will be staying in DPOR riverside in October. I wanted to know are the Royal guest rooms closer to the pool and restaurants? Thanks!

    Hello, Geraldine and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort is such a perfect choice of Disney Resort hotels, and I'm sure you'll enjoy the grand white-column mansions of elegant Magnolia Bend. The Royal Guest Rooms are housed in two buildings, Oak Manor and Parterre Place which are conveniently located close to "Sassagoula Steamboat Company" which is the main building housing guest services, the food court, main restaurant, lounge and gift shop. "Ol' Man Island" featuring the main pool is close to the Sassagoula Steamboat Company and a bit of a walk from The Royal Guest Rooms.

    Oak Manor and Parterre Place have their own stately pool in between, with a large self-serve laundry room nearby. The pool is large and is surrounded by ample loungers, tables, chairs and umbrellas for your comfort.

    My Disney Experience is the perfect planning tool once you are booked. Log in with your confirmation number and begin customizing all your plans including, Disney Dining Reservations, FastPass+ selections, and personalizing MagicBands.

    Be sure to complete your Online Resort Check-In 60-days in advance as a Disney Resort Guest and book Disney's Magical Express complimentary transportation to and from Walt Disney World Resort and Orlando International Airport.

    Geraldine, I hope this information is helpful and we look forward to assisting you with your plans in the near future.
