    Staying at POR again this year.Last year when we stayed there our room was far from the main pool and loby. What are the best buildings to ask for?We are a family of 5.

    Hi Christine!
    Port Orleans Riverside is my absolute favorite "moderate" resort on Disney property. Love the theming, the food court, the pool complex, YeeHa Bob...everything!
    But you're's a huge resort and if you're staying in the outer reaches of Alligator Bayou or Magnolia Bend, it can be a 12 minute walk or so to the pool or food court.
    I recommend Buildings 14-18 in the Alligator Bayou section or Buildings 95 or 90 in the Magnolia Bend section. Although these buildings cannot be guaranteed, I recommend making the request both at the time of your reservation and upon check-in.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical trip!! :)
