    Hello! We are staying at Port Orleans - Riverside starting 12/2. I noticed at online check-in we can update our preference room type. Any recommendations? Top floor? Main floor? Corner room? Thank you!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, April!

    You are going to absolutely LOVE your stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside! Upon check-in, my son and I were blown away by the stunning charm of this gorgeous resort. Truly, the beautiful design and lovely landscaping help to make this resort so relaxing, you'll be glad to have such a great place to come home to after a day in the parks.

    On our last visit, we stayed in a mansion-style building in Magnolia Bend, #85, which was the perfect location. A resort bus stop is located right across the parking lot to the rear of the building, and Ol' Man Island, with its walkway to all of the shopping and dining conveniences of the main building, is directly across Sassagoula River in front. We loved our first floor room, as it made trips in and out super-convenient. When you get to the resort, should you have any additional room location requests, Cast Members will be happy to help fulfill those requests, should such a room be available at that time.

    During your stay at this great resort, be sure to look into a carriage ride, a romantic Holiday Sleigh Ride, enjoy a campfire on de' Bayou, make an Advanced Dining Reservation for the popular Table-Service restaurant Boatwright's Dining Hall and visit River Roost for a beverage when entertainer YeHaa Bob Jackson is scheduled to perform.

    Have magical stay, April!
