    Hi Elizabeth!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It is so great to hear from you again.

    Disney’s Port Orleans Resort– Riverside is a beautiful and quaint resort. As a mom with a family of five, this Resort hotel is perfect for our family size. I do highly recommend reserving a Preferred Room if possible. The preferred rooms are close to Sassagoula Steamboat Company, Dining, Shopping, and Transportation. My kids love spending time at the pool, and we enjoy taking an early morning stroll over to Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter for beignets. If time allows, consider taking a Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride.

    To have the flexibility of purchasing the number of tickets that you would like and the different amount of days, I wouldn’t recommend booking a package. When I need to purchase Theme Park Tickets with a different amount of days on them, I make sure to book a “room-only” Resort reservation. I can then choose the tickets that work best for my family. Be sure to look for special offers as they are sometimes offered for tickets! With any Resort hotel reservation, you will be able to choose MagicBands to use during your stay! You also can take advantage of Disney’s Magical Express.

    I hope that you and your family have the most magical time!
