    hi Just wondering if you know how long the walk is from the royal guess room river view to the main building at port Orleans riverside resort??

    Well hello there Mike, I'd like to wish you a warm Canadian welcome back to planDisney!

    There's something really special about staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, from the hustle and bustle by the water wheel on the waterfront and the chance to spot some rare Character Friends dropping by for a visit to the sleepy sounds of the gurgling fountains after the sun sets on this beautiful resort. The regal touches found within the Royal Guest Rooms are most certainly Princess Tiana-approved as you look out past the cast-iron railings to gaze at the river beyond, 

    Since the Royal Guest Rooms are located in the section of the resort named Magnolia Bend, you'll find that the walk itself can take no more than a few minutes as you traverse the bridge over the Sassagoula River located just between the Oak Manor and Parterre Place mansion buildings. In my personal experience, the longest part tends to be making our way over and around the winding exterior corridors to use the central elevators, so be sure to take note of the nearest staircases as you head over to the main Sassagoula Steamboat Company to find the Front Desk, lobby and dining establishments such as Boatwright's Dining Hall and the Riverside Mill Food Court. (I once dashed over from Oak Manor Lawn to Fulton's General Store to make a quick purchase and it took me less than 5 minutes!)

    During your stay, I highly recommend taking advantage of the bike rentals here as it's definitely one of the Disney Resort Hotels that provide ample space to ride with stunning waterfront views as you breeze past beneath the boughs of Spanish moss hanging in the trees overhead. Just be mindful of the Horse-Drawn Carriages that are very popular and can often be found from around sunset and into the evening! We're always happy to have you back here at planDisney Mike - don't hesitate to come back again for any more tips or tricks before your next stay.

    Be sure to have a beignet for me over at the French Quarter!
