    Hi. This year we are staying at the Port Orleans-Riverside Resort. My question is can we request to stay in a resort room closest to the main pool and restaurants? last year we had a pretty long walk back and forth this yr. we are wishing to be closer.

    Hi Pete!

    Great choice! Disney's Port Orleans Riverside is one of my favorite resorts! There are many room options available at this resort. The closest building to the Sassagoula Steamboat Company building (which is where the Riverside Mill food court and Boatwright's Dining Hall are located) is building 14, in the section called Alligator Bayou. If you wish to request this area you will need to ensure that you reserve a "preferred room".  Once you make your reservation, you will be able to request this particular building as well when you do your on-line check via your My Disney Experience Account

    Did you know?
    :  The Walt Disney World Resort offers several dining plans to Guests staying at a Disney Resort. For more information, please visit: Disney Dining Plans. Also, there is currently a special offer available which would include a free dining plan. That is a real money saver so be sure to check it out!
    It has been a real pleasure assisting you! 

    Happy Planning!
