Walt Disney World Port Orleans Riverside Review

Port Orleans Riverside Review

When it comes to a place to lay your head after a hard day at the theme parks Walt Disney World has a lot of choices. Those choices range from value resorts (the cheapest) to deluxe villas (the most expensive.) In the middle you find the moderate resorts. One of those moderates is Port Orleans Riverside.

Resort Overview

All Disney resort hotels are themed but some are themed better than others. Port Orleans Riverside is definitely one of the better themed resorts. Designed to resemble a riverside town during the early 1800’s, Port Orleans Riverside is so well done that it easy to forget you are only minutes away from the world’s busiest theme parks.

magicalvacationsbyme-logoThe two offers are the Stay, Play and Dine plan and the room discount. Details below.

All three must be purchased to qualify for the discount. Offer valid on dates between December 14th-20th and again between January 4th to March 7th.

Room Discount

The second offer is a straight room discount. The discount is up to 30% for Deluxe resorts. Moderate and Value resorts are up to 25% and 20% respectively. This offer valid on trips from January 5th to March 28th.
