I, my wife and 21yeRold daughter stayed here for 2 weeks from 26/11/18 to 10/12/18. The resort far met my expectations. Our room which was a pool view was a good size and had 2 queen sized beds. It had colour tv, fridge and ensuite bathroom. On reaching the resort we were welcomed by the reservations/check in staff who were very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The whole resort was well staffed and immaculately clean. We were on a dining plan consisting of 2 snacks and 2 quick service meals a day. Food was varied and choice great. You could have pasta, pizza made to your liking, a roast,burgers,, freshly made sandwiches and portions were large. We had unlimited drinks from the drinks machine in the resort both hot or cold which were available 24 hours a day. The resort was serviced by Disney transportation, which gave free transport to the parks and ran every 20 minutes. A waterboatalsowas available to take you to Disney Springs. I had.gone on this holiday for my daughters 21 birthday,but had not been looking forward to it as I do not flying. My opinion on flying has not changed but my thoughts of going to such a great place are on hold. Maybe we will go again in a few years. We elected not to have the maid make our bed everyday so received a welcome $130 dollar gift card to spend. This did not detract from the service we got. When new towels bedding, coffee,toilet rolls and toiletries were needed it took a phone call to house keeping. Within minutes these were delivered. On arriving and getting details of our allocated room we got lost. A friendly member of staff from the luggage department took us inabuggy to our room. When leaving we were taking our cases to check out another member of staff from luggage was passing and took our cases to reception. Great service is what you will get at Disney Orleans Resort. Well done Disney for giving us a magical holiday.

"Seasonal treat...."

One way we enjoy enhancing our immersion into the world of Disney, especially around Xmas; is to visit various of it's resorts. This is another great option. With its grand, yet elegant old-world Southern styling; this is already a beautiful resort to visit. Xmas dress up, just adds a bit more warmth and welcome. From the grand lobby, to the thoughtful landscape; this is a comfortable place in which to stroll and relax. Even Fulton's general store, with its rich woodwork, Goofy on a ladder, and Victorian dollhouse; is an inviting diversion. Experiencing the resorts in this way, gives one a pleasant respite; as well a greater perspective for considering if this is a good option for a future stay.

"From a Deluxe to a Moderate "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 13, 2018 NEW
We usually stay deluxe and honestly this moderate is breathtaking, we absolutely love it here. I highly recommend a stay here! Parking is close to rooms and they do have elevators, we stayed in the royal rooms which our 4 & 8yr girls loved.... and I(32) loved too. It's also just a short walk over to Port Orleans French Quater for freshly made Beignets. No regrets about staying here!

A beautiful resort in beautiful setting to walk/run about but was difficult to manage with wheelchair finding areas to leave our room. Many staircases as small as they were caused a bit of a situation until we figured out where to go to get from room to main area.

"Beautiful property"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 13, 2018 NEW
We stayed in Port Orleans Riverside for four nights. Beautiful property, quiet and relaxing. An oasis from all the crowd and craziness associated with Disney. Disney also accommodated our request for a room on the top floor in Oak Manor, which we appreciate. We stayed in a royal room, which is tastefully decorated in a way that both grownups and children would enjoy. Kids loved the headboards that generate mini fireworks. Our room is a short walking distance (and a beautiful walk) to both east depot as well as the food court. The food court is clean and efficient, with decent choices for kids (and grownups are generally happy as long as the kids are happy, so no complaints). The bus system also works well (if you manage your expectations a bit). It is not a taxi or Uber that comes on demand, but we have never waited more than 15min for a bus to and from the resort. Managing two youngsters by myself, being hassle free means a lot. Highly recommend as a choice for a moderate resort.
