A mile from Epcot

Inspired by the days of riverboats and Mark Twain, this Louisiana-style resort sprawls along waterways 1 mile from Epcot and 5 miles from the Magic Kingdom Park.

On the bayou

Guests at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside can wander shaded paths to six different pools—one is an old-time water hole with a water slide—or fish in a stocked fishing hole. Boats and bikes are also available for rent.

Rustic or manor living

Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside's more than 2,000 rooms fall into two themed areas: Magnolia Bend, a stately, antebellum mansion, or Alligator Bayou, with clusters of charmingly rustic, county-style lodges.
