Port Orleans Riverside is a moderate hotel and I thought it was a huge step up from the value resorts. The interior of the room was wonderfully themed. The pool and lobby areas were also well done. I recommend staying in a Disney resort, especially if you have kids, just for the Disney Magic. That includes all the little things they do that you don’t expect that add up to make your stay more fun and memorable, such as arranging the towels in the shapes of Mickey Mouse or other cute animals, giving you pins to wear that say “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Anniversary”, and much more! Port Orleans Riverside is connected to the Downtown Disney shopping area via a half hour boat ride down a winding river (relaxing but feels like it takes forever).
