Ok, final thoughts on Port Orleans Riverside. Beautiful exterior! Wonderfully themed room! … but the “view” from the room is useless. Because there’s no private balcony, and your window is a facing a walkway(even on the 2nd floor) so unless ya like randos looking in: the blinds stay shut, negating the room view.
Not that I got the room I requested anyway. Got “closeish” though. My wants were 2nd floor and I got that, so I’m good.
The bus stop order is horrid. The main lobby is the last stop. WHY?! Added easily 10-15 minutes into the trip time every time for me.
Their mousekeeping crew is a bit hot or miss it seems. They were real slow getting to the room in the day (went back as late as 3pm and it still wasn’t clean yet the one day). And the coffee supplies either left nothing or a lot or left coffee but no fixings. Strange.
The walk from the room to the lobby is short, so that was great.
The dining there is not recommended, at least the quick service breakfast. I got a breakfast burger yesterday and it had some sauce in it that caused me to only be able to take 2 bites. The bagels (my replacement alternative) wasn’t so much a bagel as it was a bagel-shaped roll. Passable, but that’s as far as I’d give it.
Overall, if you have time to actually relax and not go at 1000miles a second at wdw, Riverside would be a great resort… just plan to eat st Disney springs.
