Originally known as Dixie Landings, this resort is themed to mimic the Mississippi bayou area of the old south. Port Orleans Riverside Resort is considered a moderate resort at Walt Disney World which means its pricing is in the mid-range as far as Walt Disney World Resorts go.
Along the way you can catch a glimpse of the Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs which is an amazing sight in itself. Boats for rent are also available and are a great way to relax and enjoy the beautiful river.
lodges that seem secluded and quiet.
Magnolia Bend has four different mansion houses that are each just a little bit different in appearance. The houses included are the Acadian House, Magnolia Terrace, Oak Manor, and Parterre Place. These mansion houses are two and three stories and are very elegant in appearance. The grounds are well kept and wrought iron fences can be found along some pathways. To get to the lobby area from Magnolia Bend you have to cross the Sassagoula River bridges but don’t be discouraged, it is a very pleasant and quiet stroll
The buildings of Alligator Bayou are a more rustic, backwoods cottage setting. The area features 16 smaller two-story Cajun-style buildings and is located in a much more wooded and shaded area then the Magnolia Bend section of the resort. The rooms include a trundle bed for one child so they technically sleep 5. There is a lack of elevators in Alligator Bayou so if you are unable to use stairs, either check with the front desk or request a room in the Magnolia Bend section. It is also a little easier to get lost in the Alligator Bayou section. Looking for gray concrete pathways will help you out in the event you get turned around.
The pools and water slide are open all day until usually around 10 pm. There is also an outdoor bar area called the Muddy Rivers Bar for adults to enjoy while they lounge around poolside.
