Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida is the world’s number one tourist destination, welcoming tens of millions of visitors every year. Many of those visitors want to stay right in the heart of the magic, so Disney provides more than twenty resort hotels within its 47 square mile boundary.
These range from economy venues such as the Value All Star Resorts up to the deluxe (and expensive!) Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The middle ground is served by a series of ‘Moderate’ resorts which offer more comfort and amenities than the Values, but still at a reasonably affordable price.
Widely regarded as the best of these Moderate resorts is the twin complex of Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter. Nestled along the banks of the Disney-created Sassagoula River, these two resort hotels are probably the best themed, and certainly the most picturesque, places to stay within Walt Disney World without breaking the bank.
Completely unofficial and unbiased, PortOrleans.org can provide you with absolutely everything you need to know for your stay at either of these resorts. The drop-down menus at the top of the page will help you navigate around the site, but here are some quick shourtcuts to the most popular pages in the meantime. Have a magical day!
