The evening campfires commence at 5pm over the holiday period this year and the Movies Under the Stars will be screened at 7pm. These will both take place four days a week, with the other three days featuring indoor activities at 5pm instead.

There are lots of other free festive activities for all the family planned too, including live performers, character greetings (with Santa himself making an appearance at Riverside) on Christmas Eve, cookie decorating, a cast member gingerbread house competition, and a New Year's Eve Party at Riverside.

Trial Food and Cocktail Service at Muddy Rivers

Posted Sunday 16th November 2014, 11:55am (EST) by RiverRooster

Today food is available at Muddy Rivers [the pool bar on Ol' Man Island]. They are now offering a selection of sandwiches, including: Tuna Salad Croissant ($10.49); Cajun Turkey Club ($10.49); Muffeletta ($10.49); Ham & Cheese Croissant ($9.99); Kid's Meal Turkey Sandwich ($6.99); and Kids Meal Uncrusted PB&J ($6.49). A cocktail server is also walking the pool deck. I'm told this will be in place for a trial period [ending 10 January 2015, coinciding with the end of Marathon weekend].

[Update from Admin 7 June 2015] Just had an email from one of my contacts at the resort, and the Muddy Rivers poolside food and cocktail service has been continued, and there are plans to expand it in the future.

New Themed Menus at Boatwright's and River Roost Lounge

Posted Friday 7th November 2014, 5:00pm (EST) by The Sassagoula Sentinel

On 29 October 2014, Port Orleans Riverside launched new updated food menus at its Boatwright's Dining Hall table-service restaurant and the River Roost Lounge (the famous home of "Ye Haa" Bob Jackson). While many of the food offerings have remained similar to previous menus, several new Appetisers and Entrées have been added and a number of the options have been renamed to fit in with the resort's elaborate themed backstory (see the Back Story Pages).

You can now start your meal with appetisers such as Colonel Peace’s Crawfish Pieces or Ol' Man Island Oysters, and then continue with General Fulton’s Prime Rib, Jackson Square Étouffée or Sassagoula Short Ribs - not to mention the signature Boatwright's Jambalaya - and finish off with Brew du Krewe or Doubloon Bread Pudding.

For the full menus and prices, please see the Boatwright's Dining Hall and River Roost Lounge pages.

Also recently updated are the menus for the Riverside Mill and Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory food courts, plus the Muddy Rivers and Mardi Grogs pool bars.
