we were at riverside a month ago (september 2nd-september 10th). we stayed in magnolia bend building 85 and this was our first time in the mansions. i loved the new rooms and the location was wonderful. the rooms were beautiful and very clean. we were right next to a satelite pool and the main pool was just over a bridge. we were also extremely close to the front desk/food court. to go to the parks we simple had to cut through the parking lot and we were at the bus stop. the transportation this trip was the best we have had ever compared to all of our stays on disney property. we had no more than a 10 minute wait at anytime. when going to downtown disney we found the bus much quicker than the boat. the food court was good but we preferred the food court at french quarter. the resort was beautiful and we loved the pools and the themeing. this resort is my daughter's favorite (she prefers alegator bayou over the mansions. i think both sections are nice.) i would not hesitate to recommend this resort or stay here again. i dont think you will be disappointed.

Actually, there's both a free dining offer and a room discount offer:

it is a great resort and the lounge the roost has Bob the piano player and is fun to sit and relax and listen to hm. then can take the boat to DTD and that is fun. and if free dining offered then is the MYWD so ihave fun.

It's not technically free dining. FD would save my family about $1500 this offer only saves $600 at POR when i called just to price it. Still a savings but its not FD. Supposedly it's pricing out to be adult dining and tickets for child price. I'll have to see the numbers myself once it's on the site

I'm staying at Riverside for the first time over New Years and I can't wait! We booked a Royal Room and I think it'll be cute. I've stayed at French Quarter and I liked it a lot.
I booked with Dreams Unlimited, so hopefully if discounts come out, they'll apply them for me. We're staying til Jan 5, so maybe I can at least get a little discount for a few days of the trip.
Thanks for all of the great info guys!
