Just got back and have to say we werent to happy about our resort Port Orleans Riverside. It was a beautiful resort, but when your used to the convenience of the deluxe resorts, it just doesnt compare. DH said if you had to stay there to relax its fine, but for the disney parks, its just not convenient. (Were spoiled so this is just our opinion). Check in was smooth and quick. I didnt get into the building I had requested, but they did honor my request for a king, corner room, (2 windows) top floor overlooking the pool. We ended up in room 8267 in the Acadian Building. My request was for Parteer Place or Oak Manor. But it was okay. I was happy that it was a quite location. The room was nice and the walk to the bus was fairly close, so was the food court and main building. Mousekeeping was fantastic! I used the envelopes daily and left one each morning on the bed. She left us adorable surprises. One morning she had a card from Cinderella for me for my birthday. It was a very nice surprise. One complaint about this resort is the boat transportation its a joke compared to other boats in WDW. This boat is so slow and can only hold 30 passengers. We rode the boat twice and then gave in for the bus which got us to the marketplace within 7 mins instead of 30 like the boat would have. Another complain is that the Westside boat and bus station is closed. The boat from PO-R drops you off in the Marketplace. Which is inconvenient when you have ressies at Bongos or HOBs on the Westside. Then you need to walk back to PI for the bus or to the Marketplace before 11pm for the boat. Other thing that upset me was trying to get an iron and ironing board. I phoned mousekeeping and no one ever picked up, as well as the front desk. I was on hold between the both numbers for over an hour and forty five minutes. Finally, I just dialed the operator and she took my request and got the iron delivered within 15 minutes to our room. We complained about this service and was told they are working on the phone system. It was annoying! We had a nice vacation, but just wanted to let you know dont go to a moderate expecting service to be similar to a deluxe. As my DH put it its like night and day.
