    Hi, we are headed to POR in September. Should we request a specific part of the hotel in order to be closer to transportation to the parks? Thanks!!

    Hi Jamie! Congratulations on your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside (POR) is divided into two distinctly themed areas, Alligator Bayou and Magnolia Bend. Alligator Bayou features accommodations in two-story Cajun-styled rustic buildings. Magnolia Bend offers accommodations in two and three story plantation-style Mansions. In Magnolia Bend, Oak Manor Mansion and Parterre Place Mansion are considered to be the most desirable locations due to their proximity to Boatwright's Dining Hall, Ol' Man Island (main pool area), the resort's lobby, and a bus stop. In Alligator Bayou Buildings 14, 18, and 27 are similarly situated in relation to these main areas. I would recommend requesting any of those locations. You may review a map of POR here in order to determine your preference. However, please keep in mind that Disney does not guarantee room requests. Please contact Disney at (407) 939-7675. Give the Cast Member your Resort Confirmation Number and specify your room location preference. The Cast Member will make a note of the request on your Reservation. For more information about POR's Rates & Room Types, please go here. Your family will love staying at Disney's Port Orleans Riverside. Please let me know if you have any other questions I may be able to answer for you. Enjoy a most memorable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
