    Dana from GA Asked

    Hello. We are planning our first trip staying on property. Our last trip was 2009. We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside and planing on going to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. Can we tour other hotels?

    Hello Dana!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited to hear that you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel during your next visit! You will get to enjoy many wonderful benefits and the hotel you chose is absolutely gorgeous! Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is one of my favorite Disney Resort hotels. It has great dining options, wonderful activities, and Ol' Man Island is such a fun pool.

    You will be more than welcome to visit other hotels, and this is actually something that I do very often. I like to enjoy dining and entertainment opportunities at other hotels. After staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, I always like to go back and sit at the lobby to listen to Grand Floridian Society Orchestra in the evening. Restaurants are also amazing at this hotel, and I love to pamper myself with amazing treatment at Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. We also like visiting Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for a nice drink and then watch Happily Ever After fireworks from the beach. We also try finishing the iconic Kitchen Sink at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop located at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.

    Moms Panel tip: while visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, make sure to stop by Pandora – The World of Avatar, and please don’t miss the opportunity to fly in the back of a banshee on Avatar Flight of Passage. FastPass+ is highly recommended for this attraction!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope this helps you while planning.

    Best magical wishes,
