I know I did a review of the great movie ride before. That was before the updates they had this year. And I have to say, what a great improvement! I'm glad that the Tour Guide still gets to say something instead of having him or her mute. I was on a mini trip couple weeks ago and the tour guide I had was funny. And the acting between the tour guide in the gangster was excellent. So like I said, great improvements for a great ride!
My husband and I are both seniors and go to WDW once a year. We have stayed at Port Orleans Riverside 4 times and are staying there again this November! We love the atmosphere at Riverside. We always stay in Alligator Bayou. We love the secluded tropical pathways with little bridges and surprises at each twist and turn. There are beautiful quiet pools tucked away in each area. They are never crowded and just beautiful and peaceful. We have never felt the need to visit the main pool, though it looks like a lot of fun for someone younger:) The rooms are nice and have never had a problem with housekeeping. We are always able to walk to our bus stop without problems. No matter which building we stay in, we always feel secluded and surrounded by wilderness and the tropics!
The Mill has a great selection of counter service food. We always eat there several times. It has a quaint setting with the huge water wheel cranking the huge beam in the main area. We especially like the make your own pasta bowl and salad bowl that they have. You can just wander down the hallway past the "Roost" lounge to the main entrance, registration, arcade, and the general store. I love browsing around their well stocked Disney general store for treats and gifts. I am going to surprise my husband with a carriage ride this time, as it looks like so much fun. We always take the boat to DTD several times. It's a beautiful ride in the evening with the lights and gentle breezes. It's a nice alternative to the buses to DTD. We have never stayed in the Mansions, but they look absolutely stunning and elegant. So, if you like the elegant look of the Mansions or the tropical laid back look of the Bayou, this resort is for you.
The bus system at POR gets slammed frequently on Disney sites. However, we have ridden the buses at all hours of day and night for several trips, and have never had to wait over 10 or 15 minutes for a bus. The wait usually was under 10 minutes. One night upon returning from HS after fantasmic, we had to wait for a bus back to the resort for 30 minutes, but so did all the other resorts. It was just slow getting out of there. For us, POR is our home away from home. I know I'm "on vacation" when I step off the ME and enter the main building! Yes, the fun has begun! I would recommend this resort to anyone. It is a huge resort, so if you don't want to walk a lot, it may not be for you. We both have mobility issues so we always request and get a room close to everything.
This last May the Fam and I decided to visit the aforementioned Whispering Canyon for dinner. I am happy to say I was not only pleasantly surprised, but was completely blown away! Starting with the service. The gentleman’s name escapes me, but his attention to detail, and playful banter with my children, has yet to fade from memory. From asking for “Ketchup” to quickly righting the ship after a beverage spill super server was more than happy to help! Now the food…
I ordered the All You Care To Enjoy platter. The ribs were some of the best, outside of a BBQ restaurant, I have ever "Cared to Enjoy". The pulled pork and sausage were also standouts but those ribs!!!! The kids meals were the standard fair…and the nuggets and mac and cheese looked to be tasty - no complaints lodge “pun intended” and everything was eaten! However, I cannot recommend this enough, order the Wagon Wheel Chocolate S'mores. Trust me here, order it…and a very large glass of ice water!
It was a complete package…great service, wonderful food and solid atmosphere. A wonderful dining experience and would suggest to anyone looking for a goodtime with great food!
Rainforest Cafe is as close as you will get to a neighborhood chain restaurant at Walt Disney World - think Chili's, TGI and Applebees. The menu is large, covering all the bases from chicken, pasta, steaks, ribs, burgers, salads, sandwiches and huge desserts. The food isn't gourmet by any stretch, but it's a safe option with something for everyone in the party, especially for the not-so-adventurous eaters. Watch out for high priced speciality drinks with no price on the menu - there is a definite hint of being a tourist trap here. The servers push huge appetizers, $15 non-alochoclic drinks, and large desserts - be warned. The decor is different and interesting - lots to look at and listen to, great for kids. The restaurant is loud and noisy, and quite dark in places. The restaurant has two entrances, one from inside the park, and one from outside the park - so admission to the park is not required to eat here. If there is a wait for your table, a very large gift shop and aquariums can help pass the time. Overall, I can recommend Rainforest Cafe if it meets your needs - large capacity, air conditioning, lots to see, and a varied menu of reasonable quality.
This is one of our favorite dining spots in all of Disneyworld. We have been there many times and have never been disappointed here. The only thing missing is Ratatouille the rat who was brought out to entertain guests. That was a fantastic addition to the dining experience. Sadly a waiter told us some people complained that it scared them. Well Boo Hoo. That's whats fun about Disney...... surprises! If you can't stand a mechanical small friendly rat then go somewhere else for vacation. It was great.
This ride was amazing!! It wasn't all that scary.. More unexpected!! It was a thrill and there were PLENTY of signs warning parents how "scary" it would be. Not Disney's fault people don't listen!! Hopefully they will bring it back..HOPE! HOPE! HOPE!!!
We ate there in March 2015 and had a great experience. Our food was delicious (ordered the carne asada), atmosphere was cool, and waitstaff very friendly. We had family ranging in age from 8 to 70 and no complaints. Would eat there again!
Our family loves coming to WL. We have stayed at pretty much every resort on property and this is our favorite place. The ambiance of the place when you first walk in is phenomenal. Not to mention being right on the lake give you the option to take the boat over to the Magic Kingdom (still wished the monorail would come here). We have never been disappointed in any of ours stays here and will being staying at WL our next trip in September. If you love log structures this place is a must stay. The people are great and it is one of those places that makes us feel special from the moment we walk in.
Not a huge fan of French food, but this was excellent. So much so, that we are going again on our trip back home in August.
The ambiance and service were top notch, and the food was out of this world Highly recommended.
Im 14, and this is my favorite ride in Disney. kind of surprising isn't it? This ride makes me emotional and I love figment with channing. There are never any waits and its just good to sit back and enjoy it
This was our 3rd visit to the park over the years, and somehow it starts out good but turns bitter during the day. The park closed at 5 pm, we managed to enter just before 10 am and it was jammed packed. The carnival rides in Dinoland are terrible. My back is still sore from riding the time machine roller coaster, it had very hard stops and sharp turns. At dinosaur, the sign said 45 minute wait but took us longer than 1:15 to ride it. There were tons of people with fastpasses and personal guide tours that were allowed in before us in the stand by line. The only positive was the safari, which had a short wait. We did not get to ride anything else because of the long wait times, even though we were there until closing.
I have always found (with only a couple of exceptions) that the Disney Transportation System was very efficient. I often find that it is being monitored, and that buses are being redirected to the resorts or parks of greatest need. There are often transportation supervisors at major busing hubs, monitoring line ups and wait times. They are followed through global positioning, and Disney has a pretty good idea where any of their buses are at any given moment. That is the good news. The bad news is that there are high traffic times, and things do get backed up.... ie after fireworks, special events, or park closings. No bus line on the planet is able to handle those peaks of travellers the way we might like. It's at these times that I congratulate their bus system for doing as well as it does. Sure we are tired, our kids may be cranky, and the buses are packed to the rafters. But the drivers and the systems do their very best to get us back home safely. I find that the vast majority of people who complain, are the people who would never take a bus when they are back "home". These people are comparing bus travel to the family car trip, not to the constraints or challenges of bus travel in general. Take a bus to a ball game or concert, then see what it is like when everyone gets out at the same time. It will be packed, and likely much more inefficient than Disney. I personally congratulate Disney!
I would never ride Orange, but people should definitely ride the Green team side. It's really not bad. For a comparison, it's just like Star Tours for its movement. Very well themed throughout.
I feel like a lot of people skip this hotel just because it's not owned by disney and that means you get nothing- but honestly, the only things you dont get here are the dining plan and Magical Express (which never applies to me since I fly in at Sanford.) This hotel has great location for sure, and while it is more business related, you can't really tell, the theming is charming yet sophisticated and there's plenty of fun things for the kids (The grotto pool is a must-see!) There are a lot of weird fees at times, they charge for parking -_- but still a great hotel. The best thing though, is the price- deluxe digs at moderate prices, with flight/hotel bundles most of the time to sweeten the deal. You just can't beat that :D
Stayed for the day a few years back with my Florida relatives - theme is super consistent, hotel is big, spacious and beautiful, pool's a bunch of fun, restaurants are all delicious- need I say more? From the glimpse i got of the rooms, the beds were super comfy and it was top notch. Even if you can't afford to stay for too long (because it's quite expensive!!) check it out for the day and you'll have a great time :D
As many other reviewers mentioned, getting reservations is a real challenge. After speaking to member services availability even in dvc resorts is limited especially during peak seasons. Disney has the right to keep a certain number of rooms for themselves to book at any time. I have also noticed that while my annual maint. Fees have been going up yet the quality of the rooms is going down. On my last trip there was severe water damage to the rug in my room,refrigerator was caked with rust on the inside and out, latches on the doors were broken or falling off and the hvac system door was covered in dust. Member services of course offered a sincere apology but that doesn't make me feel better about the money 8 send in every year.
Have been to Be Our Guest several times. Have never had an issue at this theme restaurant. We always were able to get the dining area we wanted (west wing) have always had polite wait staff and have never had an issue with the food. Granted the "lunch" time seatings are vastly different from the main dining times but one should know that going in and choosing lunch over dinner. The longest we have waited past our "reservation time" was about 5 minutes. I do not agree with the bad reviews of this dining theme area.
Kali is old. That is the long and short of it. Having gone to Disney 35 plus times over the years the ride was great in its day but its time for a change. Is it worth a 2 hour wait? No. Is it something one should do? Yes especially if its your first time to a Disney park. Get a fast pass for it. The queue line is wonderful though as a lot of thought was put into that part. Fact of the matter is it needs upgrading and made longer with a few more drops and thrills. Not an easy thing to do for sure but if it can be done Disney can do it. Again in its time is was the ride to be on of this type. Now is has at the bottom of the heap of this type of ride simply due to age. I have heard or read nothing however that any kind of upgrade is in the plans for this ride. One thing is for sure though. You will not make it through this ride without getting wet!
Disney has the money, space, and imagination to do much better than this. When they start putting rides like this, Stitch's Great Escape and that awful Jack Sparrow "ride"into the patks, I wonder who is running the show and why they have not had their head examined.
My fiancé and I were so excited when we got in. We ordered our food from a computer and it seemed pretty cool until we went into the dining room. First, why do I have to make a reservation for an overpriced cafeteria? You have to find your own table. You also have to grab your utensils, napkins, drinks and condiments. After that fun, we sat down. Our food was brought to us and it did not look anything like the food on the menu. I got the tuna steak with salad. The portion of the tuna was half what it showed on the screen and it was cold. The salad was a joke. It was horrible, it was mostly olives. I don't like olives and I knew it had some but half my salad was olives. I picked them out and had a handful. My fiancés was a glorified grilled sandwich. I left hungry and disappointed. We will never bother eating there again. There's so many better restaurants in the park. This was the only one to disappoint which was a shame since Beauty and the Beast is my fiancés favourite movie. The restaurant is cool and worth seeing. But I would just make a reservation to see it and take pictures then leave. The desserts were good but still overrated. Especially the grey stuff. It was just grey coloured whipped cream. Don't waste your money or time here. I hope they eventually improve this restaurant.
Dinosaur combines lots of elements to make it what it is: a truly fun ride. It has a plot, great theming, fantastic animatronics, a great, forboding preshow, thrill, humor, etc. For those concerned, it really is not that scary, even when you scream they soon turn to laughs. Be warned, it is fairly jarring, but for the scare factor, people make it up to be scarier than it is. Enjoy!
We got a FP+ reservation for lunch at BOG and the kids and wife were very excited. This was one the one place they absolutely wanted to try. I was disappointed in seeing the snaking line outside and the CM telling us, that line is the FP+ line. They were not accepting walk-ins at that time.
After waiting what seemed like an eternity, we were greeted with kiosks to select our meals, which seemed odd. My wife didn't appreciate the long wait and then having to use a computer to select her lunch. I nor the kids didn't mind. The place is huge and full of people, but we found a nice table. The meal itself was up to par with disney's food. It was good and the kids enjoyed the meals.
Overall what put us off was for a QS type meal, the process of getting the food was rather long and disappointing.
This waterpark is the best by far, a fabulous day out with the kids, very enjoyable! One of my fave parks at WDW would recommend this one out of the 2 waterparks!
Harambe Market is an amazingly immersive environment. The authenticity is there, and it transports you to another place. Hard to believe it is brand new - the theming work is wonderful. The food is good, reminds me of Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, but with larger portions. The only problem is the place gets extremely crowded. There are lines at each of the windows, and then there are problems getting a seat. Like a lot of Disney's Animal Kingdom, the place is wonderful when it is not busy, but a crowded mess when it's busy. My tip, eat here off-peak and you'll enjoy it.
This was the most unacceptable and completely unsafe part of our trip. It was horrendous. We stayed at Riverside. There was no rhyme nor reason nor schedule to how the busses came and went, nor which stops they picked up or dropped off at first. Sometimes we went to the lobby and the one bus was already full from stopping previously. At the destinations, for the return trip our stop was always full and we watched as numerous busses passed us going to empty stops. I mean numerous. Often times, bus drivers were changing shifts mid stop, which caused delays after waiting long times already. We were packed and I mean packed into these busses, grossly overloaded. Often times I stood holding my 4 year old or she had to stand herself. The drivers should be forced to enforce the women and specifically children sit first rule. There were more than a reasonable share of grown men who claimed seats over children. Additionally, I think representatives should be monitoring the stops to better direct busses to where they need to be based on volume. This is an extremely unsafe transit system and I feel Disney or whoever runs it should be ashamed of themselves. Atrocious.
There is nothing good to say about the bus service in Disney World. Everyone on here is right. The staff at your resort and even when you're making your reservation will tell you it's 15 minutes to get to the parks what it's really about an hour and sometimes longer. The bus drivers are incredibly rude. My husband and I had two little ones under the age of three with two carriages and bags. If it wasn't for the kindness of complete strangers I don't know what we would've done. Everyone is standing up -- your packed in like sardines -- multiple times we had to hold on for dear life while holding our 15 month old. It was borderline scary! And the bus drivers clearly hate their job. They are yelling at you to hurry up, etc. On some occasions it was impossible without the kindness of strangers. But the good news is you will find many of them at the happiest place on earth!
We had my ds 3rd birthday party here because he loves Mickey. We dined here in June 2015. I had hopes for a wonderful dinner with fresh vegetables, but not what we got :( Most of the food, tasted pre-made (frozen and reheated). This seems to be increasingly common at Disney now, which is quite disappointing.
Here's is what we were served:
Macaroni/cheese (not bad, lots of sauce, topped with 3 gold fish crackers)
Sweet potato fries (lots of cinnamon- too much for me and I love cinnamon)
Cupcake cone (tasted fresh baked and was probably one of the best things served)
Turkey (good, but dry)
Stuffing (good/pre-made, but dry)
Fish (didn't try it, hubby didn't like it and he usually loves fish, he said it had an 'off' taste)
Mashed poatoes (definitely NOT fresh made)
Roast beef (needed an extra set of teeth for this)
Rolls (not fresh made, standard supermarket style) served with butter that was drizzled with orange blossom honey
Salad (not bad, but nothing special- basically lettuce mix, topped with TWO grape tomatoes 1/2 hard boiled egg and very lightly dressed with ranch dressing)
Berry cobbler (best part of the meal- not overly sweet, it was mixed berry cobbler topped with an oatmeal streusel and whipped cream)
The service was good and the waiter was friendly. My son loved all the characters of course, but no one stayed more than 15-20 seconds except Chip, especially disappointing since we were celebrating his birthday. The restaurant wasn't busy. We dined at 5 pm on a Friday in June and there were empty tables. Also, since my son turned 3 that day, they made me buy his dinner (which was $25) and he ate NOTHING. The only thing he ate was 3 bites of the birthday cake I had ordered from the cake department to be delivered with the meal.
Overall, I've had better food at Disney, but also worse. I would go here again (with someone who insisted), but it won't be my first choice.
This bus system is atrocious. They are never on time and they take absolutely forever to get to their destination. The rides are very bumpy and there are never seats. Also, the bus stops at a million other stops, just lengthening the lines. We were late to two of our dinner reservations in Downtown Disney because the bus didn't get us there on time, even though we got on the bus over an hour before that. The rides are terrible, but they can only occur if the bus ever comes. The busses sometimes have 40 minute waits, just making an already terrible system even worse. The drivers are alright, but they sometimes have to switch drivers, which takes forever. The absolute worst thing that happened was when one of the busses we were on literally stopped working and took five noisy minutes to reboot and to get us out of the stop. This bus system needs some serious help and I would not recommend it to anyone.
I have always rented a car for my many trips to Disney World (been coming here since the late 70s). This time I stayed at Port Orleans Riverside and the concierge highly recommend taking the bus so I gathered my family of 4 and took the water taxi to Downtown Disney with the knowledge that I would have to take the bus home due to the limited water taxi hours. It took a full hour and a lot of complaining to the Downtown Disney dispatcher to finally get my bus. The most frustrating part of this experience was seeing busses come and go for other hotels while I waited and practically begged each bus that came close to my stop (5A) to pick my up. This was my very first and very last experience with Disney busses. Live and learn.
I saw where the overview said this restaurant is not kid friendly, we did not get that impression. Our waiter went out of his way for our Disney daughter. He actually got another waiter to come over and entertain her, too. That second waiter even fed her! She's four so she looked at him like he was nuts; however, she did eat an entire flat iron steak. This restaurant is the only restaurant my husband remembers and said on our next visit we cannot skip ( btw the only time he used the phrase " the next time we go...."lol)!
I've stayed here twice and will be staying a third time for our upcoming trip. This place is a peaceful little gem right on the river. I love the theming and grounds. The big plus about this resort is that it is very small. It takes not even ten minutes to get from pretty much any building to the main lobby, food court, etc. Being right on the river gives it extra charm and the boat rides to DTD are very nice. Sure, people might grumble that there's only a food court here and no sit-down restaurant (you can actually walk over to Riverside for that), but everything else makes up for that!
Every time I've stayed there, my room was very clean upon arrival and housekeeping was great. Staff have always been nothing but nice. I'm really looking forward to my upcoming stay there, and I can't wait to see the refurbished rooms!
OK Frozen was a success but its time to move on. There is way to much frozen stuff happening all over the Disney Parks. There really is life after Frozen. While the project at Norway seems like it will be a good fit, the over the top gaudy promotion of the Frozen franchise at Hollywood Studios is over kill. The show and the stage that blocks an otherwise great view of the park from the entrance is just a terrible looking jumble of scaffolding and light grids and a worn out run of the mill show just like so many others that it takes away form the Hollywood experience and that park can hardly afford that any more since more and more empty spaces are showing up there. Hollywood needs something to kick start it but Frozen is not the answer.
Great counter service choice! The mac and cheese hot dog was very tasty. While my daughters kids meal was standard, PB &J with 2 sides, it came in a sand pail with a shovel. Very cute & a nice surprise. We would definitely go here again!
We had an 8am, first seating ADR here in December. It was myself, husband and our almost 4 year old daughter. This ended up being our favorite table service meal of our entire trip! The first seating was a wonderful choice as the restaurant was not completely full, we got a great table, right on the aisle where the characters do the dance parties, and the food was hot and fresh. The breakfast choices, while standard, are delicious and plentiful. Our server was amazingly attentive, always refilling our coffees, making friendly conversation with our daughter, and offering us all juices to go before we left. The character interaction was some of the best we experienced all week. Each character took their time at our table, offering our daughter lots of hugs and picture opportunities. Our table was right at the front of the section so every time they walked past us to get to another table, they would tap her on the shoulder, wave or give her an extra squeeze. The dance parties were a wonderful feature, adding even more character interaction time. As we were leaving, my daughter desperately wanted to say goodbye to Doc McStuffins so our server actually went and found her for us. Overall, 5+ stars and we would return here without any hesitation.
We ate here for breakfast, 8:15 am ADR, in December. It was myself, husband and almost 4 year old. I would describe our experience as rushed and chaotic. Our 4 year old however was in princess heaven. It is very loud inside, each princess was announced however, it was all mumble jumble to us. They also announce some sort wishing star/wave your magic wand thing however, we couldn't hear that either. The princesses come through rapid fire, posing for a quick picture and then rushing off to the next table. Most times we were still wiping the syrup off my daughters face as they were quickly rushing through. Speaking of syrup, while the adult breakfast choices are fine, not so much for kids. There were only 2 choices on the kids menu, a vegetable fritatta, and a platter consisting of scrambled eggs, sausage and french toast sticks. My daughter does not like eggs, and did not want sausage that day, so we paid $35 for some french toast sticks. As adults, it was an underwhelming experience, glad we experienced it once, but never again. Our 4 year old loved it though, so that's what matters.
We ate here in December as part of the Candlelight Processional package. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Many choices, all delicious. The interior decor is gorgeous, but LOUD. Don't expect to be able to talk while the band is playing. Our biggest disappointment was the lack of food for our 4 year old. There is no separate buffet for children. After going through the whole buffet, my daughter had a roll and some cheese & crackers on her plate. When I asked a CM about children's choices, we were told kids usually like the roasted chicken or the potato and pasta gratin. I looked at a few different menus online before booking here and all always listed mini hot dogs and mac and cheese. Neither were available that day. In conclusion, wonderful, delicious choices for adults. No choices for children.
I don't have anything bad to say about the food, but the service is really bad. The waiters were not very friendly, and they seemed to be in a rush, they were hurrying us up, even to the point that when we wanted to check the menu for desserts they literally didn't give us more than one minute to read the menu and they came back saying that the kitchen was closing so we needed to order right away. Needless to say, we left without dessert. I like to enjoy my meal from beginning to end, especially if I'm on vacations AND at Disney.
I'm never going back.
We tried this on our last Disney vacation. We checked into our room, swam and then headed for dinner. The wait staff was kind and helpful. We all enjoyed our meal and found our meals flavorful. We are looking forward to returning to Boatwright's on our next visit as we all loved the menu and can not wait to try more of it.
We have eaten here on all three of our Disney vacations. We love everything the atmosphere, characters and the food. I can not say enough about the food, the meal changes but it is always top notch. We always talk about the wonderful quality of the food afterwards. We like the outside booths the best so you can enjoy the rotating scene.
Last time I went to Disney World I ended up in this place not by choice but because it was late and we didn't know where else to go. And I'm glad I did! The burger was so good! And that garlic mayo is unbelievable! I had never even heard of it before.
After the first experience I went back this time by choice and I tried the chicken sandwich, which was also pretty good. The only thing I requested both times was no tomato chutney, but that's just me (I really don't like that).
Also, he staff was very attentive to us.
I don't give it five stars cause they should keep the place a bit cleaner in my opinion.
I'm surprised by all the negative reviews so I wanted to right our experience. The restaurant was fairly empty but it was a late night reservation. Our waitress was the best we had our whole vacation. I had the prime rib and it was superb. Unfortunately I can't remember what the rest of my family had but everyone left happy and full. I did try the "glo-tini" and I didn't care for it but I'm not much of a drinker and wanted to try something.
The menu constantly rotates so it's almost impossible to comment on specific menu items. Just know the food is amazing as is the service! The waitstaff is there for your every need, My wife was offered a shall by the hostess in cases she was cold. Your menu is tailored to what you like, A week before our trip, V&A called to confirm our reservation and ask if there were any food preferences or restrictions, my then pregnant wife's meal was tailored to her needs. I'm not a fish person, but I took a risk and wasn't disappointed. The down side to V&A is that the room is stuffy, despite being on being on Seven Sea Lagoon there are no windows and the lighting is dim. Ambient music is not provided by a cd but by a live harpest who adds to the ambiance. Price makes this meal a one in a lifetime event two of us spent $400 with tip. Overall if I had one meal to eat before I died I would make it at Victoria and Alberts.
Frozen Summer Fun is back for a second year, in a slightly watered down version. No merchandise bonanza with Wondering Oakens, and no ice skating rink. The mini-parade is slightly improved over last year, as are the fireworks. The nightly fireworks show is without question the highlight, and is a must see at Walt Disney World for this summer.
I've never had any major issues with the service. Its free so you can't really complain. The staff always has been extremely friendly and helpful when we arrived. And there's nothing more magical then when you officially pass onto the official WDW property. However I would suggest packing a bag with the stuff you'll be needing for that day because the luggage takes forever to get to your room. So if your gonna go swimming at your hotel pack a swimsuit in an extra bag.
This is one of the best themed resorts on the property. I spent an afternoon and evening exploring Riverside and French Quarter. There is boat service between the two resorts and Downtown and the skippers are always great.
The food courts are typical WDW quality. The food court CMs were great. I almost choked on the powdered sugar on the FQ beignets (that's a good thing if you've ever been to the real New Orleans).
My room was spacious with an unusually large bathroom. The theming was fun, with old-time shipping crates as furniture. The resort itself is very quiet and peaceful. They even have a fishing hole but I did hear someone who was fishing ask a CM if anyone actually caught any fish there.
The bus service on this trip was very good to all parks and they even had a screen with estimated wait times at my stop.
Here are my very minor complaints: Like most hotel chains, Disney has a problem with sinks. The stopper was non-functional and the sink was very shallow. Almost useless for shaving. There was no separate power switch for the very loud bathroom fan so it couldn't be turned off. I used the 'go right to your room' option and my old runDisney MagicBand opened the front door. But there was no welcome packet in the room. A map would have been nice.
In spite of those minor complaints I highly recommend Riverside.
