Buyer beware

Denver, Colorado

We have always heard about the magical experience at Disney. This is our first trip and we decided to stay at a Disney resort, but boy it couldn’t be further from the truth. I am so truly disappointed with the service. We arrived very early due a red eye flight. We called the night before and asked if we could get an early check in, even if it was a couple hours prior to the 3 pm check in time. They said they would make a note in our chart and they would try to get us in early but to go to the resort in the morning and ask as well. So we get here at 8 am. They say hopefully around 11. We get no notification at 11. We check back at 1:30, still no room available, but told us they would tell housekeeping they would rush it. Went back at 3, the actual check in time. They told us no room. They would rush it with housekeeping again. Called the Disney guest services line, no help as well. So here we are at 4 pm, an hour after check in, with a over tired crying 4 year old, sitting in a resort that has nothing to do indoors when it’s raining. No explanation from the resort. We’ve had this room booked for months.

Grand Kids

Morristown, Tennessee

Just got back from our 2nd visit to Disney this year. This time we stayed at the PO riverside. We have stayed here before a few years back. Our grand kids were there with their parents for fall break. The resort is lovely, all the common areas were well kept, clean and safe. Our room was one of the updated rooms and it was nice and clean. Love the hardwood floors as opposed to carpet. We ate several meals at the resort food court and every meal we had was great, good in price too. I know people complain about the price of the food in other reviews but honestly they give you good portions and the food is pretty good. It's not much more in price than other restaurants outside Disney. And what do you expect???? It's a resort, I think some folks have unrealistic expectations. Anyway, my personal favorite was the BBQ sandwich, it was some of the best. Pool area was nice, clean, fun games for the kids. My only issue for this resort is that the main pool (actually all the pools) were freezing cold!!! It was too cold for me so we got out and went over to the sister property French Quarter (which is my FAVORITE Disney resort and I've stayed at several). French Quarter pool must be heated cause it was much easier to be in. The boat ride from the resort to Disney Springs is super cool. Its a nice "extra" feature and very relaxing. Its one of the reasons we stay at these 2 properties. You can't really go wrong staying at this resort, really you can't go wrong staying at any Disney resort, in my opinion. Disney just knows how to do things, and the service is always top notch. Either one of these properties are super nice....I just prefer PO French Quarter, don't know why but I do but Riverside is a solid choice so book with confidence and enjoy yourself!! Wish I was still at Disney now.
