Disney’s Port Orleans Resort, French Quarter

Explore the charm of New Orleans French Quarter in this smallest and most charming of WDW’s Moderates.

Riverside is themed on the Mississippi River communities in Antebellum Louisiana. It is divided into two sections that display the opposite ends of the spectrum. There is Magnolia Bend, where the buildings look like Southern Plantation Mansions and then there is Alligator Bayou, which, has tin roofed wood plank, sided buildings.
