The antebellum South along the old Mississippi is the theme of Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside. Steamboats were a big part of the old South and the theming of the registration area reflects that as guests check-in to the Sassagoula Steamboat Company which is themed after the inside of an actual riverboat.
Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside has a combination of the classic grand plantation mansions and country bayou villages. There are four mansion style buildings and 16 bayou, all connected by bridges to the Ol' Man Island pool and fishing area. The Sassagoula River winds through the resort.
Its Southern mansions and bayou accommodations line a picturesque, Mississippi-style waterway. There are six pools, with a water slide in the feature pool. This Moderate Resort offers one full-service restaurant, plus other dining options.
Award-winning, spectacular gardens and fountains are the mainstays of the mansion areas.
The smell of the magnolia blossoms as you walk along the picturesque riverside walkways, is divine. Magnolia Bend is home to the majestic mansions reminiscent of the classic elegance of the rural South. Some of the details of these elegant mansions include majestic columns, grand staircases and ornate white railings.
In the Alligator Bayou, you'll find 2-story, Cajun-style brick or stucco lodges with tin roofs, wide front porches and rough hewn railings similar to those found in the rural bayou regions of southern Louisiana. These are set amidst dense moss-hung pine forests and creeks.
