Expert Reviews
Designed like an old town on the Mississippi Delta, the huge, 2,048-room Riverside is one of Disney's best Moderate-category hotels.
Buildings in this family-friendly, moderately priced resort look like Southern plantation–style mansions (in the Magnolia Bend section) and rustic bayou dwellings.
"Evoking the grandeur of the Old South" and offering "serenity to the overstimulated", this "gem" is a "sprawling" resort set on "lovely" grounds in a "killer" location.
