Bayou Pirate Adventure ($)

Sailing down the Sassagoula River, young scallywags listen to the legends surrounding Captain Jean Lafitte – one of the most infamous pirates ever to haunt the waters of New Orleans. Departs from the Fishin' Hole on Ol' Man Island. Donning pirate bandanas, young buccaneers board their seasoned vessel for a spirited pursuit of treasure. Sailing to exotic "ports of call" (Resort marinas), they’ll hear legends of pirates past and discover clues that may just lead to a bountiful treasure chest. At the final port of call, kids split up the pirate booty, as they enjoy a snack (such as goldfish crackers or pretzels) and a drink (such as water or a juice box). Children must be 4 to 12 years of age and potty-trained to join this pirate crew.

The age range below will determine the quantity of children during booking.

Magical

Fernando P (Las Vegas, Nevada) on Dec 05, 2022

First time staying at a Moderate Disney resort. Upon getting to the gate, the security gate officer David was super helpful and welcomed our family and gave us directions. Drove to the front reception to see if there were some essentials we could get before heading to the room. Parked and every cast member walking past us had a smile and greeted us. DIsney character bus was there and ran into some Disney character in their 50th anniversary celebration outfits. Walked in and was greeted by the reception cast members and Mary greeted us and verified we had been online checked in and gave me a map and showed me how to get there with the app. She asked if this was our first time I said yes, and she showed us around and explained a lot of stuff with our resort stay. The resort area was beautiful, pool area and the docks and walk pathways and saw the horse carriages and boats to Disney springs. Went back to the car and went to our room. Everything fit the theme and was very beautiful. We didn't have a water view, but water was all around us and everything was close by or a short walk. I saw that the pathways lead to Port Orlean French quarter and later during the stay would walk to that property during sunset to get some exercise in. Beds were comfortable. The shuttle buses were convenient but sometimes would go through French quarter and Port Orleans before arriving at Riverside. Course if you don't mind it is no problem but just take that in consideration, probably the only complaint I had, as sometimes we were tired and just wanted to go get some rest. Buses we never to crowded, and the views were amazing. I got to visit every resort hotel, and this was my favorite Moderate resort hotel. You truly feel the magic staying here and how convenient everything is. This is the now my favorite resort and plan on returning eventually.

Great resort hotel for families

beaglepack (Apex, North Carolina) on Dec 03, 2022

ROOM: Two queen beds in our room was enough for us and the kids. The beds were comfortable. Double sinks. Decent shower. The room was clean. Keep in mind that the hotel does not clean the room every day, rather every other day. We did ask for extra towels which was not a problem. Getting the room from the front of the hotel was a bit of a hike. After a day of air travel you may want to get yourself a luggage trolley. They also offer a little shuttle to get you to your building from the lobby. We were on the second floor and there is no elevator so be prepared to haul your luggage up the stairs. If that’s a problem for you make sure to get a first floor room. FOOD: Meals can be had in either a full service restaurant (which I did not try) or in the food court. Prices and food variety in the food court was pretty good. Expect to pay about $10 per meal there. Pizza is a pretty good deal at $18. Get yourself a $20 refillable cup for the week. There is a full service bar which is pretty pricey. A single pour of whiskey cost me about $18 at the bar. It is only a 5 minute walk from the room to the food court. TRANSPORTATION: There is easy access to the Disney parks via bus service with the typical wait time about 10 minutes with a maximum wait of 20 minutes. It is about a 15 minute ride to any park. There are a lot of options for transportation to/from the airport. I took a Sunshine shuttle bus from the airport which was long, loud and crowded, and only marginally cheaper than an Uber. Won’t do that again. I took an Uber back to the airport which was smooth and quick. Uber pickup is right at the from of the hotel and it took only about 20 minutes to get to the airport at midday. POOLS: They have several nice pools, one big one that the kids will really like, with lifeguards on duty. The lifeguards actually pay attention too. Also there is a smaller pool with no lifeguards that is a lot quieter. Kids are welcome there too. GROUNDS: The grounds are very pretty with a nice walking/jogging path throughout. You can rent multi passenger bikes which is very fun. Everything is kept very clean. PRICE: Nothing at Disney is cheap. We paid about $450/night and I consider that something of a bargain.
