Today Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside we reopened it, so we made our way there to check it out.
Port Orleans Resort – Riverside is a moderate resort located on the Sassagoula River. Although most of Riverside’s dining options have reopened at the resort today, it is not expected to return a key place to eat for a few more months.
Let’s start with what’s open. The Food Riverside Mill shows the operating hours today from From 7:00 to 23:00 (note that operating hours may change). Here you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the south, which includes dishes such as Shrimp & Grits and Jambalaya. It is a fast service dining place, that means you do not need reservations here.
The River Roost Lounge will be open later today, starting at 17:00 to 00:00. This lounge has some small dishes, such as Loaded Potato Puffs and Boudin. If you come for a drink, there are also some mocktails, a long list of cocktails and other drinks available. And The River Roost Lounge is the space of the beloved Yehaa Bob Jackson, who will be performing at the resort again tonight!
The Muddy Rivers pool bar has also reopened and shows operating hours from 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. today. In this bar, you can have a quick snack (they have sandwiches, salads and breccias), as well as a cool drink to enjoy while relaxing by the pool. We tried some of the frozen drinks on this site and you can read more about them here.
Boater’s dining room, known for their dishes inspired by Southern Louisiana cuisine, show no operating hours for today or for various dates we checked in October and later. According to a cast member we spoke to today, this site it will not reopen until December. This hidden gem of a table service restaurant has delicious dishes such as Mardi Gras fritters, Prime Rib and more, which are served in a unique gastronomic setting similar to shipbuilding warehouse.
We look forward to an official Boatwright’s reopening date. Please note that while Riverside opened today, Port Orleans Resort– French Quarter will not reopen until October 28th.
