Check-in / Check-Out
You are in for a real treat when Checking-in to the Disney Port Orleans Riverside Resort (or any Disney property for that matter). The easiest way to check-in is to use the Disney Experience online or the Disney App. It is as easy as looking at the reservation you have made at the Riverside Port Orleans and clicking the button to let them know when you will arrive. From this point, the Disney staff will let you know when your room is ready and you will get a notification. Making even more magical, if you already have your magic bands, you don't even have to stop at the front desk because your magic band is the key to your room so you can let yourself in after getting the notification that you are ready to go. If you really feel the need to stand in line because that is part of your experience, standard Check-in is still available as well. You can start your check-in at 3 pm on your arrival date. Check-out is by 11 AM on your departure date.
Kids Nite Out
It's time for a night out for the adults so what do you do? Great News! Disney offers a kids nite out the program where you can drop your kids off for a night they will not forget and you can go out for some fun and romance on your own. Don't feel bad about doing this, most kids don't want to be picked up when the night is done. Check out your dining options at the Boatwrights Restaurant right in the Disney Port Orleans Riverside resort or branch out and let the water taxi service take you on a romantic boat ride to Disney Springs (this is subject to the number of other guests who might be riding with you). As long as your child is in the 6 month - 12-year-old range, they will keep them occupied for an hourly fee. You can contact Kid's Nite Out at (407) 828-0920, 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM, 7 days a week.
