Port Orleans recreation activities are diverse at this moderate Walt Disney World resort. The Riverside section of the resort is much larger and hosts a lot of recreational activities from the 3.5 acre playground Ol' Man Island.

This delightful pool is themed after the New Orleans Mardi Gras. A kiddie pool, hot tub and small playground are nearby. Complimentary locker rentals are available at the pool area. Poolside activities abound with a squeaky-clean Mardi Gras parade at 4:00 PM daily. The Mardi Grogs pool bar is located near the pool.

Riverside Main Pool by rickpilot_2000
Ol' Man Island is a 3.5 acre watery playground. Located on an island in the Riverside section, Ol' Man Island hosts an array of resort activities.
The resort's largest pool is located on Ol' Man Island. The 158,000 gallon pool seems like something straight out of Tom Sawyer. Water drips into the pool from wooden structures above the rustic fishing hole. The pool also has a geyser and a 95 foot long slide.
The resort has one hot tub. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The hot tub is frequented by children, so it may not be entirely relaxing.
Showers and lockers (fee) are available near the pool bar. Towels are available poolside at the main pool only. Life vests are available and life guards are on duty during select hours.
The Muddy Rivers pool bar servers drinks and light snacks. This pool tends to get very busy. There is a daily
pool party and a host of other poolside activities throughout the day including a Dance Off.

Cast member organized activities can be found on the Island, including crafts. Three wooden bridges connect the island to the mainland.
