Walt Disney World is known for the exciting and detailed themes of it's Resort Hotels. They not only offer a safe and clean room to stay in close to the Parks but through the magic of Imagineering have a way of transporting you from the reality of Central Florida to exotic locals around the globe and even into the worlds of Disney Movies.

Muddy Rivers Pool Bar at Port Orleans Riverside Resort

Tucked away on Ol' Man Island at Disney's Port Orleans Riverside is the Muddy Rivers Pool Bar. Situated well out of the way of the resort's guest rooms and main building, there is little hustle and bustle unless the feature pool is crowded.

Open to the elements with a faux weathered wood exterior and charming storm shutters that prop open.
