WiFi at Port Orleans Riverside?


#1

Does POR have free wifi?


#2

I don’t think it’s free. I believe that only DVC Resorts have free WiFi. But I’m not 100% sure.


#3

Thank you. Is wifi available at any of the parks?


#4

No problem. :slight_smile:

But for the parks I have no clue about. Try looking on Disney’s website. Maybe they have some info.


#5

Thank you so much. We have not been since 2005 and I was hoping that by now there wifi some where on property. Even if it is not free.


#6

I’m pretty sure POR actually doesn’t even have WiFi for a fee… I think it’s High-Speed Internet access (you pay like $10/day) you have to have a cord for… I had the same problem at All-Stars and Saratoga Springs.


#7

When I was at POR last May they had a cord by the phone and I’m most certain there was a fee


#8

It’s hard to use the words FREE and DISNEY in the same sentence…lol…We stayed at POR in 07 and our friends used the in-room internet and there was a fee. I think it was 10 bucks.


#9

All the resorts have WIRED high speed Internet service available at a cost of $10 for 24 contiguous hours. Network cables are usually in every room, but I travel with my own.
There are some common areas of some deluxe resorts that have WIRELESS, or WiFi service, but this is also at a $10 charge.
If you are already paying Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T for wireless Internet service, that is something different, and Disney is not involved.

Hey sTinkerbell! Nice to see you! :heart:


#11

Look who the cat dragged in!!

We miss you Tink!


#12

aww thank you Roxie and cinderbella :slight_smile: and thanks everyone else on the info.


#13

I am confused, is it true the DVC resorts have wifi free?

Here’s the info that All Ears has posted about WiFi property wide, and it isn’t free:

Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) High Speed Wireless Internet Access

Wi-Fi is available to those staying at certain Disney resorts. If your laptop computer or Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) is Wi-Fi enabled, you’ll be able to access the internet from the common areas of these resorts.

Fee: $4.99 for the first 60 minutes or $9.95 for 24 contiguous hours. The vendor that provides this Wi-Fi service, Smart City, will bill you using a secure credit card transaction via the on-screen internet connection.

dvc members get internet service free…on dvc properties… ,but it is hard wired …I believe WIFI is not available but I can confirm that from my son tomorrow…he knows as much about disney technical stuff as anybody…so I will fill you in tomorrow on the wifi…internet service I believe is also available but at a cost at all the other non dvc resorts


#16

As I posted earlier, DVC members get their wired high speed internet in DVC resorts for free, but only when staying on points.
I posted a list of Wi-Fi hot spots and noted that it will cost $9.95 for 24 contiguous hours. These hot spots are not in the rooms, although you might get lucky enough and get some weak overlapping coverage, and you will pay.
