Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter

Jazz music is in the air!  There are a few gators playing instruments on your way  the pool, but no worries these guys are friendly!  Oh, watch out!  There’s a sea monster!  Wait, that’s the slide into the pool!

Here’s the Facts:

The French Quarter is a Moderate Resort.  However, this is the only Moderate Resort without a sit down restaurant.  However, you can head to her “sister” resort (Port Orleans – Riverside) a short walk away to dine at Boatwright’s Dining Hall.

It’s the smallest resort on the Disney Property.  There’s only 1 big pool, with a great serpent slide!   There’s also a small round wading pool for your tiny ones the water is only about a foot deep.

There are 3 rooms options – Standard, Garden, and Water Views (pool or river).

For a quick bite or quick service meal head to Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory

Port Orleans French Quarter & Riverside are the only Moderate Resorts with another means of transportation besides a bus.  You can take a lovely boat ride down the Sassagoula River to Downtown Disney.

Laundry Facilities, Mini Fridges in rooms, of course a gift store.

For the kids:
There is a Playground & Game Room, sometimes even Movies out by the pool at night.

For the Adults:
Jacuzzi, Child Care Services,  Horse Drawn Carriage Rides (for an additional cost), or visit the Scat Cat’s Lounge off the lobby, in addition to the poolside bar both offer adult drinks.
I’ve stayed at the French Quarter several times, this is one of my favorite resorts.  I enjoy the cozy environment with it being a small resort.  My daughter (4 years old), loves this resort also.  It is very kid friendly with the gator statues and bright colors.  However, as an adult it is also very romantic at night.  Walking around the cobblestone “street’s” along the river is very relaxing.
