About Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter

One of two Moderate Category properties making up Disney's 325-acre Port Orleans Resort, the 1,008-room Port Orleans French Quarter Resort is just a short boat ride from Downtown Disney, but seemingly worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks.

Half the size of its sprawling sister, Port Orleans Riverside, and providing access to activities and facilities at both properties, the lushly landscaped New Orleans-themed resort opened in 1991 as Port Orleans Resort, and is a favorite among couples seeking a romantic retreat; it's also a haven for families in search of a peaceful getaway.

A Mardi Gras-themed pool with a sea serpent slide is a favorite among kids of all ages, and in addition to an onsite playground and a game room, guests have access to bikes, boats, cane pole fishing and even carriage rides at the neighboring Port Orleans Riverside Resort.

After sampling regional foods like jambalaya, beignets and barbecue at Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory, your crew can listen to jazz at Scat Cats Club, take a leisurely stroll along cobblestone streets, or board a flat bottom boat and enjoy a scenic ride to Downtown Disney.
