Editor’s Review of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter

Jackie Perrin Editor’s Rating 4/5 Moderate Resort

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
... more 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. less

Slightly more spacious than accommodations at Disney Value Resorts, but with less elbowroom than you'd enjoy at a Deluxe Category property, rooms at Port Orleans French Quarter Resort contain all the amenities you'd expect in a mid-range chain hotel, plus a few extras thrown in with trademark Disney flair. While rooms themselves lack luxury, many guests feel that the property's lush landscaping, expertly created New Orleans ambiance, convenient boat service to downtown Disney and access to an abundance of activities provide significant value and are adequate compensation for an absence of upscale comforts.

Standard Rooms
Standard Rooms, last refurbished in 2012, ... more are 314 square feet and are located in a village of seven, three-story buildings, designed to project the ambiance of the New Orleans French Quarter and Garden District. Ornate wrought iron railings line room entries and along with neatly manicured hedges, fragrant blooms and "cobblestone" streets transport guests to the Big Easy. Linens and furniture reflect the regional Southern theme, including dark cherry furnishings and Mardi Gras print bedcoverings, with numerous "Hidden Mickeys" to be found.

All guestrooms contain a king bed or two queen beds and sleep up to four, plus one crib sleeper under the age of three. Complimentary Pack 'N Plays and bed rails are delivered upon request, and connecting rooms are available. Families can choose from Garden, Pool and River views, too.

Besides a dresser and a TV, each room is equipped with a table with two chairs and a bench, a coffeepot and complimentary Wi-Fi. A small refrigerator is housed in a low-lying, non-locking cabinet -- this may be an issue if you're traveling with little ones. A vanity area contains two sinks, as opposed to the one available at Value Resorts, and a privacy curtain separates it from the bedroom, meaning part of your party can shower early while others sleep in (assuming they're not light sleepers). less
