Intricate railings, cobblestone streets and courtyards of flowers capture the spirit and romance of New Orleans' French Quarter.

Dazzling detail, bayou excitement and "all that jazz" can be had for a "song." Resort features 1,008 guest rooms, pool with slide, kiddie pool, arcade and playground. Bicycle rentals, family fishing hole and a marina with watercraft rentals available at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Rooms are available for guests with disabilities.

Great for the most part

The hotel room was immaculate, housekeeping was very responsive to minor requests. The location was convenient with frequent transportation to the parks. The food court was small but had good variety. There was a store that sold bottled water, snacks etc that was expensive, but probably no more than any other place in Disney. My only complaint is that the staff did not seem very happy to see their guests and their demeanor was cold. No one smiled or seemed interested in whether their guests were happy. When checking out I was not asked how my stay was, which was surprising.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Apparently you can buy a refillable coffee mug for around $15 for unlimited refills during your stay which may be cheaper than paying $2.50 a cup otherwise depending on how much you drink and how long your stay is. The "salad your way" was a good bargain and very fresh.

Great Getaway

Our vacation included Walt Disney World. The location of the room was great, it was near the bus system which was wonderful. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was eager to meet our needs. My only negative comment would be that I wish there were more varied eating options within the resort.

Port Orleans - French Quarter

This was my third time going to Disney as an adult. This time I decided to up the quality of my hotel to one of Disney's "moderate" resorts. When it came to the room itself, it was exactly the same as the value resorts. The atmosphere was nicer; a bit more classy and not kid-themed. But the actual features of the room were the same. The food court was also exactly the same as the value resorts. I was hoping to find a sit-down restaurant in addition to the food court, but there was not one. What I thought would be the restaurant just turned out to be an indoor bar. The pool was slightly better than the pools at the value resort I had previously stayed at. This one included a small waterslide. Unfortunately, there were no side pools to go to in the hopes of escaping the crowd. If you wanted one of those, you had to take the long trek over to the Riverside hotel. The location was a big step up from the value resort. French Quarter is close enough to Downtown Disney that you can squeeze it into your day without really planning ahead. However, the transportation provided is not quite enough. Catching a bus quickly is a roll of the dice, and the water taxis heading to Downtown are already three-quarters full with the Riverside crowd when they get there. You will most likely have to wait for a second boat. Unfortunately, a lot of the amenities that they advertise have to be accessed at Riverside. Catching a boat to Riverside is easier than catching one to Downtown Disney, but it's still a wait. If you want to try a horse-drawn carriage ride, you've got to go over there. That's also where they have the bike and boat rentals. Most of the staff was friendly and helpful, with the exception of one person on the Bell Services staff. Twice he gave the impression of not wanting to help me, and I had to force him to help me on the second occasion. But he was clearly the odd-man-out on the staff, as the rest of them were always ready to help. When compared with the Value Resorts, I'd say the only step up was atmosphere and location. It really felt like there were a lot less kids around, and if felt more calm and relaxing. And, despite the wait for transportation, it really is nice to be so close to Downtown Disney. I'd recommend renting a car instead of using Disney transportation.

When visiting Disney World, always make reservations far in advance. The hotel can offer a nice breakfast, but you'll want sit-down meals for lunch and dinner. Disney's restaurants are always packed.

Great Vacation

Hotel was clean and staff was great. This is our 5th time to Disney and this resort was as good as all other Mid-Level hotels. Close to everything, large pool and beautiful grounds Only issue was at checkin where our adjoining rooms were in the booking even after I called Disney direct a month early. The local staff upgraded us to a better view and the rooms we wanted! Stay was great and would recommend to anyone.

Terrific family fun

The hotel was exactly what we expected: clean, family friendly, and engaging. We were on the plane when we noticed our daughter forgot a valuable souvenir. We called when we landed and they sent someone to the room, and immediately shipped it to us. Their superior service did not end at check out.

Just okay!

This is a modest hotel. All food served on paper plates,plastic forks, knifes and spoons. Checked in at at about 11 pm. No offer to help with bags, room located away from check in. This is a good place for families with children that don't want to spend a lot on location.
