Intricate railings, cobblestone streets and courtyards of flowers capture the spirit and romance of New Orleans' French Quarter. Dine on Creole delicacies, plunge into Doubloon Lagoon with its fantastic water slide or relish the Mardi Gras atmosphere. 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.

Complimentary Wi-Fi service is now available in all Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

Disney Hotel Resort guests also enjoy their Extra Magic Hours Benefit. On select days, Disney Resort hotel guests can enter a Disney Theme Park an hour early-and on select evenings, enjoy a Park up to two hours after regular closing time.

Then the gang will be ready to head back to the same Theme Park for more fun! Don't forget your Magic Your Way Tickets with Park Hopper Option! The Park Hopper option is the only way you will be able to fully enjoy the Extra Magic Hours Benefit when the extra hours in the morning is a different Disney theme park than the extra hours in the evening.

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.

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.

A Magical Place to Stay

Port Orleans French Quarter is my new favorite Disney resort! The grounds were lovely, and we enjoyed walking along the river as well as taking the water taxi to Downtown Disney. Our room was quiet and located close to the buses and the dining room. I would definitely stay here again!

Best Disney Moderate

The kids loved the pool and the room decor (although they were creeped out by the food court decor). Convenience to bus stops, bus route, layout of hotel, food court, pool, boat service to Downtown Disney - all of these make French Quarter the best moderate for our family!

LOVED the French Quarter

We had a wonderful time at the Port Orleans French Quarter resort. We have stayed at other Disney resorts and found many of them to be too big but this one was the perfect size and so conveniently located next to Epcot, our favorite Disney park! We will be back!!

Get a case of bottled waters to keep in your in-room mini fridge. We took them to drink with our meals and along with us to the parks.

Great place to stay!

We love Port Orleans. This was our first stay in the French Quarter, usually stay at Riverside, and we loved it. Very convenient, loved the jazz music and the pool area. Great boat ride to Downtown Disney. Highly recommend this place for the family or just a romantic get away!

lovely Disney hotel

The employees were very friendly and helpful. The grounds and gardens are simply beautiful. We loved the boat rides. Easy to walk to everywhere on the grounds. Pool was fun. Room a little small, but clean and well-maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Wonderful trip!

We couldn't be happier with our stay at Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter Resort. It's a beautiful hotel with great staff, an amazing pool and numerous other amenities. It's on Disney property so your transportation to and from the parks is always taken care of. It has it's own gift shop filled not just with souvenirs but practical things guests might need during their stay. Definitely give this hotel a try.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Because the hotel is on Disney property, all guests get to stay longer on select nights in the Disney parks (Disney's extra magic hours)! This is a great opportunity to get on those really popular rides because the lines are much shorter!

Great value

Really pleasant hotel with lovely grounds and pool. Not too big and crowded which is great after a day at Disney. Great option if you want a Disney hotel but don't want to pay too much

Buy a Disney soda cup $18 for 3+ day stay. Refil as much as you wish and can also be used at other Disney hotels. So if you fancy. A mid day break take monorail to a hotel grab a free drink and chill out for a while

Great choice for a Disney moderate resort

We stayed at the French Quarter for the first time on a recent trip, and we have now stayed at all the Disney moderate resorts. We liked this particular resort because it is so small compared to the other Disney resorts - you can simply walk anywhere and be there within a minute. The pool was great and they have convenient boat access to Downtown Disney. It is tough to say that it is a decent value because honestly none of the Disney resorts are really a good value! However, it is fun to stay on site to be close to the "magic" and enjoy perks such as extra magic hours. The rooms are very clean, and there is a small refrigerator. The only negatives I would mention are the dark lighting in the bathroom and the loud flushing of the toilets (you WILL hear your neighbors flushing their toilets - WOOSH!). Also, the way the front doors are arranged if you have inconsiderate neighbors you may hear the doors being slammed when they exit/arrive - the worst offended of this was actually the housekeeper who was cleaning the room adjacent to ours one morning! Otherwise, excellent stay at the French Quarter!

Family Vacation

Fabulous location. Great value for the price. Easy to get around in the park. Grest breakfast. Could offer more fast passes at the parks. A lot of construction at Dowmtown Disney.
