Reviews of Port Orleans French Quarter Resort Port Orleans French Quarter is an intimate resort- with just over a thousand rooms, it’s the smallest of Disney’s moderate resorts. That’s one of the qualities that bring its fans back, vacation after vacation. This moderately-priced Disney resort is near the Downtown Disney area, close by the Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

    This is our favorite resort. Our last trip was in January 2012. They were refurbishing the courtyard behind the main building so it wasn’t as pretty as usual but I’m sure when we go back this January it’ll be worth it.

    Pros – small size means you can be in the furthest building and make it to breakfast in less than 5 minutes. I have a 3 year old so not having to walk too far with her was a must. We always go in family groups and have never had a problem getting connecting or side by side rooms. Love the greeter by the front door – my daughter has tons of beads and plastic coins from our last few trips.

    Cons – no sit down restaurant for when you want a nicer meal close to “home”. We did walk over to Riverside one night and their sit down is great.

    Tips
    There is a hidden Mickey in the check in lobby. Ask a cast member to help you find it. There’s also one in the seating area of the food court which we couldn’t find. good luck!

    We’ve had cases of bottled water delivered from Staples (free delivery) to the hotel so we don’t have to buy it in the parks. It actually comes to the bell hop and the front desk usually has no clue it’s there. So if you do this call the bell hop directly. This is a great money savings tip.

    If you’re on the dining plan and use a lunch at the food court check and see if there are any leftover yogurt parfaits from breakfast in the cooler. They’ll let you use this as a desert on the meal plan and you can save for breakfast the next morning.

    Great Resort with Seniors in your party. A little smaller means a little less walking for them! My 80 year old parents LOVED it!

    Could not stay again due to our partys size. I enjoyed my stay there two years ago but we dropped by this time just for the beignets.

    This is my favorite moderate resort. I love the theme and the boat to Downtown Disney. I love that it is compact and now has queen sized beds. I also really love the beignets!

    The best thing about this resort is that it is smaller than the other moderate resorts! It feels so quaint. The food court is awesome with breakfast, lunch and dinner options. The pool is nice size and not far from the main building so it is easy to grab a refill for your mug and head to the pool. We were in the furthest building from the main building and it was maybe a 2 minute walk. Having two queen beds at this resort now is a big benefit for staying here too. I really like this moderate resort.

    I have had the opportunity to stay at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter twice in 2011 since the refurbishment and it is my personal favorite moderate resort. I especially like the small size of the resort which gives it a more intimate feel than the other three moderates and makes it very easy to navigate on foot – there just isn’t a faraway room location. The queen bedding gives the newly decorated room a “deluxe feel”, and on my last stay this month we scored a corner room which enhances the natural lighting of the room.

    POFQ has a true New Orleans feel in terms of theme down to the mature oak tree lining the pathways and the beignets in the Sassagoula food court.

    In my opinion it’s the best in class!

    We stayed at POFQ for the first time last winter and loved it. At that time, Bldg. 6 had just finished their remodel and we were in it on the 3rd floor…corner room. The room was excellent. Our only complaint (and it’s minor) is that our room was rarely cleaned before 3:30 and many times we were already back at the resort for a rest before dinner and had to wait for the room to be cleaned. We were okay with there not being a table service restaurant as we seemed always to eat dinner elsewhere. The food court was fine for us for breakfast. The grounds and amenities were fine, too. The bus service was very good and we loved the boat to DTD…although one day it was out of service and there wasn’t any obvious reason for that, so we took the bus to DTD that day. I’m sure we will stay there again in the future as it provided a very relaxing atmosphere after the busy active days we’d have in the parks.

    We have stayed at PO-FQ every year for the past four years and absolutely love it! Our favorite part is the size of the resort. Nothing is more than a five minute walk from your room. The food court has a great variety to choose from. The rooms are always clean.

    We stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter for ten nights last month, and loved it! For a small resort, POFQ is loaded with The Big Easy atmosphere.

    Entering the resort was fun because the door greeter always had a friendly word to say and Marti Gras coins for the kids. All of the cast members we’ve encountered, from mousekeeping to concierge, were helpful.

    We loved the food court’s Marti Gras parade displays, and the food offerings specific to New Orleans such as the jambalaya, po’boys, and beignets. The jazz music added to the food court atmosphere, and for additional music Elliot Dyson puts on a good show at Scat Cats on select evenings.

    We were in Building 6. The walk to any building at POFQ is not too long because it’s a compact resort and it is pretty walk throughout the resort. We enjoyed all of the details of the French Quarter, such as the City of Port Orleans manholes, the street lights, the hitching posts, and street signs that say “Rue D’ Bega” and “Cafe au Lait Way.”

    Our room was nicely designed, and mousekeeping did a good job of keeping it clean throughout our stay. The queen beds were comfortable, and the guys of the family enjoyed watching sports on the flat screen TV. There are some Hidden Mickeys scattered throughout the room, which are fun to find!

    Our favorite parts of our stay at POFQ were spending time at the pool and doing the various resort activities. Nearly every day, we’d head back from the parks early so we wouldn’t miss out on pool time fun and the Marti Gras Pool Party with water games and a dance party. I also enjoyed some relaxing time at Marti Grogs, a perfect place for a refreshing drink on a hot afternoon. In the evening, we’d visit the Campfire on the Bayou and enjoy roasting marshmallows. We’d end our day with watching a nightly outdoor movie in the courtyard. One night they showed The Princess and the Frog, and it was amazing to watch that while sitting near the New Orleans buildings and hearing the resort’s horse and carriage go down the street!

    The boat to Downtown Disney was a relaxing ride, and strolling the pathway near the river in the evening provides a romantic setting for adults. Bus service to and from the parks was prompt. We usually waited less than 10 minutes for a bus, and our longest wait was 20 minutes when we just missed a bus. The bus stops at moderate resorts are covered, and that is a nice perk to have in the strong sun and rain.

    We came home with a lot of good Port Orleans memories, and would like to stay at Port Orleans French Quarter again someday!

    I returned from my first stay at Port Orleans French Quarter less than two weeks ago. I’ve been waiting to stay at this resort for years, literally. This time, the wait paid off. My sister and I have decided that this is our new “home” for when we visit the World!

    I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and theming of the resort. I was also pleasantly surprised by the small, intimate feel found here. It seems that any room is at most a 5 minute walk from the food court, bus stop, pool, etc.

    I initially expected the pool area to be childish, based on pictures of the resort. I was able to spend about 3 afternoons at the pool and was happy that my first impression was wrong. The free form pool is big and never felt overcrowded and had a great “tropical” vibe. Warning….watch out for the wasps! I got stung my first day at the pool at it hurt worse than any other bee sting. A cast member told me it is a mud dauber wasp. They are black and have big wings and are found buzzing near the greenery which is near most of the pool chairs.

    One night I was walking to my room to change for dinner and smelled a campfire. I walked around the building a found the Cajun Campfire, where marshmallow roasting was taking place. Of course I had to participate and was surprised to find out that guests could roast as many marshmallows as they want. This was a really nice touch!

    Several times I took the walk down to Riverside. From my room to the Riverside food court it was about a ten minute walk. I really enjoyed seeing the big mansions across the river and passing the horse and carriage rides too.

    The food court at French Quarter had a nice variety. The Shrimp Po’ Boy and Beignets were delicious! I first thought it was on the small side but I never had trouble finding a seat. One night I had dinner at the Riverside though and I did find the food court there to have a slightly better menu.

    I think the highlight of the resort is the boat ride to Downtown Disney! This was so enjoyable and relaxing that I could easily give up a day in the park to ride the boat and swim in the pool.

    I’ve now stayed at every Value and Moderate resort and can safely say that French Quarter is my absolute favorite!

    This resort is so beautiful that on our visit in May we actually spent two days out of our ten day visit at the resort and didn’t even go to the parks!!! The tree and flower lined paths are picture perfect, with lots of quiet places to just sit and enjoy your surroundings. The walking path between the French Quarter and Riverside is also beautiful. Tree lined, along the river with benches to sit and relax. You can look across the river to the Riverside resort buildings that look so much like plantation homes that you get the feeling you’re in a different time and place all together. The magnolia trees were in full bloom and they were so beautiful.
    The staff were all wonderful, room was large and roomy and very very clean. And though the restaurant was good, we did walk to Riverside on occasions to have a little better selection.
    A great time can be had in the evenings listening to the entertainment, great jazz singer, fun time had by all.
    One of the nicest things was being able to go by boat to Downtown Disney, that was so much fun, along with the horse drawn carriage that you can get from the Riverside resort.
    Pool was great also. I didn’t use it but hubby had fun.
    Within a couple weeks of returning home we booked next vacation at the French Quarter. Now I’m counting down the days. I don’t think I’d stay anywhere else on Disney property. When you are there it’s hard to believe that they have around 1,000 rooms. It seems like you are in your own private little world. I would highly recommend this resort. I give it five stars all around!!!

    We have stayed at the French Quarter several times and just love it. It is small and easy to get around even for someone with mobility issues.

    The double sinks make it nice for a family to get going and the rooms are a very nice size. The theming is so warm and friendly.

    The boat ride to Downtown Disney is calming and such a nice way to relax after a hurried day at the parks.

    The fact that there is no sit down restaurant is not overwhelming bad since you can pop over to Riverside in a few minutes, The food court is great (love the steak and cheese philly!!) and got to love tge beignets!!!

    We love it here and will be back soon!!

    So far this is my favorite moderate resort. We really enjoyed the resort being so small, everything was only a short walk away. The theming is great. For us having a fridge in the room is a must. My son loved the dragon pool and it never felt crowded. The resort only has a food court, but had many options.

    We really like the new room decor at Port Orleans French Quarter. We especially like the new queen size beds! I think that this makes the rooms much more comfortable and functional for most people. Rooms also have a coffee maker and a refrigerator which is another big plus.

    The theming at this resort is fantastic. We enjoy walking through the tree-lined “streets” and laughing at the fun names like Rue Da Bega. There is also a great walkway that follows the river and leads to Port Orleans Riverside. It really captures that New Orleans feel.

    The pool are with the big dragon is really fun and guests can also take advantage of the pool and recreation at the nearby sister resort – Port Orleans Riverside. Boat transportation is available to take guest to Downtown Disney and it is a very pleasant ride.

    This resort does not have a table service restaurant, but their food court has good options. The Beignets are really good, and they also have a fantastic home-made cookie and ice cream sandwich. It was really large and our family split it ;)

    This resort is small and easy to navigate. The theming is great, and the recent room improvements really make this resort a good value.

    Date Of Stay: June 11 through June 19, 2010

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: Package including Quick Service Dining Plan was $3100

    Room Sleeps : 4

    Room Size: it was ok for us. We had 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 9 and 12).

    Transportation: never had problems with buses at the resort. Sometimes there were 2 buses going to the same park.

    Don’t Miss: The water taxi to Downtown Disney. We really enjoyed this relaxing ride. We also got to see the Treehouse Villas but using the water taxi. The pool was nice too.

    Room Location Suggestion: We were in building 5. Just a few steps from the pool, main building and laundry facilty. The bus stop was very close too.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: Take the boat trip to DTD.

    Comments: We are from Louisiana and just loved the theme of the resort. It was just like the French Quarter in New Orleans only a lot cleaner. The music was great. We will stay there again.

    We enjoyed Disney Port Orleans French Quarter. It is a relatively small and quaint resort. No matter what building you are in, the main building, pool, and transportation won’t be far.

    The theming is also very appealing at Port Orleans French Quarter. The whole resort feels like a very clean New Orleans area.

    The main building that houses the lobby, check-in area and food court is beautiful and features a glass atrium area, Dixieland music, and fountain.

    The rest of the resort has tree-lined “streets” with ivy covered archways and iron scroll work on the balconies. Make sure you check out the street signs throughout the resort. You may find yourself walking down Rue D’Baga or Revelers Row.

    The rooms aren’t huge, but they are comfortable. Standard rooms have 2 double beds and also feature a small refrigerator and coffee pot. I really like that the sink and vanity area is separate from the rest of the bathroom. That is a nice feature for families!

    The boat to Downtown Disney is relaxing and a really nice activity. The pool area is themed with a serpent slide that is really fun.

    There are many small gardens and sitting areas located throughout the resort. Try to make some time to relax and enjoy these areas.

    The food court is small but features some food that will appeal to all. Don’t miss the beignets! A new Orleans tradition that is deep fried and covered in confectioner’s sugar!

    Date Of Stay: May 9 – 13, 2008

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: $656.00 (4 nights), AAA Discount, plus adder for the 18 year old (new to us this year)

    Room Sleeps : 4

    Don’t Miss: The Beingets at the food court, the boat ride to DTD, the grounds.

    Room Location Suggestion: It doesn’t really matter at this resort, the buildings are all in close proximity to the main building/bus stop.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: we found that if we knew we would be using EMH, we drove our rental car to the park because the bus situation was not very efficient since the resort shares buses with POR, leaving MK after EMH last year was a disaster, it took over and hour to return to the resort, so this year we drove.

    Comments: Be sure to spend time wandering around the landscape is beautiful!

    Comments: I really, really wanted to like this resort, but after experiencing it, I wouldn’t want to stay here again. It is very dated compared to other resorts. Check in was easy; I had requested building 4 and got it. The CM checking us in saw it was my birthday and asked me who my favorite character was. When I told him Tinkerbell, he looked a little uncomfortable and then said, “Well, she’s too small to hold a pen to sign her name, is there anyone else?” Boy did that tickle me – he looked truly conflicted! The resort had beautiful landscaping. Our room was very convenient, and plenty big enough. As others have said, that curtain between the beds and sleep area is a godsend. The cleanliness of the room was adequate – I saw mildew on the shower curtain. My 10 year old, whose father is a contractor, was especially taken with the marble slab at the back of the tub. ???? He thought marble and porcelain were odd choices to use together. I just stifled my laughter and smiled at him. The food court was a strange setup, and small to me; I would not want to try to use the food court at super-busy times of the day, especially if the resort was at capacity. My sons used the pool one night and my 10 year old declared it “Awesome!” My biggest irritation was with the bus system at this resort. What is up with it??? We have stayed at all levels of resorts at WDW, and I’ve never had to deal with erratic or nonexistent buses anywhere else. And it was at the resort AND at the parks, too – at Epcot at closing time, we walked leisurely toward the exit after Illuminations and by the time we got to our bus stop, most others were almost empty, and the Port Orleans one was PACKED beyond the bus stop queue. This trip we flew so we had no other way of getting around, but even if we drove we love not having to drive, so the bus situation at POFQ is a big drawback for us. My 16 year old daughter, a Disney veteran, stayed at Riverside with another family in April and warned me about the buses, but I attributed that to Spring Break crowds. Now I don’t think so. We also tried the beignets; I was neutral about them, my younger son loved them. I think I was expecting a more delicate dough, and these were like fried biscuits, not flaky at all. Hope you enjoyed our review!

  1. Date Of Stay: April 26 – May 3, 2008

    We drove down as usual. We left the house, in Indiana, around 5am Saturday and arrived in Cordell, GA around 4:30 pm. It was a pleasant trip down. I mention the trip because of the motel we stayed at, The Radison, in Cordell. I love this motel,if you are in need of a stop over on your way down, this is your motel! We stay here every time we drive and so far so good. No problem at all, the rooms are always clean and comfy and they have a nice breakfast in the AM. So, after our breakfast of sausage,eggs and biscuits, we were on our way to the World. It is about a 3.5-4 hour trip from Cordell.

    We arrived on WDW property around 2pm. We checked into POFQ and there was no wait at all. The only complaint would be that there were some band kids leaving as we got there and they were crowded all around outside the front doors, so much so that we had to re route ourselves so that we could get into the lobby! I could not believe that not one person, not even an adult, attempted to get out of the way so we could get to the lobby. But the check in was smooth, very smooth, we were in our room within a few minutes of arriving.

    Room number was 6411 ( I believe) I have looked everywhere for my check out papers but have misplaced them, sorry! Anyway, the room was fine and we were good with the location too. It was a short walk to the lobby and food court which was nice.

    We used our own transportation so I can not speak for that. I can say that we used their transportation in the past and have found it to be very convenient and really like the fact that we were picked up first and dropped off first. One night we went to DTD with the use of the boats. If you have the time to wait for the boats and take this nice leisurely trip down the Sassagoula river then you should do it! We almost always get some nice background stories about Disney from the captain.

    The food court is as good as any of the others. I find that every time we stay at this resort or even when we have visited, the food court does not get too crazy. Seems even when it has been somewhat busy we always manage to get a table easily enough. I can not say that about all of the resorts we have stayed at. The Cast members at the food court were particularly friendly this time around. There was only one incident and it was definitely the exception to the way things had been going for this trip. It involved a pizza girl and her ” I am tired and I don’t care” attitude. Other then that, it was all good. This was our first time using the DDP and they were very helpful and* correct* in explaining it to us!

    We added one more day to our stay just before arriving and the front desk handled it perfectly, there was no interruption of our stay to change rooms or anything at all. They did good.

    Mousecleaning did a fair job. I left a tip everyday though and did not get one towel animal!! Boohoo!

    Overall the resort was nice, quiet and friendly. It was located near everything so driving was easy. I love this resort and will stay here again in the future. I always recommend it to friends and family as the best moderate, IMHO.

    OH and we got a bounceback offer while there, we are going back in Dec to the Beach Club with the family at a great savings!!

    Don’t Miss: The walkway over to Port Orleans Riverside. It is really a nice walk. Also the boat to Downtown Disney is fun too!

    Room Location Suggestion: Any location would be fine because the resort is very compact. Some may want to reserve a water view room. It is very quaint.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: At certain times of the years, special pricing may be available for FL residents, AP holders and even the general public.

    Comments: There is no table service restaurant available at this resort. There is a food court and a lounge though. You can walk or take a bus to nearby Port Orleans Riverside and eat at their table service restaurant.

    Date Of Stay: 10/18/07-10/23/07

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: $130/night with AAA.

    Room Sleeps : 2-4

    Don’t Miss: The beignets; horse drawn carriage ride.

    Room Location Suggestion: If you visit without kids I would suggest rooms in either building 5 or 6. We have stayed in 6123 and 5223, both corner rooms with king beds overlooking the water. The rooms are close enough to the pool, but far enough away that you don’t hear all the commotion.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: If you want to request a specific room, especially a room with a King bed, fax a room request through to Room Assignments (407-934-5353) seven days before your arrival date.

    Comments: This is a great Disney moderate hotel. There’s a walking path between Port Orleans French Quarter and Port Orleans Riverside that is great for walks at dusk or morning runs for all you who like that sort of thing. There’s also a boat to take you to Downtown Disney! Don’t miss the 25 minute horse drawn carriage ride from Port Orleans Riverside through Port Orleans French Quarter.

    Date Of Stay: Sept 2007 (7th – 15th)

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: Package Deal included room tickets and dining plan was $700 week.

    Room Sleeps : 4

    Don’t Miss: Love the pool. Also enjoyed the food court.

    Room Location Suggestion: Had a room right by the food court. Small resort so nothing is very far from the main “hub” of the hotel.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: Take time to look around it is very small but so quaint. Boat to Downtown Disney was wonderful.

    Comments: We found this resort to be quite and easy to get around. Enjoyed everything about it.

    Date Of Stay: 5/10/07 – 5/14/07

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: AP rate $139.50

    Room Sleeps : 4 Adults.

    Don’t Miss: The Beinegts (spelling? – fried sweet pillows of dough – heaven).

    Room Location Suggestion: All of the buildings are in close proximity to the main building, the only suggestion would be to request a water view room, it is very pretty, and you can take a chair out on to the balcony.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: No TS, so if you want to have a TS meal be sure to make an ADR over at Boatwrights POR.

    Comments: Small children may not enjoy the boatride to DTD when it is dusk or dark, my DD did not like it the last time we stayed (2002), and even at 17 was still uneasy about it?? Also, if you go in the extremely Humid months remember the bug repellent for the boatride, it was one of the places where I was bitten badly.

    Date Of Stay: April 14-21,2007

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: between $145-$165/night (sad to say, but booked through AAA and didn’t get itemized bill (room, park hopper tickets, dining plan all included in our total cost).

    Room Sleeps : 4

    Room Size: with 3 adult sized folks (6′, 170 lbs, 5’2″ 150 lbs, 6′, 96 lbs, so not overly large), and a 13yo (5′, 80 lbs), my older son thought the rooms were a little cramped

    Transportation: busses at the resort itself were not consistent. There could be 2 busses in a row for one destination, and none for another location for 20-30 minutes. Note that this was not crowd driven. One bus driver might call for back-up busses, if many were waiting for a particular destination, however, we had 2 drivers tell us that they could not call for busses for our desired destination……AK, TL

    Don’t Miss: We liked the pool/spa area. Pool not noticebly heated, for April. Boatwrights in RS was a cool history lesson….my husband is a timber framer, and discussed the numerous wood working tools displayed throughout the restaurant with our sons.

    Room Location Suggestion: We were in building 1. It was non-smoking, which is important to me, with allergies. It is the farthest building from the main entrance and food court area. That said, it was not far to walk to those areas. It was next to the “river” and the boat landing, and easy to catch the river boat to Riverside (and Boatwrights, a nice table service restaurant) or DTD.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: Take the boat trip to DTD.

    Comments: Based on suggestions from others in this group, we took our own ground coffee and filters. We were disappointed that the housekeeping folks did not consistently supply coffee cups for us. On the day of arrival, there were 4 disposable cups. We used them on the first 2 days. They were not replaced on the 3rd day, so we used the bathroom glasses, and left the dirty ones in the sink. They were removed, but not replaced, and disposable cups were not furnished. When my husband asked housekeeping about it, we received 4 more disposable cups. When we used those, they were again not replaced. So, I guess a further suggestion would be to take your own cups as well.
