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. Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort is themed to the “Big Easy” and its jazz and Mardi Gras influences. This moderately-priced Disney resort is near the Disney Springs area, close by the Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort, like all Disney resorts, is smoke-free. Designated outdoor smoking areas are indicated on the Resort Map.

Be sure to enjoy the atmosphere after dark; it’s lit and really does feel like you are “there.” Also the boat ride after dark is a nice option when things aren’t too busy.

The beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter are a delicious, unique treat!

Port Orleans French Quarter food court has a huge cookie ice cream sandwich with two big cookies and three scoops of ice cream. It is big enough for a few to share.

Check out the names of the streets in Port Orleans French Quarter: Cafe au Lait, Rue de Begga, and other cute names like that.

There is a walkway between the two Port Orleans resorts (Riverside and French Quarter).
