Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter

You can find more pictures of this resort by clicking here . Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter is a fun and exciting resort with a touch of romance.  When you first arrive, you are greeted by a colorfully dressed doorman who opens the wonderful world of the French Quarter.  Here you will find surprises around every corner; all you have to do is look closely.  The lobby is a wide open space with magnificent iron work, a beautiful fountain and a touch of the Mardi Gras theme. When you first arrive at your room, the first thing you may notice is the extra space! With the duel sink area separate from the shower area and a pull curtain for privacy, more than one person can get ready at a time.  Can you find a hidden Mickey in your room?

Soft openings for the general public have finally begun for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster .

You will need to be prepared for sudden closures…even if you have been in line for an hour. They are just all a part of soft openings The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will most likely stay in soft opening status until the official opening on May 28 th .

Gluten Free Experience at Be Our Guest Restaurant

Dining at Be Our Guest for table service is truly a magical experience.   We chose to celebrate our 14 th wedding anniversary there because Beauty and the Beast is my very favorite Disney movie, and we had not had the chance to dine there yet.   We have always appreciated how Disney has treated our family’s celiac disease, but Be Our Guest really exceeded our expectations!   We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation, and checked in at the kiosk, making sure to mention our food restrictions again.  Once our name was called, the dining experience began.   They gave us a candelabra to carry down to the door.  The table was set so beautifully!   Just the details in this alone won us over on this restaurant.  We were all reluctant to unfold the rose napkins. It only got better from there.   Normally, when restaurants serve bread, they bring out gluten free rolls that taste like cardboard.   Not at Be Our Guest.   These rolls were light, fluffy, and all-together
