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.
With approximately 1,000 guest rooms, French Quarter is the smallest of all the moderates. Many people love this resort for its small size: with only seven exterior buildings housing the rooms, you are never too far from the bus, dining, or pool. There are a variety of room types available: standard view, garden view, king bed, pool view, and river view. Guaranteed accessible rooms may be booked as well.
Whether you're looking to have some fun at your resort before heading out to the parks, or ready for a quick break to cool down from the mid day heat, you'll definitely enjoy a swim in the heated outdoor pool, Dabloon Lagoon. Here, you can swim under the water fountain- but watch out for the crocodiles! They may splash you unexpectedly! It’s a thrill for the young and the young at heart to slide down the tongue of the Sea Serpent. Children can let their imaginations soar at the playground or go to the arcade for some fun games.
If you are looking for some romance while at the resort, I suggest a horse-drawn carriage ride around the French Quarter and over to Port Orleans Riverside! You could also relax in one of the many quiet and secluded garden areas, or explore the beautifully landscaped grounds. There is a heated hot tub located a bit away from the pool, where you can sit and relax and let all your worries melt away. Did you notice the railings as you were walking by? Are they all the same?
Do you want a drink to wind down from the day? Well, you are in luck! You can relax in Scat Cat’s Lounge located off the main lobby, or you can sit at the open air bar located near the pool. Both locations serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
There are a variety of ways to get around Walt Disney World from French Quarter. You can take the buses to any of the theme parks or the Ticket and Transportation Center. A relaxing boat ride will take you down the Sassagoula River to Downtown Disney or Riverside Resort. Taxies are also available- just contact Bell Services. If you'd like to enjoy the parks one last time before going home on your check out day, you can store your luggage for free at bell services. They will hold it for you until it is time to leave.
If you're looking for a romantic resort full of beauty and charm, Port Orleans French Quarter should definitely be at the top of your list for your next visit!
