Tip Time Tuesday – Port Orleans French Quarter – A Review

Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter is one of my family’s favorite Disney resorts.  This quaint and intimate resort is beautifully landscaped with great architectural touches.  The wrought iron balconies hold true to its New Orleans theming! The hot beneigts and lattes found at Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory alone are worth the stay.  One of the reasons we enjoy this resort is the size.  This is one of Disney’s smaller resorts with only 1008 guest rooms (it’s sister resort, Port Orleans Riverside, has 2000 guest rooms).  With fewer guests staying here the bus lines are less crowded. Once off the bus after a long day at the park you are in your room unwinding in less than 5 minutes. Other moderate resorts are much larger and are centrally located around a large lake. This is not the case with Port Orleans French Quarter. This resort is located along the Sassagoula riverbank.

Looking for some nightlife after the parks close?  The Scat Cat’s Club lounge located at the resort offers nightly entertainment and a place to grab a cocktail or late night snack.  Want more options?  Hop of the ferry at the resort dock and head to Downtown Disney. Looking for more activities at the resort? Riverside next door, offers afternoon and nightly activities for the whole family to enjoy. Bingo, Dance Offs, Pool games, campfires and evening movies under the stars.  You can even rent fishing poles, boats or sign your young buccaneers for a Bayou Pirate Adventure. Couples can take a relaxing old fashioned horse drawn carriage ride.

The resort has just recently had a complete facelift. The rooms have been updated so all of the furniture and fixtures are new. It now has queen size beds rather than full size beds as well. You can take a video tour of the resort grounds here. You may also want to check out this video tour of the rooms at Port Orleans French Quarter
