I'll try and break this down by major categories: Resort - Clean, service was friendly, but the bellhops apparently don't work in the rain (what?!). The pool was a lot of fun and the amenities were nice. Everything was cared for in the meticulous way that you'd expect from Disney. Considering the discount we had (a promotion Disney was running),... More

This is my third Disney resort experiences and a very good one at that! The rooms were well themed without being over the top. They were clean and well kept, we had no issues getting extra shampoos, towels and soaps as needed. The dining hall was noisy, and crowded but that is to be expected. Sometimes we did have to...

Stayed here in may and this was our 3 trip to Disneyworld and the 4th DW resort we stayed at. This is a great moderate priced hotel. It is not as small as French Quarter but not as big as the other moderate hotels. This is a great value for the money. But just know what to expect and plan... More

Couldn't ask for more. Free shuttles, pools, a great restaurant, tons of kid activities and even carriage rides. Will definitely go again. The housekeeping staff does a wonderful job. There is also a ferry to Downtown Disney.

This was my first time staying at the Port Orleans and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel has a gorgeous down south feel with Magnolia trees and plenty of greenery. We were there for a convention and despite the crowd were didn't have to wait long for check in. You have a short 20 min ride on the boats to... More

We stayed at this hotel because of the ambiance and the size of the rooms. Both paid off very WELL! Good room size (tad bit bigger than the Disney value resorts and the extra room makes a difference) and beautiful grounds. Just gorgeous. They had great activities for the kids and lovely pools (one main one that was always a... More

Stayed in Bldg 15. Close to everything. Love the fun attention to detail in the rooms. Really fits the Alligator Bayou theme. Corner room was light & cheery. LHMC101971? Mini fridge & wall safe. Grounds are beautifully landscaped. Great pools with kid activities. See the giant waterwheel & old tool collection display in Boatwright's Dining Hall. Would stay here again.

Did a family vacation, combined the Disney Cruise on the ship, the Dream and then we did the parks. We did the 5 day 4 night cruise to Nassau Bahamas and then to Castaway Cay. The cruise was SPECTACULAR. The islands where breath taking. The Caribbean with its beautiful blue waters and the white sugar sand on the beach is... More

This was my first stay at a Disney Hotel, I guess I expected more. We had a great location in Parterre Place on the 2nd floor corner, near the parking lot so it was easy to get our bags inside. The doors open to the outside which I didn't expect and don't really like. We had a royal room and... More

My favorite Disney hotel so far, the staff very helpful and nice. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The grounds are simply beautiful lots of trees and plants. The walkways are very well lit, nice relaxing change from busy parks. Would recommend to all family and friends.
