Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter
Ranked #66 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Just returned from a week long stay at Walt Disney World. We stayed at the Port Orleans, French Quarter Resort. We have stayed twice at the Caribbean Beach Resort which we also enjoyed. We really loved the French Quarter. The grounds are beautiful and everything is a short walking distance from the rooms. We picked this resort for this trip for the queen size beds. Double beds just don't do it for my very tall husband and this resort was in the price range. The room had a microwave and a small refrigerator, very comfortable beds and a nice dressing area with the bathroom. Room was spotless when we arrived and ready too! Loved the boat ride to Downtown Disney. Bus waits were reasonable, except for one time which we blamed on the storms threatening the area. The pool area was lovely, lots of life guards during the day. My family members only used the pool after we had spent the days at the parks so it was late at night and the pool was pretty much empty. We really recommend this Resort.

Room Tip: Building 5 on the other side of the pool. Great choice.

We stayed at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter several times and loved it. This is Disney World’s smallest resort, so no matter which building we have been in it was always a short walk to the main areas. With the cobblestone walkways and lighted paths, it has a more romantic feel to us then the other three moderate resorts. The pool was very nice and my nieces had tons of fun on the sea serpent waterslide. I like the proximity to Downtown Disney; the longest we’ve had to wait to hop on a water taxi to get from French Quarter to Downtown was about 20 minutes.

I have stayed at the disneys port orleans resort 3 times now. We arrived over 2 weeks ago and have enjoyed our stay for many reasons the rooms have been refurbushed and are very clean and fresh, the hotel is one of the smaller resorts so no matter where your accomadtion is you will not be too far from the pool, restaurant, bus & boat stops. The boat to downtown is such a lovely trip and the buses to all of the disney parks are frequent so you wont ever have to wait to long to get to any of them the friendly staff are there to assist you in anyway possible - with a special mention to the childrens to team who do fun games and drawing in the reception area on rainey days which my daughter really enjoyed. as i said it was a great family holiday and we will be back next year to enjoy our disney port orleans experience!! x

This is my third time staying here at POFQ. I love it! Being a small property, it never feels too busy. The staff is friendly and we came back to the room everyday to a special towel design. I did have one issue this time, the air conditioner was not working properly. I called at midnight and someone was at the door within 10 minutes. The man fixed it and I had no problems after that. This is the only resort I will stay at.

We stayed there for 4 nights in June, spending 5 days in the 4 parks.
Stayed at one of the value resorts 5 years ago, and decided we would not do that again. it was simply to crowdy and noisy and ...........
Here, we got exactly what we wanted, really felt quite relaxed in the evenings, so believe the extra money were well-spent.
We drove ourselves to the parks, did not want to be dependant on the bus-system - queues and waiting time is not a strong side, when going to/from the parks. So cannot review that part from here, but 5 years ago, it could indeed take some time.
MIght seem more expensive than staying at another nearby Partner hotel, but the perks of being in Disney surroundings, being able to pay with the hotel key, free parking etc. indeed seems to be worth it.
This hotel will be on top of our list again in a few years, when we come back!

My wife and I stayed here for the marathon and it was fine for our needs. We just wanted an onsite hotel that wasn't too pricey. It was good for the two of us but, if we had our kids we definitely would have stayed at a different hotel. The food options are limited and the pool area is small.
