“Wonderful hotel, on resort without being 'in your face Disney'”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 4 nights during the American Spring Break.
We stayed in Block 1, room 1107, on the ground floor at the back of the building. So, on paper one of the 'worst located rooms'. In reality it was still, even though one of the furthest rooms from the pool & the restaurant, only 2/3 mins walk from the centre of the hotel.
Overlooking the car park we still had a lovely, shrub lined walkway outside our window (if on upper floors I suppose you would have seen the car park). We loved our room, great size, quiet, brilliantly located for the boat to Downtown Disney.
The beds were huge and comfortable - even big enough for my 13yo son and husband although I got the better deal and shared with my 7yo daughter!
Newly refurbished bathrooms are massive and beautifully decorated.
Free coffee machines lovely but make sure to request extra sachets as you only get a few.
Great flat screen tv, plenty of hanging and drawer space, nice bedding and guest services delivered an extra pillow for me within half an hour!
We arrived Tuesday afternoon, relaxed in our room then got ready to go for dinner at Planet Hollywood in DD. Waited 10 mind as we'd just missed one then had the loveliest boat trip as the sunset to DD. arriving back afterwards it was wonderful to get off the boat and walk 1 min round the corner to our room.
Even if you're not on the dining plan (we didn't bother) then buy the refillable mugs. We bought for all 4 of us for about £40 which sounds a lot but even just with our morning coffee & tea and kids' soft drinks plus the soft drinks to take on the bus to the parks and a night time drink we well got our money's worth. In fact add to that the afternoons we spent by the pool those cups were a bargain!
The pool is perfectly adequate, great for my little girl who is 7 and the deeper part for 13 yr old son. I understand what some are saying on here but it has 3 sections and only one is deep for proper swimming. However f you want a 'proper pool' then this isn't it. Lovely pool bar and great kids' activities in the afternoon if you do go back.
We took our time in the mornings, breakfasted in the hotel / in our room with food we brought with us, into the parks for about 6/7 hours (take snacks and water!), back to the hotel for the afternoon for a swim/a sleep, dinner at the hotel then back to the parks for the extra magic hours. Staying on resort you must really plan your time round the extra magic hours then you can make the most of Disney and this lovely hotel.
Had the most fabulous server in the restaurant (Sassagoula Floatworks) called Rachael. She couldn't accept a tip on our last day but we went to reception to complete a card saying how great she was as she made our experience at the hotel. Well done Disney and well done Port Orleans.
I'd recommend it to anyone and we'll definitely be back :)

Though I'm not exactly a member of American society's bourgeoisie, as someone who has nevertheless enjoyed stays at the Wilderness Lodge, Beach Club, and Animal Kingdom Lodge, I feel fairly confident in saying that Port Orleans - French Quarter offers service and amenities approaching that of a "Deluxe"-level resort without requiring the sacrifice of your first through fourth-born children and acquisition of a prized exotic animal's fur to cover the room charges. It isn't perfect (the grounds are *very* large), but nothing in this world is, and staying here will certainly guarantee you and yours a wonderful and memorable experience. Don't forget to try the beignets!

We stayed here for our honeymoon and everyone was so nice and accommodating! When we told them it was our honeymoon they quickly got us a room, we didn't have to wait until check in. All the staff are really nice. The pool is great, but the jacuzzi is amazing for people who don't have kids. There was hardly anyone in it!
The room was perfect, and the king size bed was so comfortable. The tv in the room is always set on the disney info channel ( you can change it), but its a great way to help plan your week.
We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Pick a room close to the river so you can easily get to the pontoon boats that take you to downtown...

My husband & I love New Orleans so we opted for POFQ for Spring Break. Unfortunately the weather was unseasonably cold which put a huge damper on our trip. Check in was a breeze, cast members standing by to help & checked us in right away. I had requested a corner room on a high floor & got exactly that...Disney magic - our room number was exactly the same as our house address, our son thought that was so cool. The room was similar in size to the Wilderness Lodge, it was always clean, the air conditioner & heater (yes we had to use the heater) worked well. Room always well stocked with WDW tolietries, we requested early maid service (simply call housekeeping) so if we came back for an afternoon break the room was fresh. Our son love the movies on the lawn & was thrilled to see a bunny hopping around one evening while watching Toy Story. Walking distance to the pool & dining hall were perfect, not too far, not too close. We would definitely stay here again if we chose a Moderate resort.

This was our second time staying at the POFQ (April 25-29) and we have again thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the pool, the boat transportation to Downtown Disney, and the beautiful grounds of the hotel. The food court was more than adequate for our needs. The only issues we had was our dislike of the first room’s location, a problem with a room key, and a missed day of housekeeping. When you pay extra for a garden view room, you shouldn’t be able to see the parking lot; this was corrected by the very helpful front desk staff as was with the room key and a call to housekeeping had our room reset within a ½ hour. Once we were settled in our room, our vacation was perfect.

We stayed from 04/16-04/22. At check in we were given mardi gras beads and a quick overview of the resort area. We were placed in building 5, as we requested. The resort is the smallest on Disney so the walk to the the dining area and pool is not far. Beautiful gardens and theming.
Pool is lovely with plenty of chairs and clean towels. Activities went on in the pool area without disturbing those who weren't participating. Buses worked great -Only shared with Riverside twice, once returning from EPCOT in the afternoon and the other time when heading to Blizzard Beach in the morning. Food choices were okay, nothing spectacular, but even picky eaters should be able to find something. Great entertainer at Scat Cat Lounge! Had everyone up dancing. A great quiet resort to come back to relax after a busy day at the theme parks. Highly recommend for couples or adult travellers.
Be sure to take advantage of the boat rides to Downtown Disney, a great bonus!
