Hotel overview

Two distinct areas combine to give Disney’s Port Orleans Resort a special Cajun flair. Return to the elegant and charming days of riverboats and Mark Twain. Courtly pillars, grand staircases and splendid gardens blend with the Mississippi-style waterways and gracious Southern hospitality. Or, relax in Big Easy atmosphere as intricate railings, cobblestone streets and courtyards of flowers capture the spirit and romance of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Dine on Creole delicacies, plunge in Doubloon Lagoon and relish the Mardi Gras festive fun. It’s a great way to add a little spice to your vacation.

    Great Atmosphere

    This was one of the most relaxing hotels we have ever stayed at. The atmosphere, music, and smaller size all made it enjoyable. I wasn't sure about staying here, but it might be our new favorite. We have stayed at Coronado Springs, Port Orleans Riverside, and All Star Sports before as well. The food court had pretty good options and wasn't too crowded. The beignets were amazing. The grounds were beautiful, and we didn't have to wait long for a bus at any time. We were able to check in early with no issues, and we used bell services to hold our luggage the last day as our flight was later at night. We rode the boat to Disney Springs and picked up our luggage when we were done. We really enjoyed our stay here!

    Good stay but gimme some java

    I sure hope Disney reads their reviews. There are a couple of things Disney could do to make the experience better : 1) put more benches along the river and 2) get some decent coffee. Parents want a nice up of coffee and a quiet moment in the morning. The Joffreys coffee is swill - paying 3 bucks for TERRIBLE coffee just gets the day off to a bad start. Fix this.

    Relaxing, Peaceful, Magical!

    We loved our stay at Port Orleans French Quarter! It's almost surprising to get such a lovely resort in the Disney Bubble for this price. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are clean and the beignets are a must! Honestly, our favourite part of staying at POFQ was the riverboat to and from Disney Springs. You just can't beat arriving from the airport, busing to your resort and taking a relaxing boat ride down to dinner at springs. What a way to start a trip! Plus, as Disneylanders as well, we really miss New Orleans Square at MK so this gives us a little slice of that experience! We would definitely return :)

    Perfect Disney Resort For All Ages

    The Walt Disney World Port Orleans French Quarter Resorts is the perfect place to call home while visiting Walt Disney World (WDW). My stay took place February 2016. During this stay my roommate and I had room with two queen beds that overlooked the Sasagoula River. From the moment we stepped of the magical express we knew we were going to enjoy this resort. The wrought iron portico with jazz trumpets playing in the speakers overhead mao the French Quarter

    Secluded and quiet moderate-priced resort with a great pool.

    We stayed here in January 2023 for a family trip to Disney and enjoyed our stay immensely, save for a couple of minor issues I'll get to below. The pros: comfortable, recently-refreshed rooms, which seem a bit larger than other moderate resorts. Walls are thick and hotel layout means you aren't getting a bunch of people walking outside your room door constantly compared to some other Disney resorts. Serene setting, too (lots of trees and foliage to add to the feeling of seclusion). Great access to Disney Springs via riverboat and the Disney Transportation buses are frequent from the front of the hotel. You don't need a car here unless you want one to get from park to park. The pool is whimsical and fun and the pool bar has a large patio where adults can sit at shaded tables nearby. The laundry facility is also located next to the pool/pool bar, and it has dozens of machines in case you want to pack light (or if the airline loses your luggage) and you need to clean some clothes. Beignets in the morning are amazing though skip the "chicory coffee" as it's nothing like the New Orleans style. The only "cons" I have are that this resort is still a little bit overpriced for a resort that's not on the monorail/skyliner. Finally, the one more serious criticism I have was our experience at Scat Cat's Bar in the lobby. The live music ends very early, which is fine. What was not fine was that despite only a handful of people in the establishment, there were dirty dishes stacked on empty tables, a very unsanitary looking bar-top, and three employees busy socializing before finally making a drink that tasted completely different from the same cocktail at the pool bar, and not in a good way. We quickly left shortly thereafter. If you want a cocktail at the hotel, opt for the much better and much cleaner poolside bar. Also, be warned, on the weekend of the Disney Marathons you will be awakened at 4 a.m. by the starting fireworks and PA sound system in the Epcot parking lot just across the street.
