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.

    Birthday At The French Quarter

    March 2024 Birthday getaway was wonderful and we are returning guests. This time we had a room facing the Sassagoula River. We love the New Orleans style atmosphere of The French Quarter. All of the staff were amazing from the welcome staff, food service, room staff and everyone who made my birthday special. We are Florida Residents and did enjoy the 30% room discount. I even received flowers delivered to the room by Disney Magic. Thanks to everyone at The French Quarter for making my birthday magical at The Happiest Place on Earth.

    Perfect Disney Experience

    We absolutely loved this hotel and it makes it very hard to stay in another onsite when we have experienced this hotel. Disney doesn’t have to feel huge and packed with people. The hotel was easy to navigate around and you never felt you were too far from any amenities. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food in the food court is fine. Normal fair. We bought resort mugs which were so handy for our 10 night stay, certainly worth the money. We loved the pool and the water slide was a big hit for our kids. We used the laundry facilities, very handy to have and also easy to drop your clothes off and have the site on your phone which tells you when to come back for them. The resort itself is clean and at night with lights on and jazz playing it is beautiful to walk around. Rooms are larger than I expected and it’s very helpful to have space under the bed for suitcases. It frees up floor space in the room. Beds are comfy and Disney does the little touches really well. Housekeeping were super. All round perfect hotel and we can not wait to visit again.

    Amazing 2 weeks in the Magic

    Amazing stay in the magic to celebrate our little mouseketeers first birthday. We stayed in building 5 which was super close to reception/restaraunt and bus stop. From the moment we arrived until we left we had some amazing interactions with the wonderful cast members, all were so friendly and kind. The pool onsite was closed for refurbishment during our 2 week stay however we were aware of this and made use of riverside instead. Im sure itll be amazing once the refurb is complete. The grounds around the hotel were immaculately kept with nothing ever out of place. We stayed in a garden view room which was perfect although a little lacking in storage which meant we utilised the 2nd double bed for suitcases during our stay. We had an amazing time and are already looking at returning sometime in the near future to this resort. Buses can get a little busy near park opening times however like most things in Disney are well organised and usually another bus isnt far away if you cant get on the first one.

    Great relaxing resort and a real gem with its theming. Bus service is great and never waited more than 5 minutes.

    Very nice resort. No crowds and very quiet and relaxing. I think it’s one of the best places to stay at in Disney. Much cheaper in comparison to the luxury hotels on site and in my opinion a better experience due to the layout of the resort. Our room was right on the river.

    Don't recommend

    Terrible room design. Anyone using the toilet or washing their hands floods the bed area with light (curtains don't help much). Saving the cost of installing a door is shortsighted especially considering the cost of these rooms. Pools are all closed, renovation.
