Still my favourite Disney World Resort.
I love French Quarter. The resort is lovely and compact which makes walking around a breeze, there really are no bad rooms here but I requested building 4 which I got and it was less than 2 minutes from our room to the lobby/bus stops and around 60 seconds from the car at all times. Love the Freestyle Machines in Sassagoula Floatworks and the hot chocolate is also excellent. My partner loves the Beignets in Scat Cats. Staff were all lovely and the bus service when we took it was excellent. Enjoyed the boat to Disney springs a couple of times as well. Little in the way of downsides here other than I really wish Disney would bring back daily housekeeping.
What a joke
First time we’ve stayed on Disney property in years because we live fairly close. Came here for our daughter’s birthday at her request. Stayed here because she remembered this resort from when she was younger and loved it. We are staying 2 nights. Turns out they only offer housekeeping service every other day. Which, when you’re staying 2 nights means NO HOUSEKEEPING. What a joke for $400/night! You know who cleans the rooms every day? Hilton and Marriott. Know how much they charge per night? Not $400.
Great Small Resort
After researching and finally narrowing down our Disney hotel stay to Port Orleans French Quarter we were so excited. When we got to hotel you definitely felt the jazzy New Orleans vibe. The room was clean and we loved the double sink! Bus transportation was quick and easy to and from every park! The pool was a nice place to relax after a crazy day at the parks! My only complaint to this stay is the boat transportation....when we booked we knew the resort offered it. But forward a year later we forgot about it until the last night of our stay when we finally saw the boat dock and realized we could have taken that to Disney Springs. It's not advertised/mentioned well anywhere at the resort that you that option and where it takes you. We were disappointed about not ever taking the boat but that was mild. Would definitely stay here again!!
Good resort for a family stay, definitely recommend it
We enjoyed our stay here. Spent time prior to booking researching various different Disney hotels and we landed on this one for a few reasons…the relatively small resort size and the room size vs the more budget hotels being the main ones. Those were definitely two pros, the room was a good size for a family of 4 (2 adults, 11 year old and 8 year old) and the smaller resort size meant no long walks to transport. We rarely waited a long time for transport and I think only once was a bus full, the smaller resort definitely helps with that. The pool was fun and the kids especially enjoyed it. Food options were ok, the pizza was nice and possibly the best value we saw across the entirety of Disney. I’d definitely recommend staying here, there’s no major cons except maybe things starting to look a bit tired and it’s not full on Disney themed (although I actually liked that).
Amazing Disney Hotel
We spent a long time looking for the best Disney hotel for the budget and to suit all of the family. We cannot recommend this place high enough. It is quiet, there is little noise and it is a cooling, soothing place after the parks. The bus routes and buses are fantastic and mean that you are completely connected to all of the areas, with the added value of the boat rides to Disney Springs. The room itself is large and has two doubles within it and a double sink bathroom. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food was variable, some nights were better than others and a la the rest of Disney on the pricier side. Beignets are amazing but massive and filling. Caution one beignet is more than enough for most... We have never seen a pool with 5 lifeguards on duty but had water slides, water play park and jacuzzi. Forget the razzmatazz of some the louder and brasher hotels, this has become our must stay place.
