The allure of New Orleans along a rippling river. Two themed pool areas evoke a folksy old-fashioned setting and a mythical land of sea serpents and friendly "critters." The only thing warmer than the Florida sunshine is the hospitality at this Resort. Most rooms comfortably accommodate up to four people. Welcome to Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter Resort.
The fun and frolic of the New Orleans Mardi Gras at the turn of the century, combined with the romance and charm of the French Quarter is what you'll find at Disney's Port Orleans Resort. You check in at the Port Orleans Mint that is designed to resemble a commercial bank of the 1800's and the Cast Members welcome you at 'bank teller' like windows. Outside the check in area, the Courtyard is flanked by the food court, gift shop and pool and is decorated with Mardi Gras icons, a large jester and musical instrument playing 'gators. The quaint little 'streets', reminiscent of those found in the historic Jackson Square Warehouse area of the French Quarter, branch off from the Courtyard. These cobblestone streets are lined with gas lamp-posts, mini wrought iron fences, hitching posts and iron benches.
Beautiful landscaping accentuated by majestic oaks, pear trees and fragrant magnolias greet guests as they make their way to the seven 3-story buildings that house the accommodations. Accented by more lacy wrought iron railings, each peach, cream or blue building has 144 guest rooms. Cascades of bougainvillea, glistening fountains and strolls along the Sassagoula River pathways add to the charm and romance of this quiet little resort. Transportation to the Downtown Disney Marketplace is offered in flat-bottomed boats that leave the dock approximately every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and after 4, every 15 minutes until 11:30 p.m.
