We had a great time again at French Quarter. This is my favorite moderate hotel. The food court is nice and was not too busy ( Riverside can get very busy). The pool is nice but smaller than other resorts. We did not wait more than 15-20 minutes for a bus to the parks and we took the boat to downtown Disney (Disney Springs).

We stayed here for our Disneymoon back in 2010. loved the location and the boat ride to Downtown Disney (now Disney Springs). Stay close to the lobby for a view of the courtyard and access to the food court! We will always stay here as it was not crowded and the heated pool is a bonus.

This hotel like most at Disney is very large. We stayed in building 3 which was close to lobby and buses. Lovely grounds for walking. Rooms average size. Food ok but not many choices. Beds were comfortable and clean. Much smaller than port Orleans riverside. Good pool area. Outside in the evening is very "buggy" Overall a good choice for moderate at Disney.

We stayed @ the French Quarter for a weekend visit. I used the online early check in and was advised via text message by 10am our room was ready. Went straight to room bypassing the front desk.

from the minute we arrived, everyone was so helpful. I had done a lot of pre-planning as well, but the service is second to none. The room had a view of the river, and was quiet & very comfortable. There were large curtains in the sink/bathroom area that we could close & made a great changing room. Especially helpful when traveling with our 12year old grand daughter.

I've stayed at POFQ twice now, for PHM weekend both in 2014 and 2015, and absolutely adore the hotel! It's very quaint, and has a real port orleans feel to it from the shuttered style of the buildings, the swirling railings, the music piped through everywhere, and the style of the employees working there. Because it's a smaller Disney resort it only has one bus stop for the parks - seriously does save on time and sanity in comparison to the value resorts, especially on race weekends. It also h...

We have just returned from holiday and stayed here for the 2 time. A fantastic place to stay. We were in building 7 the furthest away from the check in area and food court! Did not bother us as it was still only a few minutes walk. The benefits were we were close to Port Orleans Riverside which had a better selection of foods available. If I had one complaint it would be the lack of choice in the French Quarter food court. We had great weather and made full use of the dining plan eating in the... Read more

Great hotel, a lot less spread out than other Disney hotels which was great with the kids. Movies and camp fires at night was a special touch we where not expecting, and made the trip even better. The boat to down town was great as the room wasn't ready when we arrive so we dropped our bags at the bell service and headed down down on the boat for a bit of shopping and a bite to eat. The boats are a lot more relaxed than the bus service. No sit down service at this hotel, didn't bother us but tho... Read more

My husband, daughter and I just returned from our first trip to Port Orleans French Quarter. After much research, I chose it because I liked the theme, and the smaller size. The resort is very compact; our room in Building 2 was adjacent to the pool, but I paid a little extra for a garden view room which looked over a pretty landscaped area with a fountain. It was also very quiet, which was great because the pool was open until 11 but we were usually asleep before that. The pool was great, a goo... Read more

My stay at POFQ was nice, but not outstanding. The grounds are especially pretty at night when the lamps are lit and you feel as though you have been transported out of Florida. I am glad to hear the food court is being refurbished. I did not spend a ton of time at the resort itself, however it was nice that all features close were together (i.e. transportation to parks, food court, pool). This would depend on what building you stayed in. Ask to stay near the food court and you will be clos... Read more

I really enjoyed our stay at Port Orleans French Quarter. The property is very tranquil which is nice when Disney parks are crowded. The exterior of the buildings and grounds are beautiful with gardens that all well kept in between buildings. Breakfast at food court was very good. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We have a 10 and 14 year old and it was perfect for our family. I truly enjoyed our stay.

Disney's Port Orleans-French Quarter was a very nice resort. My kids loved the poolside games and the slide! The Food at the Sassagoula-Floatworks was pretty good. Don't leave without trying the Beignets! They were great! When compared to other, newer resorts, this resort is not too bad. The crowd is a little older but some people prefer that. Transportation is provided although the wait was a little longer than at other resorts. We give it a 7 out of 10.

This resort is in the middle price range but you get more for your money here then other moderate resorts. It's the smallest resort Disney has. That means your not far from anything here - food, pool, bus pick up. After a long day of walking at the parks that adds up. It is by far our favorite after staying here over the years.

This is by far one of my favorite Disney hotels. We usually go there 2 or 3 times a year and if my husband and I are the only ones going we always end up here. It is one of the smaller hotels but it is very cool. I could stay here every time however some groups we go with and more into the cheaper hotels. Which are still nice but I would rather spend the money and enjoy a little quite time.

I lived in New Orleans for a year, and Port Orleans French Quarter captures some of the best architecture and food of the Crescent City.

Staying at Port Orleans currently. The hotel is wonderful with clean rooms and immaculate grounds. Housekeeping and grounds staff do an excellent job!! Bus transport is accessible and so timely even with so many people visiting the parks. One great amenity is the boat to Disney Springs with a relaxing ride. Staff are very nice and especially willing to help. Thank you for a great job and will recommend this resort to all my northern friends and family!!

Port Orleans French Quarters was a beautiful hotel. Clean and the staff was friendly. The pool here was awesome and the new splash area for little ones was a treat for my 2 year old. I loved just walking around this hotel it felt authentic to what New Orleans French Quarters would feel like. The food court has Beignets which is a French pastry which is delicious, a must try if you go here. Plus Arneil the man at the door of the lobby made you feel like a life long friend.

I stayed at French Quarter for two weeks on the last vacations in July and I can honestly say that I wish we had stayed a little longer. It was our first time in WDW so we didn't plan to stay at the hotel for very long and I regret that. At the moment we got there I thought: "How am I ever gonna leave this place?".

The main reason for booking a room here was the fact that the value resorts seemed way too big and overwhelming. I was looking for something a bit smaller and I ended up at POFQ. It was well worth the extra money to me. I really loved the resort and strolling through with a nice trail that will less you to its sisterresort at the Riverside. This is also a good runningtrail if you want to get some excercise. That one seemed much bigger, but equally beautiful. The resort was well kept everywhere. ... Read more

In the Disney age of mega-resorts, Port Orleans - French Quarter is a nice respite from all the other hustle and bustle of WDW. Even though the resort has about 1,000 rooms, because of the layout, it is very peaceful. If you are looking for a good building selection, I would strongly recommend Building 4. This building is located adjacent to the main building, and most importantly, just a short walk to the Disney transportation stop. In addition, it is not far from the main pool. The main l...

As season passholders to Disney World (WDW), we like to stay at the value resorts. On this trip to celebrate our 15th Anniversary we upgraded to a Moderate resort. It was worth it. The French Quarter is lovely and you feel like you are in New Orleans. The staff pays attention to details and the property is well maintained.

We were greeted by extremely friendly cast members that were more than willing to help accommodate us! Nicely decorated with plenty to gawk at. One of the first things we did after checking in and visiting ... Read more

We loved that this hotel was a short boat ride to Disney Springs. Even though the food court was closed for renovations, we were able to get quick meals for lunch and breakfast at the hotel. We also took the trip to Disney Springs several times because there were so many restaurants to choose from. It was also fun just to ride the boat and look around at the shops. We took the shuttle to Epcot and Magic Kingdom and only waited a few minutes each time. We also took the boat to Riverside and walke... Read more

This resort is quite a bit smaller than the upper scaled places but then again it is a lot quieter and cheaper too. The rooms were good sized and appreciated the coffee maker and refrigerator in the room. We had ham and cheese omelettes and I wouldn't recommend them. We didn't have time to use the pool so can't comment. The transportation buses arrived quite often. We would stay here again.

When deciding on a Disney World hotel to stay for one night after a Disney Cruise, I couldn't resist staying at Port Orleans French Quarter. We usually stay at Port Orleans Riverside, but we stayed there for one night before the cruise, so I wanted to get some French Quarter in, too. Upon arrival immediately following our cruise, several cast members were waiting as the bus pulled up. They all welcomed us with warm greetings and smiles.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Port Orleans French Quarter. Our favorite thing is the boat shuttles to Disney Springs. Hotel grounds feel very nice and peaceful which is a welcome respite after a day at the parks. We purchased the meal plan for this trip.

Such gorgeous gardens, matured plantings, vibrant flowers and gaily colored buildings all contribute to the flavor of New Orleans here at Walt Disney World. We stayed at the French Quarter and I was happy with the rooms soundproofing, but the beds were not that comfy. The maid service was efficient, and rooms were very clean. The pool was great- big and full of things for the kids to do, with activities and splash pools. A handy cocktail bar was a nice touch, and tasty light food was available, ... Read more

We liked the New Orleans residential feel of the resort. There's a great pool with water park the children will love along with a credit card operated laundry nearby. The Pool bar is an excellent place to meet and watch people or catch a game on the TV. On several nights each week there's an outdoor movie on the lawn or a campfire with marshmallow roasting (No charge). The bar inside near the lobby is rather small but friendly during the renovation of the food court. There's a temporary service... Read more

This is now our fourth stay at Port Orleans French Quarter, and I can honestly say that I have come to really like it above all other Disney properties we have stayed at, although the Swan is a very close second. But, given that the French Quarter is in a lower cost category than the Swan, it puts it over the top. The French Quarter is classified as a Moderate Disney property, and the costs are generally reasonable. The reasons I have come to rate is so far above other Disney properties: 1. I... Read more

I have stayed on Disney property several times in the past few years and I have to say in general my experience this time was not up to snuff. The rooms at Disney hotels in general are not great so I thought instead of staying at a "luxury" property I would save a few dollars and stay in a moderate resort. After this experience I may consider staying at the Swan or Dolphin rather than a Disney run property. Reservations System: The Disney reservation system is old and antiquidated they really c...

Our room was small but clean and comfortable. The pool is best for small children. My teens were bored with it. Since they are remodeling restaurants there was nothing on site but your basic amusement park food (nuggets, burgers, pizza, salads) which got old after eating that food in the parks all day.

By no means is Port Orleans French Quarter a high-end resort. However, if you are looking for great proximity to the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood studios with decent, clean rooms and a full suite of amenities from a camp fire to roast marshmallows to a great pool and even a romantic horse and buggy ride service then you have found it. It also features boat service to Disney springs, a.k.a. Disney downtown. It is a bit of a. long ride to animal kingdom but it cannot be close to everything.... Read more

We stayed here for one night before our Disney cruise and it was lovely - rooms have been refreshed recently so are in great condition.

This is one of Disney's "moderate" resorts, which means it falls in the middle of the price range for Disney prices. To us, it's expensive. That said, it was a lot of what you'd expect from Disney. Spotless. Not a speck of dirt anywhere and great, friendly, service. It's Disney's smallest resort and because of that, it seemed there were less kids around than what you might expect at some of the other resorts. It's also dubbed one of their most romantic resorts and I think that's accurate.The a... Read more

This hotel is probably the best if you're only adults as the better pool and kid-friendly stuff is at the Riverside. We're very happy we chose this place because it felt almost like an adult's only kind of place. Loved the entertainment on the Tuesday night! The resort should def have that kind of thing every single night (not Bob though - very creepy) Easy bus or water taxi ride away from Disney Springs and all parks.

This resort was perfect for our family of four (2 adults and 2 boys under 10) . It was a 1 minute walk to everything (transportation, food court, pool, boat, ...). We loved it!! After a long day in the park it was nice to have 200 (?) steps from the bus to our room (and vice Versa in the morning!) I actually decided to stay here after reading the many reviews from this site stating how convenient it was because it was such a small resort....I'm so glad I listened!!!
