We loved the pool view room in building 5, which seemed just a bit small. The outdoor movie was on the other side of our building. Pizza and hamburgers were NOT good. We were awakened at 6:30 June 2, 14 by a man having a psychotic episode in the pool and security was taking a hands-off approach, apparently just watching the man till popo got there. I think he should have been subdued quickly for several reasons, including his own safety. The man's episode aside, which could happen anywhere, this is nice place to stay. My son loved the Sea Serpent water slide. It also has a arcade and small playground and dad could watch it from the hot tub, around which it wouldn't hurt for the grounds keepers to do a little work with a leaf blower.

Room Tip: Pool view from 2nd or 3rd floors (if you want to see the pool) and as close as you can get to bus st...

We had a nice, peaceful stay at POFQ. We love the grounds. So beautiful and peaceful. We had a room on the third floor which we had requested. The view of the garden and fountain from our room was lovely. All of the cast members we encountered were friendly and helpful. We walked to Port Orleans Riverside and stopped to sit on the bench and enjoyed watching the riverboat on the Sassagoula River. We also enjoyed taking the boat to Downtown Disney in the evenings. The only downside to our room was that the bed wasn't up to par. It was not as comfortable as I thought it would be. Other than that, we had a great trip and a great stay at Port Orleans French Quarter.

The French quarter hotel offered the basic amenities that we needed for our first trip to Disney World. When we first opened the door into our room on the ground level facing the pool, we were a bit disappointed by the quality of the furnishings, as we expected a little better quality for a Disney property given their reputation. It was more like a nice motel room. It was clean and had the basics including the disney character hand soaps (which my 41/2year old loved). The beds (we got a double room) were comfy and the blackout shades helped to keep the sun out and let us sleep longer after marathon days at the parks. The restaurant was convenient and offered a decent selection. There was a nice playground for the little ones, a hot tub and fairly large swimming pool which we enjoyed. This resort also has boat access to Port. Orleans riverside and downtown Disney which was a nice scenic ride about 15mins long. The service was decent but we're more likely to stay at one of the hotels closer to a magic kingdom like the contemporary or Polynesian resorts on our next trip to Disney. We definitely recommend staying on the Disney property as it was nice not to have to drive but just hop on a bus to go to the various parks and the FastPass service only available to Disney hotel guests was really nice for pre-planning rides and schedules days in advance, especially for the more popular rides. It was a nice and memorable vacation.

Room Tip: If you are bothered by noise, get a room on a higher floor so you don't have to hear the familie...

Disney for us is one of the best places to have a celebration. We came here for our honeymoon when the only park open was Magic Kingdom. We had an amazing time. We had started our honeymoon in New Orleans so it just made sense to stay at Port Orleans. The attention to detail is unbelievable. The garden spaces are beautiful. Loved walking about the resort early in the morning. Loved going to the food court to get morning coffee and beignets then find a pretty spot to enjoy them. The pool area is huge and fun but all the small spaces make it seem less huge. I must say I was very impressed with the life guards at the pool. They were professional and took their job very serious. I would not for one minute worry about my children at this pool. Our room faced on to the waterway in the back of the resort and I loved looking out to it from the large window in our room. The room was immaculate. Came back each evening to a treat from the maid. A towel animal or note. Lots of drawer and closet space. Can not say enough about how wonderful this resort is. It will not disappoint you.

First trip to Disney World we stayed at the Disney Port Orleans resort. Although the decor it's not what I had expected from looking at the pictures it was quite adequate. The Mill turned out to be to be a good place to go get a snack or. Something for breakfast for the next morning to fill up our mugs. All of the staff in the resort, in the shops, and in the restaurant were very helpful.

Amazing first trip to Disney. in August 12. Hotel is lovely spotless and food is good. Especially the pork po boys and the ribs and chicken. Make sure you try the beignets too. The pool and hot tub stay open until 11pm too so you can soak the aches and pains away. Good transport links as you have buses and also the river boats to Downtown Disney.
