Our first stay on property at Disney World was in 2008 at Port Orleans French Quarter.
We had a great time staying at this property. All the buildings were authentically designed to look & feel like you were in New Orleans.
The address of the resort is :
2201 Orleans Drive Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-1000 Phone: 407-934-5000
We stayed in the North Quarter in Building 5. It was just around the corner from the main pool & a short walk from the reception area.
Our Room was ideal with 2 double beds.
Included with the room is a small fridge, hair dryer, Iron & ironing board. A small coffee percolator with cups & saucers & a few glasses.
All rooms have air conditioning a TV & ours had a small table & 2 chairs.
Each day hotel services clean the rooms, change the towels & if you have used the coffee will leave re-fills.
We found the beds comfortable & after long day's in the parks they were well received at night.
The whole place had a great feel about it. And the one thing we all loved when we were there was the short boat ride to the old Downtown Disney area.
Each evening if we back early enough from the parks we would either use the pool ( it was open up to midnight) or jump on the boat for a stroll around Downtown Disney.
Most mornings we would head off to the Sassagoula floatworks for Breakfast.
It is the only restaurant on this resort & is a quick service location. The variety of food is pretty good, so you should find something for everyone.
The food court contains a couple of food stations offering American-Creole cuisine from burgers and pizza to sandwiches, wraps, and a variety of hot dishes including a classic orleans jumbalaya, chicken and ribs
There is a small bar by the pool area for light snacks & drinks. And in the evening there is a bar just of the main reception area called Scat's cat's club.
Pool - A sea serpent water slide and a alligator band with water spouting from them are both found at the Doubloon Lagoon, at Port Orleans French Quarter. A kiddie pool and spa can be found near by as well. Complimentary pool towels are available at the main pool.
We had a great time at this resort & thoroughly enjoyed the facilities. We are planning to stay at the Riverside resort in 2017.
