Port Orleans French Quarter Resort

Stately southern mansions, rustic bayou dwellings and ornate row-house buildings are recalled at Disney's Port Orleans Resort, a 3,056-room resort that features two "regions" -- the French Quarter and Riverside.

Southern architecture creates the setting for romance amid trees and flowers. The resort offers a step back in time into the heart and soul of the Southern region of our country.

The two themed regions -- totaling 3,056 rooms -- are connected by a winding road and picturesque waterways to capture the mystery and romance of a trip up the Mississippi River from New Orleans to Natchez. But in the Walt Disney World geography, resort guests can travel by flat-bottomed boats even farther "down river," to the shops and showplaces of Downtown Disney -- including the Marketplace, West Side and Pleasure Island.

Disney's 1,008-room Port Orleans-French Quarter is a village of seven three-story residence buildings plus shops, dining and recreation areas situated riverside.

The 300-seat Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory with a variety of food-court vendors offers everything from beignets and hand-dipped ice cream to spit-roasted chicken with jambalaya.

The recreation area is highlighted by a colorful sea serpent statue slide that emerges from the pool -- Doubloon Lagoon -- in a blaze of purple and turquoise. Frolicking around the pool are comical Mardi Gras characters. Bicycles and boats are available for rental at the Port Orleans Landing.

Scat Cat's Club features a light menu of hors d'oeuvres and entertainment. Mardi Grogs poolside bar serves a variety of specialty drinks, plus light snacks.

Across Port Orleans Square in the resort's French Quarter region is Jackson Square Gifts & Desires featuring a wide variety of merchandise and sundries.

Most guest rooms feature two double beds and accommodate four guests. There are a limited number of rooms with king-size beds. Handicapped-equipped rooms and non-smoking rooms are available.
