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
The 300-seat Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory with a variety of

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
