planDisney Resort Pocket Guide: Port Orleans – French Quarter


Time to jazz up your Walt Disney World vacation! planDisney has released another issue of the “pocket guides” series on Disney Parks Blog, familiarizing guests with Disney’s Port Orleans Resort: French Quarter.

Escape to the historic French Quarter in New Orleans, as you walk down cobblestone streets listening to the energy of some good old fashioned New Orleans Jazz. Or, take a quiet moment to get some fresh air on the wrought-iron balcony.

Enjoy a walk along the Sassagoula River on the fitness trail connecting French Quarter to its sister resort – Port Orleans Resort: Riverside.

Want to do some shopping or catch a showing of the new Cirque du Soleil: Drawn to Life? Hop in a water taxi and cruise on over to Disney Springs.

Hungry? French Quarter offers three excellent food and beverage options, including the Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory (food court), Scat Cat’s Club Lounge and Café (home of their famous Mickey beignets), and Mardi Grogs. Plus, you can simply walk over to Port Orleans: Riverside for even more options.

Even if you aren’t planning to stay at Port Orleans: French Quarter, the resort is still worth the trip to check it out (and maybe put it on the list for your next Disney trip).

planDisney Pocket Guides are especially helpful to guests who are considering staying at a resort they’ve never before experienced. The Pocket Guides take the form of 5-14 page PDF slides, which are easily printable and savable to smart devices. They offer efficient snapshots of the resort basics, including:

  • Transportation options
  • Room sizes
  • Food and beverage options and locations
  • Pools and recreation activities
  • Shopping
  • Tips from the planDisney panel
