Intricate railings, cobblestone streets and courtyards of flowers capture the spirit and romance of New Orleans' French Quarter. Dine on Creole delicacies, plunge into Doubloon Lagoon with its fantastic water slide or relish the Mardi Gras atmosphere. Dazzling detail, bayou excitement and "all that jazz" can be had for a "song." Resort features 1,008 guest rooms, pool with slide, kiddie pool, arcade and playground. Bicycle rentals, family fishing hole and a marina with watercraft rentals available at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Rooms are available for guests with disabilities.

Love this place

Having stayed at many Disney resorts, I keep returning to French Quarter. The location is central and very convenient to the parks. My family loves the staff and size of the resort. It is small and cozy compared to other Disney properties. It provides a great value compared to other on site hotels. Bus service was great during this stay and our room was super clean - both of these were better than previous stays. We always enjoy the pool, hot tub, and playground areas, as well as the boat to Downtown Disney. The only thing I would say is that the on site food options are average. I would advise sticking to the basics and not trying anything too exotic at the food court. My overall favorite resort on Disney property!

Try riding the boat to Downtown Disney and eating at the Earl of Sandwich. Delicious and very inexpensive for Disney food.

Good value for the money

It's Disney what's not to like. The grounds and amenities were outstanding. The pool was beautifully themed and large. The quick service restaurant gave you what you need. The room was adequate. The bed was comfortable but the decor was not to my liking. Not a big fan of purple and gold though I do understand why. It's supposed to be New Orleans. Anyhow when you are in Disney who spends time in the room so the room did it's job by providing a comfortable place to sleep. Overall I recommend staying here if you are on a bit of a budget.

February school vacation

Staff was classic Disney- very polite, cheerful and accommodating. Disappointed that the pool was closed for refurbishment (big draw to this resort) during school break. Had problems with Magic Bands on our checkout day- (locked out of our room once we went to breakfast)- wound up missing our transportation to airport as a result. Staff took care of our family and paid for our taxi. Overall nice layout, quiet hotel.

Great Disney hotel at a great value

We stayed here the week of February 15th, 2014 (including President's Day weekend). We had a great experience at this resort. All of the staff members were super friendly and super helpful. The pool was closed for refurbishing, but that sort of thing is expected during the winter months (Splash Mountain was down that week as well). However, the walk to Riverside's pool was less than ten minutes, so again, the pool at French Quarter wasn't an issue. The room and grounds of the hotel were very clean, and the room was quite comfortable. The resort is convenient to downtown Disney as well as Typhoon Lagoon, and the main parks are easily accessible via Disney's bus service. Routes are hit or miss, with some going directly to and from the resort (Magic Kingdom) and others making multiple stops at Riverside. Still, it was a great value, and I would definitely recommend this resort over Caribbean Beach Resort, which is our typical go-to resort at Disney.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If you're going to go to downtown Disney, I would recommend using the boat. Taking the bus sometimes involves up to six stops (Typhoon Lagoon and all four Riverside stops before French Quarter), making the boat a much better option.

Disney Perfect!

Our experience was nothing less than wonderful, which is exactly what we've come to expect from Disney. The only disappointment was that the pool area was closed to be refurbished. I would have liked to have been made aware of that in advance.

Nice place, full disney experience

I was excited to go to Disney for the first time and I was not let down. Room was clean and service was excellent. Most of the staff was beyond friendly and helpful as you would expect at a Disney owned resort. Only exception to this was one lady running the front desk late night who could not answer my question, but also didn't offer to help me find someone who could. There were lots of amenities avaliable although many were not complimentary such as breakfast. If you are looking for the full Disney experience without breaking the bank this is the place to go, since it comes with the magic bands, transportation to the parks and hotels, and magic hours that come with staying at a Disney owned resort.
