This resort opened in 1992 as "Dixie Landings". In 2001 Disney changed the name to Port Orleans French Quarter. The Port Orleans French Quarter combines the energy of Mardis Gras with the charm of New Orlean's iconic French Quarter into one of Disney's most intimate resorts. While this is the smallest of Disney's 'moderate' category resorts, Port Orelans French Quarter is also among the most popular. There are seven buildings housing the resort's 1008 rooms, situated along quaint "streets" with wrought iron fences, cascades of bougainvillea and fountains throughout. The resort is located along the banks of the Sassagoula River, offering boat transportation to Disney Springs.
If you have a day where you just want to hang out by the pool, rest assured there will be games and activities throughout the day to entertain the kids. Some of the poolside activities that take place at Port Orleans French Quarter are Name that Disney Tune, Goofy Bingo, Disney trivia, Name that WDW attraction, and more. At 4:00pm each day is the Doubloon Lagoon Mardi Gras Parade and after dark, a Cajun Campfire takes place along the Sassagoula River behind building 6. Fishing and horse drawn carriage rides are also available.
South Quarter Games arcade is one of the smaller arcades at Disney resorts, but it offers a good mix of games for all age groups.
A sea serpent water slide and a water spouting alligator band are both found at the main pool, the Doubloon Lagoon, at Port Orleans French Quarter. A kiddie pool and spa can be found close by as well. Complimentary pool towels are available at the main pool. Swim noodles and tubes can also be rented. There is also an Aquatic Play Area – perfect for kids 48 inches and under. This new play area is located next to the Doubloon Lagoon pool and features child-size water slides, water cannons, and fountains. To fit the theme of the resort, the equipment is all colored in Mardi Gras gold, purple, and green.
