We love French Quarter! This small and quaint resort is the perfect place to stay! The pool is really nice, (we love the dragon water slide!) We thought that the lobby and quick service breakfast/lunch restaurant was one of the best ones we’ve seen in Disney! This resort is known for it’s beignets, too! We got the Mickey ones for almost every breakfast we had during our stay! French Quarter quickly became one of our must-do Disney resorts this trip, and this is where you should stay on your next vacation!

Pros:

Pool, size, BEIGNETS

Cons:

You have to take a bus everywhere!

We spent 5 nights of a 2 week honeymoon here after starting at Pop Century. We absolutely loved it. The size is perfect, the theme and grounds were beautiful. We will definitely stay here again. The staff was also exceptional, even for Disney.

Pros:

Size, Mickey beignets, boat to Disney springs.

Cons:

Could use a proper restaurant. Buses sometimes go through the riverside loops which take forever.

POFQ is my favorite resort due to it is smaller. I requested a first floor room in building 3 due to mobility issues(both my daughter and I have medical issues) They gave us building 1 on 2nd floor- a bit of a hike. Room was clean and ready early. magic bands didn't work initially but was able to use MDE to unlock door. The usb ports on night stand did not work. We were there for 5 nights and they only came in twice to empty trash and leave fresh towels. This was not made clear at check in. If they are going to do that they should reduce the rate. Also they need to increase the size of the trash cans if they don't want trash on the floor. Buses were fine, food was good. Will stay there again but they need to increase housekeeping.

Pros:

size, theming- Christmas decorations are really pretty

Cons:

housekeeping

Yes, yes, yes! This resort is my favorite. I’ve stayed at Caribbean Beach and Riverside as well. French quarter is amazing. It is so serene. The size is perfect. The boat to Disney Springs is the icing on the cake. I will gladly wait as long as I need to in order to stay here.

Pros:

Everything

Cons:

None

My Spouse and I honeymooned at Port Orleans French Quarter in September of 2019. We couldn't have picked a better place for us at the time! We absolutely loved the feel and vibe of the resort. It was super quiet, the room was immaculate, and in the evening you could smell the honeysuckle and other flowers on the boats to Disney Springs. THE ONLY problem we had was that the busses took forever (which we knew well in advance this would be the case and planned accordingly). I think this resort is PERFECT for adults only trips as there were very few small kids while we were there.

Pros:

Quiet, few small kids, smells and looks gorgeous. MICKEY BEINGETS and BOOZY BEINGETS! Jazz music!

Cons:

pretty far from parks, bus ride takes a long time, sometimes have to wait for an empty bus to or from park.

Been to this resort many times. The size is perfect. Quiet, relaxing and easy to navigate. The boat to Disney Springs is a huge plus.Like hanging out at the pool and the pool bar. Enjoy Scat Cats.

Pros:

Size. Atmosphere. Boat Access.

Cons:

Sometimes the food court is a biy iffy with their selections.

Let me tell you about my favorite resort. There is nothing better than coming back to your resort after a long, busy (tiring) day in WDW and enjoying the peacefulness of your resort. Sure, the deluxe resorts have some fancy bells and whistles but they are crowded and loud! Port Orleans French Quarter has this amazing, chill vibe that just makes you feel at home. It's the smallest WDW resort which makes it less busy and you won't be walking miles to your room. The theming is so immersive, it really felt like we were in a jazzy, hip little town with friendly neighbors. The quick service location does not disappoint and not to mention beignets for breakfast every day?! Yes, please! The resort also offers many amenities and activities. We love the access to the river boat that we took to Disney Springs. It was a relaxing and scenic ride.

Pros:

Small, quiet, immersive theming, excellent food choices, easily accessible amenities

Cons:

... none!

Absolutely loved this resort when we stayed in 2019. The theming is very good but not too in your face. The size of the resort was a nice size so never too far away from anything. The boats to Disney Springs was very relaxing and a nice change to the buses. We all enjoyed the food, with plenty of selection, and only a 10 minute stroll to Riverside too. My only complaint was you could hear the toilet in the room above being flushed, but not the actual people staying in the room

Pros:

Size, river boats, relaxing, great pool.

Cons:

Noisy toilets 🙂
