Review for Disney's Port Orleans Resort -- French Quarter
What we loved:
decor, pool, quiet
What we didn't love:
The first time I ever stayed on property I chose this resort for its wonderful Sea Serpent Slide. Once we arrived we fell in love with the whole thing! Small "streets", wrought iron railings, gorgeous colors. This is our absolute favorite resort. Weve tried a few others but end up coming back to POFQ. Of course the beignet in the food court is something to crave too! My daughter says we shouldnt stay anywhere else.br/br/There are only 7 buildings, three stories each with elevators. Walking to the bus stop or food court is a short walk through beautifully manicured grounds. There is a childs playground and a hot tub for the adults. One evening we just spent walking around the grounds finding all the fountains. Oh, and the staff give you plastic mardi gras coins to throw in the main fountain everytime you enter the front doors which is nearly everytime we get off the bus!. The resort is located a small distance from EPCOT so bus rides to any park are not long at all and there is a boat ride down the Sassagoula River to get to Downtown Disney -- so peaceful. When you do take the bus, FQs stop is usually the first one - so the bus isnt crowded when you get on to go to a park and coming back from a park youre first off. br/br/I think POFQ is WDWs best kept secret among the Moderate Resorts.
