Pretty property. Hotel was just ok though...for the price would rather stay at a hotel with nicer accommodations even if just slightly off property (it was a fifteen minute drive then a monorail to the park anyways), or pay a bit more for a nicer resort.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Magical minus 1"
It was all very Magical except for 1=one incident. On Friday 11/21 when we tried to board the Riverboat to Riverside from The French Quarter we were told we were too late but we could see people still boarding. We followed directions and as the boat pulled away the operator shouted that there would be no more boats that day! We were stunned. Even the […] operator of the other Riverboat heading for Downtown Disney could not believe what just happened!!! We have been coming to Disney since October 15th, 1971 when my daughter turned 2. She is now 45 and we have celebrated many occasions at Disney, this was very surprising. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel rooms and food need attention"
Arrived to an unclean hotel room. I cleaned it a bit. Next morning politely asked the staff on duty to please vacuum and dust.Tip left. My room was much cleaner. I did notice the mirrors were never attended to during my stay. Tip left every morning. The hotel room was dingy with poor lighting and appeared old. Nothing updated. Very tiny bath.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasons to like Port Orleans French Quarter."
I like this hotel because of it's New Orleans city theme and it's small size for a Disney moderate hotel. It is easy to get around the hotel, doesn't have a crowded feel, and has direct transportation to Downtown Disney (which is under construction which makes getting there by car difficult) by boat. There is only one bus stop rather than the 4 or more […] at the other moderate resorts. Have stayed data all thee Disney moderate resorts and this has become my favorite.

The room was very clean and looked very nice. Housekeeping did a very good job every day. Bathroom was very small. You could barely get into it to close the door. Hopefully not all rooms had bathrooms that small. The shower head we had should be replaced. It did not work well. We've stayed at Riverside before and felt it was a bit better than French […] Quarter. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Port Orleans/ French Quarter, relaxing &convenient"
Pluses: Really clean, Transportation to parks timely and convenient., consigners helpful, check in was fast, the pool big and lots of lifeguard's, grounds beautiful, river travel great, noise level at a minimal, food affordable, staff friendly. Better than most hotels at making sure guests stay is great. Minuses: The hot tub was small, the lounge only […] had entertainment on week-end, no sit down/wait staff restaurant on property. The parks close early in the winter and so we wanted to go back to the resort and relax, but really nothing for adults to do, we took the riverboat to either Downtown Disney, or Port Orleans Riverside to relax at a sit down restaurant, not a big imposition, but would have been nice to at least stay on property after the hectic parks.

"Very nice for the price"
This is a very quiet resort. Smaller than most of the others so it's not as crowded as the value resorts. We'll stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was greeted warmly and quickly upon arrival. Room was ready. Love the Magic Band. Nice, comfortable room. Beautiful property. Love the boat ride to Downtown Disney.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place But Minor Glitches"
Overall, a really pleasant place to stay. I especially liked the walking path along the river and a conveniently-located decent food court that serves all three meals. Being Disney, the food was really expensive - for example, $2 for a Hershey's candy bar which can be purchased in my hometown grocery store at 3 for $2 - and other food items were also […] double or triple the price I pay back home. Also, the hotel had been overbooked so I didn't get the room I had reserved and had wanted and instead was plunked down in the farthest corner of the French Quarter resort. In addition, the pin number for my Magic Wrist Band thingy didn't "take" the first time it was entered. This resulted in my not being able to charge my first purchase to my account - I had to charge instead to my credit card and then go back to the hotel lobby and re-enter my pin number again. Minor inconveniences for sure, but annoying none the less. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all the parks. Quiet setting for Disney."
Appreciated a peaceful place after full days at the parks. Bus transportation worked well from this location. Great time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disney extended weekend."
Our family enjoyed a long weekend at this resort. Port Orleans offered fun activities for Halloween and poolside games and movie events daily. We used Disney transportation for our entire stay. Some wait times, but nothing terrible. The hotel had a small/medium cafe, good options for healthy eating. We took the riverboat to the Riverside Resort one […] night which offers a more variety of dinner options. Beds were good, rooms clean. Great time overall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved everything about this hotel!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved it, stayed for 7 nights, slept well"
We stayed there for 7 nights and loved it. Grounds were nice, pool was fun, sassagoula food court was easy and family ready. We took the boat to downtown disney twice, that was a nice touch. Those in our party who previously had stayed at a disney world value resort thought it was a really nice upgrade. We'd definitely stay there again. Unfortunately […] there are so many other WDW resorts and so few times to try them, we'll probably try something else if we get the opportunity. So, if you haven't been here, and if you had you'd know your opinion of it, we'd definitely recommend trying it out. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Port Orleans is the best!!"
We have made Port Orleans and Dixie Landings our Disney hotels of choice. They are convenient to Downtown Disney and Epcot. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The only problem we had this trip was the grounds crew decided to cut the lawn and roll heavy carts up and down outside our room at 6:30 a.m. That is why I took a few points off of overall. […] This is the only time in 28 visits to Disney World that this has ever happened. Maybe the grounds crew should start their days work at a more reasonable hour, 8:00 a.m. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, needs more choices for dining"
Overall we had a very pleasant experience staying there. As mentioned above, just wish there were more dining choices close by. Also, the food at the food court is way too salty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best in this price range"
2nd time we have stayed here. Love how compact the property is, comfortable and spacious accommodations. Located on the river, Downtown Disney is just a boat ride away. Short waits for bus service to the parks. Good food in the quick service restaurant with hot beignets made to order. The best resort in this price range, we will likely stay here again […] on our next Disney trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Unlike much of the Disney experience, the Port Orleans French Quarter Resort was appropriately priced. The room was comfortable, the room temperature was easy to manage and there was very little noise. Negatively. the tub did not have a grab bar, the regular cleaning staff person often came so late that I just had her empty the garbage and replace […] used towels. All in all, I feel I got what I paid for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Our Favorite Disney Hotel"
Everything went as expected. We got on the Magical Express at the airport and were delivered to the hotel without any delays. There were no problems at checkin, the staff was fast and courteous. Our Magic Bands, which were mailed prior to our leaving home, worked flawlessly. Things we like best about the French Quarter include the location, it is close […] to Epcot, the Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney. We enjoy taking the boat to Downtown Disney. And most of all the beignets, at the counter service restaurant, are a real New Orleans treat! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"not a "moderate" Disney resort"
We have frequented several "Disney resorts" while in Orlando and were not at all impressed with this hotel. Needs to be renovated, the staff was not friendly, food options were not on the "healthier" side and tasted bland and overcooked. Stayed 6 days at an alternate Disney (value) resort and it was much nicer. Pros: None. Cons: Dirty, Aged, Impersonal/Rude […] Staff, Poor Food Quality, Arcade was outdated and hotel lacked overall amenities. We would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nicely themed hotel on Disney property"
Easy check in, nice accommodations, love staying on Disney property :)Genuine Expedia guest review
hotel was great but Disney as a hole was not fun. no charactors walk ing the parks. you have to wait in long lines so myour kids get to see them and that wasted our day. unbelivable. they avertise like the chactors are walking around not true. Never even seen Mickey Mouse.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed at the Riverside first then French Quarter - both experiences were great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice but need better maids"
Very Nice property. Staff and hotel was great. Room was dirty where you could not see (under the bed, behind and under night stand and dresser. Such as food particals old klennex)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stayed for a conference"
Food was gross and ridiculously overpriced. Service was good. Rooms were decent. No big complaints besides the food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Even at a discount this room at Port Orleans wasn't cheap. The front desk clerk didn't explain the amenities-would have liked to know the river boat can take you to downtown Disney-and the wrist bands creeped me out when I realized they could track where we went. The room was small, the beds slumped, there was something peculiar stuck to the ceiling […] of the bath. I was disappointed. Didn't hold up to the Disney rep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed our stay!"
Staff was very helpful with any request. We loved being able to go to the different Disney parks without worrying about transportation. Boat ride to and from Disney Market was relaxing and fun. The pool and surrounding area was clean and open at convienient times.Genuine Expedia guest review
Port Orleans French Quarter has been our favorite resort out of all of the moderate resorts at Disney. The decor is well themed and everything is centrally located which makes getting to/from the park easy. I only wish that that the food options were healthier as we usually prefer the food at Riverside. The dinning hall needs some work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Extended weekend stay the family. Very nice, only complaint was that blinds opened to walkway and we were unable to keep them open after showering. Every thing else was great, good transportation and proximity to downtown disney.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Did not have something special in my grand daughte"
You told me you would have something special in my 2 grandaughter's room because it was their first time at Disney World!!! There was nothing!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly staff, room clean"
Staff was super friendly. Older room could be updated. Easy to get around. Boat to Downtown Disney was easy and convenient. Riverview room as s nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just what we expected."
It's not a "basic" room and it's not luxury, but nicely in the middle. The staff were quite friendly and competent. Our only small complaint is that the two sinks (two being a very good thing!) are open to the bedroom. That seems to be a Florida thing -- no door to close to muffle the sounds. Weird. And the restaurant is reminiscent of a low-end college […] cafeteria. Our young granddaughters (5 and 3) loved the pool! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location with access to ferry and bus"
Food court is great. Room was clean and maintained nicely. Ferry to downtown disney accessible as well as bus transportation to all parks and airport which are complimentary. The only complaint is the hotel check in staff not telling us about the express check out with airport luggage check in at the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is very clean, pleasant surroundings, great for children.......however the food court needs better choices .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quite a lovely setting"
The service and the ambiance were wonderful at the hotel. The room was always clean and fresh towels available to us. The bathroom was so small and dimly lit that a large person would have a lot of trouble taking a shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean very convenient"
The hotel was in great condition the people were very friendly and accommodating. The only down side was that we were not informed about how the magic bands worked all together it would have been nice if the staff could have explained what the magic bands can all do. Oh and the food was not very good and very expensive but that was all of Disney not […] just the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sea serpent pool a big hit!"
We loved being given adjoining rooms with our granddaughter. The sea serpent pool was the best we had ever seen. Our granddaughter is almost 5years old and the first day she was scared of it. The second day she wanted to try the slide but kept backing out. The third day she tried the slide and loved it. Also the store and the restauant were great, as […] was the help. The only drawback was that it was a half hour busride to Magic Kingdom. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great pools esp for kids"
Only drawback is distance from parking to rooms but if you aren't in a hurry there are carts that can shuttle you also 3.00 for a bottle of pop is a tad highGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very nice. Super clean and everyone was really friendly and helpful. The only downfall was the lack of a real restaurant on the premises. They have a cafeteria style food area with a lot of choices but not an actual sit down restaurant. Other than that I would stay there again and I would recommend it. One plus was being able to take the […] boat to downtown disney instead of a bus. That was nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to bring family.. Shuttle service is the way to go. Water taxi so relaxing. Had a great couple of days. Very accommodating. Will definitely be back!! Only negative comment would be the pacing lifeguards. They literally pace in a quick like fashion back and forth. It is hard to relax and watch the kids. Don't get me wrong, I love that there […] are lifeguards on duty, but I think they can do a great job at a more relaxed pace. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great moderate resort experience"
We had stayed at the Wilderness Lodge in the past and chose this French Quarter this time because we needed two rooms and it was such a reasonable price. The room had two queen beds and enough room to store our clothes and still move around in comfort. It was quiet and the air conditioning was controlled by a thermostat and kept us cool and comfortable. […] The reviews mentioned the noisy toilets. They are a bit noisy--but it was not a problem for us. It is easy to walk to your room and there is an elevator in every building. The atmosphere was great--the New Orleans theme was carried out throughout the resort. We were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed this resort! Be sure to see Yahoo Bob at the Riverside lounge. What a great performer! So fun!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved everything about this hotel: the pool, the gift shop, the staff, the transportation convenience. It was great. We would stay here again in a minuteGenuine Expedia guest review
