Disney's Port Orleans Resort French Quarter in Lake Buena Vista, Florida is just 1 mile from Epcot® and within 5 miles of Magic Kingdom® Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios™, Disney's take on New Orleans is as magical and whimsical as the Big Easy itself, with the added benefit of being family-friendly.
Guests arrive into a New Orleans-style train depot, and are ushered into a 2-story inner courtyard with the reception desk. Buildings are bordered by gardens and cobblestone streets, and some offer views of the resort pool or the Sassagoula River. Mardi Gras prevails at the Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory, where large replicas of floats are suspended from warehouse-like ceilings. Outdoor fun includes the Doubloon Lagoon, a water playground with alligator fountains and a colorful, Mardi Gras- inspired slide in the shape of a dragon. The resort also features a separate children's pool, playground, game arcade, bike rentals and watercraft rentals. Wireless Internet access is complimentary.
Guests can also visit the Port Orleans Resort, a Louisiana- riverboat-themed hotel only Mark Twain or Disney could have imagined. Complimentary ferryboats on the Sassagoula River transport guests to the Downtown Disney® area . The Scat Cat's jazz-themed lounge offers guests a retreat from the bright and busy theme parks, and a poolside bar where guests can enjoy snacks in the warm Florida sun. Complimentary theme park shuttles are provided for guests.
Mardi Gras-inspired guestrooms feature rich, blue color schemes, French- inspired paintings and antique-style furnishings, creating the warm southern style for which New Orleans is famous. All rooms have tables and chairs, coffeemakers, complimentary wired Internet access, multiline phones, in- room safes, cable television and dual vanity areas
