Which of Disney's Port Orleans Resorts are Right For You?

Port Orleans

Unique Offerings

Guests staying at Riverside can specially reserve a Royal Room which features unique flourishes to the room from “Princess and the Frog,” as well as other Disney princesses.  Guests choosing to stay at French Quarter can enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride around the stone streets throughout the resort.  After a long day in the parks, guests will definitely enjoy relaxing and cooling off in the lounge available at either resort.  At Riverside, guests can relax at the River Roost Lounge while enjoying the entertainment of Yeehaw Bob, while guests at French Quarter will enjoy the entertainment at Scat Cat’s Lounge! 


The grounds at Riverside offer guests sprawling paths to explore, as well as resort buildings that change from large Southern estates to more rustic cabins.  The main pool is designed to reflect a swimming hole in a shaded atmosphere.  Over at French Quarter, guests will find well-manicured gardens and small streets and colorful buildings with wrought-iron finishings that make guests feel like they are exploring the real French Quarter.  The pool digs into the pageantry guests would find in New Orleans at Marci Gras with large cartoon alligators playing a variety of instruments!

All of the resorts at Disney offer unique additions to the standard room that guests will find appealing, but if you are trying to decide between either of the Port Orleans Resorts, be sure to consider where the resorts differ in making the right decision for your vacation.  Have you stayed at either resort?  Which do you enjoy and why?
