Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter

Revel in the romance and pageantry of New Orleans’s historic French Quarter at this Moderate Resort hotel, where cobblestone streets, gas lamps, wrought-iron balconies and fragrant magnolia blossoms evoke the Antebellum era and colorful Mardi Gras characters and jazz keep things lively. Then stroll along the lushly landscaped Sassagoula River to Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, where the bayou beckons, as do Cajun and Creole specialties.

Pool with Waterslide

Parade around this Mardi Gras-themed pool area where King Neptune sits astride a giant sea serpent. Scale “Scales,” as he’s affectionately known, and slide down his tongue for a splash landing. Jazz-loving gators and clamshell water features add more poolside panache while a hot tub and the nearby Mardi Grogs pool bar let the good times roll.

Scat Cat’s Club

Sip on a hurricane as you groove to the smooth sounds of a one-man jazz band on select evenings.

Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides

Clip-clop up and down the scenic Sassagoula River in a carriage seating up to 4 adults. Fee applies.
