Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Review

038 (Small)On my recent trip to the 2013 runDisney The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Weekend, I had the pleasure of staying at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter.  This was a quick 2-night trip to the World and then I would be traveling on for business.

039 (Small)As a Disney Vacation Club Member, I don’t normally have the pleasure of staying in a non DVC resort and I was excited to see first-hand the resort that many of my non-DVC friends had vacationed.

POFQ is considered a moderate resort in the Downtown Disney Area.  I would recommend staying there for WDW Marathon Weekend and Princess Weekend due to its proximity to EPCOT.

The guest rooms are located in 3-story buildings and they have elevators.  I had already checked into the resort via My Disney Experience.  I had ordered my Magic Band, linked my annual pass and my reservation.042 (Small)

The rooms are similar to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.  There are 2 queen-size beds, a table with 2 chairs, mini refrigerator, flat-screen TV, and double-sinks.  Free WIFI is included.

POFQ’s food court, Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory, is open throughout the day.  I enjoyed both a light snack and an early dinner before my race.  The cuisine is your choice –  typical park food or New Orleans favorites.

The pool, Doubloon Lagoon, was very nice.  It featured a bright blue sea serpent waterside.  Pool activities for the guests were underway when I visited.  There was also a pool bar and it was quite crowded!

045 (Small)I had booked my trip with Amy Smith (www.pumpkintoprincess.com) from Mouseplanner. I had a wonderful experience with Amy and highly recommend her services.  She took care of booking my room, Magical Express transportation and requesting a room closer to the main check in area (due to my recent surgery and on-going treatment).   She can be reached at amy@mousekeplanner.com.
