What Readers Are Saying About Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter

We stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter and I think Disney may have won me over - the experience was wonderful. The hotel was quiet, the pool was uncrowded, and the Mickey beignets were as good as promised.

French Quarter is small and convenient, and easy to Disney Springs for some shopping/food.

Our room at POFQ, #3125, was as far as you can get from everything else at the resort. However, that little extra walking meant that for our standard room rate, we had a fantastic view of the river from our window. It was also very quiet with little foot traffic.

We took your recommendation on French Quarter being the quietest and smallest hotel. We loved it! Thanks!

Dining

The on-site food court is fine for a few quick meals. It's a short walk to Port Orleans Riverside's food court, but mostly the same food there too.

Port Orleans French Quarter Pizza Delivery

Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory Sassagoula Float Works is the food court at Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. Prices range from $6 to $15 for an entree so you won't break the bank. Some standout entrees from the Lunch and Dinner menu include the Jambalaya. None of the desserts are particularly interesting but there is a nice assortment of ice cream sundaes and shakes. Sassagoula Floatworks's most unique breakfast item is the beignets which are not New Orleans quality but are still deep fried dough and sugar which is good by us. The rest of the breakfast menu has the usual combinations of eggs, potatoes, bacon, ham, waffles, pancakes, and biscuits, either alone or in various "platter" options. An omelet station serves veggie, egg white, and Western omelets. Kids' breakfast choices are essentially the same, only with smaller portions.

Mardi Grogs Mardi Grog’s at Port Orleans French Quarter is a good, but not great, pool bar. It is pleasant to look at, successfully keeping the New Orleans theme alive, but perhaps not enough. Its setting, with several tables and lounge chairs between the bar and pool, allow it to be a bit quieter, but impacts any pool view it has. There is little reason to make a special trip to this pool bar. If you are staying at Port Orleans French Quarter, it’s a lovely place to grab a drink, but you may be better served finding a bench near a fountain or on the banks of the nearby Sassagoula River.

Scat Cat's Club - Lounge Port Orleans French Quarter is an often underrated resort when discussing theme. Its cobbled streets, wrought iron railings, and fountains make for a very pleasant stroll. Similarly, Scat Cat’s Club, located just off of the main lobby, is an underrated spot for a drink, especially in the evenings. As you would expect from a lounge at a New Orleans-themed resort, there is a mild jazz club vibe permeating the bar. While the theme is not fully carried through, the instruments next to photos of jazz greats on the wall let you know what to expect. The musical theme delivers fully Friday through Monday evenings when pianist Tom Casey performs and makes Scat Cat’s a lively spot. The drink menu at Scat Cat’s Club is also promising. They carry a few different varieties of Abita draught beer, a Louisiana brewer. There are not usually any specialty drinks listed, but it is well known that they will make some New Orleans favorites such as the Southern Hurricane (bourbon, orange juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine) and the Sazerac (rye whiskey, bitters, and lemon) provided they have the ingredients on hand. Scat Cat’s is also the test bar for Disney Parks, so you may get lucky and get to try a brand new drink before it hits a menu elsewhere.

Jackson Square

Refillable Mugs Allows guest self-service soft drink refills from quick-service locations in hotels (NOT in theme parks) for $21.99 for the length of stay.
