about Disney's Port Orleans - French Quarter:
Rooms here fit Disney's "moderate" pricing structure and offer a bit more space than the value resorts like the All-Star, but the atmosphere is definitely a step up. Bedspreads on the standard two queen beds have a carnivale theme - check them closely for hidden Mickeys! All rooms have a small refrigerator, television with cable (including the Disney Channel, but not Nickelodeon), hair dryers, coffee pots, and in-room safes. Pak-n-Play Cribs are also available upon request. High Speed Internet Access is available on a pay-per-day basis utilizing an Ethernet port.
As for activities, there's an arcade and also a nice playground in view from the outside seating at the Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory food court which serves a wide selection of items for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Kids can fill up on traditional Beignets - powdered sugar covered pastries - at breakfast, or Chicken Nuggets and Mickey Mouse shaped Goldfish for dinner and then slide off that extra energy.
The pool is probably the main attraction at the resort, and can get busy since guests from the French Quarter and its sister resort, Port Orleans - Riverside, can utilize the facilties. The sea serpent water slide has some power and speed to it, so hang out at the bottom to catch younger children. Or, play under the alligator band that sprays water into the pool. The youngest family members can play with their own water horn tooting reptile in the kiddie pool - but watch out for purple lips since the main pool always seems to be warmer than the tot area.
Buses are the provided form of transportation to the theme parks, but use the water taxi instead to get to Downtown Disney and Pleasure Island. The buses make multiple stops, so the boat is just as fast and rarely as crowded.
