Pics for FQ have been put with POR pic thread but how about a separate one for FQ, they are really very different even though they are both Port Orleans.:thumbsup2

This is my absolute favorite moderate resort!!! You'll love it!! It's small & compact, so it's easy to get everywhere here. There is a water launch to DTD. It does share some of it's buses with PO Riverside, BUT ALWAYS picks up & drops off at PO French Quarter first. I enjoy building 5, as it's central to everything.

We go in September every year. We always ask to be in building#5, as close to the pool as possible, and they have always honored this request. It's also close to the food court and the bus stops.

Thanks so much for posting all these great pictures! :goodvibes I am so excited about our trip in January! It will be our first time and I have wanted to stay at this resort since my last trip to the WORLD in 1994! Thanks you Terk1 for the picture of the kid's waiting area! I was trying to find out if there was an area with a TV etc for the kiddos to hang out at while us parents check in! :)

Keep the great pics coming! Thanks to all who post! :cool1:

We stayed at POFQ in January 2006. So far, it's our favorite moderate resort. Here are some of our photos. (These were all taken before I went digital.)

The stairway from the 3rd floor. I just loved the detail work.

How cool it appears you are on the second floor on an end room facing the hot tub/laundry room with your end wall as the corridor wall leading to the rooms on the inside courtyard area. When we stayed there in February, we were in the room behind you that faces the inside courtyard. Our bathroom wall is adjacent to that room's bathroom wall.:thumbsup2

We will be there in August 08 and I just love all the great reviews and lovely pictures. I'm getting very excited. Do they have elevators? We are staying in a standard room. Do they all have great views? Should I request a particular bldg? With 2 boys 6 & 8 I need to have a good view but accessible to pool, buses, or food court. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Love the 360 photos. I've seen them before and always marvelled at how you managed to get them so people-free during daylight hours! Did you need to do anything special to take them, I might have a go at POR next trip.

Thanks for the nice words! Love doing the 360 shots, seems to give a real prospective :) I Try to shoot around people, and I shoot enough shots that I can stitch them together and sometimes get rid of the people that way. We are going to the CR over the 4th, bet I don't have that kind of luck!!!

wow! sdzman, those are great pics that I haven't seen before, especially the one of the dragon slide next to the river...I had no idea the pool was that close to the water...how beautiful!!! Do you have any more???

The similarity to the actual French Quarter is what is cool. The pic of the "riverwalk" in between the pool and the river reminds me of the riverwalk in NO between Jax's Brewery along the river to the Aquarium and the Riverwalk mall. Have stayed at POFQ and PORx2 and have never noticed that.:thumbsup2

It will be our first time and I have wanted to stay at this resort since my last trip to the WORLD in 1994! Thanks you Terk1 for the picture of the kid's waiting area! I was trying to find out if there was an area with a TV etc for the kiddos to hang out at while us parents check in! :)

Keep the great pics coming! Thanks to all who post! :cool1:

There is a T.V. in the food court also for the kids.:thumbsup2

Thank you for all the pictures! POFQ is our favorite resort. We stayed there almost every year until the price jump/value resorts. I have so many pictures of me from my youth around the resort - especially posing with those gators ;)

Now that it's up to me, it makes me so excited to see the pictures and plan to go back to FQ. Woohoo!

Oh gosh I get goosebumps looking at this thread! We leave in 50 days and it's so exciting. My husband refuses to let me show him any pictures of POFQ because he wants to be surprised. I did all the research, planning and booking and he just wants to enjoy it all with our girls, whatever I have planned. These 50 days can't fly soon enough!

Facing the pool from the river, Building #5 is on the right. We request that building each year. Good location for the pool, food court and buses.

Thanks for all the pics of POFQ. We're so excited for our upcoming stay there! The kids and I just finished our countdown sticker calendar (only 31 more days!). This will be my family's second WDW vacation (my fourth) and first time stay on-site for all of us.

I'm curious, has anyone taken the carriage ride around the resort and if so, did you think it was worth it?

Also, what did you think of the food at the cafes/restaurants there? Is it a long haul to the other restaurants and themed pool at POR?

Thank you for any tips!

Grin, we're a day ahead of you on the countdown front. :)

The carriage ride is fun, it lasts about 25 mins and is a relaxing way to see the resort. It sets off from the POR marina area and goes over to POFQ and back.

The walk over to POR is about 850 yards and is a very nice 10 minute stroll. The food court there is much like POFQ's in terms of food quality, but is a good deal bigger and has a little more choice. Boatwright's is the table-service restaurant at POR which serves food with a slightly cajun feel.

Thanks for your great photos! We are considering a short stay at POFQ..........but it will be my hubby's first stay at a moderate and I don't want him to be disappointed! Please tell me that we'll love it!!!

Do they operate a boat between French Quarter and Riverside? What was the carriage ride like? Do all of the standard view rooms look over parking lots!
Loving the pictures!

Stayed at this resort for the first time in March...it was one of only two I've never stayed at (now down to 1!). And I absolutely fell in love with it. The ambiance, the design, the peacefulness, the layout...wonderful. The rooms were like any other moderate...but of them all I loved this resort theme the best. Here are some of my French Quarter shots from the March stay:

Thanks Kaffinito. Hopefully in about a month, I can get over there and take a few more! Even when I don't stay there, I like to take the boat over from Marketplace for a beignet and coffee!

I think it just depends if people are able to post pics, and how many want to?.........When we stayed at POP 2 years ago we never really thought to take lots of pics of the resort.
We are going in a month and plan to take loads of pics and will post them then.
We originally were meant to be there now, but our travel firm went belly up 3 days before our holiday.....we managed to rebook for November but as we had lost out on free dining had to go for POP as we thought we couldn't afford a mod.
Today though we just decided to go for it and upgraded to POFQ! Credit crunch....what credit crunch???????

WOW! I'm happy you were able to fix a trip. Scary about your travel firm. That's a fear of mine. I book Disney on my own, but I'd love to get to Europe sometime and I'd probably want help with that one. Please do take pictures of POFQ for me! I'm going in December, but only for 2 days, and I'm really enjoying the pictures everyone is posting!

Hi DisneyFreak 06,
DH is planning on stalking the grounds of the resort with his camera....he'll probably get arrested. :lmao: But hopefully he'll have got some photos before hand.
It's been pretty hairy over here lately, there's been a few travel companies that have gone bust. We're now going with Virgin, I think if you stick to the 'big' companies you should be ok. :thumbsup2

We always bring our own wreaths and Christmas trees. And, because I have two daughters who are just as persnickety as I am, we theme them for the resort where we are staying. Same trees every year, different decorations! Mardi Gras beads, gold ribbon with purple/green/red polka dots, and multicolored glass balls were perfect for POFQ!

We pack up the Christmas decorations over Thanksgiving vacation and about 10 days before our trip is to begin I ship them to our resort so they are there waiting for us. If you decide to do a wreath, remember the over-the-door wreath hangar!

Thank you so much for this tip!! :goodvibes

This will be our first stay at this resort. From all the pictures we have seen we are really looking forward to it. I know everyone talks about the decorations at the Deluxe resorts. But...Oh my goodness it looks like the POFQ has been terribly overlooked.

Hi POFQ Experts!

I have several questions about this resort:

1) Do they 'pipe in' music along the walkways like they do in some other resorts? If so, is it jazz?

2) I heard that Scat Cat Club offers jazz music some evenings - is this true? And if so, does this lounge welcome kids like POR's RiverRoost does? The reason I ask, is that my 14 year old is an avid jazz musician & would dearly love to hear some jazz during our trip, He's 14 & very mature. He has wanted to visit the Scat Cat anyway to see the jazz memorabilia.

3) The buildings that were formerly smoking buildings - can you still smell the smoke? I'm extremely allergic & even if there's a tiny hint of smoke residue I'll end up sick. Just want to be pro-active in requesting a building, if we decide to stay here.

I'm really torn right now & would welcome advice. My sister & I with my son & niece planned to go to Disney next month & have reservations at POR. Sadly my brother-in-law's mom passed away suddenly, so obviously my sister doesn't want to leave him alone next month (MIL lived with them) so we are switching our reservations to June. My sister already switched hers & they gave her a very good rate at POFQ (I think due to the death in the family, though no one explained anything). Anyway, I don't want for her to miss out on the great rate & we want to be in the same resort. But I had my heart set on POR. I love it & have always wanted to stay there. I'd love to hear thoughts from anyone who has knowledge of the 2 places. I know POFQ has excellent ratings, but I don't know much about it. For some reason, it just didn't move me the way POR did. I realize they share facilities, but... HELP!

Sorry to ramble on...thanks!!!

1) Do they 'pipe in' music along the walkways like they do in some other resorts? If so, is it jazz?

Yes and yes - but it's a relatively short loop so you won't get a lot of variety. It sets the scene very nicely though.

2) I heard that Scat Cat Club offers jazz music some evenings - is this true? And if so, does this lounge welcome kids like POR's RiverRoost does?

Yes they do, there's a sax player called Elliot Dyson who plays Wed-Sat evenings. Meant to be very good saxophonist, poignant and rocking vocalist, bluesy guitar player with some steel drums added to the mix. He has a web site giving more information on his shows at www.elliotdyson.com (http://www.elliotdyson.com/). Kids are welcome at both POR and POFQ lounges (but then you know about Yeeha Bob already).

3) The buildings that were formerly smoking buildings - can you still smell the smoke?

No, they have been non smoking for some time now and were deep cleaned anyway. You may still find an odd few inconsiderate people smoking around the resort, even though there are designated smoking spots.


As you say, you can share all the facilities anyway, so whichever resort you end up in you can experience the entertainment at the other - it's a ten minute walk, so no problem in popping back and forth. Both resorts are great (and the music at POR is good too, same general idea).

When my husband and I were deciding what resort we were going to stay at for our 10th anniversity in 2012. We decided Port Orleans. We looked at pitures of riverside and decided that, but when I saw all thses pictures of the French Quarter, we've decided to stay there instead. so thank you for the pictures.:sunny:

we are celebrating our 10th anniversary next may @ pofq too!!! we've stayed at POR before and we loved the kayaks, and the boat taxi. we said next time we stay there we want to stay in the french qtr and stay in a room facing the canal. so, we are excited!! you need to be sure and do the carriage ride! it was so much fun and you got to see a lot of the resort.

I'm so torn, should I do the carriage ride during the day or the evening? Normally I'd pick evening as close to Illuminations, but it won't be going off until 9:30 while we are there. DBF has never been to WDW, so having him see the resort during the day would be great. But then I want to see Elliot Dyson too. UGGGGHHHH!!!!!

The carriage ride doesn't run in the daytime, only early evening. Usually 5.30/6pm - 9/9.30pm. You could certainly combine a carriage ride with an evening at Scat Cat's watching Elliot Dyson.

Looking at these pics makes me want to be there NOW!!!

I'll be staying there for one night on 11/15. I got a great rate using the new code. I was staying at Pop (already stayed at) preferred room, for $99 + tax, and a week or two later I upgraded to POFQ for only $8.99 more. Needless to say, I was excited!!!

We were there from 31 Oct-14 Nov, most days were high 70s/low 80s. It did get cool in the evenings, colder some nights more than others.
We only had 2 days when it was pretty cool and overcast - I think it only reached mid 60s, but generally sunny with only a few showers.
You'll love POFQ, it's beautiful, initimate (for WDW) and relaxed.

Adults can (and do) use the slide. However, the rule is only one person on the slide at a time. So if you had a small child - he/she would have to go alone. Just want to make sure everyone knew that.

We are leaving in 3 weeks and will stay in FQ for 5 nights before we get a 3-day cruise!! The pictures are absolutely helpful!! And I am calling today to make sure I can get rooms in building 5!! :dance3: We did request water view rooms, but have not been confirmed room numbers yet.

We also asked for pull out beds for the kids, does anyone have a picture of that?

My dh went to LSU, and would love to stay in FQ!! In fact we were trying to take the kids to Madi Gras this year, but didn't make it because of sickness. Oh well, I am so excited now.

I will report back with my own pictures when I come back!!! Yeah!!!:banana:

Hi Jessica. I'll be there from June 6-13! I hear it's not as hot or humid as it is in late August when I usually travel, and I'm choosing to believe that as it makes me happy. I'm also hoping it's not super busy since it's before some schools let out. :rolleyes1

Hi!

Maybe we'll run into each other! Last trip we ran into other Dis-ers at the Beer Garden (Candlelight Processional Package). I'm traveling with my DS 15, my DSis & DN 14. I'll have on some lime green, somewhere, so please say "Hi" if you see us (I have chin-length red hair).

I'm hoping the same thing about the schools. It should definitely be better, temp-wise, than August. I spent a summer in St. Pete many years ago & it was miserable. I've never done an August Disney trip. We usually travel in November, but I promised my son Star Wars Weekends - he's been a fan since age 2!

I can't wait for Disney to post the June calender, so I can see if the tentative schedule I made will work. (I'm not anxious, LOL!) We can make ADR's next weekend - that always makes it more real.

I'll look for you. I'm solo this time, but I'm planning on putting a lime mickey on my fanny pack. I realized about a month after I booked that SWW were at that time, and I'm looking forward to the parade myself! It was a nice surprise even if it makes things more crowded at DHS.

The food court was much more charming in person than I expected it to be. You have to crank your camera to a fairly extreme angle to get shots of some of the decor and for me it just felt different in person than how it had appeared in all of the pictures I had seen.
