And Disney already had Port Orleans right? A New Orleans themed resort? So they must not hate it that much...

New Orleans was Walt's favorite city. He said it himself. Port Orleans, New Orleans square in Disneyland, and the fact that Tianna is from here all represent that. With that said, I don't want DCL here. It might lose some of its luster if I can see it every week.

I can see it now - DCL on the Mississippi River - start to finish! Dodging river barges and gambling riverboats! Not too many interesting ports along the way though...

Do you suppose they would still offer a PC Disney day? If so, this would probably be my perfect cruise. Because it's an easy drive and 2 of our 3 have been out of NOLA and the only advantage to me of PC was Disney, but the drive is closer to 13-14 vs 9 to NOLA. If we could embark there and still get a hopping day (like they were doing in Galv) that would be like the perfect trip for me.

Plus I love me some NOLA food!

And that pesky New Orleans Square over at Disneyland. Where Club 33 is. (best mai tai ever!)




As to the 2015 dates, I am most definitely not any sort of expert at all, but I think that will have to wait just a bit longer until they figure out all the changes that started yesterday. After all, they have Jan 2 2015 as a place-holder date on many/all? of our accounts; those of us who booked a 2014 that's being changed, that is, so they can't open that year until they have that all cleared up.

I think.

I would personally love NOLA. We are in the FL panhandle, so NOLA is actually about half the distance that PC is for us, so that would make it way more convenient.

We actually just got back from a quick weekend in NOLA for my birthday. It was me, my 65 year old mom and my 7 year old daughter. We all had a blast! My DD and I did the Zoo and Aquarium and Storybook Land over by the Botanical Garden, while Nana shopped and enjoyed the French Quarter. Great dinner at the Court of Two Sisters...And I do think NOLA is really trying to change its image and be more family friendly.

Another vote for Nola as departure port. Much closer for us also.
