Hi!! I have been to WDW numerous times in my life but have never stayed at POFQ, or even visited it for that matter. So, my DH and I are just doing the DCL this year and decided to stay at POFQ the night before our cruise. Originally we were going to stay at the airport Hyatt and visit DTD but a cab would be $110 round trip so it just makes more sense to stay at a Disney Resort and I figured POFQ would be perfect since we have never stayed there and it's next DTD. Yay, I can't wait!!!

Let me add, we will save $49 staying at POFQ. It's minimal but any excuse to stay at a Disney Resort is a good one, right??? Lol

We're heading back in May and I'm going to give them another try just in case we got a bad batch.

Pool Refurb

Hi to all you recent Port Orleans French Quarter travelers! Curious if there were any major changes to the Doubloon Lagoon Pool from the 7 week closure for rehab?

I would be interested in this info also. Wondering if a fence was added to the pool area as was rumored several months ago.

We had good ones in 06...but I have to say the ones we had in 2011 at Disneyland's French Quarter area were WAY better: shaped like Mickey and tasted like Cafe Du Monde ones.

Someone posted the dimensions of the French Quarter windows on here (or maybe the previous thread?) but I cannot find it. If any of you know where it is, please could you link me to it?

I'm headed to the FQ in 2 weeks. It will be my first trip to Disney. Is there anything I should be sure not to miss?

We were contemplating a stay at the airport Hyatt because I've heard such good things about it, but an equally obsessed friend pointed out we could stay at POR instead for the night and the price was about the same. An extra day at Disney versus hanging at the airport was an easy decision to make (as nice as I've heard the Hyatt is).

Thank you so much. Your post made me smile .... a few years ago I took a measure with me to get dimensions for someone else. You'd think I would have kept a note of it

I am going to decorate our window this year but don't know how long to make the strands of ribbon
