    Last year my family went to Caribbean Beach and we all loved it but to my knowledge this year we have decided to go back to Disney and stay at Port Orleans French Quarter. We noticed that Caribbean Beach has some major construction going on. I have stayed at Port Orleans once before when i was little. Can anyone tell me if it has changed much i haven't been to port orleans since i was 8 or 9. Please let me know!!!!

    Here are a few photos from our last stay there in '05. We stayed in the Alligator Bayou area. We really like it and have tried to stay there every time. You should also check out the POR resort info threads. They'll have many more photos to see and comments to read! :cool1:

    Those are obviously Riverside pics. I have stayed at both in the past two years. Sorry but I don't have any French Quater pics handy.

    Whoops! I didn't see the FQ bit until after I posted those. :lol: Yea, we walked the entire resort. I don't have very in-depth ones though, because that's not the area we stayed in. You will be able to get an idea of the grounds though. Like I said before, you should check out the POR thread. There you'll find everything you'll need. :)

    It no longer has a TS. Though there is a lounge, Scat Cats, with a jazz musician preforming Wed-Sun featuring Eliott Dyson. It now shares buses with POR, but POFQ is first on and off for the parks. There is now a fridge in the room. It's still as peaceful as can be.

    We went last spring break. It was just me and the kids, DH went to the Final Four, and we loved that everything was so close. Since it was our first time, I don't know if anything has changed, but the buses were fine and it was great to be first on and first off.

    My DD loved the food court options for breakfast--we're staying at the Poly this spring break and she disappointed about not having the food court:confused3.

    The grounds and theming are great. We loved it--it's our fave mod.

    Can you explain. What was close? the parks? You took the transportation? How long did it take you for each park? Trying to decide between this asn ASM.

    I think what she means is the resort is real small and compact and a short walk from the lobby, bus stop, boat dock etc. on the resort itself.

    Yes to what YesMickey said. Sorry I didn't clarify. The resort is compact--not sure on exact minutes to the parks, but not bad at all. We just really enjoyed it--hope you do too!:goodvibes

    POFQ is my favorite mod. We love that it's small and only has 1 bus stop, all the rooms are close to the pool and food court. We also love the option of using the ammenities at POR without having to deal with the size of a HUGE resort and the crowds. When we stayed at POFQ in 2006, we booked a horse drawn carriage ride at POR and loved it, the grounds of both resorts are just beautiful. The boat to DTD is a great perk as well. You'll love this resort.
