Playful and Fun at Port Orleans French Quarter

The French Quarter at Port Orleans is amazing for the adults with a sense of Mardi Gras but whimsical for the kids with an alligator ragtime band welcoming you to the heart of this Disney World Moderate Resort. Walking out of the rear doors of the main hall, where you check-in to the Port Orleans French Quarter, you are greeted by a group of alligators partying in the walkway. Kids love seeing them with their instruments, and it gives you a great start at making memories by taking pictures of your kids interacting with them.

The courtyards and water fountains make for beautiful grounds to sit and enjoy the quiet areas. Your kids will have other things on their minds like the Doubloon Lagoon Pool with Water Slide and Kids Splash Park. There are also a couple of playgrounds they will enjoy.
