Key points as to why one should stay at French Quarters:
1. Smaller resort which means less walking to room from bus stop. Less walking from room to pool, dining or laundry room.
2. Only 1 bus stop so you don't have the numerous loading and unloading of guests at 6 different resort bus stops. This means less time getting to Parks from resort.
3. Boat can take you to Disney Springs and to other Port Orleans Resort.
4. You can park your car only 100 feet from the door to your room. This makes luggage handling easy.
5. Ample green space between buildings that show outside movies at dark.
6. Numerous Big Easy parks within the resort to sit down on benches and read or watch nature.
7. Plus you have the same Disney customer service as you would at any Disney resort.
So if you are on a limited budget and cannot afford the premier resorts at Disney World, the Port Orleans French Quarter offers the best of convenience and accessibility for your money. Keep in mind that one usually walks around 10 miles a day at Disney World, so the less one has to walk to their room is ideal. French Quarter allows you access to ALL of Disney World's EXCITEMENT within a few short minutes on a bus or boat. This makes the resort an IDEAL place to stay while visiting Disney World.

We have stayed a number of the Disney World Resorts but we always come back to French Quarter. It is a smaller resort which means your room is close to the dining area and the pool. There is only one bus stop, so there is no driving around the whole resort. There is a boat to take you to Downtown Disney and it is a lovely ride. You can take a horse-drawn carriage ride or a leisurely walk along the river. It is also quiet and peaceful. You will enjoy it.
