Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
I am just back from a birthday trip to Walt Disney World. We stayed at my favorite moderate resort – Port Orleans French Quarter! I love this resort for so many reasons.
French Quarter is the smallest of the moderate resorts, meaning that even the furthest rooms from the main building are still only a 5 minute walk. (Compared to Riverside which is more than double the size!) The resort has a very peaceful feel to it and is beautifully themed with wrought iron, fountains, gorgeous landscaping, and clever street names. ("Rue D'Baga" anyone?)
The dragon-themed pool is a hit with kids and grown ups alike. And tucked away from the activity at the pool is a hot tub!
Another reason to love this resort are the activties on offer. Every evening features outdoor movies and a campfire complete with toasted marshmellows. The pool has games and contests in the afternoon. And romantic carriage rides are available!
Last but not least is the food. While French Quarter is also the only moderate resort without its own table service restaurant, it more than makes up for the lack with a great food court. The Sassagould Float Works food court features many offerings for breakfast lunch and dinner including pasta dishes, cajun dishes such as jambalaya, burgers, fried chicken and more. But most importantly – they make fresh beignets throughout the day! These little pillows of fried dough dusted in powedered sugar are to die for.
I left only 24 hours ago but I am already counting the days until I can return to Port Orleans French Quarter!
Be well and make magic wherever you go!
