Photo Tour of a Standard Room at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter

PHOTO TOUR OF A STANDARD ROOM AT DISNEY’S PORT ORLEANS FRENCH QUARTER

Floor Plan Standard Room Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Standard rooms at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort are about as “standard” as you’ll find at the Disney World’s traditional moderate resorts.*

You’ll find in these French Quarter rooms two queens–standard now at all the moderates except the Pirate rooms at Caribbean Beach; typical furnishings; two sinks–standard at the moderates except for Coronado Springs; and sleeping spaces for four–standard except for the Alligator Bayou section of Port Orleans Riverside and many of the newly-refurbed rooms at Caribbean Beach.

Here’s a shot of these beds from the bath side of the room.

The grace and formality of the decor of the beds is typical of what you’ll find throughout the room, in, for example, the wallpaper border.

The wall on this side that the separates the bedroom space from the bath has New Orleans-inspired art.

TV Side Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter from yourfirstvisit.net
The other side of the room has a table and two chairs, dresser/TV/mini-fridge, and a small ottoman.

Dresser Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter from yourfirstvisit.net
I thought the dresser was particularly nice, especially with the inlaid wood treatment.

Here’s a close-up of the inlay effect.

Dresser Drawers and Mini-Fridge Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter from yourfirstvisit.net
The three drawers are typical of the moderates, and a little scant for most families–though there’s a large hanging area with a shelf above in the bath. You’ll find the mini-fridge in the dresser, too.

Next along this side is a small bench seat, with coat hooks above. You can see too here a bit of the curtain that you can draw to close off the sink area from the rest of the room.

Bath Sinks Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter from yourfirstvisit.net
Inside the first part of the bath area, you’ll find two sinks…

The rest of the bath, with the tub and toilet, is separated by a wall and door.

Hi, awesome website.
No table service at french quarter.
My family has ALOT of food allergies and I am worried that all restaurants on site may have little in way of gluten free, dairy free, soy free options.
Is the sister property, port orleans river side in walking distance? How far is it and how many sit downs do they have?

Hi Jason and thanks!! It’s about a ten minute walk away (there’s also boat and bus service), and has one table service restaurant. See also this: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/guest-services/special-dietary-requests/
