    Port Orleans Resort

    I have stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside several times but never the Port Orleans French Quarter, what is the difference between the two, and which do you think is better?

    Thanks!!!!

    I haven't stayed at Riverside but I picked PO because it's the smallest hotel on site. I throughly enjoyed it. If you want smaller and quieter I would recommend it.

    The french quarter has slightly larger rooms... and is closer to DTD... thats it.. (they are next door to each other.. not much difference besides minor theme..)

    I stayed at POFQ last year. The rooms were wonderful. The reseort is newly remodeled. There is nothing quite like heading back to your hotel room at night with a brand new comfy bed waiting for you after a hard day of walking.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    The rooms are actually the exact same size. The difference is the theming. Deb Wills has photos of both resorts as well as info on both on her wonderful site (www.wdwig.com). I have stayed at both resorts many times, including the past year. I prefer FQ for the theming and much smaller size, but both are wonderful places to stay at WDW.

    POFQ is my favorite resort on property (and yes, I've stayed Deluxe before - DAK ties with POFQ for me! hehe). It's small, beaautiful, and just a lovely, lovely place to spend your vacation.

    French Quarter was simply wonderful. Ask for a river view room.

    POFQ is one of my favorite Disney resorts due its small size and theming. The only thing the resort lacks is a table restaurant and a lounge. You can walk, or take an internal resort bus, to Riverside if you desire a sit-down meal or an adult beverage in the evening. By day, they do have a pool bar.

    Our stay at POFQ was one of my favorite parts of the trip.

    It has the most 'deluxe' feel of all the WDW moderates. It also seems quieter with less screaming brats running wild.

    French Quarter has no sit down restaurant, if that is important to you.
