    port orleans french quater rooms?

    ok we're staying in the port orleans french quater when we go to WDW in the winter, and i was wondering if anyone else was stayed there and maybe had somepictures of the rooms?
    all i can find on the internet is pics of the outside, dinning places, game room, and gift shops, but i want to see what our rooms look like
    and if anyone has any pics they'de like to share with me from the disney wonder cruise (we're going on that too!!! ) that would be nice
    thanks in advance

    Not to promote another site ... but www.allears.net has some great reviews and pictures of all of the resorts at WDW.

    allears.net is excellent, and most of the information is dead accurate! (They do have a few mistakes, hence why I said "most."

    I'd link to them too.

    Port Orleans French Quarter is my FAVORITE resort on property. I love the theme, your centralized to just about every park and they have that great boat that takes you to DTD which is a great break from the bus.

    I also love the All Ears website for photos, they are very informative.

    Here are the photos I have taken over the years as well.

    Enjoy!

    Unfortunately the resizing feature is not working for the code generation of Webshots. But if you click on the thumbnails, you can see the pics.

    One of the best hotels on property in my opinion, and I agree, allears is a great website, which has some of the most comprehensive pics in one spot.

    My wife has this thing about taking pictures of rooms we stay in. Doesn't matter if it's a Holiday Inn or a hospital room, we end up having to take pictures of it, if it was nice in some manner. So for the rare interior shots you may not find:

    Nice Pictures. Looks like the room is set up like the Carribean, just without the counter. Not sure about that one.

    What I don't understand is why all these hotels (not just Disney) insist on putting tiny little TV's on big tables, or big entertainment centers???

    Seeing those pictures makes me want to go! Like Summer and yoyo, this is my favorite resort as well. The small size is perfect. We often park the car in the front of the resort just so we can walk through the resort and soak up the atmosphere.

    Have a great time and don't forget to try the beignets! They are to die for!

    It might be a little decieving due to the angle, but the TV there was roughly a 25 to 30 inch.

    I think this resort has great themeing and one really big thing going for it. It has a boat that goes over to DTD and PI so you don't have to worry about busses or driving. believe me it was a big help when my daughter and her friend decided to go partying one night. Also when we stayed there it was nice and quiet.

    I'm looking forward to taking the water taxi to DTD in May. Will definitely beat driving over and finding a parking spot.

    The boat stops running by 11:00 p.m. But they always have bus service, too. The buses run all the time, not just when the boats aren't running.

    The buses are faster, but the boats are a MUCH better way to go.

    There is only one spot the POR/POFQ boats dock at DTD. It's in the Marketplace, right next to the Rainforest Cafe.

    Also, the boats don't run in bad weather.

    I've used the water taxi to get from one side of DTD to the other a few times now. Sure beats walking! I thought the boats stopped running when it got dark but they run until DTD closes I guess from what you're saying. Cool!
