“Great stay at Disney's French Quarter!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

My husband and I recently returned from a four night stay at the POFQ and had a wonderful stay! We had a riverview king room in building 6 and we were very pleased with the accommodations (especially the cute towel animals every night). It was nice that we didn't have to walk too far to the bus stop or food court, but some days we chose to walk over to the Riverside pool, gift shop and food court because they had a larger variety of food it seemed. The bus service is so convenient, definitely better than renting a car! I feel the resort is really centrally located among the parks and Downtown Disney. They let us check out late too because we had a later flight...and you can even check into your flight and check your luggage for the flight right in the lobby, it was really convenient! You drop it in the lobby and don't see it again until you are at your home airport. For the little amount of time you spend at the hotel because of everything else to see in Disney…this is a great value!

Having previously stayed at All Star Sports, I was looking for something less crowded and with better transportation to the parks. POFQ was the perfect choice.

The resort is fairly small and everything is relatively close to the main area with the food court and bus stops. The resort also has a boat to Downtown Disney. The bus sometimes goes to the PO Riverside resort but always goes to POFQ first. I never had a problem getting to and from the parks unlike the previous year at AStSports.

The food court is smallish but big enough and has a decent food selection. The entire resort is themed like Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Arrive at the right time and you can get beads when you come in and at night you can listen to some great jazz. You also get to share any of the amenities at the PO Riverside resort which is a 10 minute walk or short boat ride away.

My room had a view of a garden and a parking lot (3rd floor) as it was a standard room. This didn't bother me at all as the whole place is quite pretty, and I spent my time at the parks. The room had a fridge at no additional charge but wired ethernet was $9.95 a day. I think there is now free WiFi but check on that before you go.

The room amenities were good and a cut above the value resorts. As a solo traveller I had lots of room. The mousekeepers (Disney for housekeepers) gave me wonderful towel art every day. (I did tip them everyday so that probably helped, but I appreciated their care). All of the POFQ rooms were refurbished and given queen size bed before my arrival in August, 2011.

Overall I love this place.

Room Tip: Disney has lots of price grades for this resort. Check them out in advance but all rooms are good l...

We stayed at this resort during the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend and it provided a very pleasant stay. We were in building 4 which was very convenient as it was closest to the dining area and to the bus stop. Buses to the parks was pretty regular and we never waited too long, except on one occasion. Since it was a host hotel for the race weekend they also provided very convenient shuttle transportation to the race expo at Wide World of Sports and also to the race start.

The rooms were a good size and very clean. The bathroom had two sinks which was helpful since there were 3 of us staying in the room. The only thing that was odd was that the pillow cases seemed too small for all the pillows, so they seemed firmer than they were.

Overall, great hotel to consider for a stay at Disney!

My husband, our boys (1 & 5) and I, stayed here for six nights in February and we were pleasantly surprised. The resort is very nice. It is much more compact and managable than the riverside resort located next door, which my husband and I have stayed at twice before (once with children). There is only one bus stop, but I considered this a plus. The bus does not have to waste time by stopping at multiple locations and the bus stop never seemed over crowded. It is relatively close to the parks. Animal Kingdom is the farthest 15 minutes give or take, but the other parks are less than 10 minutes. The food court is okay, although riverside has more options. The boys liked the pool. It had a nice slide for our big guy and a wading pool for our little guy. Although Disney says it heats its pool to 80 F, it was always chilly. Rooms were nice with two queen sized beds and there is a curtain to seperate the sinks from the bedroom, which adds some privacy. The only thing that would make this resort better is if they added a quiet pool (and softer pillows would be nice). In comparison to other moderate resorts that we have stayed at, I was surprised to find that I preferred this resort.

Room Tip: Building 4

We spent 10 nights here - on previous visits to Orlando/Disney we had hired a large townhouse and so this was the first time we stayed at a Disney resort. We wouldn't go back to a townhouse after this experience. Why? Well firstly location - we were between 5 and 15 minutes drive (or bus journey) from all of the Disney parks and the transport service was excellent. We did hire a car but didn't use it that much as the buses were so regular and convenient.
The resort itself was very pretty, it had a very friendly and laid back feel to it - it had all of the facilities you could need - and everything a very short walk away. We were in building 4 - we were on the corner on first floor level and you literally could walk of of the room, down the stairs and you were at the food court or swimming pool.
The food court is excellent (for quick service type food). Our favourites were the Mickey waffles with lots of syrup, the Oreo ice cream and the take out pizza.
The regular boat service to Downtown Disney is lovely, and we also hired the small watercraft for the kids - which they loved.
Highly recommended especially if you are lucky enough to get the free quick service disney dining plan with it, although we would upgrade to the full dining plan if we stayed here again (which is very likely).

Room Tip: We liked our first floor room in building number 4. Very close to everything.
