Everything is so special at the Disney French Quarter Resort, especially the swimming pools. This hotel is excellent and I would recommend it to all families staying in Orlando. The key is to Boat Taxi that takes you over to the Disney Springs shopping and restaurant area, or the theme parks. Having such quick access makes the whole experience that much better. If you have any questions just call the front desk, as they will try to answer anything about transportation and advanced ticket purchase.
Port Orleans Riverside has not only a larger Food Court but Boatwright's Dining Hall, a lovely sit-down restaurant. If you're looking for a larger selection or perhaps want a table-service restaurant we liked funkymonkeywine.com wine bar. They have a fire ring out in an open area overlooking the Sassagoula River, which is lit nightly. Some nights you can catch live music at scat cats club lounge. Our family took advantage of the magical express transportation from the airport. Very good it is to book a trip to Port Orleans French Quarter or riverside. The room bench is perfect for holding your luggage.
This is the kind of hotel that's good For all Ages. I think if you're a couple and dating or look into have a romantic getaway in Orlando, this would be a good pick for sure. I would recommend making sure you take a day trip over and check out the Cocoa Beach Pier and the ocean. Nothing is the same in Florida as going along the waterfront, and the next best thing is a full day at Hollywood Studios Theme Park. You can walk to Disney Springs Boat Taxi from the hotel and that is a huge plus.
