Ornate, Big Easy–style row houses with wrought-iron balconies cluster around magnolia- and oak-shaded squares in this relatively quiet resort, which appeals to couples more than families. Lamp-lighted sidewalks are named for French Quarter thoroughfares, and the rooms are decorated in Mardi Gras colors. The food court serves Crescent City specialties such as jambalaya and beignets, and to give it even more New Orleans flavor, Mardi Gras parade-float props are scattered around and there's an intimate jazz club on property.

My family and I just returned from a week at the French Quarter and we can't wait to return. The size of the hotel is perfect by Disney standards. We were in building 6 and were only a short walk from the pool and the restaurant. The pool is outstanding. The food is not gourmet but it is good. Portions are large. Two can often share one entree. The hotel is in close proximity to all Disney parks. Staff are kind and responsive. We researched
extensively before choosing the French Quarter and we were glad we did. It is hard to believe that there are hotels at Disney that charge twice as much. Great Value!

I love looking at the other resorts on WDW property, but I always stay at the French Quarter, for a lot of reasons. Rooms are as well maintained as those of the deluxe resorts (even better after a recent refurbishment), room size is decent, it has a great pool, both boat and bus service to downtown disney, and most importantly - its the smallest of the spread out resorts, so it tends to be a lot quieter. Food court is typical for disney - though
the bakery may be a cut above. Grounds are pretty and well maintained. Unless you're looking for luxury, an indoor hotel instead of a resort complex, or the cheapest room on the property, its a good buy.
