    I am about to book at resort trip during late November of this year. We will be visiting 2 parks before we depart on a Disney Cruise. What is the best place to stay (moderately priced) with regards to using the transportation system?

    Hi Becky!


    Congratulations on your Disney Surf and Turf Vacation! You are absolutely going to love it!


    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter (POFQ) is an absolute gem in the moderately priced resort category. Featuring the exceptionally themed pool Doubloon Lagoon, POFQ consists of seven three-story guest-room buildings adjacent to the Sassagoula River. Most guest-rooms in POFQ are within easy walking distance of the resort's main facilities. However, Buildings 2 & 5 are the closest to Doubloon Lagoon, making it an ideal location for families traveling with children. For a quiet room in these two buildings, ask for the second or third floor. Take a look at POFQ map. Buildings 1, 6, and 7 are a moderate walk from the resort's main facilities. Consider booking a Water View Room. However, be very specific to request a River View Room. The best views are of the pristine river bank opposite the Sassagoula River. I would recommend Building 5 room blocks 5117-5122, 5217-5222, or 5317-5322. If you want a quieter area, and don't mind a longer walk to the resort's main facilities, then I would suggest Building 7 room blocks 7141-7148, 7241-7248, or 7341-7348. You may ask for a River View Room in any of these room blocks, but there is no guarantee your request will be met. To cover all the bases, call Resort Reservations at (407) 939-7429, contact the resort directly at (407) 934-5000, and fax your request to (407) 934-5353. Cast Members will try to accommodate you based on the resort's occupancy, and other factors, at the time of your arrival. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.


    Have a most memorable Disney Surf and Turf Vacation!
