    How close is the French Quarter to the Riverside? Traveling with a 8yr. and 3 yr old and didn't know if the walk would be to much for them, thanks.

    I don't know how far--technically--it is, Kristi.  I can tell you, though, that my family has made the trip by foot on more than one occasion.  It's definitely a lengthy walk, maybe fifteen to twenty minutes at a stroll of a pace.  In spite of the distance, the walk is a lovely one.  The path lines up right alongside the Sassagoula River.  Additionally, the grounds are gorgeously landscaped with lush grasses and towering trees.  Your best bet would be to bring along a stroller for your three-year-old, allowing him or her a ride when those little feetsies tire out.  I do encourage you to make the trip, though; it's a relaxing way to experience a little bit of understated family fun on property.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
