    My family, dh, my mom, 4yr ds, and 4mo dd are going to WDW in Oct. We are staying at POR can you recommend a building to request convient to the main pools? We will have our own car. Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer!

         Port Orleans is my favorite Moderate Resort!  You didn't mention if you were staying in the Riverside or French Quarter section, so I will give you building selections for both.  The Riverside area is divided into two distinct areas, Alligator Bayou and Magnolia Bend.  Magnolia Bend features sprawling, plantation themed buildings and the Magnolia Terrace building is the closest area to the main pool and food court area.  Alligator Bayou is more rustic feeling and Lodge 14 is very close to all of the action.  Over on the French Quarter side, Building 5 is the most convenient, followed by Building 2.  Did you know that there is an entire website dedicated to the Port Orleans Resorts?  Check out for tons of great info and pictures! 

         While not always the most convenient, driving yourself is almost always the quickest way to get anywhere on property.  If you would like to compare the times and routes of Disney transportation versus driving, the Transportation Wizard found on will compute the best way to get absolutely anywhere in the "World."  Have a fabulous trip!!!

    Much pixie dust,
