    My family will be going to WDW for the first time in October. We are booked at Port Orleans- French Quarter. We will be there a full week with 5 park days. What room requests are recommended in regards to location or theming? I can’t tell!

    Howdy Shelly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are very thankful that you are sharing your question with us!  I am so excited for you!  I know you and your family are counting down the months to experience your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter is a beautiful resort!  This is an excellent option for your first experience at the Walt Disney World Resort!  The lush landscaping, cobblestone streets, and wrought-iron balconies will transport you to the historic New Orleans French Quarter.  Since you are coming as a family and it looks like you will have a couple of days to enjoy the pool, I would recommend the Pool View Rooms.  These rooms will allow you easy access to the beautifully themed pool, and you will be able to enjoy Mardi Grogs.  At Mardi Grogs, you can grab a drink or a snack.  With the Pool View Rooms, all of these amenities are just steps away from your room!

    Since this is your first time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, I know you are ready to make lots of memories!  To capture all of your memories and bring them home with you, I highly recommend adding Memory Maker to your vacation package.  With Memory Maker, you can take an unlimited amount of photos at one great price, and the best part is “Everyone is in the Photo”!

    Your vacation will be here before you know it!  To stay up-to-date on all the new and exciting things happening this year, check out the Disney Parks Blog.  Also, if you have any more questions while you are planning, please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are always here to help you!

    See Ya Real Soon Shelly,
