    Hi- we are going to be guests at the Port Orleans Riverside resort coming up. Are guests of the Port Orleans resorts allowed to pool hop between either of the Port Orleans (Riverside & French Quarter) Resorts. Thanks in advance.

    Hello, Molly! Thank you for visiting planDisney with your Disney vacation planning question!

    I have been visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for over 30 years and my first visits were always spent at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort or Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, but back then it was called Disney’s Dixie Landings Resort. Since Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter are connected by the Sassagoula River, you can enjoy a nice walk on the path to explore whichever resort you are not staying in. I highly suggest you start your morning by walking to the French Quarter with your Resort Refillable Mug to grab a fresh cup of coffee and Mickey-shaped beignet!

    As a Guest at Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside or French Quarter, you can normally enjoy either pool, however, the website for Disney’s Port Orleans – French Quarter currently states that the Doubloon Lagoon pool will be closed through April 2024 for routine maintenance.

    If you're looking for something a little more than the old-fashioned swimmin’ hole and sawmill slide at Port Orleans – Riverside, located on Ol’ Man Island with Muddy Rivers (the Gata-Melon Juice is amazing!), I suggest spending some time at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. Summit Plummet is one of the fastest free-fall body slides in the world and the Polar Pub offers a Pina CoLAVA’s that is perfect on a hot and sunny Florida day!

    I hope this answers your question, Molly. If you have any other questions about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, please feel free to swing by again!
