    I know the pool at French quarter is closed for renovations but are the hot tubs still open?

    Hi there, Susan!

    Thanks for testing the waters here at planDisney with your question! With your magical vacation less than two weeks away, I'm sure you are simply brimming with excitement.  

    I'm so glad that you are planning to stay at Port Orleans - French Quarter! I consider it one of the best little gems at Walt Disney World Resort. I love how compact the resort is, and the theming makes me feel as if I have been dropped into an intimate enclave in one of my favorite cities. Depending on your departure date, you just might be able to witness some of the resort's Mardi Gras celebrations during your vacation. How fun!

    I understand that it can be disappointing to have a pool closure occurring during your stay, and unfortunately, I just confirmed with a Cast Member that the hot tub is undergoing maintenance and will be inaccessible along with the entire Doubloon Lagoon area. While I'm sure this is not what you were hoping to hear, I am happy to share that guests at Port Orleans - French Quarter have access to all six of the pools at neighboring Port Orleans - Riverside, as well as the resort's hot tub. The scenic, half-mile walk between the two should take no more than ten to fifteen minutes.

    Although you will not be able to access Doubloon Lagoon during your stay, I encourage you to still immerse yourself in the theming of the resort by enjoying any of the available dining options where the pixie dust is flying and so is the powdered sugar!

    I hope this was helpful, Susan, and that you have a magical vacation. Feel free to drop back by with any additional questions that arise!

    Cheers to 2024,
