    How long does it take to walk between the Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside so we can use the Ol' Man Island pool while the Doubloon pool is closed for maintenance?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    The walk from the lobby building of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter to the Ol’ Man Island pool at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is about a 1/2 mile walk (a little less than 1 km). It should not take you more than 12-15 minutes as you stroll alongside the Sassagoula River. I did stay recently at Port Orleans - Riverside, and the pool has a fun atmosphere that you are sure to enjoy!

    BONUS TIP #1

    A lot of guests at Port Orleans don’t know that they can enjoy a boat ride to Disney Springs from their resort. I love this leisurely way to sail off for some shopping or perhaps dinner. The ride is both scenic and relaxing, and the convenience of being dropped off amid this shopping, entertainment, and retail hub is fantastic. It is a definite perk, knowing you are just a quick cruise away from so much to see and do.

    BONUS TIP #2
    For a morning treat, you might want to try the beignets at the Scat Cat's Club - Café. Open from 7 am to 11 am, this venue normally serves as a bar at night, but during the morning hours sells coffee and the powdered pockets of sweet goodness that are inspired by New Orleans. 

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
