    Are the movies in the rooms at the Port Orleans French Quarter free or do you have to pay for them?

    Hi Joan,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. I just love Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts, and it sounds like you’ll be enjoying the beautiful grounds and delicious treats there so very soon!

    Joan, in my experience, the in-room TV at your resort will feature some great informational channels telling you park hours and fun ideas for things to do, and then an assortment of regular TV channels. You might find a movie showing on TV, but I don’t believe there is an on-demand movie option on those TVs. Please check with your friendly front desk Cast Members when you arrive just to be sure.

    I recently stayed at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, and one night my family enjoyed Movies Under the Stars out on the lawn. We watched Coco, and it was absolutely magical to be at Walt Disney World, under the stars, enjoying a movie together. We got some of French Quarter’s famous beignets to enjoy with the movie, which I highly recommend. The resort will have the movie schedule posted in various spots, and you should receive a recreation schedule in your room, so you will be able to choose your favorite option. These movies are complimentary for resort Guests and part of the fantastic recreation line-up put together by the Cast Members.

    One last tip: if you’re a movie fan, be sure you don’t miss the lovely Disney Movie Magic show that appears at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Clips and music from your favorite Disney movies old and new are projected onto Grauman’s Chinese Theater, and it’s a spectacular and moving sight – I tear up every time!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
