    I am staying at Port Orleans French Quarter in July and I know all rooms are different. Are there any standard view rooms that are better than others, and if so, what makes them better?

    Hi, Christina!

    My family stays all over Disney property, but Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter is the resort we consider our "home away from home!" I hope your family enjoys this property as much as my family does.

    When staying in a standard view room, my choice is Building 4, with a first floor room. This puts you very near the bus depot as well as the food court. You are just steps away from middle of it all! Between Buildings 4 and 5 is a large grassy courtyard area where my kids love to toss around a football by day, and watch movies by night (see schedule for movie days and times).

    If you prefer a standard room that is a bit quieter, you might enjoy Buildings 1 or 7 on an upper level floor. These buildings are a bit more remote so you will not have as much foot traffic. Even in these buildings, you are just about a 5-7 minute walk to the main resort areas.

    Enjoy your stay at Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter. Make sure to try the made-to-order beignets at the Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory. For a fun time, take a boat ride to Disney Springs or take a stroll down to sister resort Riverside to rent bikes. With so much to do, make sure to plan some "resort time" to take it all in.
