    I am staying at the Port Orleans French Quarter from June 16 to June 21st. Is there a fitness center/gym?? My grandfather and I are planning on going to the gym if there is one but if not, is there like a walking trail, bike rentals etc??

    Hi Jen, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Your Walt Disney World summer vacation is coming up so soon – you must be beyond excited!

    Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts are absolutely stunning – the landscaping and theming at both French Quarter and Riverside are simply magical. While there isn’t a Fitness Center located at either resort, I know you and your grandfather are going to have the best time exploring the resorts on their lovely paved trails and taking advantage of the many recreation amenities found there.

    My family took full advantage of the beautiful one-mile trail located beside the Sassagoula River. Not only will you encounter families strolling along the path, you’ll also find runners and Guests riding bikes. Bike rentals can be found at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter and at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside. You may want to inquire at the front desk about yoga or other fitness activities during your stay; there was yoga on the lawn at Riverside during my recent visit.

    Jen, one of my Disney bucket list items is the Beignet Fun Run, which is a 1.5-mile run held most Sundays at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter. Cross the finish line and receive one of the resort’s legendary beignets! You can register in advance by calling (407) WDW-PLAY or at your resort.

    Don’t forget to stay hydrated in that Florida heat, and have so much fun exploring the resort with your grandfather. Just thinking about the special memories you’ll be making together makes my family-loving heart so happy.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
