    Disney's Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter is inspired by the romance and pageantry of the historic French Quarter in New Orleans where every day is a celebration. Step through a wrought-iron portal into an alluring world of delicious Cajun food, jazz music and dazzling parades.

    Stroll cobblestone walkways and gaze down from balconies with delicate railings as you listen to the smooth jazz backdrop and breathe in the sweet smell of magnolia blossoms in the air. As you pass by the ornate street signs, antique gas lampposts and fountains, you may just feel like you've been transported to The Big Easy.

    Pool and recreation

    The Doubloon Lagoon pool at Port Orleans French Quarter is a lively and fun swimming area covering 8,500 square feet with a fabulously themed slide in which you emerge from the sea serpent’s mouth and slide 51ft down its tongue. Dotted around the pool are comical Mardi Gras characters, many of which include water features and sprays. Sun beds are located around the pool area. Mardi Grogs is the pool bar, located next to the pool and behind this is a hot tub.
    Poolside activities are organised daily, weather permitting.
    Official opening hours: 7am until midnight. Lifeguard hours vary by season.

    Any photos and anything you think would be helpful to others. If you could take a photo of all the menus above the food court hatches that would be great thank you
