Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter & Riverside Resorts

Resort in Walt Disney World

Lush gardens and a jubilant Mardi Gras motif blend in an effort to create a Louisiana feel to these sister resorts. Though the result sometimes falls flat and the simple rooms feel dated, the resort is a mecca for activities and includes a sea-serpent water slide, boat rental, horse-drawn-carriage rides and evening s'mores.

This is one of the biggest resorts at Disney; a boat connects the two properties, or it's a 15-minute walk.
