We're staying at the French Quarter in 3 weeks!!! We have never stayed in Disney - and we can't wait!


I am trying to read all the posts to learn what I can before we go.

I had a few questions -

Is the outdoor movie every night? Does anyone know the time of the movie?

Is the campfire every nite also? What time is that? and how much are the s'more kits? Are they disney themed kits? or just plain?

Thanks so much!!!!!!

Go back to page 170, post 2543. That is the July schedule and it will give you a very good idea of what to expect in three weeks (I assume you will be going in August). Andre will post the August info a few days before the first of the month (well, at least that is what he usually does).

Have a wonderful trip!

Tom Casey becomes Port Orleans French Quarter's new resident musician

Now that the lobby refurbishment at Port Orleans French Quarter is complete, entertainment offerings at Scat Cat’s Lounge will resume on Friday, July 19.

Musician Tom Casey will join Scat Cat’s Lounge, performing a dynamic blend of piano and jazz vocals. Tom has previously performed at a variety of venues across the Walt Disney World Resort, including providing vacation cover for French Quarter's previous resident musician, Elliot Dyson.

Performances will take place Friday through Monday at 8:30pm, 9:30pm and 10:30pm. There are no performances scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.

My TA informed me to not count on PORFQ for FD that no rooms are available as they all went to the pin group.

Is this for real?

No idea, we don't even know for sure whether there will be any extra free dining dates announced for this year at all, let alone the details.

POFQ, being a smaller and very popular resort, often doesn't get as many (or as deep) discounts as other resorts though. Remember that these sort of offers are PURELY to help Disney clear room inventory that is not currently selling well, it's nothing to do with them owing guests anything.

If you already have a room booked, would there be any problem to applying free dining to your ressie?

If an offer comes up for the same resort, sure you can do that. You might need to change room category though, as they will sometimes link offers to specific booking categories only.

Any updates on the refrigerator situation? Anyone who's there now or just got back, did you have one in your room? Just haven't heard anything lately and wondering how the switch-out is going.

One more movie question - do you need to bring a blanket to sit on? or can we use towels from the hotel?

Thanks! We're getting excited!

I have had a standard room booked at POFQ for quite some time. Got a PIN a month ago, maybe more now, and there was NOTHING at POFQ for me to change too. I could have gone to POR or another resort, but didn't want too....
