“Doubloon Lagoon”

Discover the Port Orleans Backstory...
The Mardi Gras inspired “Doubloon Lagoon” pool at Port Orleans French Quarter is a lively and fun swimming area with clam shell water jets and a fabulously themed slide in which you emerge from “Scales” the sea serpent’s mouth and slide down its pink tongue into the pool. Sitting atop Scales’ head is a colourful likeness of King Neptune and situated around the pool are comical Mardi Gras characters, many of which include water features and sprays.

There is an adjoining shallow children’s pool and sun beds are located around the poolside area. A short distance away from the main pool you’ll find a jacuzzi hot tub and a welcoming pool bar called Mardi Grogs for the adult aprés-swim time.

Poolside activities are organised daily, weather permitting. A full schedule is posted at the resort and a printed copy should be also provided in your welcome pack — or for this month’s details, please see the Recreation Activities Schedule page.

Mardi Grogs Pool Bar

Other Facilities

Port Orleans French Quarter has one Laundry Room (the Laundry on the Levee) located near to the Mardi Grogs pool bar with guest-operated washing and drying facilities — your laundry can be taking care of itself while you take a refreshing dip in the pool or have a drink at the bar. There are currently 16 washers and 24 dryers available. Note: as from April 2013, the machines at French Quarter now ONLY accept credit/debit cards — you cannot use cash, nor can you pay using a Magic Band. The cost is $2.50 per washing load and another $2.50 for drying (the price increased from $2.00 per load on 28 April 2015).

The new machines are now also internet connected. Yes, really! You can check on the current status of any of the washers and driers at Port Orleans via the website www.laundryview.com/disneyworld/ using either a computer or a mobile device, which allows you check for available machines and also to see when your own load has finished.

Also near the pool bar is the jacuzzi hot tub and a children’s play area.
