Monthly Recreational Activities Schedules
If you don’t feel like a day at the theme parks there’s still plenty to do right on your own doorstep at the Port Orleans resorts. Both resorts provide various poolside activities, evening campfires and outdoor Disney movie screenings — all of which are complimentary and available every day of the year.
Outdoor activities are subject to change, and obviously can be cancelled or moved due to poor weather, but the current schedules should be posted in the resort lobbies and also provided in printed form in your welcome pack. For more details of other resort activities, please see our main Recreation page.
Breaking News: In what appears to be a massively short-sighted and very disappointing move, as from 2 March 2014 Disney has seen fit to permanently close the Port Orleans Riverside Levee boat rental facility. No reason has yet been given, but it removes one of the key benefits for guests booking at Port Orleans over a Value resort, and a great many people have already expressed their dissatisfaction at this move.
Very Bad Show, Disney — you are meant to be all about “plussing” your parks and resorts, not “minussing” them.

Port Orleans Recreational Activities for March 2014
The evening campfires commence at 6pm in March, and the Movies Under the Stars will be screened at 8pm. On Sunday 2 March, the Oscars ceremony will be screened live at the Riverside Lobby Courtyard instead of the regular movie.
On Tuesday 4 March, Port Orleans will feature its annual Mardi Gras celebrations, including a mini-parade around the resort organised by the cast members at approx. 2pm.
Note: French Quarter’s “Doubloon Lagoon” pool will reopen on 4 March after its seven-week refurbishment.
