March 2017 Recreation Activities and Movie Schedules

Unread post by The Sassagoula Sentinel » March 1st, 2017, 4:56 pm

The March 2017 Recreation Activities and Movie Schedules for Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter are now available. See the main Recreation Activities Schedules page for full-size printable PDF versions.

The main feature swimming pool operating hours are currently 10am—9pm. These times are enforced and the feature pools are gated and locked when there are no lifeguards on duty, however the five Riverside quiet pools are generally available at any time (within reason). The evening campfires are scheduled for 5:30pm—6:30pm, and the Movies Under the Stars will be screened at 7:30pm, with both activities occurring on alternating days at the two resorts — Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday at Riverside, and Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday at French Quarter.

At 1pm daily there will be Arts & Crafts Activities, with Mickey Tie-Dye T-shirt decoration occurring on select days as shown on the schedules (payment required for these activities). See Resort Lobby signage or a Recreation Cast Member for details.


Live Evening Entertainment

No visit to Port Orleans Riverside would be complete without spending an evening in the company of the legendary “Ye Haa” Bob Jackson at the River Roost Lounge, playing 8:30pm—midnight four nights a week (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday).

Port Orleans French Quarter’s Scat Cat’s Club does not currently have official resident musicians, but filling the gap admirably are Jason Thomas and Billy Varnes, two members of the fabulous Off Kilter rock band which used to perform in Epcot’s Canada pavilion. Occasionally when one of the boys is not available, Greg Hayworth (from Mulch, Sweat & Shears) will sit in. The dates are only announced a month or so in advance (generally most Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays) but if you happen to be around for any of their evenings (8:30pm—11pm) do yourself a favour and pop along, they are highly recommended.

Jason & Billy at Scat Cat’s: March 4, 5, 6, 7*, 11*, 12, 13, 14*, 18, 19, 20, 21*, 25, 26, 27* & 28. * Jason will be playing with Greg Hayworth on March 7, 14, 21 & 27, and on March 11 there will be a solo show from John Stevens.

Nothing yet I'm afraid. There have been some changes in staff in the Recreation department and I think things are still settling down, and I'm guessing there are more pressing matters than emailing documents to me. :)
