May 2017 Recreation Activities and Movie Schedules

Unread post by The Sassagoula Sentinel » April 27th, 2017, 12:53 pm

The May 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 currently suspended due to local dry conditions and fire hazards, and the Movies Under the Stars will be screened at 8:30pm on Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday at Riverside, but only on Friday & Saturday at French Quarter. There are no movies scheduled at either resort for Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday.

The recreation activities at Riverside will be similar to those presented for the last year or two, but French Quarter sees some changes this month:
  • Sunday 8am: “Beignet Dash” Fun Run — a quick early morning dash around the resort, finished with a tasty beignet (payment required)
  • Monday & Tuesday, 6:30pm—8:30pm: Doubloon Lagoon Glow Party — Come glow with the flow at the Doubloon Lagoon Glow Party
  • Wednesday 7pm—9pm: Family Game Night — Join us in Scat Cat’s Lounge for a night filled with games and fun for the whole family
  • Thursday 8pm—10pm: Mardi Gras Musical Mixer — Bebop on down to Scat Cat’s Lounge for a night filled with your favorite musical activities
  • Friday & Saturday 8:30pm: Movies Under the Stars (Moana or Finding Nemo this month)
  • Arts & Crafts Activities or Mickey Tie-Dye T-shirt decoration presented daily (payment required) but otherwise there is a generally reduced selection of afternoon poolside activities
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.
