March 2019 Recreation Activities and Movie Schedules, including Mardi Gras

Posted Thursday 28th February 2019, 3:25pm (EST) by The Sassagoula Sentinel

The March 2019 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—8pm, outside of which the pools and hot tubs are gated and locked as there are no lifeguards on duty. This will be changing to 9am—11pm from 10 March 2019. The five Riverside leisure (quiet) pools are officially listed as 9am—10pm but they are not locked and are generally available at any time within reason.

Movies Under the Stars will be screened at 8:30pm six nights a week at Riverside (except Tuesdays), and on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at French Quarter. Note: the Riverside movie screenings are now shown on the pool deck area near to building 95 (between Parterre Place and Oak Manor).

Evening Campfire Activities will take place from 6:30pm-7:30pm on the same nights as the movies at French Quarter, and every night at Riverside. You can roast marshmallows for free, or you can optionally purchase full s’mores kits, all in the warm glow of a night-time campfire.

Mardi Gras is on Tuesday 5th of March this year and the theme for the annual cast member Pargo Parade will be “Magical Lands of Disney”. The parade begins at 10am near to Riverside building 80 (Acadian House) and will finish at around 11am at the French Quarter Lobby Courtyard near building 6.

There will also be a “Magical Mardi Gras” courtyard party at French Quarter for the whole family from 6pm—9pm. The celebrations will include a DJ, dancing, character meet and greets, complimentary face painting, a King Cake eating contest, a Decorate Your Own Mask craft event ($), themed Name Works Keepsake Art ($), Balocoloc Venetian Masks available for purchase, giveaways, and more!

There will be no Cajan Campfire in the evening due to the other celebrations taking place, but the Movie Under the Stars at 9pm will of course be Disney’s New Orleans themed The Princess and the Frog.

All events are weather permitting, and the evening celebration will be moved indoors to the lobby area if necessary.

Live Evening Entertainment

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. You can normally find them playing at Scat Cat's on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays from 8:30pm until 11pm, so if you happen to be around for one of their evenings why not do yourself a favour and pop along, they are highly recommended.

Offer includes Riverside, but not French Quarter, and is valid for arrival dates from 5 July 2019 until 30 September 2019. You must make your booking by 10 February 2019, and expect demand to be high for a limited number of available rooms, so be flexible with your dates and room your category choices.

For the Moderate resorts the package included is the Quick Service Dining Plan but you can upgrade to the Standard Dining Plan for $22.99/night for adults / $4.20/night for kids, or to the Deluxe Dining Plan for $63.75/night for adults / $19.70/night for kids.

Get up to 25% off a room-only booking for most check-in dates from 28 April 2019 until 30 September 2019. You can also add tickets (at regular list price) to create a package booking. It is possible to stay beyond the end date but only the dates within the offer period will be discounted.

Valid for both Riverside and French Quarter, but expect availability to be limited so be flexible with your dates and room your category choices.

For Moderate resort rooms the discount varies between 10% and 25% based on your dates and chosen room type. The best deals are for arrivals after 28 May (which must be booked by 24 March), but there are smaller discounts available during the earlier part of the offer (book these up to 27 May).
