Monthly Recreational Activities and Entertainment 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 complimentary poolside activities, evening campfires and outdoor Disney movie screenings, along with a range of extra activities (some of which have a separate charge).

Outdoor activities are subject to change, and obviously can be cancelled or moved due to poor weather. The latest schedules should be posted around the resort, or check at the Front Desk (printed copies are no longer automatically issued to every guest). For more details of other resort activities, please see our main Recreation page.

Reminders: As from March 2nd 2014, the Port Orleans Riverside Levee boat rental facility was permanently closed, although Bicycle and Surrey Bike rentals are still available. Also the “Bayou Pirate Adventure” riverboat activity cruise for children was discontinued on March 30th 2017.

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).

Over at French Quarter, the new Scat Cat’s Club Lounge, located in the space that back in the nineties used to be the charming table-service restaurant Bonfamille’s Café, you can enjoy live entertainment with your cocktails three nights a week. The resident Jazz Fusion Band perform on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings beginning at 7:30 pm.


 
 

Archive of Historical Pre-COVID Recreational Activities Schedules (mostly PDF files, right-click to download)

For the past ten years, cast members from the resort’s recreation team have been kind enough to send me a quick email at the end of each month with the new recreation schedules, so I can provide this information in a timely manner for upcoming guests on the 1st of the month. Unfortunately, at the end of January 2020 I received an email saying that have been given “direction from the company” that they are no longer allowed to send out this information — even though the same sheets are given out in Welcome Packs to every arriving guest, and they even can be picked up on request at the front desk. They have said I’m more than welcome to still upload those, but sadly as I’m based in the UK, that isn’t really an option.
