Monthly Recreational Activities and Entertainment Schedule

Movie Night at Port Orleans French Quarter

Movie Night at Port Orleans French Quarter

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).

The latest schedules should be posted around the resort from the start of each month, 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.

Outdoor activities are subject to change, and obviously can be cancelled or moved indoors due to inclement weather. Pool hours and lifeguard availability varies seasonally by pool, and is also subject to change.

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.

 

Evening Live Musical 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.
