Staying at Port Orleans French Quarter Resort

When we went to Disney World last month, we had the pleasure of staying at Port Orleans French Quarter resort. It is an onsite Disney World hotel, meaning that we were living in the Disney bubble for our whole stay and were nice and close to everything. I shared some of the reasons we wanted to stay onsite at Disney World here. Port Orleans French Quarter is a ‘moderate’ resort, and today I am sharing with you a few of my thoughts about staying there.

Our Disney World Highlights

I’ve a feeling that I’m going to find this a tricky post to write, as I know once I start I will keep thinking of more and more wonderful moments to add to the list! So, in no particular order, here are a few of our standout Disney World highlights…. The Magic Kingdom Welcome Show was just the best way to start our holiday.

I Fear I Might Burst!

I fear I might burst. We leave for Disney World in a few days time. A holiday that we have been counting down to for twelve months. Our tickets have been printed. I have a packing list in progress. I have sent over our resort room request. We’ve ordered our food for our Be Our Guest reservations. And you would not believe the amount of times I have checked and moved around our Fast Passes!

With a Disney World holiday, a lot of the fun is about the planning, preparations and countdown.

We are all thoroughly enjoying the build up to the break, and for me it’s Read more >


Things I’m Most Looking Forward To On Our Disney World Holiday

If you’re a regular reader here you may remember when I shared that we’d booked to go to Disney World next year. To me, that feels like just a few weeks ago, but it was actually six months ago now which means we have only six months now before we go. Only six months! Given how quickly that time has flown by, I know we’ll be boarding that plane before we know it! A big part of this holiday is the anticipation and planning. We have spent so many hours chatting all things Disney, watching ride videos with the kids, Read more >


Top Reasons to Stay in a Disney World Hotel

We Are Going To Walt Disney World!

I mentioned last week that we were looking into booking our Walt Disney World holiday, and yes, we are now booked up and excited! We will be going next summer and are booked to stay in one of the Disney World resorts. As I have spent a fair bit of time researching this, I thought it would be helpful to put together a few reasons that we decided to book into a Disney hotel, rather than go for another hotel or a villa. On the surface, these look to be cheaper options, but there are several perks with staying in the Read more >


Using a Bullet Journal to Plan for Disney World

There is much excitement here as we have decided that we are going to Disney World next year. So along with watching a lot of Disney vlogs, especially BrummyMummyof2’s as they’re friends of ours so the kids love seeing their pals exploring Disney, I thought I’d best start making some plans. Partly because it feels like the kind of holiday that requires some planning to get the most out of it, and partly because it’s fun to do! So I have taken to my bullet journal… I have popped two double page spreads in there dedicate to Disney planning. I Read more >
