Just in time for warm summer days, there’s a new space at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter that’s just for little ones who like to splash around and stay cool.

Decked out in the bold hues of Mardi Gras gold, purple and green, this new aquatic play area lets guests 48 inches and under enjoy water slides that are just their size, play with fun water cannons, and splish-splash among fountains.

The new area is located next to the whimsical Doubloon Lagoon pool, so you and your little ones can easily go back and forth between these two water-filled spots while staying at this resort.

  • my girls are 6 years apart..and we enjoyed the splash area at CB in July. My dd7 has been hoping to NOT grow now that shes hit 48 inches so she can play here with her sister over spring break. She can’t swim well, and loves to play with her sister–plus if its just me at pool time, she cant go over to the main pool by herself–so either she or her sister misses out if she grows an inch in the next 6 months. 🙁 looks great though.

  • Now I understand why it’s so hard this year to choose the French Quarter as an options. We stayed there last year it and enjoyed it.

    We postponed our April trip to September hoping we can make it to the French Quarter.

  • French Quarter is one of my favorite resorts, but it gets a bad rep from Disney’s travel brochures, since those Orleans-square buildings looked too “grownup” for parents with kids, and all marketing ever showed in the videos was the sea-serpent waterslide.
    But if a little more pool-area to sell will get more parents to discover the “other” resort next to Riverside, I’m fine with that.

  • Bummer…we are going next month and were going to stay there, but with four- and one-year-olds, I didn’t think it was going to be themed enough for them. Looks awesome, though!
