Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort

Our vacation started off with a night at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter. The French Quarter is Disney’s smallest moderate resort, and I just love the atmosphere. The theme is Mardi Gras!

The Sea Serpent’s name is Scales. There’s nothing scary about that guy!

Sassagoula Floatworks is the quick service restaurant at the French Quarter. Many of the props here are authentic Mardi Gras props, and come directly from storage warehouses in New Orleans.

You can’t go to the French Quarter without having some Beignets. Yummy!

We didn’t go into the parks, we just headed over to Downtown Disney and ate dinner at the Rainforest Café. Is there anywhere else? Not according to my husband.

We headed right back to the resort after dinner. I tried to get the hubby to go for a balloon ride, but once again, he refused. He doesn’t like heights.

We got up super early in the morning so we could stop by Downtown Disney again, and grab some Starbucks, before heading out to the airport.

It was the final day of the World Cup and I was routing for Germany! After Spain and the USA lost, Germany was my final hope.

Watching the World Cup on the Plane

How many people get to say they watched the World Cup from 30,000 feet? It was definitely a unique experience. We were able to see most of the game on the plane, and after we landed, we got to see the final moments in the Austin terminal with everyone else. Finally, one of my teams won! Yes!

We had a short layover before we headed off again to Long Beach. I swear they make things like Armadillo Poo just for suckers like me. It’s super cute right? I wanted to buy it, but I don’t even like Taffy. Sheesh…

We were off again in no time.

How’s that for well placed advertising?

And the final destination? Disneyland! After getting settled into the hotel, I wanted to rush over to Downtown Disney. I wanted to do Downtown Disney in Orlando and Anaheim on the same day. Yes, I’m a dork. How many people get to say they’ve been able to do that? I know there’s probably a good number, but in the scheme of things, I’m sure it’s pretty rare. I thought about doing Magic Kingdom and Disneyland, but due to our flight schedule, that would have been too crazy to be enjoyable.

I pulled it off! I can cross that one off my Disney Bucket List.
