Has Disney opened up the rest of Port Orleans yet? I know that they were starting to open it up building by building, and that they were accepting reservations again:animwink:

When I went passed there during December it was not gate off. It was just very dark. There was a light on in the main building though, which makes me think they were doing some changes to the resort. The gates of the resort though were wide open, the sign wasn't lit up though.

Yeah? I hope they didn't do too much. I liked it. I know the restaurant that was there closed right after we had ate there on our vacation in August of 2000. Maybe they re-did that too. :D

It was closed down due to slowing tourism. However, during this "slump" Disney took the opportunity to give the resort a slight rehab. I can't remember off the top of my head exactly all that was done...

YOu may want to double check your reservations. We were talking about the re opening in a meeting today, and we were told that they werent going to re-open till mid to late july.

We were also told that it will be re opened in sections. 2 buildings at a time, spaced out over about a 4 -6 month period.

I hope for you that they made a mistake in todays meet, and should have said june instead of July.

Either way...have a great time!!!!!!!!!!

We have been told on both unofficial, and official levels in Transportation that French Quarter will be opening on May 31st. Whether it's going to be in sections like you described, that I don't know...
