Magical Days - Part One

FRENCH QUARTER - PORT ORLEANS
Disney World, Florida

My hubby and I just returned from a fabulous vacation in Florida. Although the heat was far beyond what we expected (95 degrees everyday with 95% humidity), we still managed to enjoy an early 10th Anniversary celebration.

We arrived on Sunday, October 4th and were shuttled to our hotel, Port Orleans, French
Quarter. It was amazing. It was balmy and beautiful and felt like paradise. The atmosphere was New Orleans Mardi Gras with a touch of French Flair. So far this was the best Disney hotel we ever visited. I did my very best to take as many photos as I could in the outrageous heat. I hope you enjoy them.

Welcome to our vacation tour....


Inside the courtyard at Port Orleans hotel, Florida









Mike happy to be on vacation!



How cool are the colors on the walls of our hotel, so sugary sweet



This was the entrance to our jacuzzi.
As beautiful as an English garden.
And the jacuzzi was heavenly.




The adorable fake lizards playing instruments on the path to the pool.





The pool view from our bedroom.
The water was warm and so refreshing.



A lovely fountain on one of the side streets leading to other rooms.



The street outside our hotel room leading to the the jacuzzi. Oh yeah!



Dusk on our street.



OMG!! Just loved the street signs....
How awesome is this "Cafe au Lait Way" sign.



... and this "Cake Walk" street sign. Too cute.



How French and Victorian chic.
This was the sign to our Gift Shop. Loved it!

We love to hear your comments, so please leave
them if you enjoyed this post.
Much more to come tomorrow!
The candy and our Trick or Treating Night at Disney World.
What a blast.
Enjoy everyone.
