Congratulations on your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! You'll absolutely love staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter (PORFQ).
There are so many fantastic activities offered throughout Disney Resort Hotels that are 100% FREE! One of my favorites is listening to African Folktales at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge (AKL). You can simply find a seat around the Arusha Rock Fire Pit Overlook and enjoy the amazing storytelling experience. If there is inclement weather, the storytelling will be held inside in the lobby around Ogun's Fire Pit. During the summer months, this activity typically takes place around 6:30 p.m. It lasts about twenty minutes.
Another amazing resort recreation offering at AKL includes Night Vision viewing of animals featuring special night vision goggles. This activity takes place nightly, weather permitting, from 9 to 11 p.m. Cast Members lead Guests from behind the Jambo House Pool to the savannah to view the animals. Looking through night vision goggles is just like you see in the movies, where everything looks green!
One of the best FREE resort recreation activities at the Walt Disney World Resort can be found at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds. Read more about Chip n' Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long HERE
You can also enjoy watching Movies Under the Stars on the giant screen at PORFQ, or participate in pool-side games and activities. Be sure to pick up a Guest Activities schedule at the front desk when you arrive. If you walk down to PORFQ's sister resort, Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, you can also grab beignets at the bakery there.
