Mickey-Shaped Beignets have been a signature Disneyland treat for ages. And while Disney World’s Port Orleans Resort — French Quarter has long served Beignets, they’ve always been of the more traditional pillow shape. But all that has changed TODAY…
Because they’ve FINALLY LANDED IN DISNEY WORLD!
Yep! Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory is now serving up Mickey-shaped Beignets!
Let’s check out what’s changed and what hasn’t. First things first: obviously, the Beignets now have Ears like our favorite Mouse .
But the abundant powdered sugar and golden-fried dough are the same.
Inside, though, we noticed a change in the consistency. Where previously the Beignets were hollow, our Mickey-shaped Beignets were much thicker, and almost donut-like.
That texture transitions into the taste, because these Beignets taste more like a donut. A very freshly made, yummy donut, mind you. But they aren’t airy and fluffy like before.
At least, that’s how it was with our batch today… as a brand new item, it’s possible they could be working out batch variances in the kitchen. I guess that means we’ll have to come back soon for more to find out for sure .
Beignets are still served in your choice of three or six, but the prices have increased: $4.49 for 3 (previously $3.99) and $6.99 for 6 (from $5.49).
And guests with the Disney Dining Plan should note that the batch of 6 is no longer snack credit eligible (though the batch of 3 is). And Dipping Sauces are still up for grabs to add on in Caramel, Strawberry, or Chicory Coffee Ganache.
Once the menu switches over to lunch, you can still grab a Beignet Sundae…
But now it’s a Mickey-Shaped Beignet Sundae!
Three Mickey-shaped Beignets are topped with your choice of ice cream and sauce (vanilla ice cream with caramel for us!).
And most importantly, you can still enjoy eating your Beignets in the lovely Louisiana atmosphere!
So, what do you think of the change? Are you excited for your Port Orleans Beignets to be sporting Mickey’s ears?
