And this time we’re at the Resort’s indoor lounge, Scat Cat’s Club!

Just in case you missed it, we were just at this lovely Resort last week when the Beignets — a staple at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory — took on their new Mickey-Shape!

And our trip today focuses around Beignets again… but of a different variety! New on the menu at the jazz-inspired Scat Cat’s Club are BOOZY BEIGNETS!

Mickey Beignets Now Available in Disney World!

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…

Beignets for Breakfast!!!

Beignets for Breakfast!!!

Now, even though breakfast is called the most important meal of the day, the truth is that — in Disney World — the breakfast options don’t always provide the most bang for your buck, especially if you’re considering using a Counter Service meal credit from the Disney Dining Plan. But there are some brilliant ways to use your snack credits for breakfast at Disney World! And even if you aren’t using the Disney Dining Plan, lots of these make terrific options even if you’re paying out of pocket. So join us for breakfast… in Disney World! [Read more…]

Review: NEW Mardi Gras Beignets at Mint Julep Bar in Disneyland

The Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square in Disneyland has a limited menu, and they do it so well. The Mint Juleps are refreshing (and underwent a makeover in 2017!), and the Beignets? Y’all. Yum.

Review: My Favorite Food in Disneyland

OK, for serious. I’m just going to say it. This is the BEST food in Disneyland. Believe me, Napa Rose is incredible, Steakhouse 55 slays, and Club 33 is amazing. I’ve been to all three many times. But if I only have one meal to eat in Disneyland, it’s going to be this one.

We all know that Disney restaurants can be maddeningly inconsistent, but this one? Always good. And these particular menu items are home-runs every single time. It’s a good day for a visit to Cafe Orleans in Disneyland, don’t you think?

Located in New Orleans Square, this casual Table Service restaurant serves consistently killer NOLA French Quarter-inspired fare with a little bonus panache.

New Orleans Square, for those who haven’t been, is so fun. It’s always Mardi Gras here, people! Big masks, oversized beads, and beautiful architectural details make this place a magnet for visitors to the Happiest Place on Earth.

And Cafe Orleans is right in the heart of things.

Atmosphere

Cafe Orleans is a pretty classy joint. Think stained glass and elegant decor (by theme park standards). It all starts outside. [Read more…]

Review: Pumpkin Spice Beignets at Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory

Oh. You thought we were done trying ALL the Pumpkin Spice around Disney World?

Nope, not yet!

We’ve tracked down everything from Pumpkin Spice Shakes (made with ice cream or gelato) to the annual return of Pumpkin Fudge around the parks. But I may have found my very favorite Pumpkin Spice snack yet at Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory in Port Orleans Resort — French Quarter, where they’re serving up PUMPKIN SPICE BEIGNETS.

WOOT!!!

Now, you won’t find Pumpkin Spice Beignets listed as an option on the menu alongside the regular French Quarter Beignets.

And the traditional (non-Spiced) Beignets are still available as well. [Read more…]

New DFB Video: Beignets (and the Beignet Gelato Sundae!) at Port Orleans Resort, French Quarter!

Happy Funday Monday! Today, we thought we’d take a closer look at one of our favorite Disney Resort Snacks in our latest DFB Video. So join me as we head over to the shady squares of Port Orleans French Quarter Resort.

And when we go to Port Orleans you know we aren’t leaving without snagging an order or three of their amazing Beignets!

Beignet Sundae

Beignet Sundae

Smothered in powdered sugar, these hot-from-the-fryer, melt-in-your-mouth treats are pretty amazing all by themselves. But at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory, you can also score them with Dipping Sauces. Choose from Caramel, Raspberry, or Chicory Coffee Ganache. Or don’t choose. Because ALL THE SAUCES.
