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: Mickey Mouse Beignets at Disneyland’s Mint Julep Bar

Guess where WE’RE going today!!!! Yep — you and I are headed to Disneyland’s Mint Julep Bar in beautiful New Orleans Square! But we’re not having Mint Juleps…

Mint Julep Bar in Disneyland's New Orleans Square

Nope! We’re having BEIGNETS!!

Disneyland Resort offers beignets at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express, and I’m head over heels for the Mickey-shaped beignets that they serve as a dessert offering at Cafe Orleans.

But on a recent trip to Disneyland, I decided to finally try these classic eats as they come quick-serve!

Atmosphere

You’ll find the Mint Julep Bar tucked into one end of the courtyard that serves as seating space for the French Market, the neighboring counter service spout. It’s a handy stop if you’re just after a snack or drink, versus a full meal.

Seating Shared by French Market and the Mint Julep Bar

Since it shares seating with the French Market, you can also take advantage of that restaurant’s live musical entertainment if you time your visit just right. But let’s take a look at the eats first!

While it’s called the Mint Julep Bar for the iconic bright green non-alcoholic drink they serve, the Mickey-shaped Beignets take center stage [Read more…]
