It’s beignet time (all the time, but we digress)! You know we’re always on top of the seasonal, temporary flavors at Disneyland Resort’s Mint Julep Bar, and right now, it’s strawberry season!
So far, we’ve shown you all sorts of snack and Counter Service goodies themed to the Pixar celebration which spans both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. But today, we’re bringing you to this beloved Table Service restaurant currently serving — among their already-famous dishes — a 3-course Prix Fixe menu created specifically for the Fest.

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.
Cafe Orleans is a pretty classy joint. Think stained glass and elegant decor (by theme park standards). It all starts outside. [Read more…]
Have you heard? The nighttime spectacular Fantasmic! returns to Disneyland on July 17th! And there will be plenty of special snacks on hand to celebrate the occasion.
Look around New Orleans Square, Frontierland, and Critter Country for the following treats.
Churros, Churros everywhere! Find the following flavors out and about… the Churro Cart in Critter Country will serve S’mores Churros (a graham cracker churro with chocolate and marshmallow dipping sauce), and the Churro Carts in Frontierland and New Orleans Square will offer Sour Watermelon Churros.
Disneyland is keeping a secret that you’ve GOT to know about!
Disneyland is undergoing lots of changes and improvements these days. Y’all know that the Summer of Heroes is underway until September 1o, and we’ve had lots of chances to try the yummy heroes-themed eats. Oh, and Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout opened, so there’s that.
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…
Nope! We’re having BEIGNETS!!
But on a recent trip to Disneyland, I decided to finally try these classic eats as they come quick-serve!
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.
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!
