Let’s take a trip down to the bayou for another roundup of What’s New at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort! Let The Good Times Roll or as they say, Laissez les bon temps rouler!
This is where we take you on a virtual walk around Disney World’s Port Orleans Resort to spot any and all of the latest food updates, construction, and merch we’ve spotted along the way!
Food Updates at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort- French Quarter
First up, we’ll be geaux-ing to the French Quarter for updates at two of its dining locations.
Let’s head to Sassagoula where we noticed they’ve renamed out their previous Bacon Cheeseburger and are now calling it the Applewood Smoked Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger (fancy, fancy!). If you’re trying to resist the sinful Beignet Cheeseburger, there’s now a new plant-based burger option playfully named the Floatworks Burger.
Beignets have been removed from the Sassagoula menu. Don’t worry!! You’ll just have to head to Scat Cat’s Cafe for your fried dough cravings. But if your sweet tooth must be satisfied then and there, look no further than Sassagoula’s Mardi Gras King Cake.
There have been quite a few changes in the “Italian Inspired” department. Vegetable pasta got a rename and is now “Pasta Primavera”. The 3 varieties of Flatbreads (meat lovers, veggie, cheese) have been removed and we now have a Super Slice available. The Cheese or Pepperoni “Fresh Baked Pizzas” are now listed as “Pizza Dinner”.
It looks like Copa Di Vino has replaced Mardi Grogs former Woodbridge wine offerings.
Sadly, all the specialty drinks have gone up in price.
Remember those specialty pretzels we recently told you about? These have been available at this spot for a while now, but this is the first time we’ve noticed a sign! Yep, you can grab a drink and a pretzel in one spot! So if you’re looking to eat your feelings after that $18.00 Hurricane, you can grab a Mickey Pretzel, Jalapeno Pretzel, or Cream Cheese Pretzel here.
We totally picked up a Jalapeno Mickey pretzel. 😉
Food Updates at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort- Riverside
We will now make our way over to Riverside where they, too, didn’t seem spared from menu changes.
Boatwright’s Dining Hall
In continuing the trend, a plant-based jambalaya has also been added to the menu.
At the Riverside Mill Food Court, the Plant-based burger has been replaced by the Mill Burger. It’s served with steak fries and is priced at $13.99.
The hot dog has been removed and has been replaced by a Classic cheeseburger.
The large pizza has been removed and we are left with the “Pizza Dinner.” Like at French Quarter, the 3 varieties of Flatbreads (meat lovers, veggie, cheese) have also been removed and we now have a Super Slice available.
The Salad & Sandwich station has removed the Garden Salad option but now has an upgraded menu board with additional salads listed.
A little salad never hurts when you’ve been eating all those tasty beignets!
Sad news for all you fans looking to guzzle down one of their delicious Hurricanes or an All That Jazz — we found here that menu prices have gone up. Cry Me A River.
We’ll be over here crying into our hurricanes. 😉
Merchandise Updates at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort- French Quarter
We were totally DIGGIN’ The new Rainbow 1970’s Disney Collection we found last week at World of Disney and we’re excited that it is now available at another location!
It’s time to Do The Hustle straight on over to Jackson Square at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter where we spotted the new Rainbow 1970’s Disney Collection for sale!
If you want to look TOTALLY GROOVY, you may be interested in the Rainbow 1970’s Disney Tank Top for $34.99.
Those groovy colors are CALLING to us!
