The Disney Wonder departed its New Orleans port last week as it set sail for tropical destinations.
For the maiden voyages out of NOLA, Disney sold an exclusive new t-shirt to mark the occasion, which turned into a pretty hot commodity!
If you’re anything like us, just about any vacation is better with Mickey Mouse. And now that the 2020 Disney Cruise Line itineraries have been released, there’s no better time to explore ports all over the world!
Get your party on, because it’s Mardi Gras everyday at Port Orleans Resort — French Quarter! And for a little taste of New Orleans, you don’t have to look any further than Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory.
Our last visit for breakfast was some time ago. But I still knew I could expect to find some unique items for lunch that can’t be found in many other spots on property, even including the French Quarter’s sister resort, Riverside. Naturally, the French Quarter has a distinct advantage to add some unique flair to its dining choices, since its New Orleans vibe and theming is so naturally linked with Cajun and Southern cuisine.
Never fear, the less adventurous eaters in your group will find plenty of Counter Service staples here, too. But today we’d like to explore what makes Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory unique (aside from that tongue-twister of a name, that is ;-D).

Located adjacent to the main Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen table service restaurant in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District, this counter service spot serves up some great, quick options.
We showed you the icy Sno-Balls last year, and now it’s time to share the most prized (in my opinion) option on the menu!
The Express location of Ralph Brennan’s offers the same New Orleans vintage vibe as the table service restaurant, but with no indoor seating. This is strictly and “order it to-go” kinda place, though there are several tables outside.
One cool feature, though: see that area behind the glass? It’s actually an “on stage” area where employees are making beignets!
After you taste a beignet from here, you’re pretty much guaranteed to want to duplicate the magic at home (or at least try). For the adventurous, Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix is sold here as well.
Once your order is ready, you’ll [Read more…]
