Snack Series: Beignets

Come on down to New Orleans! One of our favorite resorts to find vegan options is Port Orleans French Quarter’s Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory. Not only do they have several vegan entree options for meals, but one of the best vegan finds with the allergy friendly beignets! These beignets are vegan and gluten free, cooked in a shared fryer with other allergy free foods.

In early July they made a change to these beignets, they are finally Mickey shaped! So when we found out about the new shaped beignets, we had to go check them out.

As normal, I went to the Bakery Shop, spoke with a chef and ordered my vegan Mickey shaped beignets, and strawberry dipping sauce because it is AMAZING. If you order 3 beignets then it counts as a snack credit for the Disney Dining Plan, 6 does not. Within about 5 minutes my beignets were ready, much faster than previous times we’ve ordered.

Looking for Mickey Beignets

We went outside to enjoy our beignets and to my surprise upon opening the bag I saw they were just the normal rectangular shape they have always been, no Mickey heads in my bag. This was kind of a huge let down, because I was excited for another Mickey shaped food.

We enjoyed our beignets anyway, the shape doesn’t effect the taste. The beignets are a little dense, not necessarily the light and fluffy you’d expect. They are also great the next day if you are looking for an easy breakfast.

Back in 2014 I created Vegan Disney World after going to Walt Disney World several times and finding no resource for vegan options. Corey and I began this blog from our trips and have now moved closer to the mouse to eat around the parks on a weekly basis. Since the blog started we have cruised on Disney Cruise Line, gone to Tokyo Disneyland and to Disneyland in California!
