Any Disney Guest who has set foot in a Disney Resort or Disney Park knows that Disney is not to be underestimated when it comes to food. Some Disney entrees, desserts, or beverages are complex and luxurious (particularly for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary and for the holidays)–but others are simple, fattening, and comforting! If watching Princess Tiana make authentic New Orleans beignets and douse them in sugar was your favorite part of the Disney movie “Princess and the Frog”, then you’ll be pleased to hear that one of the most comforting, indulgent desserts of all has returned to Disney: the beignet! These fried dough treats are essentially a warm, sweet hug on a plate–topped with icing sugar–and Disney is of course adding a signature Walt Disney World touch to the dessert by making beignets that are Mickey-shaped. Any Disney Guest who loves a Mickey ice cream bar or a Mickey waffle will definitely want Mickey-shaped beignets!

These Mickey Mouse beignets can be found at Scat Cat’s Club Cafe within the French Quarter of Walt Disney World’s Port Orleans Resort. According to the Disney website, these Mickey-shaped beignets will be available year-round; if you order the “Baton Rouge Beignets”, you’ll get two beignets “jazzed up with your choice of Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kahlúa, or RumChata”. So what are you waiting for? Head on down to the Scat Cat’s Club Cafe for two New Orleans-style beignets with a Mickey Mouse twist. It’s the perfect way to pay homage to the Ultimate Princess Celebration and honor Princess Tiana, who has not only been honored during World Princess Week but is also being represented in a very special way during Walt Disney World’s Princess Marathons next year!
